    Citizenship via DESCENT- HOW LONG?- HELP PLEASE!!

    Thank you. This makes sense as it doesn't seem to be a longer process at all.

    Does anyone know if this would be a faster process if done within the UK (offshore citizenship)? Thanks

    Citizenship via DESCENT- HOW LONG?- HELP PLEASE!!

    I'm familiar with the application...I just can't afford to wait 3-6 months without a job and wonder if I could therefore fast track the ceremony? OR can i work after the citizenship test?
  6. I am new to forums so please be patient. My father is an Australian Native and has always resided in Oz. I'm British by birth and on my mother's side. I'm 27 and want to apply for Australian citizenship. It hasn't been straightforward because his name is not currently on my birth certificate but my mother is having my birth certificate re-certified with his name (his has signed a parentage declaration).. this application has just been made. (hoping it doesn't take long). I am traveling to Oz in a few weeks time. I want to then make my Citizenship application there (with new birth certificate) as I want to stay there. My concern is the timeline of the process. I have previously spent a year in Oz on a 1yr working visa. I want to work as soon as I legally can when I return next month but worried it will be ages before the ceremony. Can it be fast tracked? Can I get a work permit in the interim? Is it a bad idea to go there on a 3month holiday visa (I am law abiding and would not work until legally able) when it may take longer to get a ceremony date? Has anyone done it this way?? Any help please!
