I had a query and was hoping someone would have an answer -
Bit of background first -I'm australian and my fiance has an indian passport however has a german residence permit and has been living in Muenster for over 5 years.
I started a PMV 300 visa application for my fiance online on 30 Sep 2015 and started uploading all the documents as required.
On 1 Oct i received a mail from a CO saying he's looking into the case and provided a request for medicals and a single certificate proof even though i had not clicked on the ready for assessment box yet.
Anyways I uploaded all the documents as requested by 15 Oct 2015 and checked the ready for assessment button.
Now it has been over 2 weeks and i have yet to receive any correspondence from the CO about whats happening with the application.

I sent him an email to his personal address and have received no response at all.
Isnt the visa pretty much good to go if all the paperwork is in order and a case officer has been allocated?
The Immi website shows my application as 'assessment in progress'.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers
Jd
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but according to the Embassy web site the wait time is currently 10 to 14 months. Here is the site:

I believe processing time has gone up across the board since July 1st. However, some people have gotten their visa way earlier . For instance , my hubby applied in Madrid June 2014 and we were quoted 7-9 months , and he got his visa at 7.5 months

Hang in there .

Yes EDT it makes you wonder how wait times have nearly doubled in the last 12 months.

Hey everyone!

Just a quick update:

I have received my Partner visa (309) today!

I've applied on the 24th of February 2015, uploaded the police check on the 28th and did the medicals on the 8th of March so the whole process took 8 months and 10 days

Keep in mind that, apparently I'm from a high risk country (Poland).

Good luck to you all!

Congratulations to the two who posted today about their visa's being granted.
I'm a little confused (should I be worried ? ) I'm from a "low risk" country (England) and I applied before both of these (Feb 20th) and I'm still waiting.
Could it be because I'm in a queue with another case officer ? Thank you !

Hello,

Hoping someone can help regarding applying online.

We applied for a Partner (309) visa for my Dutch partner on 13 Oct 2015 via the Immi ELodgement Website; and have now submitted all the various attachments. Since he is Dutch I assume he will be processed in Berlin.

However, am a bit confused as what the Berlin page asks for and what the immi website asks for seems to be conflicting! I'm sure I have over-provided items since we included Stat Decs etc.

But the main thing I want to know is do we need to complete and submit the Berlin embassy's own Partner Migration Form? or is that just for paper applications?
I can't post the link fully so have added it with spaces

I'm pretty sure we have already addressed everything elsewhere in application.

Thanks heaps!
V

We applied via Berlin as well. You don't need to fill in the pdf. We only filled in the online application in june and were contacted a month later. If you are not sure or have questions you can also contact the Berlin office via phone.

Need advice for PMV online application via Berlin office!

We applied for the visa the beginning of the week and I am still uploading some of the supporting documents.

I have called the visa services from the Australian embassy in Berlin several times (just to be sure!) and each time I was told that for the online application none of the documents need to be certified.

However, I am getting a bit worried, because the document checklist mentions that you need to add:

- certified copy of passport
- certified copy of birth certificate

Can anybody tell me from experience whether you need to have certified copies or not? Thanks a lot!

You don't need to certify documents if you are sending them online.
The scan needs to be good quality colour + sworn translation of documents if they aren't in english.
