    Passport application.

    I was told by the post office that I will receive my passport in about 3 weeks. So 5 days is too short a time to be expecting a response. Also when you login to the Australian Passport application site where you filled out the form, you can see the status of your application. It will change to lodged once you go to the post office and submit the application and then will change to Under Assessment and then finally to Issued.

    Citizenship application as a family

    We did the same. Same account but two separate applications for me and my wife. I added my daughter to my application. There is a section to add the application reference number of everyone who want to attend ceremony together or something like that.

    Documents for citizenship application

    When you fill out the citizenship form with all the required information, the document checklist at the end of it will let you know what you need. Going by what you have said, I don't think you need overseas police clearance.

    Primary School Admissions

    Well the contract wasn't having too much information but spoke to them and found that I will only be losing my acceptance fee if I pulled out. That is fine with me as it is not too much.

    Primary School Admissions

    Thanks everyone for the advice. We are citizens and the Public school is right across the road from our house, so we are right in the area for receiving the offer. Not sure about the contract with the private school as the only thing it mentions is that when we return the form we enter into a contract and there will be a $100 acceptance fees which is non-refundable. They don't mention anything else. Probably something to ask them before I drop of my acceptance. The Public school offers will start coming in only in August.

    Primary School Admissions

    Hello All, We had applied for two primary schools for my daughter who will be starting in 2022. One is a Public school close to our home and other is a private one. We got our offer from the private school already but are still waiting on the offer from the Public school. The private school want us to accept the offer by 4th of June and I don't think we will hear back from the pubic school by then. So can we just accept the offer and then later decide not to go there? There isn't much difference between the two schools but we just wanted an option. We are new to Australia and this is our first child, so not sure about how things are. Any information will be helpful. Thanks.

    Please go and look in the VFS Australia website. It provides all the necessary information. Just some basic googling would have helped.

    Application approved for me in February 2021 and in December 2020 for my wife. West Torrens is the council and Thebarton Community Center was the location.

    So finished my Ceremony yesterday in Adelaide. Pretty low key gathering. Just got our certificates handed over at the registration table and then a speech by the Mayor, followed by Pledge and the National Anthem. Was over in like 30 minutes. Just got to take pictures with the Mayor. Anyways it is over now finally. Best of luck to everyone who are waiting.

    One major thing about Form 1195 is that apart from being a citizen and working in the jobs mentioned, they need to know the applicant at least for a year. People at least I spoke with here were very scared signing it unless they actually knew me for that period of time. The identity declaration was the reason my application dragged on for a bit.

    It was an email from immi site for both of us on the same day. Probably the council is the difference. You might get yours soon as well.

    Strange. I got approved in 2 weeks after the test and my wife got hers approved in 3 days after the test.

    I passed my test on 27th of January 2021 and my wife did on December 12th 2020 in Adelaide. Both of us received our Ceremony invites this morning for the 18th of March. It is a physical ceremony and not an online one. We began the process in July of 2020, so it has been fairly quick so no complaints here. Wish others receive their approvals and invites soon.
