We applied in Berlin for a PMV (subclass 300) for my fiance.
Application date 27 August 2014.
That's right end of August everybody!!!! )))))
CO got in touch with us October.
Medicals were requested & sent in November.

We were sent an email that the visa is ready to be finilised and my fiance has to leave the country for her visa to be granted (as she is currently in Australia with a tourist visa).

This is great news for everyone. This means they are working on August applications and September should soon follow.

Ours took 8 months 3 weeks.
Good luck to everyone, Hope yours get granted soon
Congratulations 😀 very good news.

So should my partner go for the Police and medical checks now or wait?

Thanks for any advice.
We sent our police check with the application on 27 August 2014. the medical was requested mid Nov and they said the same thing to us. We did the medical 4 days later and was sent within the week. I say the quicker you do it the better. i dont think you will need to do it twice cause the the checks are valid for 12 months so don't let that scare you.

ours process time took 8 months 3 weeks, 27 August 2014 -23 April 2015.

Good luck!!

Why haven't any other August applications been processed?

Dear fghtrpltf16,

Awesome news!!!!! Congrats. It really gives me hope. May I ask what country your fiance is from and what the initials of your CO are?

Thanks and all the best.

Congratulations, that is great news!

Just one thing - if you applied on August 27, that's 7 months and 3 weeks, not 8 months and 3 weeks?!

Hello everyone. Late reply as we have been getting stuff organised.

The VISA came through for us too.

Applied: August 13th 2014
VISA Granted: April 20th 2015

Wait all up was: 8 months 1 week.

Thank you so much to everyone who assisted us over the past 8 months. We will never forget it. And to everyone else waiting we wish you all the best of luck with the VISA application and your future together in Australia.

We are excited to have all of this behind us and now we can look forward to the next stage of our lives and getting ourselves setup together.

Thank you again to everyone who has offered advice and answered our crazy questions.

Great news. So it doesn't look like the extended waiting time of 10-14 months for applications after July 2014 doesn't apply anymore? I wonder why?

fingers crossed Berlin keeps going like this and the 10-14 months is only a worst case warning for us all. We applied for our PMV in Dec so hopefully an approval in sept / oct
