Hey sudeepdai, did you have your appointment today? Fingers crossed they are going ahead!

Hi everyone. I just have a question. I am applying online and for some reason the application form pages jumped from 24 to 32. I was just wondering whether this has happened to anyone?

I have reviewed my application, answered all the questions and I just don't see why it skips the pages. Please anyone help..

I haven't submitted the application yet as I am still gathering documents to attach.

Citizenship test cancelled

Hi,
My citizenship test was supposed to be on 12 January in Newcastle but today I got appointment cancellation email that tests between 12 January- 1 February have been cancelled.
I donít know why they cancelled tests in Newcastle where we donít have any Covid cases nor any Covid positive visited here. Even dance floor are open at clubs and everything is normal here. Why they donít cancel cricket today in Sydney where 10000 people are going to Sydney Cricket Ground. Itís totally unfair.

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

Question Married or maiden name for citizenship?

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

That is such a long wait and you must be very frustrated! Although not in the same situation but I would suggest contacting the department and get an update if you cannot find any infomation online.

2) The evidence to support your the applicants claim

Did anyone get this after their application was submitted or I have to supply this evidences?

P.S: My child who was mentioned in my application was born here to my Aussie wife, hence, he is an Australian by default.
Hi. I got the exact 'action message' for my application. As for
1.My child was born here. I attached the Aus birth certificate and Aus passport, but the message still shows. I also attached the child's other overseas passport & birth certificate, since mentioned in the application that the child is dual.
2.I have no idea what other evidence is needed. I have attatched 'other documents' to prove my citizenship, current address etc. But the message is still there.

Hoping someone who got the same error will help us out. Otherwise I'll just wait and see what documents the case officer will requestnwhen they look at my application. I just can't see what I haven't uploaded that's required.

Australian Citizenship 2020 Applications

Hi everyone,

I need an advice.

I have an appointment for my citizenship application in a few weeks' time.. The appointment letter indicated that I am to bring the passport which I first arrived in Australia.

The issue is it was over 20 years ago and I have since lost that passport.

I like to know if anyone has the same experience and if that impact their citizenship application?
