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
thank you for your response

Keep checking online.
According to their website, integrated police check for citizenship takes 15 business days maximum.Hopefully you will hear good news by next week.

Thanks Rach,

I will wait and see.

I don’t get it, why they need to do police check after the appointment? Didn’t you provide a copy of police check when submitted the application?

I think you are right, the case officer just said to me that the approval letter would come in a few weeks but did not mention any further checks as in some other cases in this thread.
Also, I have just found a potential issues with me if the approval letter wont come soon as I am planning to travel back to my home country to see my kids from 20 Dec to 10 Jan. I totally forgot about this at the interview. For now, probably I will wait for 2-3 weeks and see if I get the letter otherwise I will call and inform them. Would you think this is a good idea.

You will probably be back from your old home country before you become an Australian.

A couple of recent examples of timelines after the Test/Interview:

Test/Interview: 03/07/19. Test Approved: 03/09/19. Ceremony and Citizenship: 18/11/19.
Test/Interview: 14/05/19. Test Approved: 16/08/19. Ceremony and Citizenship: 28/11/19.

Going by those examples, it might be April / June before you get Citizenship. But it varies depending on what council area you are in.

The issue is that I am not approved yet after the test. Should I simply inform them from now about my travel plan? As far as I understood, the decision (approval) cannot be done if I am outside of AU.

I haven't seen anything about the test approval being unable to be done while outside Australia.

That could be quite important for some.
