The procedure is... silence (!). I sent a couple of e-mails to my CO asking kindly to inform us which were the next steps and the documents to prepare, but never got any reply. I assume it's their policy. Well I prefer the this "australian way", much better than the "italian way", with a public officer asking you a bribe to get your file processed quicker. Of course it's not always like that, but...

The way I remember, you and I have the same CO who is not very talkative, or so I've heard...Well if the stadard procedure is silence then I guess we just have to wait and see what happens...

Going to fly out from Copenhagen,then Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi to finally arrive in Sydney on tuesday night.
Can´t wait to be in the arms of my partner again!!!!
He´s superexcited and happy I made it home till his fiftieth birthday
3 hours drive home and next morning off to QLD to celebrate him with his family
Can´t wait to see my mother in law aswell,she´s been so supportive to us
I´ll be checking in here later.
Wish you all the to get your visas granted asap,you deserve it!!
Best of luck!! Hugs and support to all of yous
xoxoxo,Anette

PS Anyone know if there´s a dress code for women in Abu Dhabi?
I won´t be leaving the airport but have a long stop there..Don´t want to break their rules and get into trouble..lol
Hello Berliners! Thought I´d say hello after being in Oz a week
The trip went very well! Emirates gave me food vouchers when I arrived in Abu Dhabi.
I asked them what they suggested would be the smartest thing to do for 15 hours until my Sydney-flight was leaving. Very good of them!
There was no dress code at the airport.Everyone was very friendly.
I could sit or halfway lay down for naps during those 15 hours without being too worried about my luggage.
I even spotted someone sleeping under a blanket at Burger King.

I must say to anyone in the future having KM in Berlin office as their CO,there was no reason to be scared of contacting him.
He was formal but very friendly over the phone when he called to grant my visa.Best phone call I ever got!

Being reunited with my partner and his family feels awesome!!
Bear in mind that the waiting can take its toll on your relationship.
If possible,try to visit each other during your wait if you can´t be together all of the wait.
We didn´t see each other for nearly 8 months and I believe my family situation and living arrangement with staying in an unhealthy environment has affected me aswell as our relationship.
I really hope things will get back to normal though.It has to!
Just keep in mind that this long wait can either make or break your relationship.I have a feeling this is the test IMMI puts us through on purpose..
Hope to see some grants from Berlin very soon!! Best of luck to all of you!!

Has anyone ever been denied a visa without an Internview? Or in other words, should I put the Champagne in the fridge?[/QUOTE]

Join us in waiting and you can pop that champagne here. We might as well drink together as we wait in solidarity . Cheers

Hello AJ!! Great to hear from you. Don't worry everything will go well.
You know, what you said about the waiting game that affects the relationship it's very true. I can feel it and it worries me, expecially because we just started our life together, we had little time to settle and consider us as a married couple (after many years - nearly 30 - of friendship) and we had to be separated. I regret the fact that we applied offshore. It would have been much better to wait together. Anyway, I hope by december to be in Australia!

That is true that the long waiting can make people grow apart a little but I am sure its only temporary and everything will be back to normal soon after the reunion Be stronger than any IMMI in the world!
