Residence Calculator - Lawful Residence Date

Hello

I arrived in Australia on 1 Nov 2012 via working holiday visa and left Australia 31/10/2013. after I got TR and came back Australia 8 Oct 2014

I also travel oversea from 1/5/2015 to 15/5/2015 , 1/5/2016 to 15/5/2016, 1 Nov 2017 to 4 Dec 2017.

When I call immigration in Oct 2017, they advise me I can apply in around 10 Nov 2017, but I called them 11/12/2017, they said is Oct 2018.

Could you please advise why I need another year?

I enter 1 Nov 2012 as Lawful Residence Date in Residence Calculator,
I can apply Citizenship now, However, when I call immigration they say Oct 2018.

Also, is citizenship act change in July 2018?

Hi Seven -

In addition to the regulations re maximum period of absence from Australia, it is also required that you have been in Australia on the day exactly 4 years prior to applying for citizenship - that pushes your eligibility based on your info below to 8 Oct 2018 assuming you continue to meet the residency requirements re absence. I am assuming you have been a PR for at least 12 months as well.

The government has indicated their intention to make another try to change the citizenship rules in 2018 - no good way to predict if/when they will be successful or what parts they will try to change this time, but they are talking about a 1 July 2018 implementation date - all speculation at the moment however.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
