Date of application: 6 Feb 2012

Nationality: German, partner Australian citizen

Visa type: Partner Visa (De facto) 820 (but hoping for 801)

Offshore/onshore: Onshore in Brisbane (in person)

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes

Date CO assigned:

Date visa granted:

After many months of preparing evidence, I finally handed in my application this morning. The wait wasn't too long and I left almost 3k poorer and 2kg lighter. I have provided lots of evidence for the last 3 years to skip the temp visa and frontloaded with meds and police checks (although the person taking it said I should be aware that I'll have to do them again as the waiting period is now 12-18 months...) Let's see if they process my 'decision-ready' application quickly.

And the waiting game begins...

Good lunch GermanInBrissie.

I live in Munich with my Aussie partner and we just lodged our PMV last tuesday in Berlin together with all medicals and Police checks. Lets hope both our paperwork will be processed quicker than we are anticipating because of front end loaded medicals and police checks

Hi Emems1. Well, I actually just decided to get the medicals done on 31.01.2012 (the panel doctor said he will send them straight to berlin) and then sending my application to berlin the next day i.e 01.02.2012. I am just taking the chance, if they expire before my visa grant, it's ok,I guess I will have to do others. An amazing scenario would be that they check my stuff and see that I submitted everything and so hopefully I get my visa granted earlier than anticipated.

Date of application: 25th October 2011 (but due to issues with payment, official date 3 Nov 2011)

Nationality: My partner is German, I'm his Australian sponsor

Visa type: Partner Visa (De facto) 309/100 (think it got processed as 100!!)

Offshore/onshore: Offshore, Berlin

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes, 25th January 2012

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes, with application

Date CO assigned: Not sure exactly but he first made contact RE medicals in the middle of January after the initial assessment had been completed.

Date visa granted: TODAY, 7th February 2012!!! My partner emailed our CO yesterday about booking a flight in April to visit me for a few weeks and asked if he would need an eVisitor Visa and if this would affect our application. Today he got an email saying it had been approved. Very happy!!!! It doesn't mention anything about the temporary visa (309)...does this mean it's the permanent one? We have been together almost 5 years but had periods of separation in between.Good luck to the rest of you. Berlin seems a little less backed up at the moment
