    Citizenships documents

    https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship/become-a-citizen/permanent-resident You haven't stated, but presuming you're talking about citizenship by conferral just have a look at the home affairs website link above, see the section 'step by step'.
  3. @Sigemup have you discovered the 1300t form yet? The paper-based citizenship application? https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/form-listing/forms/1300t.pdf It's a good way of getting an overview of the application before you're able to access the online version.
  4. Hi again! 1. No. Only for those applying. But, you do need: DOB, place of birth, citizenship and date acquired of any parents or siblings you are listing on the app. 2. No. Give a couple if you want. I've only ever given one primary email address per application/applicant. 3. No. Only to pay your fee, no banking details/history for the actual application. 4. Have you a specific case which requires a form 80 for citizenship? It wasn't a requirement for us, and i wasn't aware it was for any citizenship path (could be wrong!). For our form 80 on the 186, we created a standalone Word doc, and used a new page for each section which needed continuation. Clearly labelled in the header of each page, something like: 'PART F - QUESTION 19 | EMPLOYMENT HISTORY CONTINUATION' Then we'd try as best we could to 'recreate' the form fields or table from the form 80 section in Word, and continuing filling in there. Say if that was page 1 of the continuation Word doc, we'd add a note in to the last available part of the original form 80 section "CONTINUED ON PAGE 1 CONTINUATION SHEETS" Then simply PDF the Word doc when done and insert these pages at the end of the form 80 so it's altogether and can't be missed. Hope that makes sense.

    Question about Form 1195 filling

    1. Not to complete the form no. I couldn't comment on the phone call/check as i haven't had it happen yet for me, but unlikely i think! 2. Yes one of these forms per applicant. Can be the same person if you have more than one applicant. 3. I can't really comment on specific titles as I wouldn't be giving accurate information. I did so happen to ask a radiologist friend of our family though, and she told us that she did not fall under any of the professions/occupations listed, as she wasn't counted as a 'Medical Practitioner'.

    Ah great. Furthers my point.

    Question about Form 1195 filling

    Ah no, for sure if you've worked there 2.5 years that is fine. The person has known you personally for over 1 year. The key thing with the 1195 which is unlike other 'certified' processes is that the person has to know you, rather than being a representative of an entity that 'knows you'. For example, when you get docs certified it can sometimes count to go in to a branch of your bank and have a staff member sign off for you, as the bank has known you given your time as an account holder of the bank. In the case of the 1195 this wouldn't count though. The person you pick needs to be happy to answer a call to say they as an individual actually know you. Hope this makes sense.

    Question about Form 1195 filling

    Hey 1. You can get your 1195 and photo signature sorted prior to starting an application - just leave the TRN blank. You can then start a citizenship application online in the lead up to your eligible date, and after the first 1 or 2 pages of the online form you can 'Save' and a TRN is generated. Then simply add this in to your 1195 and scan it ready to upload once you're online app is completed. 2. From what I can see on a quick google search on this subject, an insurance company is considered a finance company. Personally, I would pick "Manager, Investment Operations" as it is the clearest and most 'black and white' finance-sounding title on there. If you really wanted to put your mind at rest, you could speak to DOHA to check. Something to note though - how long have you worked there? have these people genuinely known you for 1 year?

    We combined our original visa grant letter, flight ticket email and passport scan to cover all basis.

    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.

    UK- AUS freedom of travel

    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!
