    Lost Citizenship applicants

    sadly not- we got an email 19 months after literally nothing whatsoever from them saying there was an error with our application and to apply again ......fatal error on our part but it took them 19 months to tell us about it sadly so we are back to the start again...... we should be citizens by time 4year RRV runs out maybe ???? or maybe not at this rate x

    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2018-2019

    its the lack of any contact that is a pain in the ass.....almost 20 months and just literally nothing ....no request for info/no emails/no calls just a black hole of nothingness.....saying that we still have 4 months left to get a test/get approved and get a cermony before we go over 24months wait .....after that i go to the press and PM even just to get a test date would be nice ........ if we were complex or were being asked for more info i could understand but just nothing whatsoever .....i will have another whine when we hit 20months on 2/9 and another one at 21 months and so on ........but trust me when we get that magic ticket to go for the test there will be a massive party !

    visa class shouldnt affect citizenship application , when you have done your time as PR you can apply ... we are 189 PR visa to citizenship so very straight forward and still waiting from 1/18 to even sit a test ........

    Lost Citizenship applicants

    sadly our application has everything , i could understand if we were complex or had received requests for more info ..... our application is simplest one they can get ..... but maybe they assume as living here/RRV in place/nothing complex its just been dumped somewhere ...... my work mate applied 1/19 and got test date for 10/19 brisbane city so you can see why we get a bit disheartened/ frustrated at times when it comes thro there will be a party on this forum !

    Lost Citizenship applicants

    we applied 1/18 brisbane city application says 'received' 2/1/18........................ nothing since what so ever we are one of these applications that seems to have just been shelved...... we are almost 20 months now but obv 'still within processing times' whenever we call or email just get same response - WAIT ! and no news is good news they say if not been asked for anything extra then sadly we are just in a long line of applications they say ........ oh and then they add 'we can see your application and everything is in order ...... we are a straight forward UK family of 4 going from PR 189 to citizenship without any issues......living here patiently .......altho everynow and then i like a good moan ..... until we go over the 90% of cases at 24 months extreme timeline for no obv reason they adv not a lot they can do but then go official thro the complaints/ombudsmon service ????? they still have 4 months to get us a test date-approve us and get us thro a ceremony ........ has anyone actually gone over 2 years tho yet ??????

    ok so if thats true that could explain my wait of over 19 months and no test even - we got 'received ' 2/1/18..... i will remain ever patient in the heap of other long waiting applicants .....just a bit jarring when others get approved super quick so one cant help but get paranoid

    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2018-2019

    we are over 19 months now and still nothing , just says 'received' not even done test i have rang and sent emails now etc but always just same answer.... not until go over 24 months are they overly concerned and even then they didnt know what i should do if we get as far as that ....... just wait they say ...... FOI can be triggered anytime

    we are waiting from 2/1/18 Brisbane city application ! we are now beyond 19 months and no test date even.....application just says received ..... i think we may qualify for longest wait at this point on this forum so take comfort in knowing there are other out there waiting even longer for no obvious reason !!! we should probably start a new thread for the lost application bunch lol

    you can call as much as you want and email as much as you want but until go over wait times you will get standard answer of being within processing times..... i have just started to trigger emails etc at 19 months and nothing happened other than 'received' but i expect nothing in return . i have called the hotline and they have looked into my case there and then on the phone to ensure all in order.... they always just say still in processing but as no requests for anything in 19 months that is good news and just have to wait ... they can see my application/file or whatever it is they look at and say ' just wait ' so all a bit fruitless they did advice if we go beyond 24 months from application received date then thats more strange/interesting/not normal and we could trigger formal complaints lodgement ?...... fingers crossed we dont reach that point lol trying to just sit back and wait ........ if no requests for more info then all must be ok is our mantra - altho nothing left to give them at this point ......

    ps its people right to leave the country and return to uk or move to another country of course when they get the passport - in todays global economy i totally get that ... just in case misinterpreted ....... maybe they know this and can see we aint going anywhere so just put us on the shelf lol

    for me i work in healthcare and want to be able to vote , no voting for 5 years now and yet my job is affected by politics all the time so i want to vote - yes there are some who are planning to leave as soon as they get the passport and that hurts people like us who are here to stay and contribute with work and taxes etc etc , for me its closure and not having to worry about travel and RRV and passports and uni fees maybe for kids in the future....saying that i cant believe we would get to 3.5 yrs and need to apply for another RRV but if you are left waiting like us you do tend to worry about how long can this all go on for ..... its nice to finally 'belong' for some people and again that means different things to different people .... my UK neighbour has been here for 30yrs plus and never applied for citizenship i found out the other day -he had to rapidly secure RRV when his parents got sick last year but he is happy not to apply still so each to there own .... my groan is just why our application ?- of course first world problem for all of us at end of day but its hard to sit and see other people sail thro or others leave the country as soon as they get it .... BUT thats the beauty of this forum so that people can share info-tips and good news and bad news and sometime just have a grumble lol

    i wouldnt mind waiting if they would just tell us why or how long .... its the total lack of info we get when we enquire and total lack of nothingness that happens after you apply ........ we havent been asked to provide anything else not that there is anything left to give them lol and we are probably the easiest case type they have as a simple family of 4 from UK with no issues just transferring from PR ..... i suspect 2017 and early 2018 cases perhaps are on the floor in a heap and just hope that at some point they are picked up ... the funny thing is tho by time we do our test /meet with caseworker all our ID forms and photos we sent in will be almost 2 years old at this rate - our kids are changing all the time and passports/driving licences/household bills and all that surely must be all a bit pointless as so old or out of date or even changed from when we put them all in with the application ... must have patience x
