The scan needs to be good quality colour + sworn translation of documents if they aren't in english.
Excellent! Thank you alex01!

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 !
Thanks

I'm not sure why ours went through sooner, but you shouldn't be worried, because you are still well below the predicted time frame for the visa.

From what I have read on this forum there are only a few case officers in the Berlin office (e.g BJ and some others etc).

Now with Australia accepting some 6 or 12k Syrian refugees (Can't remember exact figure) and if we assume that a vast majority are to be handled in the Berlin office, then does this mean the priority order shifts as follows for our current case officers in the Berlin office?

- refugees first
- migration requests (309/100 etc) second

Or am I to assume there are designated case officers for migration requests (like 309/100 forms etc).

The forums just seem to have gone quite recently

Thanks for your help Brendan!
I think it is OK as they contacted us today asking us to do our Police Clearance and Character Check
Cheers

Wink Six months passes

It's been a bit quiet here.
We are exactly 6 months today since we applied for 309.
CO assigned.
Police checks done.
The Interview done.
I hope we will have to do our medical check soon.
It seems like London and Berlin are granting visas in 8-9 months. It gives some hope.
However, Christmas is coming, I hope it won't slow down too much ...
I am just curious if anyone waiting ard 6-7 month got a request to do medicals?

From what I understand, you don't need to wait to do the medical. It's just that it expires after 12 months, so it's best not to do it too soon after applying.

Congratulations we are only a month behind you!
Could I ask who was your CO?
Is 27th April your day of health check expiry day too?
That's probably the best early Xmas present
Best wishes
