Not me, but for my wife.

Citizenship Eligibility: Birth
Citizenship Applied: 05/09/2019
Test Location Requested: Not Required
Test Date: Not Required
Ceremony Location: Not Required
Ceremony Date: Not Required

I decided to throw this in here because her pathway is rarely used: She was born to a former Australian Citizen and meets all the requirements for that pathway. There is no residency requirement, and no test / ceremony. Technically, she's been eligible since birth. Maybe this will help the one other person on earth applying through this channel :D

Hi guys,

I need your help as I am trying to put through my citizenship application but I am stuck with some questions such as:

1.Does this applicant have a national identity card? - What do they mean by this? What is considered a national identity card? Do they need Australian documents or documents from my country of citizenship?

2. Has this applicant ever held citizenship of any country? Date citizenship started - Yes, I am a citizen of another country by birth, what do I put as the date citizenship stated? Do I put the date I was born?

3. Other identity documents - Does this applicant have other identity documents? - What's the difference between this and the national identity cards they ask for in my first question?

4. Details of parents - Does this parent have the details of the last passport used to enter or depart Australia? - My parents have never visited Australia so do i just click "NO" for this one?

The online application then jumps from from page 24/34 where it asks for Identity documents, to page 32/34 which is about Consent Declaration. Is it meant to be like that?

Also, when do I submit scanned copies of ID and a Police Check?

Any help from those who have already been through this process would be much appreciated.
