My husband has his approval and his ceremony will be on Australia Day. Even though his approval was fast it honestly doesn't matter since the ceremony is almost 6 months after approval.
I'll just carry on waiting then.
That's great news though Mish. Australia Day, perfect!

Hi Mish

Great news on your husband's ceremony!

How do you know that it will be on Australia Day?

My partner applied in Brisbane, did his test and received his approval in early September 2019 (original application was in May 2018). I'm hopeful that his ceremony will also be on Australia Day 2020 but would like to find out now rather than be disappointed if we don't receive a letter in January.

Is there any way to find out in advance of the letter being sent out?

Thanks for your help.

I received an email from Home Affairs last week informing me that I have an Australia Day ceremony. I guess maybe the same happened for Mish's husband?

The email gives the date and time of the ceremony and states that a formal letter will follow.

You can contact your local council and they will tell you if you are on the list and for what ceremony. If they don't have him listed you can contact immigration and they will give you the proposed ceremony date.

My husband applied in May 2018 as well ... it has been a really long road especially with 2019 applicants being processed so fast.

Thanks for your responses msamy & Mish.

I did call the citizenship number but the person I spoke to said that we would have to wait for the letter to come out.

I will contact the council and hopefully we will have more luck.

We got a tentative date. I asked for the dates of the ceremonies in Brisbane as we were planning a short holiday and didn't want it to clash. I didn't expect to be given a tentative date.

As an update I spoke to the Council and while they were friendly they weren't able to help. All they could confirm was that they hold 8-10 ceremonies a year and it would not necessarily be held by them.

Not long after I checked the mailbox and there was an invitation to a ceremony in two weeks at the immigration office.

I guess the waiting is finally over

Hi SIB,

Congratulations for the approval. Sit back and relax. Just ceremony left for u.

You are an Ausy.

This kind of news comforts me as I am waiting for the approval for a month now.

Enjoy Aus passport after you get the citizenship.
