no partner visa accepted untill after 1st of july?

Hi everyone,
i am Italian and i have applied offshore (in Berlin) for my partner visa on the 27th of may 2010.
Reading this forum i found out that someone said that the immigration does not accept partner visa anymore untill the end of the commercial year. It is true?and also i didn t get any CO yet and the immigration in Berlin said that i need to allow 5 months for my visa...

I found this in the immi web site @:
.immi.gov.au/media/fact-sheets/21managing.htm

Family Stream
Partner category visas:

Partner (subclasses 309/100 and 820/801) visas cannot be capped.
Prospective Marriage (fiancÚ) (subclass 300) visas may be subject to capping.

Someone can clarify it pls?

I applied to Berlin embassy for my partner visa on 16th April and only got first contact from a CO this week. In the email it states that there are restrictions on numbers but they are still processing applications.

Quote:
Please see the following advice affecting the processing times of current applications for partner migration:

The Department is continuing to process migration cases.

The Department has a responsibility to ensure that numbers of visas granted are in accordance with the planning levels agreed to by Government. There are 60,300 places available in the Family Stream and 108,100 in the Skill Stream in the 2009/10 Program year.
Some cases may not be finalised as quickly as clients or the Department would want. We thank you for your patience and wish to assure you that every effort is being made to finalise each application as soon as it is possible to do so.
Even without the 1st July restriction if you only just applied then i would doubt it would go through before 1st July anyway based on the timelines i have had. I have also been told that visa should be processed within standard processing times ie 5 months for low risk countries.

Whether caledonia did or not, applicants need to realise that as a general rule, the more contacting of Immi people that goes on, the more they get distracted from what will be helping all applicants and that's keeping their mind on processing applications.

It is a common trait that something is always wanted earlier if possible.
In fact with family stream visas, many do get processed quicker than Service Standard times - http://www.immi.gov.au/about/charter...ndards/2.1.htm
Whilst there is no guarantee on a quicker processing time there is a guarantee that taking people away from their tasks will possibly increase times.

So the moral is, just put your patience cap on and do not meddle.

Only the week before my CO was assigned as i had some important updated information to send with regard to my application. Patience is a must for this whole process though i would say and you kinda just need to sit back and wait.
