    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2018-2019

    Congratulations. I’m sorry you had to wait so long but it is somewhat comforting to hear that I wasn’t the only one. I applied 21 April 2018, I’ve now finally got approval but no ceremony date yet. It’s been frustrating to see people both apply and be approved while I’ve heard nothing. It seems like a strange way they do it.. I don’t know why it’s not just done in order. I feel like early 2018 was the worst time to apply! Anyway, we’ve got it now so it doesn’t matter congrats!

    Yep I totally agree. 21 months totally unacceptable. They have approved now. The Brisbane office called me and said they were waiting for a document and it was out of their hands but I basically think it slipped through the net and they hadn’t noticed I was still waiting!! Very frustrating because I had to spend $400 on a residents return visa to go back to the UK at Xmas. Hopefully get my ceremony soon so I can get my passport. I applied before my twins were born... they’re now 18 months and they got dual citizenship at 4 months old!! Was much easier for them!’

    Oh sorry I just sent a request to the feedback people, who emailed me to tell me to go away!! Haha!! That was this morning and I’ve just had a phone call from my local office to say they approved my citizenship and sorry about the delay!! Finally! I feel like they lost it or something! Now to wait for my letter about ceremony. It only (?!) took 20 months to approval!!!!!

    Thank you. I submitted a request and they basically said go away, it’s within time frame! So frustrating when people who applied over a year later are getting there’s through. I’ve sat the teat but am yet to receive anymore communication

    I applied in April 2018, can anyone remember how I complain/enquire? I have seen someone talking about it on here a while ago

    It's frustrating to see people applying this year and already having been approved. I don't understand why they're not just processed in order. I thought mine was a pretty straight forward case. Great that you've been approved. When's your ceremony?

    That's great. Wondering if I need to do the same. I might give it a go. I applied at Brisbane City Council in April 2018, Test June 2019 and haven't heard a thing Just had to pay $410 for a residents return visa as I am going back to the UK and my PR has expired

    Congrats, you’re doing better than me. I applied To Brisbane City Council in April 2018, test June 2019, still awaiting approval I guess I’m not really in a rush, my rush was to submit the application before I had my twins (because let’s face it, I’ll never get time to do anything ever! Haha) but it’s just annoying now

    Yes I’m waiting for Brisbane. Applied April 2018 and took test June 2019. How do you know when the ceremonies are?

    I realise I have to get a RRV to leave the country now my PR has expired but I just hoped my citizenship would be through. Applied for citizenship April 2018

    Damn, I was hoping my citizenship would be through before December. I guess the problem then is that I have to apply for the passport as well. I might give it until the end of September and apply for the RRV

    My PR has expired and we are going overseas on 18th Dec. I have sat my test (beginning of June) and heard nothing. Should I be apply for the visa to leave the country (I think it’s a 155 visa)? How long do they take to process that?

    Just wondering how long, roughly, people waited from test/interview to ceremony and then passport. I have my test in Brisbane on 6 June but my PR expires in August. I’ve called and it basically doesn’t matter about renewing unless I am leaving the country, which I am in December. However it can take 2 months to get the PR renewal (entering back to Australia) visa thing.. 158 visa I think she said
