Update : I received the appointment letter this morning and interview date is 18th Mar 2021. I am planning to prepone to an earlier date if slots are available. Is it okay if reschedule or is it better to wait till the specified appointment date.

Hi everyone,

I have applied for my citizenship in Feb 2020 and we are living in the LGA of Wyndham council ( Greater Melbourne Area)
Would someone know when I can expect to receive some update on my application as it is more than a year and still no update other the initial acknowledgement. IS there a way I could check the reason for delay or is it just wait and watch approach.

Appreciate your inputs/insights.

Cheers,
K

Eligible: 26 Jan 2020
Applied: 05 Feb 2020
Location requested: Wyndham ( Melbourne)

Citizenship Test

Hi All,

I just got the citizenship test call for 6th March 2021 at Sydney.

I applied in July last year. My question is, I am moving houses this weekend and my documents are the current residential address.

The driving license and utility bills have my current address. Will they still be valid for the test or should I move my test and wait to change the address in all these documents?

I have the contract for the new Utility bills though in my new address. No bill are generated though.

Please advice.

Dont bother much. There are few people who applied around Feb 2020 yet to get their ceremony. Seems like BCC is having a huge backlog for ceremonies.. For complete dates:

When is the next ceremony in Brisbane does anyone know ?
Thanks 😊
Hi there,

Am submitting my citizenship application next month. Do we need PCC from India? I have been travelling out of Australia quite frequently but have never stayed over 12 months continuously elsewhere. It takes 6 weeks to get PCC, so just planning to get in advance if it is a requirement.

Which city council are you located? Am in Brisbane in the northside as well (Carseldine). Did you get your ceremony invite?

Regards,
Madhav

From what I understand,

You need to provide an overseas PCC, if the total time spent outside Australia added up to 12 months or more; and the time spent in any one country was more than 90 days.

E.g. If you lived in India for more than 90 days continuously after you got your PR, you need to get a India PCC.

Citizenship Ceremony

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the council's still do Online Ceremonies and if they do, how do we choose to have an online ceremony? Is it by choice or completely upto the council?

Also is there a thread here to tracking ceremonies on this forum?

Online Ceremonies are done by DOHA and not council. Which state are you from and when did you give you test ?
