Thanks
Council does 2 to 3 weeks before the ceremony and about 2 days prior you also get a text message reminder about the ceremony.

Immigration forward the list for the ceremony to the council.

Council told me they wait for correspondence from the department then they add me on their “ceremony” waitlist. I’ve been told that my council has been reprimanded by the Department for long a ceremony waitlist. That they’ve been told to pull up their socks. Thing is that after councils merged, they didn’t find a bigger location to host citizenship ceremonies, so they still do 100-150 per month but two huge councils merged.

Thanks Gerrwins for the clarification.

In your case, did they tell you that they have your name on the list received from the Home Affairs?

We gave the interview and test a week ago got the approval letter for my wife and child in the mail today, when I checked online my application status still shows received whereas my wife and child’s status says approved ! We have mentioned in our application that we want to attend the ceremony together so keeping the fingers crossed for a quick approval for me too!

Good luck to everyone 👍🏻

Congra for your wife and the child.

Yours won't be long as well. Usually when you choose to attend the ceremony together, they will submit the approved list to the council at the same time. They might not get the ceremony letters before yours is approved.
