Appointment Postponed in 2020 and still waiting

Hi

I just wanted to see if anyone else is having the same issue as my wife and I are.

We applied in November 2019 for Citizenship and in February 2020 we received our letters for Appointment to sit the citizenship tests for the 3rd week in April 2020 (We are in Victoria). However, Covid hit and our appointment was postponed and we are now 11 January 2021 and haven't received any information from the department about the rescheduling of our appointment since the email to postpone.

Just wanted to know if others out there are having the same issue and possibly found a way to get an appointment as new applications are being processed apparently.

Summary:
Applied for Citizenship in November 2019
Accepted in February 2020
Appointment set mid-April 2020
Appointment postponed beginning-April 2020
Reschedule .... still waiting for correspondence

Dario

I know of few friends in VIC that got test appointments but was postponed due to Covid. They have not heard anything after that and its been over 9 months.

Question Maiden or Married name for citizenship application?

Hi Guys,

I am hoping you can help me determine which name to use on my citizenship application. I have scoured the internet but I am having trouble finding the answer. Ideally I would like to apply using my married name.

My current UK passport and Aus PR visa are in my maiden name.

I got married in Aus in 2018, and updated my driving licence, bank details and bills to my married name.

Can I apply using my married name without issue, by providing my marriage certificate and all of my ID documents (which are a mix of my maiden and married name)?

Or does my citizenship application name need to match my current visa? The main issue I have is the evidence of identity in the community - everyone I can approach to complete this knows me as my married name.....

Thank you in advance for your help, and wishing you speedy processing times for your applications

My wife lodged her application, (In Melbourne) 12th December 2019. Haven't heard a peep out of anybody about it yet !
Does anybody know whether it is possible to move application processing to another city/State ?

Thanks, Akya!
