You would need to pick the other location at time of applying as the difference in time is from when you apply to the test date. For example most in Brisbane are waiting 12 months or more for a test date, where those in Hobart (or it could be Launceston but can't remember) get a test date in about 3 months.

You do need to also show documentation with your address on when you apply as well. The question would be if immigration check that documentation and if so would they then change your location based on that documentation.

How times change. When I did mine, almost 10 years ago, my councils times were too long, so I got it done in Brisbane as they were faster.

I would have thought Brisbane would be faster than Sydney and Melbourne but is seems that they are either on par or slower. I guess more people are moving to Brisbane now.

Even the Sunshine Coast is not much better than Brisbane but the approval takes longer as it is a regional. I know someone who is waiting a ceremony for Sunshine Coast so we shall see what the wait is for approval to ceremony to Sunshine Coast if it is about the same as Brisbane or not. Brisbane is close to the 6 months from approval at the moment, however they should clear a huge backlog of people for ceremonies on Australia Day.

Hello Everyone!

Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.

Just wanted to share that my Citizenship application has been approved by the grace of God I applied via paper application at Brisbane's Immigration Office.

My immigration journey is in my signature

My apologies I haven't posted in a very long time

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the seniors and experts on this forum who have been a huge source of information for me during our long immigration journey which originally started in November 2008.

In addition to being a rich source of information, this forum gave me a lot of support when the wait felt like was going to be never ending and light at the end of the tunnel felt like was far out of sight.
Thank you so much!!

Wishing all applicants all the very best, I hope your good news is just around the corner

Best Wishes,
Becky

For the interest of overview of processing, on behalf of my friend, I share his eligibility as follows:

Eligibility: 12/12/2018.
Applied by paper: 18/12/2018.
email with test appointment: 29/08/2019.
Initial test date: 11/11/2019.
Re-scheduled to: 24/09/2019(Today)
Passed with 95%.

From application to the receipt test email: almost 9 moths.


That was my friend's case, though. Not my case.

Hi. Did you receive two mails from post, one from Immigration about the approval and the council inviting you to attend the citizenship ceremony? Thanks.

I received just one letter by post from the Department of Home Affairs advising of the Citizenship ceremony to be held at my local council area then two days ago I received an SMS reminder.

Hi Gerrywins,

I am happy for you and congratulations for the final step in becoming Australian Citizen. It has been a long journey but finally, the wait worth it.

As I am also from Kenya, have you been using the first generation/old passport or the new digital one for your citizenship application, as the country is facing out the old one?

I arrived in 2015 on the old passport, but replaced in early 2018. So I don't know if changing the passport I initially arrived on will make things different with Aus immigration.

Enjoy your life.

I am not sure if the passport change would have much effect.

When I did my Citizenship in 2011, I didn't even have a valid passport. It had expired and I didn't bother to renew it. It had no effect on my citizenship application.

But, I suppose things can change over time.
