Why doesn't the immigration just refuse my application ?

Why doesn't the immigration Department just refuse my citizenship application instead of making me wait 100 days for a test date?

Applied: 28 of October 2016
Acknowledgement letter: second of November 2016
Test Date: N/A
Approval letter: N/A
Council: Canterbury,Sydney
Parramatta immigration department
Ceremony: N/A

I'm currently on Visa subclass 200, came to Australia when I was 14
I don't have a birth certificate and I have written a statutory declaration(approved by JP) explaining why I can not provide a birth certificate.

Sorry but wouldn't it be better to wait for a test date than have your application refused? I am not sure I understand your question.

At least if my application was refused, I would know that there was something wrong. I don't know the reason for the delay

Hi Future citizen,
Government is just very slow and especially since it's recently been the holidays and citizenship team would have been very busy organising all the citizenship ceremonies on Australia Day. I am not sure what the standard processing time is but if it has passed you could try and contact DIBP at the global feedback unit and ask them when you might have an answer on your application.

80% are done in 80 days. So 20% of normal applications take over 80 days.

Yours could take longer still, due to documentation delays.

There has also been the Christmas closure in between.

Just down to waiting, as with all these things.

What do you mean by "due to documentation delays"?

so if they have not given me a citizenship test by early March then there would be something wrong?

You said this in your post, and I assume this could cause a delay.

Yours may be easier for them to pass to a more senior person for finalising, for that reason, and could cause a delay.

Don't you think a 100 days is enough to pass it through

As with anything in this process, the amount of time to pass things can greatly exceed the predicted times.

Most take up to 80 days. Add another 10 days for Christmas and it hits 90 days, add a bit more for your birth certificate issue and .. who knows.
20% of applications take more than 80 days anyway.

There are people waiting for visas that should take about 9 months, but end up waiting 12-15 months. One even took 9 years. They still got it though.

We have to accept that things sometimes take longer than usual.
