Hey guys,

I hope you all had a nice weekend
I was just wondering if any of you submitted stat dec's with your application to Berlin although it says on the website to wait until they tell you too? I'm asking because i read one person didn't, and then they questioned them why and asked them to send then (which i assume hold's up the process, not to mention that it look's less 'solid' (socially) with out them).

Also, if we want to write statement's for each of the categories to explain your situation (Nature of the household etc) would we need to have them certified? or is it just official documents like birth certificates etc? Did you just have official thing's translated? it seems pointless to translate a bill that says nothing about it's description...only the price and company name. Is it okay to just write on the bill 'electricity bill' for example?

Thanks

If you're just writing little cover notes for each of those categories those definitely don't need to be certified, rhirhi. Not sure about bill translation, though, or state decs in Berlin - hopefully someone else will come along and answer those.

I applied through Vienna, not Berlin and didn't translate our german bills or my German and Austrian police certificates. I didn't get any request for translation.
I marked my bills in different colours by type though (water, household items, rent, travel etc.) and provided an English Explanation what colour meant what

and instead of getting my birth certificate translated i got an international one (i think they are available in switzerland too) because it was much cheaper.

That's really good news!

I'm just curious why did they asked you again for the Police check? Is it a normal procedure?

Can I ask you when did you submit the medicals? I'm calcultating the average time in Berlin Embassy for 309 & 100 visas, average days and months from the day of visa application, and average days and months since day of medicals submitted. I will send you guys the results soon.

i ve heard that the police check is only valid for a year and mine was not brand new when we submitted the application and it needs to be valid when they grant the visa i guess.

we ve got the information that they received the medicals on 24/06. i dont know why its not showing in my signature..

So you applied 10 days before me, maybe it's also a matter of few weeks also for me... Uh.. We will write our silent CO next week asking some practical info about the visa, maybe he will give us also some hope.

Well lets hope October will be our month img68 and Pixiespirate!

Oct 14th will be 9 months for us and our CO said 6 to 9 months. Her last email was very postive, my feeling says it is very close!

Fingers crossed
