The most important part of any step in this process is step back, deep breath and breeth.
Now you understand why it can be worth forking out the extra for an agent.
So long as you address it and keep them updated you "should" be fine

Good luck with the police check! Don't forget you can also upload evidence of intention to apply (like an acknowledgement of receipt of application) in the first instance. But of course I hope you can get it done fully on short notice!
Katlb82,

Just one more question. When I attach the acknowldgement document I don't click "All submitted button" yet?? since I am still waiting for the police records right?

If I was back in Australia I would have used an agent, but living on an Island 13hrs away from Athens theres no one here that does that. And agents in Athens will probably rip us off. You know the Greeks!!! lol

taking a deep breath thanks

I feel for you, the stress (and panic) can be overwhelming. Do you have someone else you could authorise on your behalf to access your account and upload the required documents if needed? You can set it up directly through your account (and later revoke it if you don't need it) under 'update details'.

Good luck, it will all work out I'm sure!

What I would do, and whether it's correct or not, I have no idea:
- Upload the acknowledgement of the police check request, and a brief statement of your circumstances, why you may not be able to make the 28 day requirement, combine in one document and provide that.
- Don't press the 'all submitted button'
- Email them and confirm all the above and request an extension on the 28 days.
- When everything is ready and upload, then press 'all submitted'

Like I said I'm totally guessing, but it seems like a logical path to show 1) you're serious about getting this organised asap 2) there are circumstances beyond your control and 3) you've made them as aware as you can, given they are not easy to communicate with directly.

And breathe

Thanks mate I will think about that, so far I have been told it will be finished by Tuesday from Greek Police, and one day to translate which is wednesday and upload!!. I got to army Thursday 8am.

If theres any delays I can explain like you said, but I cant mention army because they will need military documents and records which will complicate things. And I am scared.

I can make a email with a letter and attached to immi as you said and ask for an extension till at least 10th of June.

My status changed to Initial Assesment. I am guessing it could still be 5-6months after that?

I have 6 days to get one before I go army, oh my god.

Applied 26Jan, Case officer Maja Berlin Office 3rd of May 2019
Do not freak out.. does your fiance need it or you? Also make sure you communicate this to your case officer. They can grant you extentions if need be.
But im sure your fiance can assist you in getting the police checks. She could also upload it for you

I am also wondering if my Wifes Visa Tourist Stream 600 application 2 days ago got the ball rolling. I applied for arrival in Australia for 20th September. In the application I had to choose Berlin Office. Maybe same officer noticed whats going on.

She is right. You should upload the document or email showing that you are currently waiting but you have requested it. There used to be even a spot for it.
Then email case worker explaining your issues early.
But if you have someone that can help ask them to upload it. I upload stuff as my fiance all the time no issue.
At the end of the day its an administrative process.
