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
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would not be able to use my Overseas passport after I take the oath right?
So I am left with no choice but to get the Aussie Passport. Is this correct?

Did they need to make an appointment in advance, at the passport office, for the urgent passport, or just turn up.

It says to make an appointment, but I just turned up when I did mine. I think I waited about 30-45 minutes to be seen.

That reminds me, the person next to me was turned away as their passport photo was the wrong size. Not sure passport photos are done the same way now though. I'll have to check with my daughter, she did hers last year.

Hi JanE,

H3 called them before going there. They told him to come with application and the price. Because there was an emergency, his Mum passed away at the time. So he explained to them.


I hope they still do if one can pay the hefty price regardless.

I think post office is always upto date with any new passport size photo requirement.

I am waiting for approval. If I am done with twi remaining
steps(Approval&ceremony), I will straight away apply for passport.

Please share your timelines even if you have finished with your ceremonies.

Hello everyone, I need some clarification. Is it true that time spent on a tourist visa counts towards the 4 years needed to apply for citizenship. Is this correct?

Thanks

As long as it is all consecutive valid visa periods, with other visas.

We are counting visitor visa, followed by immediate PMV, then 820 and 801.

Hi, thank you for reply.
I arrived in Australia in August 2015 under tourist visa, multiple entry, exit every 3 months. (maximum 1 week outside AU). Then I was on bridging visa (application for partner visa) in May 2016. Then PR approved in December 2018. Am I eligible to apply for citizenship this December?

From I have seen, that sounds OK. It is actually quite similar to my wife's timeline for this:

6th October 2015: Arrived in Australia on visitor visa valid to 6 Oct 2016.
14th March 2016: PMV granted (no need for bridging visa though)
18th August 2016: 820 granted
20th February 2019: 801 granted

4 Years residence covered between 6/10/15 and 6/10/19
1 year PR covered between 20/2/19 and 20/2/20

The later date of the two is therefore: 20th February 2020, ie: the Citizenship Eligibility date.

I understand the rules to be:
The last 4 years, on any temporary, permanent or bridging visa, with a maximum of 12 months overseas; and
The last 12 months, on a permanent visa, with a maximum of 3 months overseas

That is right.

Once you take the oath, you became an Australian citizen. Hence no visa for your and you can't use overseas passport without a visa. By law, you need to have an Australian passport for you to enter/depart Australia after the oath.
