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

Unfortunately every case is different. I know someone who was told the same and they had their approval by the time they got home from the test.

What country is your friend from?

He is from Somalia. And has been waiting more than 12 months now after the test.No approval yet.

And that is right, all cases are not the same. the other day, someone from Philippine said the approval came immediately after the test and Philipine is among the high risk countries, like my country Kenya.

Unfortunately I haven't heard anything about Somalia.

My husband's approval took less than time people from the UK and USA that I know of. It even took less time then all of his Egyptian friends so who knows. He did however have to wait longer for a test as well, so maybe that has something to do with it, I really don't know. It is all a guessing game. In all honesty I expected the approval to take longer than it did.

Yeah Mish.
Somalia is in Africa, a high risk country according to their list. It used to be quick for Somalis as any other people pre-2017.

I am not expecting it sooner, I am happy if I get it within the next 6 months. It can even take longer. We have to expect everything.

Thanks Mish.

Congratulations for the test Duszek,

You know it looks Brisbane office doing something faster than before. May be part of the Home affairs plan to reduce the backlog caused by the proposal of citizenship legislation changes.

My application is at Brisbane too and did the test on 22 October, roughly 5.5 months after application date- 3/05/2019.

Good luck with your test mate.

Hi Guys,
I finally got a ceremony date on Nov 18(Monday) 2019.
My problem is that I have an overseas trip on Nov 22(Friday) 2019.

Is there a chance that I can get my Aussie passport sorted in 3 business days? I know in the website they said Rapid service is available but would my Citizenship appear in the system after 1 day of the ceremony?
I also know that it is advised to apply for a passport after 10 days but my overseas trip has been booked way earlier in the year.

Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hmm, second today with similar, so the same answer..

When I did mine, I had the citizenship ceremony first thing in the morning, and applied for the passport by about noon. It was ready for collection by 4pm. But I did pay extra for a fast passport process, and I lodged personally at a passport office.

Best to ring, before the date, for an appointment.
See bottom of this page:
Need a passport in less than two business days?
https://www.passports.gov.au/urgent-applications

I did mine a few years ago, but they can still do them quickly. My daughter got a renewal done fast, the same day, just last year.

Where is your ceremony being held?

Hi JandE,

Thank you for your response.
My ceremony will be held in rural QLD(Roma), 6hr drive from Brisbane.

If I can apply for it the next day, I need to do it in Brissy. As long as they can accept my passport application, I should be good.

Hearing from your story, I think I have enough time to organise it before my overseas trip. Thank you so much!

A friend had his passport processed within one day in June 2019. He sumbitted at 11 and collected at 4 pm. Even they had to called him for collection.
He paid around double the normal price. Not sure the amount.

He had the citizenship more 12 months though. Just replying to whether there is quick process or not.


Good luck
