During their consultation, the client discussed his situation and explained to Simon why he failed to declare his medical condition. Simon presented to him the possible outcomes of his case and what steps they could take to receive a successful result. After the phone consultation, Simon prepared a letter of engagement for the client to consider. The client signed and Simon took on the case.
Simon immediately worked on the client’s medical waiver with his resident visa application. He worked with the client to have all the requirements ready so that when a case officer asks for information, they will be ready to send them across. After he submitted the application, as expected, several communications with the case officer followed.
Once all the requirements were submitted, and queries from INZ were fulfilled, the only step left was to wait for the result.
After a few months, the client received a favourable outcome. He is now a resident of New Zealand! Note: The client and Simon never once met in person and conducted all communications through our advanced IT system. It was due to the restrictions on travelling and meetings because of Covid-19. However, when the restrictions got lifted, our firm decided to continue the no face to face meeting policy after we found out it was more practical and efficient.
