I know a lady passed the test but they told her they will send a request for more info. So her application was not approved yetYou say you received 2 requests for information in the 2 weeks after passing the test. Those requests might have a bearing on what is happening.
I didn't think that they would request anything after the test. We heard nothing after passing the test, until the notification of ceremony.
Yes, I know a guy got his citizenship certificate after 7 months from applying. Si it is not uncommonHi all,
My friend who applied for citizenship by conferral 5 months ago just received his notification of approval of Australian citizenship. He sent me the letter and I'm looking at it now.
On the website it says that 90% of applications are processed within 17 months.
For people who follow this thread or in the know, is it common to see applications processed in 5 months?
Congrats.. I thought they send the invitation to ceremony 4 weeks before ceremony dayI’ve been following this thread and thought I’d share my timeline.

So who send the invites? Home affairs or the council? Do we need to confirm attendance?Hi, our understanding is that going O/S will not affect the date of your ceremony. Home Affairs/Immi organise everything and forward your details along with the certificate to your local council and it's the council events people who send out the invites 3-4 weeks ahead of the ceremony date. That is what we were told by our local council here in Bendigo Victoria.
