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 ?
Hi Kamal,

So far you had a wonderful ride with the Home Affairs. From lodgement to test took only 10 days. That is the quickest I have seen from lodge to test.

I did my test on 22nd October 2019. The officer assured me that approval won't take long as ONLY Australian police clearance was the remaining task which the officer promised to do online.

Almost 4 weeks now and no update yet.

Travel plan:

This depends on you. I would not have travel considering all this delay in citizenship. I was also planning to go overseas but I Óbandoned it altogether as this will buy them more time to drag my application longer. "Once and for all" is my view.

If you have more pressing issue, then let them know and go. Otherwise wait for the approval.
For the ceremony contact your council after the approval and ask them any possible arrangement.


Hassan

Hey buddy, I had my test on 1st November and test office said same thing that my record is not coming clean so she has to put in a police check and will take couple of days or a week. I was stressed for few days as I never did anything wrong. Fortunately it got approved on 13th. Hopefully your will get approved soon.

Officer said same thing to me, I got my approval online after 12 days of test. I was really stressed though as I have never done anything wrong.

Hi Rach001,

Congratulations.

Mine is 4 weeks on now since test and said waiting police check. I have never done wrong in Aus and overseas. Even I don't have a traffic offence. No demerit point for speed.

Did you call them at any point?

How online? You mean status changed from received to approved?

Hi, I have applied for Citizenship in April 2019.
I have been 3 months overseas and logged that in my immi account but I haven't heard anything from them and status is still on recieved.
Now I would like to travel a bit in Australia and do some tour guiding jobs...Only thing is I am scared that changing residence every 6 months might affect the process.I've read somewhere here that is possible to send a FOI(not sure what that is) if there's no news for a while, would this be the case?
Any advice?
Thank you

Hey bro, I never called them even I didn’t login for like 10 days. I logged it on 15th nov and it was already updated on 13th to approve. I would suggest don’t check for like a week. Try log in on Friday around 4 pm.

Hey Arzak, if you have traveled overseas, it means you would have to provide oversight police clearance now. Also, changing many addresses are going to delay.

Damn really? They just specified they needed to be notified on the immi account on the website.
That means that I have to get police clearance from overseas, get a naati transaltion for it every time I want to go on holiday while I wait for the citizenship?
That's bad news but thanks heaps for the heads-up man.

That’s alright arzak, they clearly specify about police clearance requirements if you had traveled in last 9 or 12 months you need to provide PCC for any country you visit. If it’s in English you don’t need interpretation.
