That's about the same time frame as mine, when I did it in 2011.!!

Maybe we should move

I just saw that Cairns also has 12 Citizenship ceremonies each year. Ours has 4...

It will be interesting to see how fast you get the Citizenship ceremony.

When was her 100 granted?

My immigration timeline is similar to that of your partner.

My 309 was granted in April 2015.
PR 100 was granted in September 2017.

I was eligible to apply the citizenship in early May 2019 and applied on the eligibility date.

What council are you?

I heard the last Brisbane City Council ceremony had about 650 new citizens ... that is insane!!

There is still a huge backlog in Brisbane too for ceremonies.

Lockyer Valley.

I actually did mine in Brisbane, in 2011, even though I lived in a different council area.

I am probably thinking too soon about this, as she can't apply until February, and some of these backlogs may be cleared by the time she gets to hers.

It is like the visa process though, just can't stop thinking about it now.

I think the backlog will be reduced by February.

they approx process 30,000 per month. and They are getting around 12,000 new apps every month. According to their monthly processing updates, they indicated in August, 180,000 apps in hand including 11000 news apps in August. And now they updated for September on 16/10/2019. They say roughly 160,000 apps in hand, and the new apps in Sept were roughly 11,000.

This is a big change compare to the backlog of 225,000 in the first quarter of this year.

https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citi...ocessing-times

So my hope is that the trend goes the same or even better, so that the backlog goes to 80,000 or lower by February, 2020.

Hello Gusy,

An update on my application.

Test has been booked for me on in the middle of december Decemeber 2019.

I did not received the email about the test. I only opened today my immiaccount, and saw the unexpected letter issued on 19 October 2019. I was able reschedule to next Week. The appointment letter regarding the new date came through to both my immiaccount and email address.

If I were not having an online immiaccount, I would be very unlucky that I would miss the appointment.

Reminder of my Timeline:

Eligiblity date: 03/05/2019.
Application date: 03/05/2019.
Test Appointment Date: 09/10/2019.
Rescheduled to : 31/10/2019.

Time taken between lodgement and test date: 5 Months, 16days

Good luck to everyone.
Hassan
