Hi Kamal,Hi HassanWhat council area did your ceremony?
My experience is similar to yours.
Eligibility date 20 Oct 2019
Application submitted on 21 Oct 2019
Test / interview letter 30 Oct / very quick!!!😀
Test date 31 Oct 2019/ rescheduled from 2 Dec as I will heading overseas on that day.
I asked the officer what to expect, she mentioned police check that she will do it online and then approval letter will be sent.
I told her about my travel plans on 2nd of Dec, she reassured me it will take less than a month. Now 2 weeks passed.
Do you advise me to travel for a month if I don't get my approval ?
So far you had a wonderful ride with the Home Affairs. From lodgement to test took only 10 days. That is the quickest I have seen from lodge to test.
I did my test on 22nd October 2019. The officer assured me that approval won't take long as ONLY Australian police clearance was the remaining task which the officer promised to do online.
Almost 4 weeks now and no update yet.
This depends on you. I would not have travel considering all this delay in citizenship. I was also planning to go overseas but I àbandoned it altogether as this will buy them more time to drag my application longer. "Once and for all" is my view.
If you have more pressing issue, then let them know and go. Otherwise wait for the approval.
For the ceremony contact your council after the approval and ask them any possible arrangement.
