That is weird?

Wish you success in this hectic process

I received my approval on 24 July, still waiting on ceremony invitation. Was told it would take 6 months at least. I won’t hold my breath, I’ll give it 8-10 months.

I think the ceremony should be within 6 months of the approval by law(I am not sure).

I have never seen anyone who has waited for more than 6 months. the hell sits from application date to approval date, but after approval, it is always quick.

Three recent examples:
  • Test Date to Ceremony date: 2 months (1 month to approval, then 1 month to ceremony)
  • Test Date to Ceremony date: 5 months (0.2 month to approval, then 4.8 month to ceremony)
  • Test Date to Ceremony date: 7.9 months (6.7 month to approval, then 1.2 month to ceremony)

In July 2019
75% took under 5 months from date of approval to ceremony.
10% took over 6 months.

12 months by law. The letter says they are usually within 6 months but may take longer depending on the council.

The only thing is I can think of is that you did not provide all the required ID documents when you applied. If that is the case then you will get a request to supply them at some point.

Other than that I have no idea, the above is the only reason I can think of at the moment.

What visa class number did you get your PR under?

You can ring your local council and see if you are on the list. I am not sure when the council gets the lists and how far in advance.

Hi Mish,

I am curious to know who sends the ceremony letter. The council or The Home affairs?


Thanks
