-Request for Documents in Support of your Identity, Please refer to the attachment Request for Documents in Support of your Identity. This includes a list of documents you may be able to provide in support of your identity prior to your arrival in Australia.
my timeline is :
Applied :30 Oct 2017.
Acknowledgement message:15 Dec 2017.
Since then i havent heard anything till today, and whenever i call immi and ask them ,they reply nothing wrong ,under process.

If anyone has similar request let me know about the coming process, whats gonna happen after that request ?. Is it a good sign ?
What about if i have booking to go averseas after 3 Weeks ,is it better to cancel it .
I am wondering what to do .
Any info and advices are appreciated .
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.
Hi Mish.
I havent got an interview yet neither the test date.they only asked me to provide this info.
And yesI have served in the army ,and about my idendity i provide them everything i have which is ID and passport and about travel ,do u think is it better to cancel my trip now until i get the test date or the approval ?what other things u advice .
Thanks .

The interview and test are done on the same day but essentially it is making sure you have all the correct documents.

ID and passport is not enough to confirm your identity for citizenship which is why they are asking for more. You do need a birth certificate (I think might accept a family registration certificate in lieu of a birth certificate). You also need to supply the 1195 when you applied too.

Travel is up to you. It could be days, weeks or months till they email you the test date.

Hi All
I applied for citizenship in April 2018, had my citizenship test in May 2019. The status of my application still says"Received" and no further information has been requested as of today.

My ques is- Should the status say "In Progress" or something after the citizenship test or there is a chance that it may change directly from "Received" to "Finalized or approved"

It will sit as "received" and then will change to "approved" once it has been approved.

I don't think being overseas before the invitation is sent but not 100% sure. I do know that after the test they cannot approve the application if you are outside of Australia.

Travel would be an issue also if the travel then makes you have to have a police check done for that country.

Applied for Citizenship: 15-March-2018
Test Invitation: 01-May-2019
Test date: 12-Jun-2019 (Pass test 100%)
Test Centre: Parramatta,NSW
Council:Cumberland Council
Approval letter: Waiting
Ceremony: Waiting

Its been 2 months since I passed the test and still waiting. Anyone here in the same boat waiting for 2 months or more after giving the test ?

Getting a bit worried now. I wonder what is holding up my application ? I even called them up today to find out but they said I need to wait they provide any updates on my application.

Regards
Bamborabi

I dont really know what is the reason as I have even asked the CO if she needs any other documents she said you are good to go cant think of anything more.
Hi AngeliquePrince,

Any update on your application ? has it been approved ? Mine is still in received status in immi account. Even after passing test on June 12th.

Regards

Hi Bamborabi,

You are not alone. And even yours is better. I know 6 people who are my friends and their friends who did the test last year March, April,and June who are still waiting for the approval. Let alone ceremony. I mean they did in 2018 within those months mentioned above.

So relax. This is a general issue. Not specific to one person or group of people.

Unless they start clearing the backlog as soon as possible, there will be a disaster in the citizenship department and they will fail their mandates of delivering these services. More than 200,000 applications sitting with them, and more are still submitted. It is horrible thing.
