How do you survive people?
Such a distant memory now... Our survival was seeing each other regularly. The booking of the trips gave us something to look forward to and that we would be able to see and be with each other in person.

That would be the best Mish and you are so lucky that you were able to do that, but everyone's situation is different and sometimes it's just impossible to book trips every few months.

Yes everyones situation is different and you just have to do what you can. Luck has nothing to do with it ... effort is what does it. People see it is lucky I could go about every 4 months but noone knows that some of the leave is leave without pay or that every cent is counted for and had to save so hard by not going out shopping or very rarely going out with friends.

I had to do what was necessary to be able to afford to go over there.

There are even some that put everything on their credit card to see their partners! I salute those people for not worrying about all those interest charges.

Thanks for your response Mish, but I think you just misunderstood me. When I said different situations I didn't mean the money aspect at all.

Anyway it's not related to the topic. Sorry Berlin Embassy Processing Time guys for interfering.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all hanging in there with your sanity!

Only 5 days left until July!

I'm going to write our case worker (MB) on Friday (When we will have been waiting 6 months) asking if there is any chance he could indicate a timeline in which our visa will be 'finalised'......i'm praying he says July.

Am i right in saying sAsAk1, Eestiaus, Freddie, Sydney and myself are all the couples at, around or past the six month mark?

Good luck everyone!

Yeah we are just barely hanging on and i have MB as well and just messaged him a few days ago asking how our case is going and he hasnt replied at all, so probably no use emailing him haha. Anyway you are right that the berliners quoted above are all pasted 6 months.

Goodluck every one and all the best

Today I spoke to someone who used to be high up in immigration and the situation is.
Each embassy is given an x amount of visas that they can release each calendar year (has nothing to do with financial year)and measered quarterly so if they have reached the limit in one quarter they have no choice but to push out the remaining applications to next quarter. Depending on the number of applications they are processed in order and there is no way to speed up the process.I have already emailed our CO being JV from Berlin but no response and no indication when the visa will be granted.

Sorry if i missed you Arthurkiss!

Thanks for the info.

well, at least we know that they have probably reached their limit for the quarter...maybe it would be better if i wrote on July 1st haha. I really hope July is good to us all. It's so difficult being kept in the dark like this....i wish our case workers wrote us updates and told us when our case was 'locked in' for finalisation or at least explained the hold up....
