Visa approved by Berlin office in 3 months...would have been less had we supplied medicals, police checks at the start and had we been out of Australia when they wanted to approve it!

Date of application: 21-11-2011 we sent the paper application to the Berlin office.

Nationality: My husband is Italian

Visa type: Partner Visa Subclass 100 - they put us up for the 100 subclass straight away.

Offshore/onshore: Offshore - Berlin

Medicals submitted (yes/no): at the start no. We were requested to get them the day we had CO contact and since we were leaving for a 1 month Australian holiday the CO said we could get them done there. Husband did medicals 23.01.12

Police check submitted (yes/no):Not at first. When CO requested them we got them and sent them within a week. 16.01.2012

Date CO assigned: 10-01-2012


Date visa granted: 22-Feb-2012

The CO email us to ask the exact date we were leaving Australia as the visa had been accepted and he needed us to be out of the country before finalising in. The application went much faster then expected and the CO was very nice in all email contact. We are migrating down under in November 2012 after the birth of our 2nd baby.

Best of luck to everyone.

My husband just received his Partner visa (Subclass 309). It was granted in exactly 4 months by the Seoul embassy, Korea.

We will be leaving for Oz mid-late april.

Nationality: me - Canadian, partner - dual citizen (Cdn/Aus)

Visa type: defacto 309

Offshore/onshore: offshore - Ottawa

Medicals submitted (yes/no): yes - with application

Police check submitted (yes/no): yes - with application

Date CO assigned: I was never contacted by a CO.

Date visa granted: February 29, 2012 - 1 day shy of 4 months
__________________

I was completely and utterly shocked when I recieved an email today confirming that my visa has been granted - I've been told time and time again it would be a minimum of 5 months. A very happy day!!

I never ever was contacted by a CO until I recieved a letter today. No need for an interview and did not request additional information ever.

Don't lose hope everyone! I can tell you, this email is the most pleasant surprise you'll ever get!

All the best, and thanks all for sharing your stories, its been a life line the past few months.
