Yeah, it does sound like a good sign I reckon. My case officer is MR. She seems quite good but as said I have tried not to hassle her at all.

I have not sent an emails to my case officer, so I was somewhat surprised to essentially just get an email telling me that I'm approaching the front of the queue.

Has anyone else received anything similar? There was no mention of interviews or anything, just telling me that I shouldn't travel to Australia BEFORE a decision is made - so I guess its not a bad sign.

My application date was on 28th December 2012
That sounds like good news Good for you!!
What visa did you apply for? Do you mind putting up a timeline?
I applied for a partner visa subclass 309 on december 20th and haven´t heard a thing.No response on the email I sent 1½month ago.
Best of luck to you

Edit: just saw your timeline in your next comment

Timeline should now be up and running - had to get 5 posts first. Squeezed in my partner-application in 2012, just before they increased the charge. But as I've lived with my partner for over 4 years I'm hoping to get on a 100 straight away rather than the 309. Not quite sure if there is any way to influence that or just discretion on the case officers behalf.

Yea I noticed the timeline after I sent my comment..lol
I don´t think the timelines automatically go on older comments by us.
You should be getting subclass 100 straight away.That will be awesome for you
My CO is KM so unfortunately it´s not the same....
Hope he´s active though.I really want to be with my partner.
Next thursday is his fiftieth birthday.Sucks not being there to celebrate him and spoil him rotten.
Fingers crossed you get your grant soon

@ Tomberli That's great news!
That's pretty much the email all the onshore (820) visa applicants get when they are told to leave the country for a decision to be made. If you have been living together for four years i'm almost certain you will go straight to the 100 if you get granted the visa. The requirement is three years or two years with a child and you have more than that.

My partner is also Swiss but we aren't applying until november this year
Good luck everyone!

You mean the e-mail the OFFSHORE (309) applicants (or 300) get when they are in Australia in a tourist visa and are told they need to leave the country, right? Onshore (820) applicants have to apply from onshore and be onshore when their visa is granted...

I actually didn't know that! i thought they had to leave because you have to be outside Australia when the visa was granted.
I guess that makes more sense! haha

Very good Tomberli!!
That is really good news, there is life in Berlin Embassy ;-)
They are finalising - as I was hoping - the autumn winter visas, at least those with no particular issues involved. So everyone in the late 2012, be positive!!

I am getting quite annoyed at this waiting. Why are we kept like this, like poor souls outside the gates, even couples with a long relationship or with children? Well probably they think Australia is heaven and we have to demonstrate that we are worth it??? A friend of mine in australia got a 475 visa in 6 days (for working in .. a shop!!) and I am still here waiting..
Sorry I woke up in the wrong mood. grrrr.....
