MB is a very silent CO... I applied 5 days before you and he's my CO.
The average time is 6 months for standard applications.

So just a little wait of a month.

thank you so much for your congratulations

I also wanted to thank you all (especially CollegeGirl) here in this forum for your help! I got great advice here and without you, I would not have been able to collect all the required documents etc - especially as my partner was sometimes a little bit too "laid-back" and relaxed during our process of collecting evidence (Australian guys! ) , that is I had to do most of the research on my own and organise stuff.
Thank you very much!!! It's a great forum and I appreciate all your help!

I promise, I won't let you alone I will have sooo many questions before I move to Australia and also when it comes to getting the permanent visa. Now, I am getting nervous about moving and my biggest fear is not to find a job I like (I am a teacher).

My CO informed me per email. I visited my partner in Australia for 6 weeks and before I flew there, I wrote my CO my flight details and mentioned, that we hoped to hear from her soon concerning a decision on our visa. She replied that I should send her an email once I have again departed Australia so that she could grant the visa - yay and just 1 day after my return to Germany, I got the visa :-)

Is this the same CO with Mc as part of his surname if it is he is very quick and he has a scottish surname which my dear is a good thing in Germany, he doesnt mess around and within 2 days he granted me my visa after waiting months from another CO

If MB are his initials... his surname wouldn't start with M, Louise. <3

I also have MB as my CO and he is not very talkative indeed. I have only heard once from him so far when he informed me that he is my CO and asked for the medicals. After that silence...

I've send an email to MR a week ago..Asked about my son's medicals aswell. They got the papers 2 months ago but Still no answer. Makes me wonder because she is always pretty quick to reply... who knows maybe we're lucky and the next email we'll get is a grant visa (can only hope haha)

Since had the impression that my silent CO (and DIAC) is reading this forum, I will write him a note here to celebrate my 5 months of wait. A note with the things I would like to tell him, if I could.
It's quite long, so sorry if i get boring.

Dear MB, my dear silent CO,
it's 5 long months that I am here in Italy, waiting for the visa that will open my new australian life with my lawfully wedded husband. Soon my italian work contract here will be over, I have said all my farewells. I have passed all the stages: happy to be back to my home country, depressed (why do I have to leave, can't he come over?), doubtful (have I done the right thing? I am happy here!), desperate (why am I waiting alone), hopeless (I miss him, I miss my australian life), now I am psychologically prepared to leave.
I am ready to fly away.
This is my past and I am tired of living in a life that is gone, Australia will be my new country. No country is perfect, I will have to accept all the contradictions and the things I don't like, but I am sure that a bright new life is waiting for me.
I have waited to marry my husband for over 3 decades (yes we met when we were very young, almost children). Now I can't believe that the cute and shy anglosaxon boy is my hubby. It's a very romantic and adventurous story, like in a movie, you know it, you read all the details on the relationship thing. And every line is very true. Tears, passion, rage and anger, separations, divorces, intercontinental love and finally happiness were the mixture that built our relationship.

When are you going to grant my visa?
Anyway, no matter when this partner visa will arrive.
I will travel to Australia to live with my husband in november.
So if you grant it before, it's better, if not I will go on a tourist visa and travel abroad every 3 months. Good excuse also for an extended holiday!

Anyway dear CO, I have to thank you. This long wait has helped me to fully accept this big leap forward and its consequences. I am not young anymore: life experience and the fear to make mistakes makes big decisions harder.
So I am waiting to hear from you soon.
Best Regards
