Exclamation Citizenship Status Change from "Received" to "Approved" After Interview

Hi to all, how long does it takes for the Immi Account change from "Received" to "Approved" after the interview?

I wonder if I travel overseas for 2 months (for work purposes) after my citizenship interview before Immi account status change from "Received" to "Approved", will this jeopardize my citizenship application?

Thank you in advance

Congratulations for the test.

No one really knows how long, but we know people did mid last year, still waiting for approval.

some get it faster and some are not. it is a luck.

Good luck with the rest of the process

Can take anywhere from a hour to 2 years (2 years is the longest I have heard).

The application cannot be approved while you are out of the country.

Hi deuterreds,

When I went in for my interview and test, the lady assessing my documents asked me if I had overseas travel plans in the coming 6 months. Based on that, I would and have refrained from any international travel until the whole process is complete. Because they cannot tell us when the ceremony date could be; its like asking how long is a piece of string

I didn't want to give the department any (possible) reason/excuse to hold up the processing of my application.

I'm sure you can travel on your PR however, they wouldn't approve your application until you're onshore.

Hope this helps.

Becky

Thank you so much Becky.

Congratulations for the approval. I applied on 3rd May 2019.

Nothing yet and we don't expect it soon, you know how things are.


We have been together with the forum since our temporary visas in 2013/2014. It has been so amazing forum.

How long did your application take from applying to approval? I cant see you signature from my end.

Hope your ceremony will be quick too.
