From reports they just held up their passport for the camera for ID. Took about 10mins in total.

They were not told the exact date of the video call as they are required to confirm first.

In the email, also they mentioned the certificate will be posted with registered post within 3 weeks.


Hope our video ceremony is on the way,


Hassan

Thanks Hassan for sharing an update. Could you indicate approval timelines for your friends and yourself? I am in Brisbane city council and have been approved since Dec 2019.

Hi Polo,

Both friends and I are from Brisbane.

My timeline

Application May 2019.
Test done on October 2019.
Approval Early December 2019.

Friends:
Both application: November 2017.
Both Test June 2018
No body knows the approval date. They never got approval letter (never updated their addresses after moving) and never had immiaccounts. Weird!!!!!

one invited ceremony in September 2019. Missed the invitation letter,
again invited in January, missed the invitation letter.
This time they are invited for the virtual ceremony. They accepted and ready for the ceremony.

Thanks mate. Hopefully we will get the invitation soon - its clear the people organisig the ceremonies are not consistent with their timelines & processes. I've seen people receiving their approvals this year, well after new year and they've received their ceremonies invitation already yet here we are waiting since last year. There are others, they're waiting since Sep and Oct 2018 to receive their ceremony invitation.

My friends replied to the Virtual ceremony with "Yes' on Thursday last week.

They received virtual ceremony appointment on Friend slated for tomorrow 28th April.

It is so quick once you are selected for the virtual ceremony.

Hi Polo,

I haven’t heard anything yet.

What is that email? The email inviting the ppl for the virtual comes from HA and starts with [email protected] something like that and is from HomeAffairs ilI am sure.


Please let me know in detail about the Qld one you said about.


Hassan

Virtual.Citz.Ceremony

Virtual.Ceremony.QLD

Let me know if you receive an invite. Looks like they are focusing on VIC & NSW applicants than QLD

Second email I've shared is working. You get an auto response when you send an email. I suggest shoot one - worth a shot!
