Citizenship test invitation received

Hi Everyone,
I've received invitation to sit for citizenship. Very happy about it because once I applied I thought I would need to wait for years similar to the PR. But this time it took about one month.
Can anyone tell me if the applicant passes the test, how long would it take for the applicant to be invited to the citizenship ceremony?
Thanks

It often depends on which council area.

Where did you take the test? And which council area are you in?

I received my paper letter 2.5 weeks after approval.

The letter doesn't include any particularly useful information and it is not required for anything, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. if you are approved, that's all that matters.

Approval after the test is usually within 30 days (sometimes hours).

Approval to ceremony timelines are published by IMMI, see the below link "From date of approval to ceremony". The date appears to keep growing, it was that 90% completed this in 4 months, now it is up to 7 months. There appears to be a backlog.

Thanks for your reply, i called them last week to ask them where is my letter and they said its just been approved so letter is still in process... i think they will send the letter with the ceremony letter, the only thing which makes me worry is that i only have 12 months to attend the ceremony after online approval... hope they schedule a date with in 12 months...

They won't send the approval letter with the ceremony letter. The approval letter comes from IMMI while the ceremony letter comes from your council.

Honestly, don't worry about the paper approval letter... it has no real purpose. The approval letter says that you should expect a ceremony letter within the next 6 months.

You should definitely get a ceremony within 12 months, as in my link 90% of people get it done in 7 months.

The approval letter will tell you that you should expect a ceremony letter within the next 6 months.
