300 Visa for Berlin office – checklist and step-by-step

Hi everybody,

Planning to apply for a 300 application ASAP. As I live in Norway I understand that this will most likely end up at the Berlin embassy.

I was hoping somebody experience, or have been through the process, could help me out:

- 1) Is there an easy checklist around for what I need to remember, especially for documents?

- 2) Can somebody share any good advice for the online application? It is kind of a black box at the moment. Any information I should try and prepare in advance (whist waiting on other documents)?

Finally:
- 3) An immigration agent told me to not bother with the 80-form – you give all relevant information on the online application regardless. Case workers never look at it and worst case they could just ask for it later. This form is principally intended for applicants applying in Australia… Anybody that can corroborate that?

- 4) Notice for celebrant: I have a letter from our celebrant with her letter head, with Celebrant “number”, stating “this is to advice that a Notice of Intended Marriage has been lodged…” then following up with details regarding the wedding. I was under the impression that I needed a formal NOMI form, signed by me and my fiancé and witnesses. Is the letter I describe sufficient for the application?


Thanks in advance for any comments and advice!

1. You might try to find copies of the paper forms.
2. See 1 and, it is not easy to prepare subsequently.
3. Completely wrong!
4. Should be ok.
It might pay you to undertake a consultation with one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum.

We downloaded the paper form, filled that in and used that info to enter on the online application.

We didn't do the form 80 for the PMV, but it was requested for the subsequent 820. It is worth getting it ready, while doing everything else.

We sent in the letter and a copy of the NOIM.

Hi Russel,

Thanks for your feedback!

Will try and google even more for checklists and forms…

I am pretty sure this guy is registered. Found him on IMMI-website, and he does applications…

Documents I am planning for now:

1: Identity papers (birth certificate and passport)
2: 2-3 888 forms
3: 80-form ?
4: Letter from celebrant
5: “Story of us” including timeline and time spent together + some pictures
6: Supporting evidence of joint activities and social life (Travel overview, some pictures with us two and with friends/family, plane and hotel recites…
8: Evidence on-going relationship (print from daily WhatsApp messages over two years)
9: Police certificate
10: (health check after submitting)

Anything I am missing or over-doing?

Hi JandE,

Thanks, so one for 80-form and one without…
Where did you find the paper form? I went on the Berlin Embassy site looking. I was just not looking hard enough?

And did you apply recently? Can you share anything about your timeline?

Could you share what documents you prepared? (my list in comments to wrussells post
