My case is:
Date applied: 03 Nov 2020
City/Council area: Hume (VIC); Moved to Darebin (VIC)
Online / Paper: Online
Date received the acknowledgement email: 03 Nov 2020
Received notification of Citizenship Interview and Test: 01 Feb 2022
Date of the Citizenship Interview and Test: 10 March 2022
Citizenship Approval: 10 March 2022
Received Ceremony Invitation: Pending
Date of ceremony: Pending

So it was a long time until I got my interview. Around 14mos. Now I am waiting for my Ceremony invitation and date. A friend of mine applied last Oct 2020 and got his interview/ test last 25 Feb 2022 and just last week got his invitation to the ceremony on the 2nd week of April 2022.


So hopefully the invitation for the ceremony should be in the next 2-3 weeks.

Congratulations! Wow, you had your citizenship in less than 3 months. It must be different waiting times for everyone regarding the ceremony. Mine is about to go to the max processing time of 6months and still no ceremony date.

Which council have you applied by the way? And is your ceremony in the CBD? Thanks

Finally got my ceremony invitation and then took the ceremony last 17 Sept 2022. The total waiting time from citizenship approval test to ceremony is a bit more than 6 months and from application start to ceremony is around 22 months! Anyway, thank you to those who've helped me with valuable information and insights and good luck to those still waiting.
