Congrats mrschips.
Who was your CO?
Sounds like around the 6 month mark is what they are granting the visas at the moment.
We applied late October, so hopefully we are not many months away also.

application sent

Hi everyone! Its been a while since I posted here because a lot has happened since the last time I was on here. My partner and I were ready to apply and then the whole online thing came around and we decided to switch from a paper application to an online one. we applied and paid just a few days ago (end of last week) and already we know who our CO is and he already sent a request for more documents and we scheduled in my partners medicals. now we are just madly scanning more things. we hadn't even finished uploading all of our stuff when our CO sent us a request for more info. we are doing offshore spouse by de facto through the Berlin office. so i am nervous and anxious but excited we finally have this show on the road! now lets just see how long it all takes.

We handed in our partner visa to the Berlin embassy in late October 2013. Has anyone else who handed their visas in around about this time heard anything? Any ideas of processing times at the moment?

Hi all, first post.... I have been lurking for a bit....

We applied in October 2013, application was sent in mid-October (we are using an immigration agent in Australia), confirmation with CO received late October (KM is the CO, in Berlin).

My partner is from Italy, we are applying for a class 300 prospective spouse. She did medicals in November (early Nov).

The immigration agent said we have a very simple, and very complete application, so it shouldn't take 'too long'... but as you all know, there are no guarantees on timing in this game!

There have been no communications from the embassy, aside from an initial request for an extra certificate, this request came at the same time as the confirmation of CO in late Oct. We sent the extra info in within a week or 2, since then.... complete radio silence.

We are also (obviously) very interested in current processing times... it is now getting close to 5 months since our application went in (4.5 mths since our CO's first contact). In the first contact he said 'current processing times are 6-9 months (approximately)'.... but there is a lot of conflicting info. The Aus immi site says 5 months for a non-restricted country (so Italy is OK here), but some info on the Berlin embassy site says 8-9 mths.

Waiting, waiting, waiting... very very impatiently!

S.

Hi all - Just a quick recap on our status in the hopes it helps shed any light on the happenings in Berlin.
Husband and I applied 25 September with extra docs sent less than 3 days later. So all finalised by end of September.

Ours is a spouse visa and we have been updating our CO of our status throughout the process (we have been travelling abroad and we are currently in Australia).

By the looks of things ours might (fingers tightly crossed) be just around the corner. We sure are excited! According to my basic maths skills ours might, all going according to plan, be granted on or around March the 13th.

They say patience is a virtue...

Hey omamaamansikka and place2be,

thanks for the updates. Looks like as if we have handed in the visa applications around the same time. I will let you know once we hear anything from our CO....
