I am seriously appalled by how trivial they can be. Yup depressed is currently my middle name.

Gerrywins, I didn't understand does it mean 6+ months from ASIOs last question or 6 + 6 months?

They said that as soon they decide that they need more information from you and they request it, they push your application to the back of the line. As soon as you provide this information to them then you should start counting at least 6 months from that point for them to work and finalize your security check.

Damn, then I should not expect anything before May or even June. Just because they wanted to know what I did after school, 23 years ago!

Let's be positive and hope that the hand of God will touch those security people to work in fast forward and that any day now they could grant our way overdue visas. We cant loose hope.

I was just wondering, if Berlin sends the documents from your application back and when. Does anyone know, if they send the documents back before they email you if your visa is granted or not?

Hi Tobias83,

I got my documents back ( most of them ) in November 2012 and got my visa granted last week. So it doesn't say a thing about time of grant.
Good luck!

yup i got mine back two weeks after i had lodged the application, which was one year ago, still no visa. So I wouldn't take that as an indication that your visa is ready to be granted. It just means that they have assessed your relationship and all the documents you presented and they are satisfied.

I haven't been given back any papers...does that mean anything? I'm surprised you were given back your papers in 2 weeks!!!! That is crazy...I've never heard of them assessing a case in such a short period of time.

Hi Guys,

I never got any documents back.....and a lot of them were original certificates.

On a good note.....my Visa has been Granted. Now I need to make arrangements to leave Australia for 4 days.

I applied in August ..therefore it has been 6 months.

Best Valentines Gift Ever.

KEEP POSITIVE PEOPLE!
