Time limits, have to send application to germany.. says up to 10 months!

I hope someone can help..

My fiance is applying for a Prospective Marriage Visa.. he is from Iceland. On the immigration website, it says to send the application to Germany, as there is no embassy in Iceland. It says 5 months for low risk, 10 months for high risk. It doesn't look like Iceland is an ETA passport, so could be up to10 months?!!

I can't be apart from him for that long! We already have to spend 4 months apart as it is. Has anyone had experiences of applying for this visa, and have any idea what sort of waiting time it would be??

Any help would be appreciated..

Haven't bothered to look up where Iceland fits with risk but but regardless of whether it is to be 5, 10 or 25 months, you will keep the processing time to a minimum by you both thoroghly reading all the information on the immi site re eligibility and applying sections and I recommend people do dummie applications forst that they can then keep as a copy for future reference if need be for any phone dicussions etc.

Doing that and using the checklist will hopefully have the application with all information required and free of errors for any missing information or errors and 25 months could be more the reality.

Have you also looked at onshore application, ie. pretty sure all partner visas can be applied for from within Australia -check immi site and if so for the prospective marriage visa, is it possible the fiance could come out on a tourist visa and look at submitting while here?.

And if you decide to go that route, might be an idea if he gets copies of all supporting documents like birth certicicate certified before leaving but posted to you via registered mail just so immigration do not get all suspicious that he'll be looking for work while on a tourist visa.
