Eligibility date: 15 Feb 2020
Application date: 15 Feb 2020
Application Status: Received
City: Brisbane

Still waiting...

Good luck to everyone

Australian Citizenship Rules

Hi Members,

I am a silent observer of this thread. I am on 189 PR, came to Australia in Mar-2017 on PR and since then I am here in Australia only. I do have few questions regarding citizenship test. I would be thankful to you if you can reply:-

1. When can I apply for citizenship? - I believe in Mar-2021.
2. Does my 5 year old son also need to wait for his citizenship until I become a citizen? Since I need to wait for the test and the tests are on hold because of Covid-19. He also came in Australia in Mar-17.
3. I just read on Home affairs website "Citizenship tests are held at departmental offices and at some regional locations by officers of Services Australia​." Which are these centres where they have started conducting the tests?
4. Is there any specific city or centre in Australia where I can get the early dates for the test? However, I live in Canberra. Should I choose Canberra or Sydney or any other regional town to get the early timeslot for the test.

Kindly reply.

Regards
John

Updates

Applying for citizenship
New applications for Australian citizenship are being accepted.
Processing continues on all applications for Australian citizenship that have already been lodged with the Department.
In-person citizenship interviews and citizenship tests have recommenced in Western Australia only from 6 July 2020. Eligible individuals will be contacted and invited to attend a citizenship interview or test. There is no need to contact the Department about your citizenship interview or test.
We will gradually restart interviews and citizenship tests in other states and territories when it is safe to do so.

It is good to see some signs of movement. Despite having applied in March 2018, and having been what I would have thought to be a particularly straightforward case, I am still waiting for my ceremony - so it looks like I was just particularly unlucky in this lottery. But hopefully this long journey will be over soon.
