GiuliaM i have MB too! We applied in late december and he's told us to wait until late April to submit our medcials so our 'entry date' will be further back allowing us more time. He said he will 'finalise' it around June/July.....they pretty much seem to be waiting for the 6 month mark haha

Oh really?! Did he contact you straight away or did you ask him for information first? I only know who my CO is cause I emailed the support centre and they told me if I have some details to edit to email my Co and then they gave me his name; I didn't even know I was assigned one already!

My main concern is that I did my medicals before leaving Australia in Jan (I'm appling for PMV 300) and I submitted everything at the end of February, I hope it's not gonna be a major problem, and I don't wanna email him asking trivial questions..

@GiuliaM
The exact same thing happened to us...after waiting over 1 month to be assigned a case worker we emailed Berlin and they told us who our case worker is (the case worker didn't contact us at all until we started asking questions.) Eventually he asked us for some further documents (which we had provided already) and told us to get a medical check and a police clearance but wait until the end of may so we have a later date of entry (giving us more time to enter Australia.) We phoned him and asked if we should do the same with the medicals because normally they go hand in hand and he said yes.....then he started counting the months from when we applied and told us he would finalise the visa in June/July because of the waiting period haha.

I don't think it will be any problem that you already did your medicals....i just think you will still have to wait six months at least for the visa because of the 'waiting times'. The only advantage to submitting them later is not being as rushed to move because your last entry date is later on

Thumbs up

A new week full of new hopes, enthusiasm and excitement! Let's hope that those holidays made a world of difference to the CO team in Berlin and they come back refreshed and full of vigor!

Hey,

This is my first post in the forum but I've been following this one for a while. Me and my Australian boyfriend applied for the 309 visa in mid November 2013.
We got our CO on 05 Dec-13. Medicals and police check was in the application when we sent it in. On 11 Dec-13 we sent in the extra documents which was asked for in our first respond from our CO. Since then we haven't heard from our CO except from when we sent a question about my upcoming tourist visa on which he replied within the same hour.

Following this thread and trying to calculate the waiting times at the Berlin office have now become my biggest hobby Looking at the waiting times now it seams to be 6 months and that means we hopefully will hear from them in May or June. Fingers crossed

I'm currently in Australia on a tourist visa (arrived last week) because I couldn't stand waiting alone in Sweden anymore and was wondering if any of you know what I need to do in regards of changing my contact details?

I emailed my case officer telling him about my plan and with the exact dates of my three month stay here. He didn't really reply in a way that made me feel safe about them really knowing I'm not in Sweden anymore. And seeing I don't want to irritate him by emailing again I thought I would ask you guys. My Swedish phone number doesn't work in Oz and reading back in the forum some have gotten their visa news over the phone, which makes me a bit nervous. So any recommendations of what I should do? I tried to look for a form on the immi website but couldn't really find any suitable ones.

My tourist visa expires on 10 June so i really hope I will have a decision by then. Other wise I will have to go to NZ and back. Which I'm hoping to avoid since that will be what I have to do again when I actually get the partner visa. Not that I don't like a holiday in NZ but I think I'll be sick of it by then

Thanks in advance and thank you for all of your sharing in this thread. It really helps when all you do is waiting and wondering!
