Hi there I have a question in regards to my citizenship application.
I recently got my partner visa 801 approval 25 jun 2020.
I came to Australia in student visas during 2008 and have gone through a lot but finally got my PR approved.
Did you guys think I need to wait till they send invitation for citizenship application or is it ok for me to start preparing for further documents.
Please need advice on this
Thank you

You cannot do anything on the application until at least 25 June 2021.

I am pretty sure that they do NOT send you an invitation to apply for Citizenship. You need to do that yourself sometime after 25 Jun 2021, assuming you have spent 9 months+ in Australia, in the 12 months immediately before the date you apply.

And of course assuming you have had a valid visa (visas) for the 4 years prior to that date with at least 3 years actually in the country.

We started to do my wifes application early, but soon realised it was a waste of time.

You can't apply until 25 June 2021, 12 months after getting PR.

They then look back 4 years, so 24 June 2017. Anything before that is not relevant.

You have been here since March 2017? The full 4 years required.
