    Congrats - awesome news. What council are you in? was your physical ceremony cancelled and you got an online one? my physical one has been cancelled in Port Phillip so just wondering what may happen (we weren't told anything other than cancellation).

    Sharing - A friend of mine just received an invitation to Stonnington, vic council ceremony in July (Approved Feb 21).

    Also no harm in doing FOI again. Strange they said it was too general

    For sure I’ll let you know! I just called the council this morning to see more info and they weren’t able to anything. You are right though some people only get 2 weeks notice which is very close. You can defer your ceremony though and you guys will be fine to do the March 22 ceremony as it’s still within 12months of your approval date. When you get invited, just defer ceremony. I totally understand it’s easier to sort now prior to going cos you can’t plan flights etc. It’s just such a bummer being caught in Vic backlog!

    I’m the same but don’t think that I can wait for ceremony to head overseas. I asked the day I did my test in Melbourne CBD and they said the waiting times weren’t that bad but didnt give me an indication of number. I saw on another blog that someone passed in Jan 21 and got a ceremony in April 21 so that gave me some hope. People generally hear by email (but again I’ve asked and neither council nor Immi will confirm). I called immi last week and they said u typically find out 4 weeks prior if u are on list so I’m guessing that’s about this week for Jul ceremony.

    I was approved on 1 Apr 2021 so hoping to get this July ceremony in Port Phillip but not sure invites have issued yet. I might try calling the council as I’ve seen this can be helpful. I’ve seen successful requests on right to know.org.au that simply ask the straight question how many people are awaiting a ceremony in X council at X date

    Oh brilliant you got word of your ceremony. When did you receive this was it just today? Delighted for you. There is one in my council on 22nd July and trying to figure out when I would hear about it (if I got it!)

    That is unfair I’m sorry things are such a mess with wait times. I’m similar wanting process to be over. Have you tried an FOI for your council?
