Applied in Brisbane , conferral application
eligible 14 Jan 2019
Submitted 14 Dec 2019
Test / interview initially scheduled for 6/4/2020
Rescheduled to 11/2/2020 passed test/interview
Approved online 25/3/20 , approval letter followed a week later,

Suspect delay in approval is due to them checking my police record as I had numerous drink driving offences in my uni days , but I noted them on my application. Probably when there is an additional element to your application observed during interview ,you are put into a more in depth review queue. Hence no instant approval.

Now Awaiting ceremony , hoping for virtual process


Whole process 3 months in total , Good luck to all.
Congratulations.

I was about to say that gives us hope, my wife applied in February, (also Brisbane) but, then I remembered we have to wait for the test, which will no doubt be delayed until the virus situation is over.

I guess that leaves their staff time to work on finalising video ceremonies, for those who already passed the test.

Brisbane has been moving pretty quickly , the minister has put out a statement not sure if you read it , i am sure if we all behave we will see social distancing restrictions been lifted pretty soon and resources been reallocated to tests and interviews. Takes some patience you guys will be fine ,google the below

I read today that the PM has said that the social distancing restrictions won't be lifted anytime soon, but we shall see. Let's see how well behaved people are over the Easter long weekend. They don't want to cancel them too soon and risk the cases increase. I have read an article that suggested that they may not be lifted until 4 weeks after the last case, who really knows what will happen...

I heard of someone who was waiting for a test today got an email from immigration saying that the test has put on hold until further notice (that was with a new test date of August, the original one was late March which had gotten cancelled about 1 or 2 weeks ago I think).

It stopped. I have watched the Immigration minister Alan Tudge Interview and he said it was halted due to the virus. No test no processing

For the 85,000 who have taken the test, and passed:
The Government will hold online citizenship ceremonies via secure video link, to enable people to continue to become Australian citizens during the coronavirus crisis.

Applications for Australian citizenship are still able to be accepted during this period, though citizenship interviews and testing have been put on hold.

Additional resources will be deployed to conduct testing and interviews as soon as social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 ease.

You could try your travel itinerary OR e-ticket. If you used your frequent flyer back them, they may still keep records.

If you don't have the above, just explain your situation to them. They will be able to guide you with alternatives or possibly waive this request.
