Then you'd need to factor in the cost and time to apply for a NZ visa and move there. Probably less expensive and quicker to wait from where you are.

Does anyone know what is happening to VISA applications for Europe (London and Berlin embassy's next month?)

- July 2014 applications have been granted this month.
- August 2014 applications are the first applications to be hit with the new 10-14month processing times. Which if they stick to that rule, makes the earliest they will process the applications is June and the latest being October!!!

So what are the embassy doing next month in May?

What happens to the August applications will dictate what happens to the rest of the applications going forward. There is a chance we could have 1 to 5 months of no VISA's being granted.

They're not just going to stop granting visas and take a month off because they quoted 10-14 months. However, if what CCMS said in another thread is true and London have reached their processing quota for the year (IF I understood Nick correctly in what he was saying... need to go back and check!) then it would mean no more grants between now and July 1.

This is the post I'm talking about. He does say "I believe" so it sounds like he's not certain, and it's not 100% clear if he's talking about London or Berlin or both. I'll check another forum I frequent to see if I can find any mention of it there. It's not something the embassies advertise or will typically tell applicants when they ask.. there's not technically supposed to be capping on Partner Visas, so they use "unofficial" quotas.

I wasn't referring to any specific processing centres. I believe it is not so much the processing, as the granting of visas that is affected once quotas are reached . But I'm not privy to the inner workings of the DIBP...

No mention of it on the other forum that I could find.

Ohhhhh, thanks for clarifying! Obviously I can't say for sure, but in my few years on this forum I don't think we've seen London ever hit its max and stop processing, at least that we've been aware of! The Philippines has hit it on more than one occasion and officially capped PMVs - and I think the US hit it last year as well. But I haven't heard of London hitting it before. But of course, things change from year to year, and they don't show all their cards anyway, as you've said.

Hello CollegeGirl,
Have you ever heard of Germany hitting its max and stop processing?

Thanks
