visa granted

Just as an update, here is my timeline for those waiting for news in the Berlin queue:
Applied: 27 October 2016
Visa granted: 8 March 2017

So it took near 4.5 months, including a six week wait because I had to redo my health check mid February, after some mix-up at the first one mid December.

The govt issued a subclass 100 permanent visa, as I have been married for nearly 10 years and our kids already have the Australian passport.

Good luck to all waiting in line! See you on the other side

Hello Berliners,

Please i need some clarification.I will be submitting my online PMV 300 in a couple of days and i will be grateful if anyone could help me with some information.

1. Is it mandatory to submit certified copies of requested docs or a scan original copy is enough?
2.How do we submit the 4 passport photos requested if one is doing an online application?.
3. Are applicant oblige to submit form 888 at the Berlin office?
4.How long does it take for Berlin office to request medical and police check?.
5.How do i go about the applicant and sponsor form? who is supposed to submit first?
6.Please i also need information about NOIM the notice to get married document. How long does it takes to obtain from Queensland( Gold Coast) and the cost?
7. Is it OK if the sponsor and applicant have similar photos and communication evidence? Do we submit evidence about the relationship as 1 or differently?

Please i will be glad to get some clarification before submitting.

SAMY

If applying online, colour scan original is fine. If applying via post you need certified copies

2.How do we submit the 4 passport photos requested if one is doing an online application?.
We literally scanned the passport photos in.

3. Are applicant oblige to submit form 888 at the Berlin office?
I dont really understand what you mean but yes you should ask friends/family (preferably Australian Citizens) to submit form 888 with your application

4.How long does it take for Berlin office to request medical and police check?.
Whenever the case officer is assigned to your case and requires this information...I dont think anybody would be able to give you a time frame on this one.

5.How do i go about the applicant and sponsor form? who is supposed to submit first?
applicant form should be completed first. You will need to complete the long form and then pay the fee. Then you will be able to upload your evidence.
The sponsor needs the applicant's application reference number to complete the sponsorship form. This cannot be done until application form is completed


6.Please i also need information about NOIM the notice to get married document. How long does it takes to obtain from Queensland( Gold Coast) and the cost?
This i have no idea. Have you tried to Google it or send an email to the relevant organisation?

7. Is it OK if the sponsor and applicant have similar photos and communication evidence? Do we submit evidence about the relationship as 1 or differently?
Yes i think so since it is evidence of the same relationship you would definitely have similar evidence e.g. bank statements, letters, photos. The majority of the evidence should be uploaded with the applicant's application and the sponsor should attach evidence relating to them e.g. statement of relationship, birth certificate/passport etc

Please i will be glad to get some clarification before submitting.

SAMY

Hey guys!

Just a quick update. I received the request for medicals and the police check today. So here's my timeline so far:

Visa submitted: 13th of Feb 2017
CO assigned, requests for medicals and police check: 28th of March 2017

Hopefully this indicates a quick and smooth processing time

PS. Case officer is B.
