Marjan, if I was you, I would contact the CO at 10 months (after you medical date) in a concise email asking if you will need to redo your medical, and to inquiry about the limit date of entry in case your visa get granted soon.
My sons medicals were refferd and needed more medical information. Only just got a clearance for his medicals 1.5 week ago. Co did say in that same email she would contact us again within 2 weeks about our application. So that would be this week. I hope that this saying we're getting an answer very soon.
But what if we still have to wait longer and need to do medicals all over again will his medicals get refferd again?? Police check is vaild till dec 19th 2013. We applied for the PMV on jan 14th 2013.

We were thinking mid-late December would be a good time to apply as we assume they would ask for the Medicals at the start of February 2013 which would be perfect. I hope you this isn't confusing you! Haha.

Also, for anyone else like myself that was wondering about the stat dec's when applying to Berlin Embassy, I phoned this morning and she said please do NOT include stat decs when you apply unless they are essential in your application (e.g. You lived with your family and need them to state so). I was told if it were necessary they will ask for the stat decs later in the process and it will not hold up the time frame of your visa being granted.
I really don't understand this. Berlin seems to be the ONLY embassy that thinks stat decs are optional... it's bizarre! I mean... lucky for you folks! The only downside to that is that they probably give you a 28-day time frame to get them back to them once requested, which can be difficult when you're organizing stat decs from other people.

Marjan, I wouldn't worry. As Sunnysmile said, the CO can extend their validity for a certain period of time, and if your son has only just gone through the referral process, it would make no sense for them to make him do that all over again. I have never heard of them doing that in similar cases, so I think you can relax.

When did you do his medical originally? Just wondering how long it took them to clear once they were referred. Referrals were taking 3-4 months, but seem to be moving much more quickly these days.

Good to know that it can be extened.. lil less worry.

We did our medicals on feb 21st this year. In april we recieved a clearance for me and my daughter. But my son his medicals were referred (ADHD and PDD-Nos and goes to a special school). In june i got an email where i got asked to send reports from school and his specialist. I've send these on the 5th of july and on sept 18th i finally recieved his clearance. So from the date he did his medicals till the clearance took close to 7 months.

And about the stat decs.. i did send them with the application anyway.

I know! It was very stressful because i have read it should be close to 4 months. I kinda gave up and figured he wouldnt get a clearance. I have read so many stories about cases with the same "disorders" which didnt get approved. So it came as a big suprise and a happy dance on skype with my partner!

I'm hoping that in my case since we provided them up front with all the documentation from specialists that they could possibly want, and it's been nearly four months without us hearing anything from them, that we'll know soon, either way, whether they're accepting or rejecting me. Who knows, though. I hope we don't have three more months wait ahead of us.
