    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2018-2019

    There's quite a few benefits but it depends on your circumstances, for example the new HomeBuilder grant, voting, government jobs and if you need to leave the country for an emergency you don't need to worry about your PR travel authority expiring. As this is a service paid for I do think its incumbent on the government to find alternate solutions which they have with the ceremonies.

    All done for us too. Email received on Monday asking if we were interested in a virtual ceremony, booked in for Thursday (Brisbane City Council) and over and done with in 5 minutes. Now just need to wait for the certificate.

    Did you ask whether they're doing virtual ceremonies?

    Mine was approved on Jan 9th, I didn't have an invite before but have requested a virtual. Then I spoke to them in January they said there was about a 4-5 month lead time. Its an issue for us as our PR travel authority ran out last week.

    Yep, just waiting for my invite now (since mid-January).

    Not yet (my council is Brisbane City), no compelling reason given.

    If either you or your partner are permanent residents your bub will automatically be eligible for Australian citizenship, before your application.

    Brisbane was around 4 - 6 months previously from approval to ceremony as of January.

    I would strongly prefer not to spend $1k plus for the sake of what could be a few weeks. Plus even if it takes weeks that's an issue work wise if I have to stay out of the country until its granted.

    Good news on the online ceremonies, common sense. We were going to be in limbo otherwise if an emergency should arise once, our travel authority runs out soon.
