I dont want to seem desperate to CO and i dont want the agency thinking im not happy with them ( although thats another story) and seeing as i dont know where my agent left off i dont want to screw things up either, BUT i have this strong temptation to send a pleasant ( no brown nosing) email to the CO asking WTH is going on with my application. Please guys any idea,s and advice would sure come in handy right now, as this email is waiting to be sent or not to be sent lol

Oh love it is such a hard question to answer. If I take it from a non emotional point of view I say wait...BUT I know it is SOOOO hard to wait. Ok so here is what you should do....I think Mark mentioned that just cos an agent is on leave doesnt mean they should stop managing your case so I would contact your agent office and ask whoever is managing his cases to follow up with the Berlin Office as you are aware of other people in the same month of lodgement getting their visa's in December.

Hope that helps xxx

I did actually ask the person whom supposdly took over and her reply was basically they are over worked and the time frame had being increased to 14 months i could have died she basically said over the phone that i have to sit and wait it out ( snotty cow). I know she is maybe telling the truth but i dont want to hear it in such a tone as if im bothering them, and that im no one special ect.
I will send her an email apparently she is back in Office on the 8th January, i dont really like the women to be honest she just made me feel as though i was a pain in the butt. Anyhow as long as she knows her job i cannot complain lol ( after i finished venting lol). Yes i will take your advice and sit and wait this one out i think.

Thank you as usuall you are always there for all of us.
Louise

I think you can go the tough line with her and just ask her to contact the CO and ask for an update....if she pushes back just say I would like you to ask for an update anyway. That is why you are paying them and you can be hard arse with her but not with the CO

Hey Louise
If I was you I will wait till your agent will come back or let the people from the office do a follow up on ur case. My advice is once u have an agent u don't contact ur CO personally as she does job for you. Ps Just my question to you is how would you mention MARA to ur agent or agency aren't they certified already?

Oh yes there certified, there a very large company, but it still doesnt give them the right to leave you sitting in the dark, they need to inform there client (me) of any movement forward, and really they should cc me on all comunication they have with the CO, but they dont i have to keep calling them for information. You can complain to MARA about an agent if you feel they are not doing there job correctly or providing the service to full you have paid for,, if you look at the list of things MARA are good for you will be surprised i certainly was lol.

Talking

I received an email today from my CO (MR) that my visa (309 subclass) has been granted!!! I already booked a ticket because we figured I could just go on a tourist visa but now I can go in the official way in two months!
Hope this will bring hope to all of you waiting for news

(applied 25 July to Berlin office, 8 January visa granted)
