I'm so stressed at the moment and so scared that this will stand in the way of getting a visa. He is a normal 10 yr old boy with adhd and minor learning difficulties.
Don't worry. They probably need to ask you that. It means that they are working on your case. Everything will be fine and you'll soon receive your visas.

Marjan,try not to stress yourself too much.
Iīm sure it will be fine! Lots of children (and adults) are diagnosed with ADHD these days.It shouldnīt be considered a big deal.
Iīm pretty sure itīs basically procedure to get written reports with any kind of diagnose.
I had to get a statement from the specialist who performed surgery on my lower back.I was born with spondylolistes.
I brought it with me to the medical exam.After that no questions asked what so ever.
So just relax and take it easy,Iīm sure everything will be ok! xoxoxo

Hi everyone, I need your help to understand this. Today I received back from berlin embassy a part of my evidence relationship (print out of mailbox, wedding invitations and cards, wedding expenses, lease, boarding pass of joint trips), our passport photos and my cover letter plus the index of various sections. They kept very few things, probably the essential ones.
But believe me, for a moment I thought they gave us back all that because they rejected my visa!!

I have heard from other people that its a standard procedure, they normally return stuff they don't need anymore. And I think it means that your CO has everything he needs to be able to grant your visa

Sounds like theyīre done assessing your case.
Hopefully next time you hear from them will be when your visa is ready to be finalized

Hi Berlin folks! Img68 said in another thread that the Berlin office's website explicitly states that they don't want you to submit Form 888s to them until they ask for them. Just curious - was that what the rest of you experienced too? I'm curious, because this is the first I've heard of having to wait to submit a Form 888 in any country.

Hi CG! Definitely sounds like a mix up to me. Must mean form 80,and thatīs how I remember it.
I still sent in mine but Iīve been a tad bit worried about the fact that I didnīt remember the dates of when and where I worked after school etc.
They ask for year and month.I just played it by memory but if he had checked Iīm sure more than 50% of it wouldīve been inaccurate.
Still got my visa though so I donīt think people need to stress too much over things.Depending on what kind of jobs they had,high risk or low risk.
But going back to form 80 and 888,Iīm sure they mean form 80 is not to be sent in until required from the CO.
Delaying the 888īs would mean delaying the assessment of applications and makes no sense to me

It says on the Embassy's home page about Form 888: "Please do not provide Statutory Declarations to our office unless asked to do so by your case officer after lodgement of your application. "

We did not provide any and I was not asked for it so far, only for the Medicals which I am trying to arrange now...But again I lodged my application not so long ago, so maybe they will ask for it later...

I have to say i didn't see that 'important notice' but Lilia is right.
It's not on the home page but on the "relationship evidence -De Facto partners" page.
it reads:

( ) Form 888 - Statutory Declarations
Please do not provide Statutory Declarations to our office unless
asked to do so by your case officer after lodgement of your application.


http://www.germany.embassy.gov.au/be...%5fen.html

Shocked! it hardly seems like a complete application without any stat decs.... maybe this is one of the areas on the website that needs to be updated. Last time when i called to ask about "decision ready" applications she said not to and that it was something on the IMMI website that needs to be changed so maybe this is the same...

I think i'll be calling before we submit to be sure..

Actually it says the same on the "RELATIONSHIP EVIDENCE - MARRIED PARTNERS (Subclass 309/100)"....
