My fiancÚ is Palestinian, living in Europe for the last 20 or more years, of which 17 in Germany, where he is a permanent resident. I would think it is pretty easy for the ASIO to get information about him there, as he lived his adult life there. We know each other since 1989! We were together for 3 years back then in an Eastern European country, but again in the post communist confusion and immigration bureaucracy and our young age we were not strong enough to fight the system and our families racism. He is the only man I ever loved, and the same for him. We are in this long distance relationship for the last over 3 years, since we found each other again. I can not go to live with him in Germany because I have 2 children here in Australia, and he is not allowed to come here because he can not satisfy the genuine visitor requirements, because apart from his job, there is nothing in Germany to return too. So, there is no other option for us, only the PMV . Perhaps being Palestinian is even worse than being from an African country. This is so sad to have our life just pass by, being in our mid forties we are more acutely aware that life is not endless. I understand that he needs to be checked before he is allowed to come here, but not to have a response over 18 month it is ridiculous . He poses no threat to the Australian society I am absolutely convinced about this, I know his views about everything really , after 6 years of daily communication with him. Well, this is our story.

Really sad to hear this Krissaid. I am keeping you in my prayers and hope for a favorable response when you meet your CO soon. It is absolutely ridiculous how much they make people suffer.We will overcome, be strong.

Dearest Krissaid...maybe there are worse things than being African indeed!!!! How terrible that people are still judged so poorly for where they come from or what the colour of their skin is.

My my....20 years in Europe I would have thought enough of a lifetime to show and prove over and over your man's stability and stop mucking around. I feel so bad for your situation my love....all we can do is try and stay strong and recall the reason we started this terrible process in the first place.

Thank you Mel for your support , greatly appreciated . Where is your love living? I really hope for a timely visa processing for you! We will all stay strong and love and truth should win at the end. Even if it hard, we have to believe in the democratic institutions of this country.

Thanks Krissaid. My love is living in Greece but he is a wonderful man from Ghana so his fate is yet to be determined. I pray that God will intervene and make our process smooth and speedy 8-)

Hey Berliners...it has been very quiet with not a lot of news of updates or visa's being granted.

Just thought that I would check in to see if there was any news in your world that you want to share?

Hope you are all keeping strong.

Mel
