Not at the last email. I asked him if he received my meds and also asked how long it would take for my visa.....as if bit him like a snake he answered with: in the first email I told you it could take up to 9 months.
I only send him 2 mails total. Not as if I am stalking him with messages. And nothing bout my meds. So I had something like...ok, I won't bother u anymore...lol

Oh it is so hard. We don't want to push too hard incase we put them offside but I think the "how long till I get my visa" question is a trigger for the defensive response from any CO because they publish the timeframes and the CO really has no control over it.

I would write again and ask about the meds. Just say, as per my other email, can you please advise if you received our medicals.

All the best xxx

Hi, new here :)

Has anyone got Jana as their CO? Do you know at what point do they ask to do the interview, is it usually later on after the application has been submitted? or just after they've gotten all the paperwork?

Good luck to everyone!

melandabdul 10-29-2012 12:18 PM

we have been asked for an interview right away. I have heard of other people being asked after the paperwork being in the system for a long time and this being at the end of the process and this being the last step before a decision was made.

Have you been asked for an interview yet?

No I don't have Jana sorry. How do you find her?

We haven't been asked for an interview yet, but I thought I would let our CO know that we're coming to Berlin for a long weekend in December, if she would like to conduct the interview while we're there in person. She's been good, just took me 4 emails to understand she actually was our CO as I first didn't get it :)

Thats a great idea!!! They have time slots they have to fit you into so I guess it will depend on if you are at the place in the process and if they have a spot for you at that time.

I know it can be so frustrating...seems easy from our end. Have they asked for more documents or are you just waiting?

I'm guessing the response will be negative, but we thought as we're anyway going in that direction that I'd rather let them know that we could pop in for an interview, instead of doing it through the phone. They haven't asked for anymore documents after the medical check had been done and the papers had been sent in, so now we're just waiting (and being prepared to wait for 7-9months)..
