    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2020-2021

    Congratulations mate. I´m also on the Sunny Coast however haven´t been invited for the ceremony yet - my wife and I passed the test on the 26/10/2020 but our status remain as"Further Assessment". I have no idea how long it may take for them to approve our application. Does anyone know how long it usually takes? I can see here and in other forums that most cases are approved within a day.

    Hi guys, my wife and I passed the test on Monday 26/10 but just checked immi account and it is still showing: "Further Assessment" Does anyone know how long it usually takes to approve it?

    Did you call them or email them? I did call them a couple of days ago and the lady who spoke to me told me that if I don't have the original document I won't be able to sit the test - I decided to call them again yesterday and another guy told me he is unsure if they will be ok with that and recommended me to email the regional citizenship department but I am still waiting for their reply.

    I am also worried about that. My mum has posted it already but it is scheduled to arrive here just on the 29/10 and my interview/test is on the 26th. I don't know if I should just go to the interview anyway or reschedule it to a later date when I have the original birth certificate at hand

    Actually I just found out that I need to take the original birth certificate with me and I don´t have it here with me It is probably going to take ages for my mum to post it for me so I assume I wont be taking the test next week - can´t believe that!

    It is indeed very frustrating! Have friends on the Gold Coast that applied in September and October last year and are already citizens! Apart from covid, I don't know why the process here in the sunny coast is so slow.

    Hi there! Nothing... all I received was an email from them asking for a copy of my original birth certificate (not the translated one) and shortly after that every thing was closed due to covid. I will email them and let you know the outcome. Thanks

    Hi Guys, I have two questions: 1- Has anyone been invited for the citizenship test lately? 2- My son was born last month - me and my wife are permanent residents, therefore he is Australian, however I would like to know if we have to include his details in our application? Does anyone know? Thanks!

    Hi Samlab! I have received an email from DHA requesting my original birth certificate (not the translated one) on the 23/03/2020, however I haven´t heard back form them as yet. So, Im still waiting for the citizenship test. What about you? any news?

    Hi Guys, I received an email from DHA last month on the 23/03/2020 requesting further information (original birth certificate) and stating that I had to reply within the next 28 days. I have done that straight away and am now waiting for their decision in order to take the citizenship test. Does anyone know if they also need to get back to me within the 28 days? Thanks!

    Hey guys, I have just received an email from DHA with my FOI Request and they have attached three documents but none of them seems to be explaining why my application is taking so long. There is a screen shot of my application on their end and also a document with a lot of information that I have no idea what it means. Has anyone ever requested FOI here? What sort of information did you receive back from them?

    Hey mate! No they haven't updated me of anything as yet. All I received was the acknowledgment email last week. Hopefully I will hear from them anytime soon. Thanks man! Wish you luck too!

    Yes, I sent the FOI request to the Department of Home Affairs on the 12/02 and received the acknowledgment email just last week on the 26/02.

    It seems that most of the applications made on the second semester of last year were processed faster than the ones made at the first semester of 2019. All we can do is wait =/

    Yes, I called them a couple of months ago and the lady I spoke with told me that if they had sent me an email, it would also be under the messages tab at immi account. I will see if I can find about this MP in Canberra that deals with delayed applications. Thank you mate!

    Hi Indianinoz, Have just included my signature with timeline. I applied for citizenship in April last year and it is quite disappointing that I haven't received anything back from them yet.

    Hey Guys, I have made a FOI request last week on the 12/02/2020 however I haven't received anything back from them as yet. Does anyone know if it takes that long for them to get back to me? Should I try to contact my local MP in order to check if he/she can help in some way? Cheers

    Thanks mate! I will try that - fingers crossed they access my application soon and send me the invitations for the test. Cheers

    Appreciate your reply mate. I will definitely go for the FOI then - I didn't know about this option. And I haven't left the country after applying for the citizenship. Cheers.

    Hi guys .... my first time here. Does anyone know who is responsible for analyzing the citizenship application? Is the local council (Sunshine Coast in my case) or the department of immigration? I have applied for citizenship in April 2019 and haven't received anything from them yet. A friend of mine applied in September and everything happened so fast to him that his ceremony is on Friday 14/03. I have applied with my wife and we selected the option to have our ceremony together, so I don't know if this could be the reason why is taking so long. Thanks!
