Citizenship Timeline

Hello everyone,

Thought i'd share my timeline

Applied: July 2018
Interview/ Test: 10th April 2019
Passed test 100 %
Approved: 17 July 2019 ( on my birthday!)
Approval letter : TBC
Waiting for ceremony date: Inner West Council

Some background:

I applyed having been on a 189 Visa. I was eligible to apply for citizenship, but dragged my feet around until the potential changes to eligibility made this a priority!

It's also important to note ( for applicants with similar/ potentially similar backgrounds) that I happened to incur a section 10 while on my PR that was in place for 12 months.

This further pushed the timings for my application as you get an instant rejection if you apply for citizenship with such an order ( you fail the character test). I truthfully put this on my application and when it came to my interview, the interviewer was very chill about it.

Delays to my approval were NOT to do with the section 10, but the name change I had recently undergone. It was a requirement for me to show that I was using my new name ( Drivers License, Medicare + Bills), otherwise, I would have likely had a same day approval.

Now, just waiting on the ceremony invite, which I believe will take the allocated 6 months as my suburb sits in the recently amalgamated Inner West council and the area it presides over is HUGE!

PM me for questions on the above, happy to help

Just logged in to Immiaccount and saw my application was approved on 24 July 2019. Says ceremony is generally 6 months after approval. Mine is Bayside Council NSW....apparently one of the worst performing in terms of Citizenship ceremony backlogs. I won’t hold my breath for a ceremony date in 6 months, it will probably be in the next 8 to 10 months.

All the best to all still waiting.

Hi all,

I just got approved with my citizenship application! Here is my timeline.

Eligible - 5 Sept 2018
Applied - 5 Sept 2018
Acknowledged - 5 Sept 2018
Invitation received - 6 Jun 2019
Test day - 7 Aug 2019 (I rescheduled online from 5 Sept to 7 Aug 2019)
Approved - 7 Aug 2019 (online)

Two questions guys, please help:

1. Does the online status "Approved" means that I will get a formal letter soon?
2. Can I travel overseas once I obtain the formal letter?

Best

Hi everyone,

I just have a quick question about documents to take to the test. I'm due to move house a week before my test. Does anyone know what I should do in this situation? take proof of both new and old address?

Thanks!

It sounds like you didn't provide them with enough documents to verify your identity when you applied if they are asking for additional documents to verify your identity.

Interesting that they are asking for a declaration of service. Have you served in the army?

Did they give you an interview date? At the interview they will ask if you have any planned travel within the next 6 months. You can't be overseas when they approve the application.
