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 donít get my approval ?
Update
Approved in immiaccount on Saturday 30/11/2019
Just 2 days before my planned travel
Taken exactly 40 days from application date to approval, canít believe how quick it was, provided that Iím from one of the highest risk countries.
Hope all the best for Hassan and all of you guys

Hi Kamalkhalil,

Congratulations for the wonderful news you shared with us. Finaly you got approved. Happy for you.You can travel now but also let the council or immi know that you are going out so that they don't book a ceremony for you while away.

Your approval gave me a big hope that mine is not far too. Yours 40 days from application date. Mine is 38 days today from test. I hope I will share the news with you in recent future.

Thanks for the best wish for us.


Enjoy your holiday trip.


Cheers,
Hassan



The wait finally worth it.

You got your test/interview just 11 day's after application?

What location was your test ?

Some locations seem much faster than others.

True. Locations are different.

Imagine Brisbane office. The office with the longest citizenship processing times.

To anyone who has gone through a citizenship interview, what questions specifically did you get asked? I am scheduled for an interview in Brisbane.

For those of you receiving ceremony invitations, do those show up in the immi account messages, or not? I will be travelling over the Christmas holidays (this has been lodged with immi). If the ceremony letter comes from council and not immi I am worried I'll miss the letter, even if I am back in time for the ceremony, as my apt letterbox tends to get broken into.

My questions were only about my criminal history (or lack of ). They just wanted me to state that I had no convictions, no drug offences, etc.

Mine included:
1. Confirmation of personal identity (just need to show passport, drivign license and original birth certificate)
2. Have you travel oversea since you got PR
3. Have you got anythings with police.
Then the case officer took me to the testing room. I did the test within 5 minutes, when done, they gave me a paper showing I passed, and then I went home.

That's it.

I w9nder with the letter you were given showing that you have passed. I was given nothing. The officer said you "you can go, that is what we wanted from you today".

Mine were simple. Identify confirmation only. The only question asked was if I was planning to travel within the next 6 months which I said "No". Then straight to the testroom.

I never thought I had an interview for mine in 2011. But reading what people have been asked, I realise that maybe my 'registering at the desk' for the test, was the equivalent of an 'interview '.

My wife will be happier now, for hers next year.
