That could be quite important for some.
@JandE: I think you are completely right, I call DIBP and the operator said it is just important to be noted so that they would not arrange the ceremony during my travel, rather than that, nothing is important.
Thanks for you advice as well.
At least it cleared out my mind so that I can book the ticket now.
I hope to update my approval status soon.

Hello everyone,
I have been asked to provide further documents/informations for my citizenship approval (I did and passed my test on 12th September) But I left Australia after my test cause I didn’t know I had to be in the country for the approval. They gave me 28 days to answer to their email. Which I did 2 days after. The email was on 4th November, haven’t heard anything since. Do they usually answer or say something within the 28 days? Or it could take longer?
Thanks in advance

Interview: 19 Nov 2019
Approval: awaiting
Just to update: I have just got it approved, so same day with the test. I noted that through my Immi account. I assumed a hard copy of the letter might come to my mailbox soon. Is that right?

Hi Mish and everyone,

It is exactly one month since my test date. Many of us got the approval within weeks after the test date.

The officer told me that she/he was happy with my documents and everything and would be happy to approve as soon as the police checks comes back.

Considering the officer's comments about my application, and the confidence the officer expressed to me, I was not expecting the police clearance could take 4 weeks.

What do you reckon guys? Should I wait for their action or should I call them or email them?

Please share with me your ideas.

Hassan

Hey Hassan, calling them won’t benefit as they gonna say same thing. Just have patience and don’t log in immiaccount for next few days. I was also stressed and couldn’t even swallow food when I thought about it, so I continued gym, work and trying to distract myself and I didn’t log in for like 10 days. So just focus on yourself and and wait for few days. You may approve soon and may get the Australia Day ceremony. So be positive and keep doing the right stuff.

Many thanks to you Rach for your honest advice.

It is so painful when you are given a big hope and turns it to be empty one.

I will take your advice and wait for them.

Calling them won't change anything and they will just tell you to be patient and wait. In all honesty the police clearance takes longer for some than other people. All you can do is wait.

I know of someone whose approval took almost 4 months and they are from a low risk country. There does not seem to be any reason why some take longer than others.
