Nothing happening in Berlin? Seems awfully quiet.

We had some people who applied in late May 2014 get their approvals recently. From reading the London Embassy thread they are in a similar boat to all of us.

No one who has applied in June appears to have got approvals for the Berlin or London embassy's yet - which in itself is odd as we are half way through February already and no one has had any updates.

Is there anyone in this thread that applied in June?

Hey guys,

Yeah, its really quiet here! We applied 2.6.2014.

We've been asking our CO whats the situation. We wrote to him in the end of January and he asked us to write back if we haven't heard from him by mid February. We didn't, so we wrote again 15.2. and got a reply that they might be able to finalize my visa in the first week/weeks of march.

We shall see what happens!

We have already bought our tickets back to Australia for 1.4. so we really hope it goes through before that! I know its not what they recommend to do but my partners work requires him to go so..........

By the sound of what our Co is messaging to us and reading the London thread, the processing time is little bit over 9 months at the moment...?

Yep generally an 8-9 month wait is what people have been experiencing. For August applications onwards its gone up to 10-14 months.

So I'm guessing they will increase processing times for late June/July applications up to 9 months? And then hopefully August applications are only a 10 month wait :-/

I applied for a PMV on 17 September 2014. Five months and one day of waiting. I really hope it only takes 10 or a max of 11 months
I wish that the people who applied in June will get their visa soon!

Hey Bee14, we applied almost exactly at the same time. Do you mind me asking what your progress has been so far?

I hope we'll get some good news from someone in February, would be a shame if noone got approved in an entire month!

Hi European,

I got a message from my CO in December saying that he had all the documents he required. That was it.

Last week of February now and it looks like no applications have been approved this month?

Is this how the embassys are pushing the processing times out to 10-14 months by completly refusing to approve applications in some months?

A lot of people who applied in May 2014 got approvals last month, It looks like June applications should be processed next. How many people are waiting who applied in May and June?

I know it's so frustrating. But bear in mind that not everyone who applied in June 2014 is on this forum. And/or maybe they are also close to running out of quota for the period July 2014 to June 2015. And/Or they are just busy doing other things as well. In the official blog of the Australian ambassador to Germany, Mr Ritchie describes his activities in which his colleague are involved too. You knows how much time they actually spend on the visa processing.
