Wish you all my brothers and sisters a speedy grant.

Let's hope January ends on a high note so we can all be re-united with our loved ones, or for those who are already together, so you can finally move on with your lives and make plans for the future. God only knows how much of a freeze this waiting puts on your future plans.

Hope will make us wait one more day, everyday!

Amen to that Gerrywins. When was the last time you were in contact with your CO and what did they tell you at that time?

Last week and she said there is nothing new regarding my application.

Just wondering whether I should call that Berlin line that takes you directly to an operator who can check your application online and tell you where things are. It seems I might have to re-do medicals and police checks as police check expires end of this month and medicals expire first week of Feb which is when we lodged the application.

Do you know are they waiting on information to come back from your home country or ASIO or have they not told you anything? By the way who is your CO?

Last February 2012 just 3 weeks after we lodged it the CO called and told me that she had reviewed my application and found everything was perfect, but she said she had to send it to ASIO for obvious reasons. So the application was sent to ASIO almost 1 year ago.

My CO is J.K. By the way she is my third CO, I had two more before her.

Oh Im so sorry to hear of your long wait. I don't know JK but it is strange why you have so many CO's. DO you know why they change them so much? Did you ever have CK?

Visa granted today!!

Here is my timeline so far:

Visa Type: Partner Visa, low risk

Date of application: visa application was received by the embassy on 16 August 2012

Police check: with application

CO assigned: 28 August 2012, we have been asked to send another additional statement and I was also asked to do the Medical check. We send the statement on 29 August and the Medicals were done on 30 August. Also the CO returned heaps of documents we send with the application (total weight of application when sending it was 1.3 kg, all documents) back to us, as she checked them all and she does not need to keep all for the file. She kept all forms that we had to fill out and all statements.

Interview: not required so far

Visa granted: not yet, still waiting, we haven't heard anything since the CO asked for the additional statement and the medicals.

I must say I am quite shocked reading above about the processing time which might be currently between 7-9 months! I was hoping we can latest by the end of April. Can anybody say that they heard of /or experienced a shorter processing time? I hope for all of us that it won't take that long... Good luck to everybody!

Hello everyone! Here is an update on my timeline! I still can't believe it and actually i was surprised! My visa was granted today!!!!! We are so happy and excited! Now we can actually start planning properly! In total we waited 5 months and 5 days. In the first email we were told it might take 6-8 months!

This is great news for us and maybe it will give hope to other people as well!

For everybody who is still waiting, i hope you all will receive your visas very very soon! And also thank you for sharing all you experience and your support! This forum is such a great help! Of course i will stay online and i hope i also can help people with my comments in the future!
