I just got an email from home affairs. They've cancelled our ceremony until further notice . I guess cause of the corona spreading. I hope they'll introduce a virtual pledge so we can get our certificate. Despite the fact that we're no longer be able to travel in this situation.

Update

Hey guys,
So here's my timelines

Citizenship application date : 10th Dec 2019
Interview/Test Date received date : 13th Mar 2020
Interview/Test Date : 18th May 2020

Now with this COVID-19 locked down etc.. not sure what'll be happening to my test date..

Also a question for you guys please. I had to redo my translation of my documents as the ones that I had attached originally to the application were done from my local country. I now have the these translated by NAATI certified translator. Should I be attaching them to the application now or ok to just take them with me when i go for the interview?

Ta,
K.

I have seen on Facebook that someone that had their test scheduled for the end of March got an email/SMS from Home Affairs saying that it is now rescheduled until August 2020. As your is scheduled for May but they are waiting to see how things go before they contact you to reschedule it ... who knows.

My husband provided us translation that was done overseas and there was no issue at all.

I would attach it to the online application.

My original test and interview date was scheduled for April, but last week I received an sms saying that due to coronavirus, my test date has been changed to August 21st 2020.

Apparently, this does not affect the total time frame on the citizenship process. I was told this over the phone by Home Affairs. I find this odd, as I know people have received their approval within days after the test and interview, and then had their ceremony a few months later. Going by this, I would have maybe had my ceremony by August or even earlier, but maybe I was dreaming...

I'll be applying for my Citizenship on the day of eligibility in early June, however I'm concerned now that the waiting and processing time will grow exponentially due to the Corona virus. If they're cancelling both the tests and ceremonies, won't this cause a clog in the system? As far as I'm aware, you can expect to wait around a year from applying to getting your citizenship, give or take... Will this likely see people waiting 2-3 years now?

edit: Just checked and it's apparently 21-24 months now, what was the estimated processing time in recent months?

A lot of the 'over the phone' from Home Affairs can be contradictory. They also can't control how long local councils take to do the ceremonies

Everything will probably be 'on hold' for as long as it takes now.
