Still waiting. Called the embassy when i didnt get a respons on an email i sent. My Co told me that the processing times are now 7-9 months, and not 3-5 as adiviced on immis website. Its about to be updated to 7-9 months. He said I just have to patient and probably my application will be finalized in January.
Thanks all. I to have just been told it is now 7-9 months. Kangaro, as you are high risk country you are probably best match to my process as my fiance is from Ghana. Have you had any requests for information between CO being assigned and the request for interview? Was there any issues with your application that might have causes it to take this long? Any insight?
Here is my timeline:
Visa Type: Partner Temporary, Low Risk
Date of lodgement: 30.5.2012
CO assigned: Not sure, because did not received the mail in the first case, but only after doing an online inquiry. Got the eMail resend in beginning of July.
Police Check: With application
Phone interview: 27.7.2012
Further doc's requested: 27.7.2012
Further doc's submitted: 18.8.2012
Date Visa granted: Still waiting...
BTW: I have also been told by my CO, that current processing time is at least 7-9 months
Hey everybody! First of all I would like to say that I think it is a great idea to share the experience regarding the processing time in Berlin in one spot! Thank you for that, melandabdul!
Here is my timeline so far:
Visa Type: Partner Visa, low risk
Date of application: visa application was received by the embassy on 16 August 2012
Police check: with application
CO assigned: 28 August 2012, we have been asked to send another additional statement and I was also asked to do the Medical check. We send the statement on 29 August and the Medicals were done on 30 August. Also the CO returned heaps of documents we send with the application (total weight of application when sending it was 1.3 kg, all documents) back to us, as she checked them all and she does not need to keep all for the file. She kept all forms that we had to fill out and all statements.
Interview: not required so far
Visa granted: not yet, still waiting, we haven't heard anything since the CO asked for the additional statement and the medicals.
I must say I am quite shocked reading above about the processing time which might be currently between 7-9 months! I was hoping we can move to Australia latest by the end of April. Can anybody say that they heard of /or experienced a shorter processing time? I hope for all of us that it won't take that long... Good luck to everybody!
Hi Skipperydoo....yes of course there are always exceptions but they are just that...exceptions. Please, for your sake, don't set your heart on that though as it is a hard thing waiting and the time goes so much faster I think if we just accept that it will take that long.
I hope that makes sense and didn't rain on your parade too much 8-)
