Hi rhirhi,

We have MB as our case worker. He even sent me an email saying he would get back to me 6 months after the initial application... But nothing so far.

I decided to send an email to my case officer and asked if he could give us an indication. He replied quite quickly and said that our case was locked in for finalisation in July. I think things are taking longer because of the end of the financial year in Australia.

omg this is beyond frustrating....i don't know what to do.....my partner has to give at least two months notice to his work and we need to be in Australia by October....we applied two weeks after you! If they aren't planning on telling us Until August it puts us in a really difficult situation -_- ARGH

All the best though! I hope they grant you the visa on July 1st!

Did you all send in the Form 888's or not until requested?

Lodged our application with snail-mail from Sweden 29th Oct (with all docs incl. health and police). Less then a week later they took the money from our account and on 18th Dec we recieved an email where our CO confirmed everything. We have not heard anything since then. Our application should be very straight forward so this is really enoying.

Freddie thats just ridiculous! You're way passed 7MONTHS! Just a quick question did you give in the form 888's? because we didnt and now i'm just wondering if others who lodge at berlin did.

Freddie have you tried emailing your case worker to ask for any process? Who is your CO?

Eestiaus are you from a high risk country? If your case officer hasn't asked for them maybe you could write a quick email offering too. But if you often send emails maybe just wait until they ask?

Edit: just looked back and saw you are. I wouldn't worry too much though because they can't reject you on the basis you didn't provide any 888's when it says not too... Maybe just write your case worker a note that you are willing to provide form 888's if needed. Keep in mind 'high risk' countries do tend to take a little longer....it is annoying but it doesn't mean anything is going 'wrong'.

Maybe nobody's being approved lately cause visas are capped? Maybe they're just waiting for new financial year to start.
