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
Awesome congratulations! Hope you guys have a great reunion and life together

I just submitted my medicals today. It was apparently requested by the embassy as soon as they processed our payment. Good to hear that Berlin is doing faster, thanks for the update miniature.moose.

Offshore/onshore: Offshore

Medicals submitted (yes/no): YES

Police check submitted (yes/no): YES!!

Date CO assigned: 03 JAN 2012

Date visa granted: Not Yet

I still have to submit my FBI check, which I have the clearance letter for, and the state check they requested. Then we begin the waiting game!
Just wanted to update, I submitted my final police clearances so now the application is COMPLETE! Now I just have to wait until the final papers are delivered and then call a few days later to make sure they are in my file and then the real nerve wracking waiting begins!

I still get very nervous because I have those bad checks from almost 10 years ago on my criminal record but hopefully, because my hubby and I have been married 7 years this March and we have our beautiful 3 year old (and are planning for our second) they will push my application through quickly!

Nationality: Greek citizen, Australian wife, living in Greece
Area migrating to: Melbourne
Visa type: Partner visa (spouse) 309/100
Offshore: Berlin office
Agent: No
Date of application: Confirmation received on 17.11.2011
Police check: Submitted with original application
Date CO assigned: 12.01.2012
Medicals & Form 886 requested: 12.01.2012
Form 886 submitted: 24.01.2012
Medicals submitted (via e-Health using HAP ID provided by Berlin office): 06.02.2012
Date visa granted: Pending

My case seems pretty simple: Six years of marriage with two kids (both already Australian citizens) should be a strong proof of a genuine marriage.

Hi emems1. Berlin office does provide a number. Its called HAP ID and this allows the panel doctor to access the e-Health system and submit your tests electronically. According to the DIAC website, medical tests are finalised within 2 working days (the CO just has to download them). You can avoid the paperwork, the passport fotos and the privat post charge. I really can't see any benefit by providing the tests in hard copies in advance.

well it's good for people like me who are getting their health check before returning home.

I know it saved a hell of a deal of money for me as the nearest doctor who could do the check back in France is a 4 to 5hours drive away.

Police check submitted

There was a delay of 2 months else could have gotten the VISA earlier, due to AoS submission from our side. Best of Luck.

Offshore: Canada - Ottawa office
Applied: August 24, 2011
Medicals: Submitted prior to our paper application
Police check: December 2, 2011
CO assigned: January 18, 2012 - received an e-mail saying the initial assessment of the application has been completed and medical results were being assessed by the health department. They requested copies of our children's Australian passports which we provided by e-mail the next day.
Visa Granted: January 23, 2012 - approval received by e-mail with the required entry date being before November 24th. Also happily it appears as if they granted the permanent visa right away. 8 year marriage, 2 kids, lots of evidence.

We are hoping to head back to Australia in April, just have to sell our house here and finalise everything.
