Default Berlin - medical to landing papers backlog?

Dear net dwellers,

Has anybody got recent experience with the Visa Service in Berlin? According to the
Overseas Medical Service in Vienna, my file has been returned to Berlin more than 6
weeks ago. I have two questions:

Is it normal that you don't get the results of the medical sent to your home directly
from Vienna?

Has anybody got recent experience about the time it takes Berlin to come up with the
landing papers after a positive medical assessment has been received?

[Some background: something triggered the attention of the Medical Officer after the
results of the first examination were sent to him, enticing him to ask for additional
tests. The medical staff here refused to do these test, as they were intrusive, not
without risk, and without medical indication. On the phone with the medical officer
we came up with a compromise, and the result of this were sent to Vienna). After that
all went quiet, and the doctor in Vienna I had been in contact with, turned ill, so I
couldn't communicate with him anymore. Another contact in Vienna says they have no
backlogs anymore, and all files had been processed. I'm a bit apprehensive now, as
you may understand]

Default Re: Berlin - medical to landing papers backlog?

Results of medicals are never sent to the applicant - they must go to the visa office
address specified in medical forms.

If there is nothing wrong with medicals and background/security check has been
concluded then you should expect visa anywhere between 3 and 6 months from medicals.
