    This is real quick. I'm from Mackay region and this is inspiring.

    Urgent situation - advice required please

    Thanks for your reply. Well, we ourselves can manage if its an issue from the immigration point of view. I guess that is what we will do until someone from our home country can come.

    Thanks MaggieMay24. That solves most of my questions. So if a child is born overseas to parents who weren't citizens(were PR when the child was born) when the child was born but became citizens soon after, can the child apply for citizenship by descent? Also, is citizenship by descent approved easily or do they look at many other things?

    Thanks! Do you mean if we have citizenship and go overseas for delivery, the child automatically gets Aussie citizenship but if we don't have citizenship(just have PR) and go overseas for delivery, the child gets my home country's citizenship? Is this correct?

    Is there a separate thread for Australian Citizenship timeline 2019-20? 2019-20 financial year already started on July 1 this year, so just wondering. Thanks!

    Thanks to both of you. It probably makes sense to continue living in Australia based on your comments then and only go to the home country for a small vacation, if need be. Considering that our long term idea is to live in Australia. Thanks again!
  7. We are completing our 4 years on 31st December 2019 and eligible to apply for citizenship on that date. My wife is 2 months pregnant and is unable to manage the stress of everything at the moment. She has been advised by doctor to either call our mother from our home country(which is not possible due to other reasons) or go to our home country for a few months so that she can rest. We are planning to go to our home country for 2-3 months. Now, depending upon medical advice(I'm not sure if she can fly during her 5th/6th month as that depends on her health), it could be that we are unable to fly back to Australia until the delivery or until the baby is 3 months old. This could potentially mean that we are stuck up in our home country for about 8-9 months. Questions: a) If we are in our home country(not Australia) on 31st December 2019, can we apply for citizenship from that country? Note that I'm aware of the 9 month rule in the 4th year to obtain citizenship. We will make sure we complete 9 months stay. And first 3 years, we have been in Australia for about 33 months of the 36 months(just 1 month vacation per year) b) Will it create any problems for our citizenship? Could our citizenship be denied due to this? We will continue to pay rent for our home here and my wife's job will be on 'maternity leave' which she will resume once we are back and baby is born and about 6 months old. I simply take contract work(accounting), so possibly can get contract work on the computer. c) If not denied, do you think it could be delayed? Worst case, we should be back in 8-9 months. d) Is there an official channel for communication with the Australian Government or Immigration Department to ask whether this would impact our citizenship application?
  8. Does someone need to be in Australia when applying for citizenship i.e. when 4 years of stay are completed? What if the couple travels to home country for about 6-8 months during this time(journey beginning before or just after citizenship application)? Before this travel, the person has been continuously residing in Australia(with just 1 month holidays to home country once a year). After this 6-8 month travel, the intention is continue stay in Australia forever. One of the members of the couple has a full time job(say on maternity break when travelling to home country) whereas the other person is into business. They will keeping their permanent home(rental home) as they wish to come back to the same home. Can this delay citizenship or can citizenship be denied for any reason in such circumstance?

    After applying for Citizenship, can I leave Australia?

    I heard that they're routing the new applications through the new system which is quicker whereas the ones in 2017 and early 2018 are still being processed by the old system which is slower. The process remains the same, only the processing time has reduced. This is what I read at a few places.

    Thanks, OK whenever the new system started, is it substantially quicker? Say for example someone who will apply in 2019 soon, is it reasonable to expect that there are good chances the application will be approved and ceremony hosted within 12 months? Of course, no guarantee but expected timeline is what I'm after.

    For people who have applied post June 2018, what is the average citizenship processing time? I heard ones from July 2018(or around that time) are going under the new system. Is this true?

    Thanks, it shows I can apply only when 4 years have been completed from first date of entry. So need to wait for a few months. Thanks

    Hello, Say for example I made my first entry on 1st January 2016. Now, I made trips out of Australia for about a month each year. Till date, I have made 4 trips out of Australia of about 120 days in total. Quote from Citizenship laws: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Permanent Residents - After 1 July 2007 If you obtain your permanent residence after 1 July 2007, you will need to meet the following requirements to become an Australian citizen: You have lived lawfully in Australia for at least 4 years; and You have lived in Australia for at least 12 months as a permanent resident Note that if you have spent more than 12 months in the last 4 years outside Australia or 3 months in the last 12 outside Australia, you will no longer meet the residence requirements for citizenship. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now in my case, although I complete 4 years on 1st Jan 2020, I do complete 3 years and 9 months of stay on 1st Oct 2019. Note that a minimum of 9 months of residence is completed in the last year on 1st Oct 2019 assuming I did not leave Australia in the last year. Is it possible to apply for citizenship on 1st Oct 2019 rather than wait for 1st Jan 2020 as my criteria for stay/citizenship is completed?
