Do you mind me asking ypu progress?

Hi chocolate33,

I misinterpreted one of your previous posts. I didn't get you asked for the initial entry date.

If they haven't processed the visa by the time your medical and your police check(s) expire, unfortunately they will ask you to get a new medical and new police checks + translation(s). If they grant it before they expire, your latest initial entry date is likely to be a day before the medical and the police checks expire (whichever expires first). But it doesn't have to be that case. I have one friend who was only given one month to enter Australia although she had 5 more months until her medical and her police checks expired. Good luck.

Yes that will mean you'll need to get another police check done if you want to move after May.

We got the police check and medical in December last year.

Thanks to everyone for your replies. I'm guessing we will probably have to have the police checks re-done as they will expire shortly.
Thanks for your advice/information.
Much appreciated.
Kind regards

Guys, I can't believe it!!! Just checked my emails and there it was: THE GRANT EMAIL!!
Only just saw Bee's message a few minutes before that. I am over the moon, can't wait for my husband to come home from work so I can open a bottle of champagne!

I also applied on September 17, 2014, grant date May 5, 2015. I got Subclass 100 straight away by the way.

Maybe Berlin's new policy is "underpromise, overdeliver" now. I didn't expect anything from them before June.

Oh and even though my Medical and the Police checks expire on September 2, I have until September 30 to enter Australia!

So I hope this lifts the people who are still waiting up a bit!

Good luck everyone!!

Wow! Congrats, European! That is so cool and I'm happy for both of you. All the best to you.

Me again!
We emailed our case officer last night to let her know that we had booked in for the requested medical. we received an automated response stating that she was out of the officer until may 26th. my partner's police check expires on the 16th. should we organise another police check in between now and the 26th? or should we wait to receive a request from her when she returns?
thanks in advance

I am getting really bloody worried now. As to my post on page 174 I applied in early July 2014. And I have yet to know anything about what is happening with my visa other than my Berlin CO requesting further documents. I messaged my CO a couple weeks ago and got an auto reply saying he would not be back in office until the 11th of May. Nothing about my email being forwarded to anyone else. Furthermore I contacted the immgiration throughout their online form to try to get some comfort to my distress, once again, just a generic auto reply saying they are working hard.

Hi ThomasDK,

I can understand that you are worried.

Ok, first of all I have the same CO as you do. You said you gave your CO the extra information he needed. Did you only sent it via email or did you also upload it in your immiaccount? In case you haven't uploaded it to your immiaccount as well I would do that too.
I think it's normal that the emails are not being forwarded to anyone else. So when he's back he'll look at it. In my case he sent me an email in December 2014 saying that he had all the documents and information he required and there was nothing else he needed. I think this is the reason why your application might be delayed. He needed more info from you and he hasn't looked at it yet or rather hasn't had the chance to look at it when he's out of office. The fact that you were given a due date to hand them in is normal. I wouldn't worry about it.
What kind of documents did he ask you to give if I may ask? They might be really crucial to decide on the grant of the visa.

Secondly, you said in a previous post that your fiancee has got two children. Maybe this is not viewed as a straight forward case but more complex. This might be a reason why it's unfortunately taking longer for you.

You said your intended date of marriage was 1 May. From your first post am I right to assume that you are in Australia right now? If yes, did you get married on that date or have you changed the date of marriage already?
