Hi Mk83,

Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes I was looking at 18 months and more based on the trend we have been seeing. 5.5 months was not expected. It was an utterly shock for me to see the letter in the appointment letter.

I will keep on checking for closer date, ie this week. I am well prepared for the test.
I hope your ceremony comes soon.

will update you

Help

Hi Everyone, I will be eligible to apply for my citizenship next month and I have a question to ask: Do I need a National police Clearance or not? I read some people didn't need it... If I need one does a copy of the original less than 3 months old (Scan copy) is enough or do I need the original to take with me at some stage? (I don't have it anymore). Thanks for your help. Martin.

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

Update.


I was able to schedule my test from 11 December to today. Passed with 100%.

They said waiting for police check from Australia to come back and approval will follow.


I thought they already did the police check.

Hi Everyone,


Before and after the test yesterday, according what the officer told me, the officer was satisfied with the documents and happy to approve my application as soon as the police check comes back. The officer also said that they request it online, it can take seconds, days or weeks to hear back from the Australian Police. I even asked if they police check is from Australia. The officer said yes only Australia.

What do you think this comments were, is it normal for everyone ? how long do you think the police check can take?

You do not need to provide police clearance. I did my test yesterday, I didn't prove any police check. They told me they do it by themselves.

Also, a friend of my mine has offered to apply the police check by himself after he completed the test., but they said big 'NO'. They told him not to worry they do it on his behalf online.

Thanks mate, could you just confirm what documents do I need? Birth certificates, Passport copies and utilities bills? Cheers.

Depends on the documents you provided during application.

I provided:
1- Passport original.
2- Drivers license- Original (Australia)
3- Birth certificate- original (English)
4- Internet bill letter (Residential address purpose).

those are the docs presented and the officer was satisfied with the documents. Took my photo with their camera, and allowed to proceed to the testing computer.

How long it will take is the million dollar question. I have seen people from UK and USA take longer than those from Ghana and Egypt, so who really knows.

I thought they did security checks too as those who do FOI's usually have biometrics outstanding for x countries.

Hi Mish,

Thanks for your opinion. I have seen a friend who was told the same, and has been waiting for more than 12 months and still counting.



We will see what happens and will let everyone know


Hassan
