Silver Fern Visa 2017 Update

Good afternoon!

I’m currently at work so I didn’t get to see the events today unfold.

I am now getting a quota filled notification. Congratulations to those who have secured a slot. Really hope that my tips have been helpful to you all.

To share your experiences with other applicants, please do make an account at Pinoy Kiwi, it’s where all Filipino migrants converge.

You can also make a group on Facebook like the Working Holida Visa 2017 batch has done, if someone could facilitate please?

EDIT: Facebook group has been made. Those who got slots, please join! https://www.facebook.com/groups/326156944525468/

See you all in New Zealand!

  1. Hi! I was able to submit and already have an application number however i am still waiting for the link on the payment. Is this the new format/way? If only I could send the screenshot to you.

  2. I have successfully submitted my application.. thank you all for the tips.. i already recieve the list of requirements..

    @jane – have u receive an email from them?

      1. After u pay then within 10mins they will send u email of all the requiments.. what is the status of your application when u logged in?

        1. Missed to answer ur last question.. after u fill all the categories then it will dorect you to a gateway where u need to pay.. then your application status should be submitted and paid

    1. Hi John, I have successfully submitted my application too, but I still haven’t received the confirmation email from them =(
      I gave them a call a few days ago, they said they have received my application but it is still under process…I have a fishy feeling about this.
      I just wonder does anyone else facing the same issue like I did??

      By the way, thank you Mslab for the helpful tips=)

        1. Hi mslab

          Yes I did. I even got the receipt, but I still haven’t received the email yet. It’s worrying me to know that most of em received the email right away…

            1. Hi mslab,

              Thank you for replying. Yup, I’ve checked my inbox and junk mail multiple times in a day, still haven’t received a single thing from them….I’m almost losing my faith now T-T

              1. Hi again Bonjourdepro

                The fact that you got a receipt and you got charged means you have a slot.

                Don’t you think it’s time to load up some international call credits and ring INZ regarding your problem? Losing the fait isn’t an option.

                Some working holiday applicants earlier this year also had issues (wrong email address, etc) so you might having yours as well.

                +64 9 914 4100 You can put your number for a callback so you don’t have to wait for a while for someone to answer your call. Number to put in is 00 63 (if you’re from Philippines) area code then your number…

                Example: 00 63 917 8888 888

                1. Hi, thanks again Ms. Lab,

                  Ya, I think I will probably call them up again tomorrow. I actually had rung them 3 times since last week. The reason why I stopped was that they seemed pretty annoyed by me, and every time they will tell me my application is still in process. They even call me out on ringing too many times=( that’s why I felt so helpless…

    1. It means it was not submitted, hence not yet successful.. u can try to submit it on daily basis incase any slot will open or anyone backed down.. i am quite sure u did not completed all required field

  3. Once again, thank you mslab! Indeed, you’re a blessing to us. 😉

    Anyway, I have created FB page with name : Silver Fern Visa 2017
    Honestly, I have no idea how it works. At the moment, I make it on a public mode so anyone can check and search.

  4. I struggle with mine. But. I have it written completed pending submission. N i was unable to make payments. Coz it still states. Pending. What advice can you give me.

  5. Hi,
    I was able to apply for the Silver Fern job search visa on 28th Nov 2017. I received an email later asking me to submit the evidence to support my application. One of them is the Qualification assessment. Since my degree is not in the “List of exempted Qualifications”, i need to go for IQA.
    I have my original Degree cert and my Transcripts with me. However, according to the NZQA website, i think they are expecting my education institution to send these directly to them.
    I am an Indian nation and my university is JNTU, Hyderabad. Currently i am residing in Singapore.
    Any idea, will it be enough if i just send the docs to NZQA directly instead of involving my University(because i’m worried if they will do this or not).

      1. Hi Paula Isabel

        Due to the uncertainty of getting a level 7 degree, the IQA must be done first. What if you get a slot then your degree turns out to be only level 6?

  6. Hey Guys
    This may be a question for someone who followed SFV over the past years. What is the likelihood of a slot opening before 2018 round and how exactly they will go about it ? Will they announced a date or will it be pretty random

    Thanks

  7. hi mslab,
    I’m hoping na makagawa ka din ng blog post about silver fern application, like what you did with the very informative phil. working holiday visa application 2018.
    Thanks in advance.
    More power

  8. Hello! Thanks sa info. May tanong lang po ako about sa kung gaano kahabang time ang ibibigay sa’yo para magcomplete ng requirements. Thanks in advance.

    1. Ahhh nakita ko na po pala sa blog na ginawa mo. 3 months to submit the documents/requirements after securing the slot. Medyo worried lang kasi ako sa (IQA) result from NZQA. Feeling ko hindi ako level 7 degree. Lol. thank you
