ok this just sound like it will delay the assessments...very strange!
Maybe they are looking for other evidence and if they are not satisfied with what applicants have submitted they will ask for the 888´s.Who knows?
Very hard to know what they want...lol

Hello, I remember they said it to me also when I phoned to London at the call center: do not give 888 form unless they ask you so.
Anyway, it will be a 7 months wait. They need to justify their time lapse in some way. If not why should it take so long, if they have already everything in their hands???
So they will ask for it at a later stage.

Hi AJ67,

Transit in Abu Dhabi was part of my usual route between Australia and Jordan, where I lived with my husband, and I have seen all sorts of things being worn without trouble. My own usual, since I was flying into Jordan - another country where's it's important to be modestly dressed - was a top with full or three-quarter sleeves and either trousers or a long skirt. But no matter what you wear you will likely receive stares from other people local to the region who are also transitting through - just ignore that. You certainly won't get into trouble in the airport.

Have a safe trip and enjoy your reunion!

Still seems so strange to me! It must be that with the length of time these are taking now they're concerned the statements are too out-of-date by the time they get around to processing. Still bizarre, given that if you applied without 2 Forms 888 onshore (with an 820) there's no way they'd process it! Crazy.

Hey wonderful berliners,

A new week, new hope. Thank heavens we do not have a holiday coming up soon.

Just a quick question. What happens if I move out of Germany before my visa is granted? I have decided to leave Germany in mid August (well, I am done with my studies) and go back to Kenya or Canada and wait out the visa. Anyone ever moved away from the country where they lodged their application?

I don't think it matters where you are as long as you inform your CO about it...

There's just a form you have to send in to change your address, that's all. Very easy.

Hi guys,
I was just wondering, if you get granted the Temporary residency, after two years when you are assessed for permanent residency do you have to pay extra money for it? Today I spoke to a lady who said she was applying for her PR and it will cost $5000!! She was on a 457 visa though.

No, because with the 309/100 you apply for both stages at the same time, so the fee you pay covers the whole processing.

It's a different story with the PMV (300) though, which requires an initial application with its own application fee, and then another application for the 820/801, so it amounts to three applications all together. But PMV holders have reduced rates for the married visa, which evens the playing field as far as fees are concerned.

So don't worry, the initial 2700 or so you pay will cover it all!
