Hello Addy90,

The interview took 11 minutes. I expected at least 20-30 minutes, so I think it was very short.
The CO asked:
What is your partners job?
Are you together with your partner at the moment?
How long have you been apart?
How you contacted each other while apart?
Are you working at the moment?
Basically general questions in regards to your situation.

And she mentioned waiting time is up to 14 months, but most applications are granted in 8-9 months.
That's it.
Let's see what happens in coming months. Fingers crossed...

hi all
long time reader, first time poster.

for everyone's info to back up that berlin is processing a lot at the moment, my partner (from the Netherlands) received her 309 visa approval last week 3rd of September.
She applied on November 21st 2014, so it took 9.5 months.

Our CO was Anke, she requested further information as soon as we applied (including police/medical checks) and we submitted the medicals/police in June 2015.
A part from the initial confirmation and request for information we received no correspondence.

Hope this helps.
Good luck
Cameron

Hi all, lots of visa dust to everybody...
I hope someone can answer my question here... we applied for our visa in april, got CO assigned a month later ( 'pinklady'' by the way we got BJ too ) who requested that we do our medicals.. we had a bumpy ride with our medicals ( the doctor in Rome found a thyroid nodule, we had to do biopsy and then wait 2 months for the results - all was fine at the end ). So only now - 5th of September we have cleared our medicals.
So my question is : when do we actually start to count the months of waiting - the infamous processing timeline - from the date you apply or from the date your application is complete with all the police / meds/ no additional info asked.... we'd be gutted if finding out our thyroid problems pushed our application back for nearly 4 months....
that would be crazy - because of our medical issues we'd go past 12 month mark and then we'd have to do another medical which has cost us 500 euro alone....

has anyone taken a long time to finalize extra requested information or medicals ... have you had your visa delayed because of that......?

thank youuu

It's based from the time you apply. In your case April.
Not the time you submit your medicals.

Visa granted

Hello all,
At the beginning of August our CO requested updated police checks for my partner's visa application. We were finally able to send them through to Berlin yesterday (after being processed, certified and translated). Within thirty minutes of sending the documents through he received the confirmation email! He has his de facto partner visa.
We applied October 28 2014, so almost 11 months!
Thank you to everyone who answered my queries and questions; this forum has been a huge support for me!
Good luck to all of those still waiting. It's looking like this month many applications are coming through.
Regards, Virginia
