Enjoy ! Xoxo
Helloooo Hun so glad to see your back i missed you lol. Did you get the pm i sent you i had put the new email address for the new CO dealing with most of K,s applications, fingers crossed yours is amongst them. I had contacted my agency after a good few pushes from the guys on here, i was a little strong with them ( agency) and i got a response to say that a new CO had taken the case and that he would give me an answer by the 27th January, this was on the 14th or the 15th anyhow the day after i got another email from the agency to say that the new CO had approved my visa, so after 1 or 2 days the CO had basically granted the PMV for me. Went to book the flights ( one way) emirates checked on the computer and said that my PMV was in order so a one way flight was sufficient, they had to check that i was allowed in on a one way ticket ( something new i didn't know lol ) Anyhow if you didn't get the pm i will resend you the email of the new CO no harm in asking him if your file has being transfered over.

Hi all, we are waiting for PMV since 02/09/2011. Close to 17 months! Police checks (updated) , medicals ( running out soon ) submitted. My fiancée had his interview , I did not require one, as the CO wrote email saying she is satisfied that our relationship is genuine. I think we are waiting for national security check. My fiancée is Palestinian refugee, with permanent residency in Germany , where he has been living in the past 17 years. Terrible process and endless waiting. Heartbreaking.

Oh boy....I am so sorry to hear this....esp since it is not too different from my story. Who is your CO? Have you asked what you are waiting on?

We had one CO until June 2012, who did the interview ,JV, who was actually reasonable and answered my occasional emails. We were handed over to CK, who very rarely responds, even to my last email noticing that my fiancée medicals are about to expire and to instruct us what to do. The original medicals were requested by the previous CO. CK just said in a pro forma email that we are waiting for the security check. No time frame given, nothing. This is killing me emotionally. This is why I decided to join in, because only you good people understand what is it like to just wait and wait and wait... I fully agree that everybody should be checked before accepted to come in this country, but 17 months? I think this is over the top!

Yes, got your PM.
Hopefully I got that new CO as well. I don't think so cause I haven't received any mail from them regarding another CO. So I think am still stuck with our big friend.
I shall send him an email you said Hi...lol
I flew on a one way ticket to aus on my tourist visa. Not a problem at all. It saves u heaps of money!
All I need to do is if mine is granted to search for a cheap ass flight to NZ or somewhere else outside aus. ( more $$$$ ) :-(
Where r u going in aus? Maybe nearby. I am in QLD ( Walkerston) Then we can talk about KM with a cuppa...:-)

I also have CK and she is hard to get a reply from but I thought she was ok but I haven't had any other CO to compare to. I see now that she is now helpful. Why not just give us information and keep us informed and reply to emails. We will suffer together. Please keep me posted on your situation.

Ok all of you lovely people who are waiting on Berlin to get their visa mojo in gear...it is almost the end of the month so this means we are going to see a new lot of visas handed out soon!!!!
My prediction is August application from what we have seen in the last month and who knows, maybe they will give out some in Sept as well?
The start of a new month is always exciting to me as I know it is the beginning of visa allocations again and new life for some of us and renewed hope for many more of us.
Just think....one month closer to our goal, our loved ones, our visa!!!
Can't wait to hear your good news...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do share if you get news or a visa and you are through the Berlin office...it really is a life line for so many of us...just to know that things are moving forward makes a huge difference.
xxx

Dear melandabdul and kangaro, thank you for your support. It looks that we are in the same boat of very long wait, but hope that our suffering will end soon, it can not go forever.

Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum altho i have been reading this thread from the beginning till the last comment.

I'm Marjan 29 yr old a mum of 2 kids and engaged to Phil.
Phil and i met 4 years ago and now 4 years later after flying back and forth between sydney, Australia and the netherlands. We just logged our prospective marriage visa om Jan 14th of this year.

i've had two calls from Anke gerick? since. Asking what subclass the form were for because she wasnt sure and the second time regarding to the reciept we got in berlin wasnt right It said partner visa instead of the PM visa if i could send it back so they can change it? But No emails yet..She said that (how you guys say it) CK would be our CO.

Also when handing in the forms in berlin they told us the processing time is 10 to 12 months at the moment?

Our wedding date is on 27th december this year and i truly hope The kids and i will be in Sydney before then.

I hope to read alot on this forum and i already got alot of information which is really helpfull. Most of all i'm on this forum to get some support in this waiting game...

Marjan
