Well there is me and you and there is Vickiminoli who I dont think is on here much and they applied in Oct also...on Oct 11. This is all I know of from people who have entered their details into the timeline table but I am sure there are others who are reading and not writing much who are in those months....maybe they can share with us so we can support each other and celebrate together when the visa comes.

expected processing time increase

hi all,
the expected processing times are back up to 6-9 months now on the embassy website.. although the german version still says 5-7

i'm still hoping for 5 months.. that would be great ;-)

Well, there goes my hope and prayer to get my visa granted in March. My case officer JK is on leave until 28th of March. By that time I will have been waiting 14 months almost. What a frigging joke

It seems that the Germany embassy haven't bothered to update their site but the acknowledgment letter they are sending out I am sure if saying 6-9 months now.

But good news is that for low risk countries where there is no issue we are seeing from people that share with us on this thread that it is about the 5 month mark.

Of course this is only possible for us to know if people are letting us know via this thread that they are getting a visa as I know a lot of people sit back and read but don't share and there is always the chance that this time frame can explode if staffing levels change or policies change etc.

Hang in there xxx

Hi Berliners. So far it's been a quiet month with not much reported on this thread in terms of visa approvals. But I have a couple questions for you all.

1. Has anyone received updates this months from their CO and what were they? For example...they let you know that your visa was ready to be approved next month or something.

2. For anyone who has CK as a CO...does she give you any indication of what you are waiting on in order for the visa to be approved? For example, do you know that your form 80 is at ASIO or that they are waiting on clarification from you home country on verify certain documents or is it just a blank statement of something "your application is still actively being processed"

Thanks all.

Hi Mel, I was told many months ago, I think in August last year that we are waiting for security check. My fiancée filled in Form 80 in February 2012, but CK did not tell me when it was forwarded to ASIO. She is silent. We sent in a new police check in December 2012, as the other one expired, without her prompting. I sent her an email in January this year to ask if she wants the medicals redone, as this expired too, but she did not bother to answer. We are waiting 18 months and 1 week. I am beyond stressed and depressed, I am just trying to keep my hope that one day the email will come with the good news. By the way CK is our second CO, the other one did the interview and sent me an email saying that she is more then satisfied that our relationship is genuine. This was in June 2012.

So sad to hear your story Krissaid. My story is basically the same except that I have just hit my 13 month mark. It is appalling. I complained to IGIS and they told me to wait till August this year when I will be at 18 months to complain to them again. I wrote to Berlin last week and they told me that they understand how frustrated I am but I have to understand that security checks take one year. I dont even know how to react anymore, this is beyond BS.

Hi Krissaid,

What a shame that you have ended up changing CO's. It is not right that you get no response to emails and it is this kind of behaviour that I did not like so I would keep writing and asking, did you get our email and then call if I got no reply. In the end she did it with pretty much most communication and after a few times of my following up a couple emails in the same manner I was "told off" by the supervisor and asked not to write emails to CK. It is terrible that we are paying for a service and we can't even get that little.

So I am assuming that you got told your form 80 was sent to ASIO by the other CO and not CK?

I think I will eventually complain if I don't get reasonable answers from her. For now I am waiting patiently to see what happens this month and next as no one has mentioned to us anything about having to be security checked and it taking 1 year OR bout it taking longer for high risk....SO I am running on the assumption that when other Oct applicants get their visa's we will to....at this point if we don't then I am going to start asking direct questions and if I don't get direct answers I will lodge a complaint I think.
