    I got a reply from the Citizenship Delivery Program department. Here’s mainly what they wrote … I wish to acknowledge your concerns resulting from the delay in progressing your application ceremony allocation. Once approved applicants are required to attend a Citizenship Ceremony with 12 months of approval. Noting that your citizenship application was approved on 27 March 2021, it is expected that you will receive an invitation to a future ceremony within that 12 month timeframe. When you are allocated to a future citizenship ceremony, you will receive an invitation approximately two to four weeks prior to the scheduled date. Thank you for confirming that your contact details are up-to-date as this will ensure your future ceremony invitation is sent to the correct address. Citizenship ceremonies have been impacted by COVID-19 related lockdowns, with some ceremonies have been cancelled and re-scheduled to a later date. In addition to this, the number of conferees permitted to attend each ceremony has been limited to comply with relevant social distancing guidelines. Due to the large volume of applications proceeding to ceremony the Department is working closely with local councils to reduce wait times wherever possible

    Living in Australia - What you need to know

    Prescriptions- I’ve found the cheapest to be the larger chains like chemist warehouse. They buy larger quantities and can sell cheaper. Went to a local pharmacy recently as it was more convenient and ended up paying $85 instead of the usual $50

    Reply from SCC … We have a confirmed date of March 8 for the next citizenship ceremony, which will host around 500 recipients. We are still working on confirming our next dates, but there will be another large ceremony in May, and then we will move forward with our regular ceremonies (approx. 70 per ceremony) from June onwards. Depending on when you were approved from Home Affairs you may be invited to either the March or May ceremony, however please note because of a backlog we are experiencing delays and those who were approved in 2021 are sitting a little closer to a 10-11 month wait time. This will go down after we do the two large ceremonies, however we don’t have access to the current wait list so we aren’t able to guarantee any firm times.

    @Marty Result! Brilliant Thanks. Well done on finding that out. Yeah they’ve got to invite us to the March one surely. I got a reply from the Citizenship Delivery Program department today.

    Noosa have their future citizenship ceremony dates on their website so I have contacted Sunshine Coast Council to ask for dates of Citizenship Ceremonies for 2022 & how many people will be invited to each ceremony. I will post their response once/ if I get it.

    Sunshine Coast is longer than that. We applied 25 months ago. Approved 10 months ago and still waiting for a ceremony invite.

    Congratulations that’s great. Please could you share your location?
  13. Whoops, yep its awful there Very jealous
  14. Yep! If it was up to me we’d move back to the beautiful beaches near Adelaide
  15. Weathers been rubbish here on the Sunny for weeks now but to be fair it’s not normally. The Sunshine Coast is experiencing massive development. Houses prices going through the roof. Rentals extremely hard to get with a lot of people homeless or living in caravan parks if they are lucky. https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Experience-Sunshine-Coast/Statistics-and-Maps/Population-Growth Most of Australia want to move here at the moment. It is beautiful but not the quiet laid back place it was even 3 years ago. Yes we have bull sharks ( never seen one yet) sharks, huntsmen spiders and snakes ( watch Sunshine Coast snake catcher on YouTube to get an idea) but you just learn to live with them. Im more scared of the fast moving geckos and getting mosquito bites. Personally I’d prefer here to Melbourne.
