    Why would you wait for the AU passport? Can you not travel on your other one? This is exactly what I am going to do with my short holiday.

    Not at all, the ladies were quite helpful actually. This is the first ceremony since May for my council and I don't think our one is a very busy one. I think they get annoyed if you are calling straight after the test and directly about the letter etc. something that does not come from them but from DHA. I knew the invitation letters were to be sent app 1 month before the next ceremony, so that's what I told them and asked I just wanted to check if my name was on the list for the next ceremony. I think that's fair if you are planning a trip you'd want to know and plan accordingly.

    I called Wollahra Council yesterday to ask whether my name was on the list for the next ceremony on the 8 August and they said I was definitely on the list! So it’s all happening. Took app 10 months in total. Good luck everyone!!

    Congrats! Lol I was told 6-9 months. I think this is just a very standard thing they need to say (I strongly suspect their system gives them an indication of ETA taking into account the standard processing time and the time from app to test, e.g. 16 months less 7 months till test = 9 months, so they give you 6-9 months). Obv depends on the council and the number of ceremonies and people Hopefully sooner than that!!

    Exactly Congrats to you too! If you read the booklet and practise some online tests you should be fine. I found the test really easy

    Thank you! So much more relaxed now! It was the original date, I figured it was just a week later so couldn't be bothered with changing it

    I'd use this calculator with your specific dates. https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/ente/retu/residence-calculator

    I don't think I used a specific email, but the contact form on their website. It is not easy to find though https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/corporate/information/forms/online/citizenship-elodgement-enquiry-form Oh and they don't like people contacting them requesting update of status etc so I sent something in the spirit of 'I am aware of the processing times, however wanted to make sure that the documents I submitted are sufficient and there is nothing from my side I should still submit.'

    Thank you! Just passed the test yesterday too. So happy, not sure about the 6 months though. Weird I also sent them an email on the 6th of April and got my test email on the 27th of April. Not sure if related, other people think it is just coincidence.
