Ha i applied in May and i still havent heard a thing, i think it depends on who you get as a CO and the application, some are more complexed than others, i have to think like this as i would cry otherwise,

Hi all,

I have just found this thread and thought I'd share our timeline.

Date of submission: may 8th 2012
meds submitted: 1 week later
police check submitted: with application:
category of risk: high
time frame quoted: initially 12 months but emails from case office have stated 7-9 months.
migration agent used: yes but i dont think he is helpful and will be making a complaint when returning to Australia.



So we fall into the bracket of May applications and early may at that. We had to submit some documents requested in October that included an updated police check, and birth certificate, since then we hadn't heard a thing so i requested my case officer to ask for an update. I also sent the email to the case officer. I was informed that my case officer had changed but the application was in the final stages of processing and that they would be in touch early Jan 2013. Myself and my partner are flying to Australia on a tourist visa on the 7th of Jan 2013. We are not sure if we will be required for an interview as we are not married but i think submitted a lot of paperwork to support our relationship and had many friends and family statements to go with our application as well.
My only question is , is no news really good news at this point? the thought of appealing a negative decision makes me sigh heavily.

thanks in advance and hope everyone elses applications haven't been caught up too much in the overworked and understaffed berlin office that it seems these days.

From what I have read, no news is good news. If there are problems with your application they tend to contact you ASAP so if they said it was in the final stages of processing I wouldn't think they would suddenly reject your application.

I was searching my computor last night and came across my old emails from a hotmail account that had being hacked lets say, anyhow through windows live i found all my old emails which contained a folder VISA, as i was going through them i saw an email i must have missed confirming my application from Berlin in JUNE it said

Acknowledgement of valid application for a PROSPECTIVE MARRIAGE (Class TO) PROSPECTIVE MARRIAGE (Subclass 300) visa.
This was sent to the agency and then forwarded onto me, the thing is it was confirmed by AK showing her agent number ect, now i presumed that this would be the CO would this be correct and she has assigned KM to deal with the application or is this just a person who confirms that everything is ok? Also what does the (class TO) mean is this revelant or something normal. Thanks guys in advance for any replies.

Louise
