So whenever they grant you a tourist visa, be sure to advise your PMV CO that you're in OZ, and ask her/him if you can do your medical in OZ. If its ok for them, then they'll tell you where to go.

But for sure that wont be a problem. They'll allow you. )

Just in case you got your TV and did your medical here. Dont open the result. Hospital will mail it to you and you have to send it to your case officer sealed.

Hi Gerry, as far as I know everyone needs the medicals done, they are good for 12 months..so you can have them done in Oz as long as you have someone there who can mail them for you it should be fine..or if they get the medical report done before you leave you can pick up and take with you for delivery to the embassy in Germany...

Yeah I know thank you!!

Well actually I have found a lot of help on this website, and, I called immigration, when I was unsure. They are not giving advises, but they answer your questions, which was really helpful. They also said that a "decision ready" application could be processed more quickly, which means medicals and police checks and everything...
And we wrote the history of our relationship by hand, they actually said its recommended.
I have also read through the immigration website and the booklet about 1000 times.
The evidence of our relationship was the biggest part, I tried to put together as much information as possible, from every of the four broad categories I had documents (very helpful advises on this website).

I used the checklist of the immigration website and put it on the front of my application, no cover letter as there was enough space at the back of the forms.
We met almost three years ago but were together for 2 now. Have been living together for 1.5 years with a gap of 3 months due to work commitments.
And we applied by mail.
I got the confirmation letter on the 24th saying processing times are 9-12 months and on the 25th I received the grant letter.


I really thought we would have to wait 12 months. This is crazy.

I wish good luck to everyone!

So happy it all went so fast! Was expecting 4-5 months! Our case wasn't the easiest either, we're both currently traveling with no jobs and over the course of the past three years we've had to spend a lot of time apart... And I'm only 22 while he is 30. We're just so relieved it all worked out! xx Happy Australia Day you all!!

It depends on many factors..how busy they are, if you have any medical conditions that require further information etc..if it is straightforward should only take around 10 days
