When you say rural, what part?

We will be looking at either Brisbane or Toowoomba, when the time comes for my wife.

That's a pain for travel. I thought one hour was bad.
They don't have any closer options?

Hi everyone.
Can i ask if anyone has applied for citizenship in 2017 and still waiting for test invitation.
If any ,plz share your timeline cause im still waiting from October 2017 and havent received test invitation yet.
Is there any place to complaint about that long process that ruins all your future plans ,especially when you see it is unfair at all between case and case .
So disappointed of that process.
Opinions appreciated .
Thanks.

This is a great result for you jaydenj, I wish you the best for your upcoming test in October.

On the other hand, it does baffle me, and probably others who have had simple applications in the system since the first half of 2018. This has to be one of THE most inefficient departments in all of government, with no accountability to anyone.

I am sure not how they work to be honest. I did include a lot of documents in my application. All the police checks. This includes AFP and overseas. I just didn't want to take a chance.

Was able to bring my test date forward to 9th of July using the online system.

I still don't know how long the approval takes after the test. I am not holding my breath but I have seen a few cases getting updated with approval the very next day or within a week.

Regardless, it's a very tiring process but the one that we have no control over; Whatsoever.

Pity we are treated as commodities while all we seek is better opportunities but that's how the world works.

Brisbane is ridiculously slow! Not sure if Toowoomba is much better.

Brisbane was good 10 years ago.. Did my Citizenship application to Ceremony in 2 months. But times have changed...

I'll have to check Toowoomba for my wife next year.
