Has your husband lived anywhere else apart from Greece? If so they may be doing security checks and this can take awhile.

K&k...I am in the same situation as you but with the Belgrade Embassy.
We applied November 3rd last year and submitted medicals and police check with the application. We are now coming up to 11.5 months soon and my fiance's police check has also expired and his medical will expire soon too.
I emailed the service centre (as we don't have our CO direct email address) and was given a very standard reply saying the processing times are 10-14 months and if our CO needs anything, they will contact us.
It is very frustrating and I feel your frustration. I have not seen my fiance since January. The end must be soon surely?!

Hi guys! I'd like to share my experience with you... I got my 309 partner visa yesterday!!! I've always read the forum and I want to thank everyone for all the tips i found here... Here the details of my visa application:
- application date: 29 January 2015; online application through Berlin
- police check provided with the application (I obtained the police check on november 2014)
- only email received from my CO (MB) on 25 March, requesting Medical examination in September 2015 (done on 1 september 2015)
- i visited my partner in Australia from march to june 2015 on a 3 months sponsored family visitor visa and I obtained the second visitor visa in August. I arrived in Australia in September and on 1 October I received an email from the family migration team stating that they were ready to finalise my application and I needed to depart Australia
- we arrived in Bali yesterday, 14 october, and I received my visa grant after a couple of hours!!!
- so waiting time 8.5 months...!

I'm so happy! To the ones still waiting, I'm sure your time will come soon!!
Thanks again

Hi everyone,
This is my first post to this forum and hope I'm doing the right thing.
My 11 year old son and I are in The Nehterlands now since 21st of April 2015 and are waiting for my 309 visa to be granted (or not), wich is extremely nerve wrecking as I'm sure you all know. My Australian husband of 12 years had to stay behind and I have not seen him, apart from webchats for 6 months now.
I have read alot of the posts on this forum and am a bit worried now. When I was working with immigration in Melbourne I was told that it would take 6 months at the most, but here I read posts with waiting times up to 14 months.
I'm also not completely sure if it makes a difference that my Australian son is with me, and if we are in priority group 1 or not.
Cheers,
Ellis

My application was received by Berlin on 23rd of June and I got a CO straight away, Police check were received on 25 of August and medical was all finalized on 10th of September.

Hi Ellis, and welcome to the club :-). Partner visas are priority 1 always. Have a child will not speed anything up but you will get a permanent visa immediately (100) as you are married for 3+ years. It is unlikely to take that long. Most visas are being issued after around 8-9 months currently. It may slow down during Christmas though but you should have yours by Easter I would think.

I hope that's helps.
