    Got my appointment and test today. Scheduled late Jan. Pretty fast turnaround of 2.7 months to get the invite.

    Yeah so keen to get mine. Ive waited enough over the years! Sam as you - working hol, 457, work transfer, 457, 186, CITIZENSHIP. Same ANZCO too ha. You in Melbourne again I cant remember?

    Awesome mate. Moving quick that hey! Think we are owed it after the PR debacle! Hoping mine comes through soon. Its like our visa lives are in sync haha!

    There seems to be some crazy differences in the timelines - not that im surprised given this is my fifth and final IMMI process!! Annoying as hell. What has been the average you have seen on here recently? Not that I really care about it as I have PR but Im certainly looking forward to becoming a citizen of my adopted home!

    Mate hows things been? Great this PR malarky hey! You were right about people heading back to the forum around this time. Wonder who else will turn up! Im mentally prepared for 2 years before I have a meltdown. Ideally Im looking for 36 hours.

    Mate I am very familiar with the process times (hence the amount of posts I have!). So frustrating ha! I actually think I cracked their processing strategy in the end as I could predict the time and occupation quite accurately. Not sure you can do that with citizenships!

    Hello citizenship people! Back on the forum after a 12 months break. Conferral application is in today. So much easier than PR hey! Took me a few hours max. What are the realistic wait times at the moment? Im aware of the published guidelines but what is the average we are seeing on the forum?

    2000 pages and counting. That is a lot stressing! Imagine if we had all put that much effort into something productive haha!!

    Only just beginning the search but had a lot of friends get theirs recently so I will lean on them. I've done my own visa applications since (3!) since arriving here so this one should be fairly straight forward! I will have a look and see what the go is and report back.

    That is Sh1t! Cant even remember how long mine was. Feels like a bad dream I had. Felt a lot worse at the time. Think though...when it comes how good its going to be I actually came on here to check what everyone is saying about citizenship as im applying in June - that how fast things move post PR! Time stands still when you are in it but trust me, it passes.

    Im back at work too mate. Awful isn it. Usually I come back late Jan but new job means I need to be in the office from the go. Off to Europe skiing and partying in a few weeks mind! No news your end then hey? Keeping fingers and toes crossed for you.

    Hey hey! She got it! I guessed the 7th so I wasn't too far off! Congrats Bella to you and your partner (good name by the way - Chris' are the best people in the world I think). Cant believe you got it on NYE as well! Hope you are still super hungover!!! Makes me super happy to know you finally got it after all this time - always managing to keep everyone's spirits up too! See you on here for the citizenship run in 2019/20? Big love, Chris xx

    That is such good news!!!! Well happy for you! Friend of mine is getting stressed after waiting 8 months. Told him maybe not to look on here haha! Sounds like you are close anyway. Please message me if you get it! Weird I check this forum around the time you get your first bit of good news. Maybe its meant to be? I feel a Jan 8th visa coming on for you! It is so hot and Im dreading riding home. Bought a new motorbike so Ive been on it every day. Did not consider how hot I would be sitting at the lights!! Ouch.
