Quick update: my husband had his citizenship test in Brisbane this morning and passed. He didn’t receive an email or any communication afterwards but his immi account now shows “Approved”! Just have to wait for an invitation for a ceremony now 🙂

I've been following this blog and the multiple threads that applies to me since early 2015, so thank you all very much for sharing your experience so far.

Finally, after having my interview and test postponed earlier this year (it was originally scheduled for March 2020), I've received an email from the DHA over the weekend and my test and interview (Sydney CBD Office) is now rescheduled for the 27th of November.

We're all slowly getting there, don't give up, it will come when you least expect :)
Sorry, my previous message was to you :)

Hi there. Lodged my application in Sydney in November 2019 and im still waiting for my test schedule.

Annoyingly im also offshore due to the border restrictions.

Checking if :
- Anyone has been waiting for more than a year now?
- Anyone has stories to share on being offshore while waiting for test schedule?

Thank you so much in advance.

Hi guys

I got approved on 7 October. My friends who got approved on 20 October have been invited to the 26 January ceremony but I haven’t received the invitation.
I’m in Brisbane. Anyone else, has a similar situation or is it normal? Why haven’t they invited me? I wrote them an email but no response

Hi Ali, I got the approval on 12 Oct but haven't received an invitation yet.
Does your friend is also located in the Brisbane City Council area? and when he/she was invited?
Do you know anyone else from Oct approval who is invited to the 26 Jan ceremony?

Anyone from Brisbane please share your timeline if you have been invited for the 26 Jan ceremony.

Cheers

Do you know when did they applied for citizenship? I know a couple of guys who got approved in Oct amongst one received invite for 26/Jan that applied in 2019 and the other one applied Feb 2020 hasn't received an invite.

I myself got approved in Nov, waiting for ceremony

I'm not sure when they applied but I applied last February.
Hopefully we will get invited to the next one. Do you have any idea when the next occasion is that they normally hold the ceremony?

Hi everyone. I have a question. I am applying online and for some reason the application form pages jumped from 24 to 32. I was just wondering whether this has happened to anyone?

I have reviewed my application, answered all the questions and I just don't see why it skips the pages. Please anyone help..

Sorry, I only just saw your reply! He read the booklet but mostly the "Australian Citizenship Prep" app on iPhone by Spurry Inc. and paid the subscription. There are quite a few different apps available and most have a free trial with a handful of questions. We downloaded a few and then picked this as a favourite.

My husband who passed his test and was approved in November received an email from the Toowoomba Regional Council on 7/1 inviting him to the citizenship ceremony on 26/1 :) So glad we can see the finish line and it's soon! Good luck to all that are still waiting.
