Well, few weeks ago i was complaining about my very silent CO, who never answered to my polite enquire about medicals.
Today, after more than a month, I had a sign of life and got a standard answer, everything ok, He will contact me if/when he needs other info. my application is processing. It will take 6-9 months.
Good. Bravo. That's all I wanted: an answer! I hope next mail will be about the visa (although I still haven't sent the 888 stat decl, I wonder when he will ask about it)

Maybe they read this forum

Yes they take some time to answer emails.. very frustrating!
Glad you finally got an answer

Just over the 6 month mark here.. Waiting for australia to hopefully clear the medicals and then? I have no idea. Not sure if that is the only thing keeping us from getting a grant or not.

Got something to look forward to tho My partner will be here next week for a short 11 day holiday! cant wait

He might not even ask for the 888 at all. I have read somewhere that its a must to submit when you apply onshore, but offshore not always necessary

Yes it's on the Berlin embassy website that you should not submit form 888's unless/until requested

That is so bizarre to me. DIAC requires them for a valid 820/309 application (but not for PMVs). I don't get how Berlin can be the exception to the rule.

Yes it is odd! I didn't believe it when I first saw it on the forum and went looking myself. I think it's more than likely they will ask for them anyway.

I am not really sure but I think the exception could be based on the fact that when you apply onshore its most likely that you have some aussie family/friends to sign the stat. declaration as it must be signed by AUS citizens. But when you apply offshore maybe its not always you have the aussie family/friends to sign it, like for example on our case. We are a Danish family moving to AUS, it just happened that my husband has the AUS citizenship because he was born in AUS when his Danish parents lived there for some time. Apart from that no any connection to AUS, no any aussie family/friends. I have seen somewhere that the stat. dec. 888 could also be signed by non aussie citizens but in reality it has no legal power that way. So maybe thats the reason why they don't always ask for it offshore. But as I said I am not sure, just my guess.

Good I do hope he won't ask for the declarations.
And that I will get this visa in november. I am tired of being married and live alone. Besides most people now think that I made up everything or that my husband left me few weeks after the wedding!! ("where is the husband??? Why is she here alone?")
They can't understand that australian immigration procedures are so strict.

VISA GRANTED after 17 months 21 days

Hi my lovely Berliners. My fiance arrived in Munich last week to attend my graduation. A few days later we left for our holiday in Croatia. On our first morning (which was yesterday 30.07.2013) here while seated at a beach my CO JK called:

" Gerrywins are you sitting down?" I said Yes with a huuuge smile. " I am happy to tell you that your visa has been granted and that you can travel back to Australia with your fiance."

I am over the moon, now we can totally enjoy our two week holiday here in Croatia. We've already booked our flights for the 12 August 2013.

I thank you all for all your encouraging messages. The journey still continues and I will still be in the forum. Gotta go back to enjoying this wonderful news at a nice beach somewhere. :-)
