Hey Guacemole,
Did you get a response on you e-mail at all?

An update here as well; received a request yesterday to upload proof of health insurance!

309 & 100 granted today from Berlin. So happy and relieved! We have a few friends that were applying around the same time (May-July 2018) from Berlin and we now all have our visas. Best of luck everyone, your time will come soon!

Hi all,

Very interesting to read all your experiences. We applied (309) on 8 August 2018 from the Netherlands and haven't heard anything since. It's been quite a bit over the median processing time so we are really really hoping to hear some positive news soon! Will keep you updated and do hope this thread stays alive and kickin!

Thanks for the update @risking and congratulations!
We applied in Nov 2018, so we are in high hopes after your news that we might be halfway through the wait
No assigned case officer though after 4 month. Our application was not front loaded with medical and police reports.

27 months!? Wow
Have you guys not heard a thing at all yet? If so, I would really try to contact the embassy if you haven't yet!
There's a lot of people applying on shore who have wait times like that, but I haven't heard them being that long at Berlin office!
Best of luck Sunshinee!

Yes, we have heard from them a few times and they have asked for police checks and health examination, twice. However, apart from that, nothing else really. We do update regularly with our daily lives and all and, we do email them and gave called them but nothing is working.. at this point i honestly don't know what to do. I've never heard of anyone else taking this long.. it does scary me

Not really much of a response, turned out e-mailing them wasn't an option, but I was in contact with someone on the phone.

She looked into our case and also thought it was strange they requested for an AFP certificate, so she said I should just re-upload the same certificate we already uploaded earlier and she made a note in our application saying that we have been in contact over the phone and also wrote down the advice that she gave me.

Nothing yet since, but hopefully we'll hear something soon since it seems like suddenly a lot of visas are processed!

309 processing location

Hi all,

Thank you again for sharing all your good news. Congratulations to those who have heard, and "thumbs pressed" to those who are still waiting!

Could anybody please tell me how you know where your 309 visa is being processed?

If we applied within Germany, is it a given that Berlin is processing it? And is there any way of confirming this?

The Aus Embassy in Berlin won't answer the question, nor will anybody in Australia!

Thank you!
