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

Hi all

I reckon this will help everyone. I don't have a birth certificate and I never uploaded it either. As a supporting document, I uploaded my Year 10 and 12 certificates and a combination of them showed my parents name and my DOB.

I had my citizenship interview today, the case officer told me what documents to show and she asked for my passport, medicare care, driver's licence and she herself said just your Year 10 and 12 certificates, please.

**No birth certificate was asked for. I asked her again, is that sufficient? She said, yes I am happy with these documents.

Also, I would highly recommend keeping checking the appointments as I moved mine - see signature.

Congratulations Abs.

That was wonderful news. Very short period indeed. You applied in July 2019 and your app is approved.

I have applied on 3rd of May 2019.
Still no news.

If you don't mind, what is your nationality?
I am from Kenya.

Hi Hassan

I am from India. I reckon it is on a case by case basis, one of my mates, applied a week before me and he hasn't heard anything yet.

You will her soon! Good luck

Once they send you an appointment, just keep checking online and you will get something sooner. That's exactly what I did.

Congrats to you.

Just have a question.
I am on the process of attaching documents to my citizenship application through ImmiAccount. I am just wondering how did you attach other documents such as the AFP police check since in the "Recommended" part, I cant attach other docs aside only the Form 1195. Even if I want to attach my utilities bill and current lease, the online system just asked me to attach one (1) document only.

Hope you can enlighten me on this. Thanks for your reply in advance.

- Identity confirming name, gender, parents and place of birth : Birth Certificate issued by the Indian consulate in Melbourne.
- Proof of First arrival in Australia: My old passport with arrival stamps in it.
- Identity proof: My current passport and Australian Driving License.
- Address Proof: Water Bill & My current Lease.
- Additional documentation: AFP Police check. It doesn't specifically ask for it but I thought, might as well. 8 days to my interview and test.

Hopefully approval comes soon after followed by the ceremony. Hoping to get it all sorted before 2020 kicks in but not holding my breath.

You can upload one document at a time but you can do that multiple times.

For anything that's not listed, use the 'other' tab.

I don't think AFP check is needed as they do it. I didn't upload and got approved.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Congratulations for the test and the approval for your partner. And your partner is from high risk country. This is outstandingly lucky case. As you mentioned, some people are waiting for more than 20 months currently.

I have applied in early May 2019. Didn't hear anything so far.

Enjoy,
