Hi Berliners

We have applied for a de facto partner visa 3 weeks ago and just got an email of acknowledgement. Still no case officer! How long does it take to get one??
Can I fly to Australia to visit my partner also when I might not have a case officer by then?? I understand that I need to let someone know that I am flying there... but whom shall I tell when I don't have a case officer by then? Does this mean I won't be able to fly? And when shall I do the health check? Imagine I fly to australia and then jsut a week later get a case officer who wants me to do the health check. Do I have to fly home because of the health check and is there a specific date by when I have to do the health check?

Oh jez... the waiting already makes me crazy (

I will keep my CO up to date by sending emails when there are changes. Even if I don't get a reply.
The thing that worried me most is indeed, what if they didn't get the emails and the grant is nearly there?. But I wil keep in mind what u said.
Thanks for sharing this info.
Lets keep the faith!
Hey Frutsel,
I'm not sure why you are still waiting when they have granted visa's for people for the 26/09/12....I definitely don't think it should be another 9 weeks...or do you know something about why you are still waiting?
I know it is hard when it is your situation and not mine, but if I was you I would be incline to contact them and let them know vague details that you are aware of visa's being granted for people in Sept (don't tell them how you know) and ask why your visa for August has not been granted yet as you are before that.
Just my thought but I think it is ok to ask.

Oh Sunny...please don't say that...I am sure that you don't mean that, you are most likely just very feed up and angry with the whole thing. I know what a terrible strain it is on us all and the pressure of it is sometimes way too much to bear.

I know when your day comes that you will be so overjoyed that you will not be able to stop smiling my friend.

Please let me know what is going on with your visa? Have they told you what you are waiting on?

Please keep the hope in your heart and try to stay strong.

Hi there lehine,

To answer your question it is an unknown how long till you get a CO. I was given mine at the same time that my acknowledgement letter was sent but it will be in the next little while I am sure.

I have to tell you that they didn't say clearly to me "THIS IS YOUR CASE OFFICER". It was just the person who sent the email to me turned out to be my CO. This might be something that you can look at or ask?

Yes I think you can travel fine as long as you let them know. How you can do that is by contacting the generic email address for Berlin. If you look through the email and the acknowledgement email that they sent you I am sure that there is an email address in there that you can contact. If you can not find anything then let me know and I will look for you. Or I would just write to the email address that wrote to you in the first place with the acknowledgement letter.

I know before we even had the acknowledgement letter i wrote to that generic email and I was given a prompt reply. Funny thing is that the person that replied turned out to be my CO and she is everything but prompt now 8-(

By the way....what did they tell you the processing time is now?
