    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    To be fair, the only reason I ever wanted citizenship was to take up new employment with a federal dept here, I have now accepted a position within the UK. I have my daughter who is staying and we have decided to not sell our Aussie home for her to stay in. a RRV is valid for 5 years, if it expires and I/We are not permitted to return so be it. I know it sounds callous but I dont like living with the what if in life .... we are not going for a few months yet so we will see.

    Where are you based? Waiting for citizenship shouldnt affect your life in Australia. People should relax enjoy your life and when it happens it happens. I am based in Sydney NSW, it is not affecting my life, I have accepted a new role in the UK so will be returning in 2019. I am of the stance, I get citizenship great if I do not, not actually a loss. in the fact I am a UK passport holder etc, I can always get a 5 year RRV.

    I agree, that Immigration are at fault, not the particular employee's, sadly they suffer for the incompetence of the Federal government, I think they have enough grief without people calling up harassing them lol.

    no, not at all, I have lived here in Australia, for 7 years now, and work is the reason I am going home. admittedly I should of done citizenship years ago, never got around to it... I won't feel regret it is just a chapter of life. I have never had issues with the dark nights in the UK growing up there as a kid your used to it,

    maybe you should do some research http://www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/community/community-services/citizenship https://www.thehills.nsw.gov.au/Services/Our-Community/Citizenship-Ceremonies http://www.whitehorse.vic.gov.au/Australian-Citizenship-Ceremonies.html http://www.communityservices.act.gov.au/multicultural/services/australian-citizenship-ceremonies/schedule-of-australian-citizenship-ceremonies That was a quick search and local councils put dates on the websites.

    CO asking for Irish electrical trade qualification

    Hi Rebus. I would suggest that you contact the college or trade that issued the certificate and ask for the transcript. basically outlining what was studied etc. you could even ask if they would accept the modules and codes etc ... I assume you provided these for the TRA. They will give the transcript for you to pass on to the CO, it might need to be signed by a JP. Some links below that could help. https://safeelectric.ie/help-advice/completion-certificates/ http://www.qqi.ie/Articles/Pages/NARIC-Ireland.aspx https://qhelp.qqi.ie/learners/lost-certificate/ http://www.dit.ie/electricalengineering/apprenticeships/theelectricalapprenticeship/

    TO be fair, you will have sufficient proof, ie Birth certificate, Driving licence, bank card, rent agreement/Mortgage agreement, medicare card etc. ... I wouldn't worry too much, Citizenship is not dependant on you having a valid UK passport.

    go on https://www.gov.uk/overseas-passports and do the passport there, it is an online application its very simple to do now ... if your facial features have not changed much take a picture on a plain white background and upload it ... I did it a few months back took literally, 3 weeks, and I had a new passport back. You will just then uploaded a change of address/passport details to the immigration.
