How's everything going sunnysmile, any new update ?
Update is that there is no update but thanks for asking, KitKaat. Next Saturday is going to be 16 months of waiting but I have a feeling processing doesn't even started. Friends ask me what do I think when it will come and I tell them: "Never!" and almost the same answer hides in me about the question when will I go to Australia. Sorry but I don't feel welcomed to country that made me go through this hell and made me wait this long.

Hi, I was also asked for my medicals 3 months after lodging my application and I was granted my visa soon after that.

I hope the same will be true in your case.

Hi guys,

I was wondering what are the processing times for a partner visa application at the Vienna embassy, if anyone has applied through them?
I am a Australian citizen and my wife is from Bosnia, I'm currently in bosnia waiting for her visa to be granted, I've contacted the embassy many times and given random answers, they told me the standard waiting time is 14 months, I called today and they told me the standard waiting time is 12 months or can be granted earlier depending on how many slots are available, we have been currently waiting for 9 and a half months.

Any advice on the waiting times or people that have gone through the Vienna embassy would be appreciated.

Here are some of my details.

Visa type/Subclass: 309/100
Date of Application: 24th April 2014
CO Assigned: 30th April 2014
Medical Done: 15th October 2014
Embassy of Application: Vienna
Country of Applicant: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Hej, kako ste vi? Gdje zivite u BiH?

I just got an email with a notification saying there'd been a post in this topic, so thought I'd help out as much as I could.

It's been about a year since my wife (Bosnian) had her partner visa approved. We waited 18 months even though we were originally quoted "7-9 months". There was a pretty big backlog then but 18 months was huge for that time. I'm not sure if they've fixed up this area over the past 12 months. I hope they have for your sake.

One thing that helped us a lot was my wife (then my fiance) having a Tourist Visa approved so she could come back to Australia with me. (I was in Bosnia for 12 months. When I had to return, we'd already waited 8 months, and they granted her the Tourist visa when we applied at the last minute.) If you have any questions about applying for a tourist visa when in such a position, I'm more than happy to help.

Bear in mind however that she obviously won't be able to work while on the tourist visa for an indefinite period of time. For my wife that turned out to be almost another 12 months, which was a bit difficult to balance.

Bright side is that she got the visa, and is eligible for permanent residency in a few months.

Cheers from somewhere else in Bosnia right now, probably close to you.

Dobro , kako ste vi? trenutno smo u sanskom mostu.

Yeah my agent sent me an email about this saying that I should try to apply for a tourist visa, the only problem is that she is currently 5 months pregnant and we are expecting in june.

Wooow 18 months that's just crazy, I don't understand why it takes so long for a visa to be processed for bosnia, I mean I've looked at the waiting times for Egypt, india, even Cambodia the waiting times are shorter 10 months at max.

We paid for the visa and also in addition we went through a agent who is also a lawyer and it cost a lot of money thinking it would speed up the process, I thought because we are both really young it would help, I'm 25 and my wife is 19.

Thank you for your reply and support Nadam, I've been in bosnia so long and want to go back to Australia for work but can't leave my wife.
Let's hope it's within the 12 month period.
