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?

It is normal. The interview is juts general questions about your identity docs.

You can re-schedule the test by follow the instruction on you appointment letter. Depends if you get an earlier date available.

Go to the website given in the letter your received. The email you got contains an attachment.

The "interview" is more a check to make sure you documents are okay thing. Then you do the test on the computer which will probably take a couple of minutes.

Being able to reschedule depends on where you are doing it. If you are doing it at an immigration office then there is a link in the email to reschedule. If you are doing it at a Centrelink office you will need to ring them to see if there is an earlier date.

I hope for your sake that it is done at an immigration office as those done at a Centrelink office takes forever and nobody gets same day approval either at a Centrelink office as it needs to be sent to the immigration department.

Hi Mish

I have never heard a citizenship ainterview/test is done at Centrelink. You that is how good this forum is. I learn alot from you guys and it is good to be part of this online forum community.

It was good to know that.


How does that work? Human service officer will conduct it or immi officers come to the office and conduct it? Please tell us more about it.

It is for the locations where they is no immigration office. I know sunshine coast applicants do theirs at Centelink. I found it out from Facebook lol.

I believe they are done by Centelink staffs one mentioned about having to send the information to Centelink.

I know someone on the sunshine coast who said if they had known they would have picked Brisbane as their nearest location.

Thank you Mish for sharing these valuable information with us as you have been doing for the last several years.
From now, anyone that not in the urban area might know that there is possibility of their interview/test conducted in Centrelink.

Mine was done in a Centrelink office. This is because I live in rural QLD. I had to travel 4 hours to do it. I was advised that for those who live in rural, Centrelink processes the application, hence the long wait.

Mine just got approved today(online). I had my test last July 3, 2019, took two months to get approved. Now waiting for ceremony.

Hi Johnykitong,

Thanks for your information. I was totally in the dark about centrelink can be delegated to perform Home Affairs' work like citizenship tests.

I am sure your migration journey is coming to an end soon as you only wait one more communication for the ceremony.


Keep us in your prayers as we still sail through the citizenship process.

Wish you a quick ceremony invitation to wind up the devastating journey.

Thank you mate, mine was a long journey. I applied January 28, 2018 and only got the invitation for the test last June 2019(one and a half year of wait). I hope the ceremony won't take long.

I certainly wish the best in your application. I hope yours get processed soon!

Depends on the council but they say less than 6 months. Brisbane there ceremony wait is about 4-6 months. Any recent approvals for Brisbane are most likely looking at an Australia Day ceremony unless someone can't make their ceremony and they are next on the list.

Hi,

I have been invited for my Citizenship test in Nov 2019. I applied for all my visas/ citizenship in my maiden name as I was not married when I applied. I have since got married and have officially changed my name over. Do I need to just take my marriage certificate in with me as proof of name change as some (not all ) of my IDs are now in married name.
Or do I need to inform immi before the test about my name change and if so how do I do this?
Thanks
