To save processing delays, it might be worthwhile preparing to get that.

I agree!
I've had to request police clearance checks multiple times (for multiple visas from multiple countries) and always declared "for immigration purposes"


You applied in January, correct?
I'm not sure if Thailand/Greece are low or high risk countries and how long it will take on average, but depending on when you're leaving for the army, I think it might be a bit further ahead before you get contacted by immigration!

Yeah just payed a company in Thailand (Have used them before) via western union, they said 3 weeks by email and 5 weeks for hardcopy to be sent to us. $300 Aud not cheap.

It will say for Australian Authorities only.

Hope we get 309 by September or else we need a Greek one as well. In September it will be 12months here.

Thanks

Hi risking!
When did you upload your AFP and when were you granted the visa?
I am just wondering whether it is a very last step of the application and how soon after you upload police checks they grant a visa...
I am a Polish citizen and was contacted by Berlin Embassy on 1/04/2019 asking for Police checks from both Poland and Germany for myself and Polish and Australian police checks for my fiance (we applied offshore for PMV 300 on 1/09/2018).
Thank you for your reply in advance!

My partners status changed from Sumitted to Recieved could that mean they had a look at it? My one still stays submitted (Sponsor).

Status update: 25-3-2019 request for more information, 4-4-2019 we uploaded all of the documents/answered all the questions. Any experience with processing time of additional requests for more information? We are pretty hopeful now we know someone is actually looking at our file!

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
Omg im feeling the same way!! =0 ive been waiting 16 months for my partners visa. Its so depressing
