Question Unsure whether to lodge PMV in Auckland or Wellington?

Hey - my fiance and I are just about ready to lodge our PMV but wondering if there would be any difference lodging in Auckland or Wellington? We've tried ringing to no avail (round and round in circles with automated messages)
I'm guessing the Auckland embassy would be busier, so thinking it might be quicker sending our app to the Wellington one if they have less apps? No idea really, just hoping someone might have a clue!
We've used an agent and the application is pretty well put together so hoping it won't be anywhere near the 6-12 months quoted.........

From what posters have been saying recently, processing times everywhere seem to be taking longer on average not matter where you apply. This seems to be because of the big shake-up that has been going in with visa policy, and with the departments ongoing battle to process asylum seeker visas.

But, without going into all that, I would just apply at the one closest to you as you will most likely have to go for an interview.
