    Absolutely not. As long as you meet the legal criteria for citizenship and are a person of good character (police checks) then there is no reason for anything else to delay citizenship. People lose jobs life happens and the rest of the stuff you mentioned about above will have zero impact on the application. My company recently folded resulting in everyone losing their jobs. So I will have to think about doing an application for Newstart

    Hi guys Yesterday I received a letter advising that my citizenship application has now been approved! Now for the ceremony waiting game. My case officer told me that we should have it between 3-6 months.

    No character requirements are very much part of the process - these are if not one of the most important requirements. They do the AFP clearance themselves. If they require police clearance from another country (like I did) they will request and you will have to do that paperwork and organise it yourself. Biometrics they do internally if required.

    The above process you have mentioned is correct. There are no health assessments for citizenship process, as you are a permanent resident. They do the AFP check in the background. Do the above process and wait. If they require any further info of you then they will request it. Process is very straightforward.

    Hey mate, Sorry for late reply. I am literally just back from an overseas business trip and haven’t been active on here whilst I was away. No haven’t received my approval yet, hopefully I should receive it soon. I’ll keep you posted. I think for my case the only thing that could delay is only an AFP police clearance, as they asked for my British police clearance 2-3 weeks after I lodged my application (and before doing test). I took it to the interview and asked if they required anymore documents from my side, they said no they had everything that they need. So really I suspect I will hear soon. My wife does her test this Tuesday. Happy Australia Day to everyone Cheers

    Bear in mind Indianinoz that a system is only as good as the information that has been put in to it. Each case officer will have their own ways of doing things. What one C/O does may be different from the next one. It was the same for my PR visa process- members on the PR visa thread on this site were reporting different things for the same visa. For me that was the skilled independent 189 visa

    Thanks Indianinoz Yes I received an email notification in my immi account but I also received an email (for my test invite) It was this email that made me check my immi account. I received a couple of texts messages a few days before my test to remind me that it was close. Received another text yesterday (day before test) as a final reminder.

    Just completed the test. 100% pass Can’t believe how quick the whole process was. Only took like 20 mins for the whole thing. Hoping the ceremony won’t take long Good luck to anyone else still waiting to do theirs.

    If that’s the case, I’ll let immigration know as I fly out to Czech Republic for work end of next week for a week. I will let them know when I’m in for my test I have my test next Thursday

    Thanks Naviozz! Excited as I’m happy my application is moving through the system and not sitting in limbo. How do you go about re-scheduling the appointment? Are you located in Perth too? Thanks
