    UK- AUS freedom of travel

    It smells very much like a "stick with this Brexit idea and look at all this great stuff we will <most likely not> be able to do for you" There's so much of that about in British politics at the minute, and so far at least it's been a completely one-sided exchange. One UK MP saying something she wants to do, with no official reply or any confirmation from the other side.

    It's hard not to for sure. I'm very grateful our citizenship apps have gone quite quickly so far.

    True, especially right now, it'd be very one-sided.

    UK- AUS freedom of travel

    This caught my eye recently for sure. On a totally selfish level, after slogging through the visa system here as a Brit I kind of hope it doesn't happen but it's the consequences that make me question the feasibility of it. Scott Morrison's comments on it seem pretty clear, it's unlikely his government would ever consider a new zealand type agreement with any other country. The scale of consequences on both countries of complete freedom of travel just make it seem highly unlikely to me. The number of out-there headlines in the UK around this messy time which is Brexit make it hard to believe anything that comes out of UK parliament in the news!

    I see where you are coming from. Certainly an interesting read. Further down in the audit though they talk about the 'skilled' and 'family' streams presenting similar low-complexity (or 'business as usual'). It mentions that the low complexity is due to previous visa applications providing readily available records and checks on the applicant, which makes sense. The 'family stream' applicants in the audit are current visa holders for citizenship by conferral, so their original PR application would have required similar history, health and character checks as a primary skilled visa holder. I can't see anywhere where it mentions a different measure of processing time between 'skilled' and 'family' streams. The other remaining stream ('Humanitarian') is obviously an outlier, with what must be frequent lack of readily available records (or difficulty attaining them), but i'd question if we have any applicants in that stream on the forum. Complex cases too, as they state in the audit - for sure, that'd definitely increase processing time, but a complex case could occur across any of the 'streams'. Putting humanitarian aside, i'm still not sure we have enough to go on to consider a systematic difference in processing time based on PR type. I'd basically talking my way out of this as i'd rather not have another potential process to overthink

    Yes mate! Good stuff. You going to get that itch to check the appointments site every 3 seconds now haha. Just checked, lots of appointments 18 & 19 December if you're free then. Can always shift it again...

    I don't believe PR pathway is a factor in processing time. Citizenship eligibility only goes as far as the time spent as a permanent resident - it doesn't go any more granular than that in regards to type of PR an applicant has. There's no reason the type of PR would be used as a variable in the processing of citizenship.

    Ah that's cool! I wonder what the relevance is of 14th October? Is it a public holiday or special event or something? So 3.5 months from your test date to ceremony - not bad at all!
