Great news dutchrocky!!

My partner applied August 13th, so if they keep up this consistency then hopefully we will have an update in the next 4-6 weeks :-)

Keep everyone posted :-)

I applied for a prospective marriage visa in July 2014 and then proceeded to fly down here(on a 1 year tourist visa) to be with my fiancÚ and her 2 kids that I have taken on as my own, due to the father not being in their lives. We have been together since May 2013, unfortunately I had to go back to Denmark(where I'm from) in November 2013 and until I returned in July '14.
On Friday the 13th of this month I finally heard from a CO, KM. from Berlin. He requested a few more documents of which I have uploaded just now.
Me and my Australian partner are getting married on the 1st of May(I can't wait!).
Now after that rather long introduction here comes my question. Seen as I had not provided all necessary documents back when I submitted the application, am I screwed now? What are your experiences? I know not to expect anything, so I just hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
Seen as I have had word from my CO and he specifically requested that I uploaded the remaining documents before this Friday the 27th of March, could it be that it is because I am to be part of the processing and approving around April?
Sorry for the novel, our heads are so filled with questions about everything and until I hear more from K I feel like I shouldn't bombard him with questions.
Hi ThomasDK,

I don't think you'll be screwed. He just asked you for your missing documents which you provided. Immigration always seems to give a timeframe for handing in documents. I know one girl who applied for a student visa and they wanted to have more information. She was given two or three weeks to hand in what they needed.
Well, you applied in July 2014 and I'm positive that you'll have your visa granted sometime in April.

Does anyone know what the Berlin embassy will be doing in June? Because if July applications are being processed in April the next round of people with applications is August applications - which have the 10-14month processing times attached to them.

So the earliest August applications can apparently be done is June and the latest is October. Which leaves the Berlin Embassy potentially not doing much between May to October depending how fast they process these applications.

Here is hoping they keep the same pace up! and give the August applications a nice surprise in May instead of June...or July....or August...or September...or October....

Could we wait for 10 hours before passing the immigration check point (the hallway between the plane and the checkpoint) until it is approved? If so, when they scan the visa, will it then show as a partner visa instead of the tourist visa?

The Airlines are picky as picky , nowadays.
If you don't have a valid Visa.. whatever kind.. to enter into Australia , they even have a hard time to let you fly from Europe to Singapore as a stopover.. if it is a change if plane there for example..
I know all about it.
I have a hassle all the time when I fly to Australia because of just one letter in my surname...
It is a Swedish ┼
In my passport My name is spelt with an ┼
The Ticket is always spell an ┼ as double A ( AA) and in the australian Visa it's spelt with a single A..
And the airlines always have a hard time to even find my Visa in their system because of this..
They rather refuse me onboard than the risk of getting a hefty Fine, for bringing someone to Australia without a valid Visa..
As soon as I get my PR I'm going to apply for a Label in my passport...
Last time I came back from New Zealand it took them 20 minutes to find me in their system.. at immigration in Melbourne

Very good question. I certainly hope this isn't the case of them doing nothing between this time, othewise it will mean ours won't be approved until February!

What would they be doing during the this time? Are they taking a 4 month holiday or something? Wouldn't surprise me!!

I've only just joined this forum but thought I'd let you know that we received an email notification yesterday that my partners visa has just been granted. We applied on the 9th of July 2014.

Wow!!! Jimellie and Dutchrocky are both in the same boat now. Thats great news for you both :-)

I am very interested to see how quick they process the August application, as this is when the 10-14 month processing times kicked in. It also means that the earliest August applications should be processed is June.

.....So what is the Berlin Embassy doing in May? And it also begs the question that they can potentially push August applications out to October..... So if that ends up being the case, what will they be doing in May, June, July, August and September?

Maybe give them a call and ask? Very curious to know this. I wonder if they just said 10-14 months because they expected more applications, or is it due to government quotas? I really hope it's the former.
