Proposed Overseas Trave-Citizenship Application

When doing the Citizenship application, if you don't advise of any possible overseas travel and then wish to go overseas, will that big problems down the track ?

The applicants mother has terminal cancer, she can not travel yet due COVID and it is also a "high-ish risk" country for COVID. If possible and her mum is still with us, she will likely do a 2 week trip when can, probably early in 2021. We have no idea of dates, just will probably leave for 2 week during the process.
Is it OK to just leave it as not intending at this stage as we have no idea, and can it be adjusted later if she does visit her mum.?

Does saying there is some chance of 2 weeks travel delay things?

If and when dates are known for next year, can you just inform Immigration and apply for a Re-Entry 'permit' ?

Thx helpful folks.

Form 1300t says:
"Part K – Proposed overseas travel – It is important that you
notify the Department of any proposed overseas travel while
your application is being processed."

Hi John,

So sorry to hear that the applicant's mother is unwell.

Regarding the proposed travel, you can list the dates you have in mind (i.e. Jan 2021) and if she is unable to travel or you decide to extend your stay, you could always notify the Department so they don't send out a Citizenship test appointment during the time you are away. I have done that myself and they only asked me to attach a copy of my itinerary and any other evidence I had of my travel arrangements.

Regarding the re-entry permit, when is the travel validity of her PR expiring? If she will be traveling back into Australia beyond the 5-year travel period, she will need to apply for a Resident Return Visa.

Hope this helps

Thanks Siham for the explanation.

We will leave it blank as there is so much up in the air, still more than a year left on the PR.
