You will not be eligible for citizenship until you hold your PR for 1 year or more.

If you didn't need to hold PR for 1 year then majority of the people on the 801 waiting thread would be able to get citizenship as soon as they are granted their 801.
Of course I have my permanent 801 since October 2016,i lived with my partner 4 years in Australia,,just I want to know if I need supporting documents that's all....thanks

Yes Dany, according to the basic details you have provided to us, I sincerely believe that you are right - You will only need the basic identity and good character supporting documents - you don't need the other supporting documents that you listed earlier.

I totally agree with Mish, that the other documents you listed earlier would only be required if you and/or your partner have been living overseas. Mish is very well informed.

I also agree with JandE, that the citizenship rules may change between now and October. It would be very wise to keep up to date with what Parliament and the DIBP are doing.

Hope this helps.

I agree!! Citizenship rules are currently under review at the moment so anything can happen. There are rumors that they will make it a requirement for an English test. I also heard rumors of 5 years as well.

Pretty lucky in Australia on that score. Some countries are really tough.
Netherlands: Netherlands introduces Dutch language test for immigrants
Philippines: You must speak and write either Spanish or English plus one of the major local languages.

This was back in 2015: English test should be mandatory for people wanting citizenship in Australia, says Liberal MP Sharman Stone

Many countries require at least “functional” on a language test, but how is functional defined.

As long as they allow waivers of the test - Native English Speakers, university degree delivered in English etc...

Just rumors as everything. I would imagine it would be functional English along the same lines as what is required for spouses migrating to the UK, if it does happen.
