    Yes, great. I was just thinking if someone developed a duplicate software (which looks similar) and tried to promote it through using false means.

    Hi Dreaming_when I have no idea if this legitimate, but I would say it seems legitimate. No harm in proceeding. All you've got to study for the test and keep documents ready apart from installing the App. THe only risk is that the app could be a malware. Its best to maybe confirm by calling DOHA. Please let us know how you went.

    Interesting. This is the first case of someone from NT who got a test invite(albeit cancelled) that I know of. Please share your timeline and location. I'm sure test/interview, if postponed, shouldn't take longer. This is great news that people from outside WA have at least been given a test date.

    https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship It started in WA on 6th July 2020. Rest all other states are waiting. I believe within 2 weeks, some states/territories should be joining WA. Definitely not Victoria though.

    Hello Elderberry, Of course, it is your choice whether or not to sign the petition or not. BTW, I'm different to IndianinOz, so I'm not the one who posted the change.org link. But please see my above post. I agree that we were in abnormal times, and until 30th June, no one posted a petition. But now, in Australia especially, everything is pretty much back to normal(except Victoria).

    Hello all, We've just heard last night here in Queensland that the state is opening its borders to people from all states(barring Victoria) from 10th July. And from 3rd of July i.e. Friday, gathering of up to 100 people is allowed depending upon the size of the premises. Until 2nd July this is 20 people. Soon it is coming to point where it is being impossible to digest the fact that citizenship test/interviews are on hold. And even worse is the fact that we don't know when they're going to commence. This is a one on one gathering and not a public gathering anyways. Citizenship ceremony is a public gathering, but even that has now been allowed by the immigration department subject to state wise restrictions. If Citizenship ceremony has been allowed statewise, why is test/interview still being kept on hold just because of one state(Victoria). Even in Victoria, where I believe a gathering of 5 is allowed, it is beyond explanation as to why a one on one activity is not being permitted.

    Oh OK. Maybe this is true for big cities. Where I'm based in Mackay, government staff are still working from office. Centrelink is working.

    Why is face to face interview impracticable now? I understand they need a 1.5 metre distance. Many centrelink offies have partition put in where this distance is met and still the officer can speak with the person. I can understand cancellation of ceremonies where over 100 people usually gather. But interview/test, you just need 2 people at distance of 1.5 metres from each other which is very easy to achieve.

    Does this mean that they will until COVID restrictions cease to resume test/interview? If so, then we are at least 4-6 months away. I actually heard/read somewhere that they're trying to get a method that works even in the COVID restrictions which sounded encouraging. Now I'm confused.

    Well there some like me who applied in December 19 and haven't had a test invite. Keep fingers crossed. Approval should be right around the corner for you.

    We have had a son born recently. As you can see from my signature, me and my wife applied for citizenship in December 2019. So far there hasn't been any update. We wish to fly to your home country once the COVID issue is sorted out, hopefully by September. Just checking about what are the norms for travel to home country once you have applied citizenship. We usually go for 1 month each year. But this time, with the bub, it will be a longer visit. Say 2-3 months. Then early next year, we may have to travel again as we have a close wedding. This may be another 2 months. My wife is on her maternity leave, so it makes travel easy for us as I can work on the computer. Hence, the longer visits. 2 travels of 2-3 months each in a space of 9-12 months, is it too much? Of course, these are just trips with our permanent residence and jobs/work being based in Australia. Could this affect citizenship by any chance? I understand for the test/interview we usually need to be in Australia. Also, they don't approve the application while we are overseas. And for citizenship ceremony(even for the online one), we need to be in Australia.

    We have had a new born recently too. We have applied for Birth certificate. Once I get it, can I use my immi account to apply for Evidence of Citizenship also? I applied my and my wife's citizenship by conferral through this account also.

    I understand they're not holding interview tests until about 20th August 2020 But are they issuing invites for tests? Or is it all put on all hold??

    Thanks for getting back to the forum. The result seems discouraging unfortunately. It seems now wait is the only answer for you. If your application crosses 12 months or 15 months, you may try contacting a MP in Canberra who deals with delayed applications. I don't know the definition of delayed. It could well be 21 months from application from approval.

    Are you waiting for the test invitation or ceremony invitation? I remember you mentioning you got approved in Sept 2019?
