You get the decision via email. Australia is visa label free. Just print the grant incase you need it at any airports before you arrive in Australia.

Interview lasted 1 hour 40 minutes and were interviewed over the phone by 3 case officers at the same time(one case officer was interviewing me and the other two were interviewing my partner).the level of detail they went into was ridiculous and honestly we have a straight forward application.more info and proof required and waiting time 7-9 months. We are at 5.5 months now.

Wow, arthur, that sounds rough. Sounds like they were concerned about the relationship for some reason. Hopefully you have the additional info they asked for?

Sounds scary. After waiting over 6 months hope we don't have to go thru that. I'm so sad and depressed being separated from my partner I would probably cry the whole time. At least it sounds hopeful for you . Not liking the 7-9 month wait though.

I do but its a straight forward application....I dont believe any aspects of the relationship is suspicios or complicated....so who knows
Sorry that you had such a terrible experience with the interview. Sounds weird considering your case is not too complicated...
Could you explain please what do you mean by straight forward application?

Are you applying for 309 as spouse or de facto? Maybe you didn't live together long enough or maybe not enough financial evidence?

Just thoughts really. Usually they only interview people from high risk countries. The last person I heard of that was interviewed from berlin embassy was from Ghana.

Good luck :)

Hello to everyone:)

I was following the forum for about 2 weeks..no it's time to write something.
We applied for PMV (300) in mid april.Our CO is JV.
I did my medicals 4 weeks after ...since then I heard nothing....just got an e-mail which confirmed that all my documents were complete and that she received the results from my medicals.
So we just over 4,5 months.
For us it was to risky to apply for the partner visa 309 because we never lived 12 months together. We've been seperated for a few months in between since we first dated dec 2012.
Anyone else waiting for a PMV to get granted?:)

Guys,

Do you think that some visa will come through now that a new month has just begun? Since we really don't know how it works in Berlin time wise I'm just guessing they reached a certain number in August so maybe September will be a good one for a few of us?

Omg I feel so sorry for you :/ I forgot if you ever tried contacting them? Although I assume they'd never say anything too detailed.
We've emailed our CO a few times but he has never replied. Last time we heard anything at all was end of Dec.
Have been thinking about calling them, but after all...when we applied they said at least 6-9 months and we're not up to 9 months yet. If we haven't heard anything after 9 months we're gonna give him a call.
