Test Center: Parramatta
Approval Letter: 25-Apr-2019
Ceremony Invitation: Waiting
Council: Cumberland

I have a question -

Is invitation for ceremony is only via post mail or do we receive any e-mail / SMS / phone?

What if I miss the post mail due to some reason like address change or out of country etc.? How would I know that they had sent me a letter?

Thanks,
Amol
I have been told you get the letter in the mail 2-3 weeks before the ceremony and then a text message 2 days prior.

I would think your ceremony will be soon since generally the ceremony is no later than 6 months after approval. However, sometimes it can be longer than 6 months (depending on the council) but I haven't seen any longer than 6 months yet.

Hi Mish

Thank you for your reply. I am just worried about myself since the people who applied for citizenship and sat interview after me have got their application approved and also the ceremony dates.
Does the department pick and choose randomly or do I need to do anything at my end. I have not got any message by department requesting for additional documents or anything after my test.

Unfortunately there is no logical sequence that immigration seem to do it. Some people say it is the police checks and security checks and the time they take are different for each person.

Unfortunately all you can do is wait until it is approved. I know people who have even done FOI's and even that hasn't gotten them an approval.

Hi All,

Just an update to my timeline, became eligible for citizenship 6 June 2018 and applied that day, getting confirmation through the ImmiAccount the following day. Since then, nothing.

Today I received an email advising of an Appointment for Australian citizenship interview with standard test on 23 October. Is this the norm? I wasn't expecting an interview, just a 45min test computerised test. Also, I've seen others who have rescheduled their tests sooner, by contacting someone or doing it through a website maybe, but I cannot see anything in my email about being able to bring this forward.

Does anyone here have a similar experience?
