Hi everyone,

My husband will be eligible for citizenship early next month and I have a few questions:

-in regards to the rule about being in Australia when the citizenship is granted can you still be oversees AFTER submitting the application but BEFORE completing the test?

- we are in Melbourne. I understandtests are on hold. I assume they'll be a massive backlog due to this. Correct? Has HA said anything about how the intend to address the backlog (haha likely wishful thinking, I know!)

- what is the best way to study for the test?
--- I understand there is a podcast and booklet? Where do I access these? A

---re there any websites with up-to-date practice questions?

Hi, had my test yesterday (24 March 2021) and passed (100%). Still waiting for my IMMI status to change to Approved.

Anyone have any estimates on how long before I may receive a ceremony invite for Newcastle NSW? I see the next ceremony is planned for 28 April 2021.

Further timeline information in my signature.

Hi, Did you get your ceremony date ?
It's a bit quiet with ceremony dates lately on here.
I wonder if the ceremony for Brisbane due this Thursday 1 April will be done online or cancelled. This would mean a second cancellation pushing some of us further back !

Yup my ceremony scheduled for 1st April has been cancelled for now.
Council will advise once the new ceremony date is confirmed.
Im guessing it will be by 4th week of April depending on how the Covid situation in Brisbane shapes up.
