I am in my third week after the citizenship test/interview. While others get their applications approved within the same day of the test/interview.

The officer plainly advised me twice that police check only is needed for my citizenship approval. Does the AFP check takes 3 weeks?

During my stay in Australia, I applied for AFP check three times (2 for PR process, 1 for work related ). Each of them took only 10 working days to arrive. Going by what the officer said, they do apply online. The officer did not mention though how they get the result i.e by online or postal.

Learning lessons and disparities in cases.

documents for birth country family

Hi Guys,

I have just started the process to apply for citizenship. I have filled the form and I am now looking at the list of documents to attach.
Do I need to provide a copy of my parents and siblings birth certificates? I had to fill their details in in the form but there is nowhere I can attach anything to prove who they are. I am very confused as a friend of mine did her application a couple of years ago and told me she had to attach her parents' passports.

Thanks for your help,
Cecile

I applied by paper application. I did the test. I did not include any of such documents. I only submitted my documents. Not parents no siblings documents.

Hi Dayna

Welcome to the waiting time. No one really has the accurate timeline of the applications. You can read all the comments in this thread for more clues. Also, you can check the immigration website about the processing times at this link: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citi...ocessing-times

Some locations are faster than others. What location did you apply in?

Some examples, from those I have seen on this forum, where relevant dates are shown.

Application to Ceremony - 7.5 to 24.4 months.
Test to Ceremony - 1.1 to 11.2 Months
Test Approval to Ceremony – 1.0 to 4.8 Months
Application to Test – 1.2 to 22.6 Months

Hi Hassan
My experience is similar to yours.
My timeline
Eligibility date 20 Oct 2019
Application submitted on 21 Oct 2019
Test / interview letter 30 Oct / very quick!!!😀
Test date 31 Oct 2019/ rescheduled from 2 Dec as I will heading overseas on that day.
Approval awaiting.
I asked the officer what to expect, she mentioned police check that she will do it online and then approval letter will be sent.
I told her about my travel plans on 2nd of Dec, she reassured me it will take less than a month. Now 2 weeks passed.
Do you advise me to travel for a month if I don’t get my approval ?
