It is not "pathetic" for the government to protect its own employees, they owe them a duty care to ensure that they are not unnecessarily exposed. It is the lackadaisical attitude to the Pandemic that has seen such a spike in numbers in Victoria.

I know this is not the form to discuss about lockdown. Lockdown is not a strategy... virus will never go away until a vaccine is found which we don’t know when. Until then every thing should be moved on in a controlled way (not just put on hold)... for most, holding citizenship appointments might not be important but for those applicants it is. I think this thread is for those applicants not others..

The Lockdowns are a strategy. To reduce contact between people, to reduce the numbers of infections.

To choose to put Home Affairs staff, and others, at risk for something that is not vital, is not a great idea.

They are discussing options to try to find a way, similar to the online ceremonies.

I hope they can do that, so that my wife can do her test etc.

We would actually rather wait, than risk mixing with more people than needed, and increase transmission risks.

Most people can survive in Australia as PR.

Some good news : WA has started with testing and soon it will be other states as well. Hang in there..

Yesterday update from Home affairs

"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."
