    Not surprising. Cairns is the only regional town in Queensland and non capital town in Australia to have a DOHA office. Other regional towns, like mine(Mackay), all rely on Centrelink for test/interview.

    Finally, congratulations GUS. Best to update your signature on this forum too. How did you receive the invite? Email? From which email address? Is there a way to pre pone the test?

    Hello, You are one of the oldest applicants. Did you get a invitation for test just before COVID for March/April but got cancelled? Or are you yet to hear back anything at all? The good news is that tests have begun in regional Queensland. I think Kawana Waters is your nearest Services Australia office which conducts tests/interviews. People who have gone over 12 months and are from Regional Australia have had luck emailing regional.citizenship.qld@homeaffairs.gov.au. Some of them had heard back that they're just waiting for tests to commence. Maybe you can try contacting this email address giving your citizenship application details and asking where your application is at? Other than FOI, this is the only other option I believe that has actually worked for people. Please keep us updated as to how you go.

    Great, I'm from Mackay too. What is your timeline if I may ask? Would be good to meet up too if you're up for it.

    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.
