    Status will remain as “Received”until you’ve taken the citizenship test and your application has been approved. Status will changed to “Approved” on the day you sit the test given you do the test in a DHA office. Applications processed through centrelink centres may take up two 8 weeks for approval. Centrelink tests are more common in regional Australia or in areas DHA is not present. Be patient. It’s gonna take a while.

    1 - Take the old passport and your current driver’s license. If you get a new passport before interview date, bring both new and old. They’ll want to see the same document as the one in their records 2- Your new job is irrelevant for DHA at this point. No need to update anything. Cheers.

    These are the documents they request: The questions in the test are very similar, in some cases they just rephrase the questions. The Australian values questions are common sense, really. If you've lived in Australia long enough, you know what it means to have free speech, respect the differences etc etc... Good luck, mate!

    Hard to tell. I guess you'd better wait the 8 weeks timeframe they normally take to approve applications. The fact that they gave you this information means that they are aware you're back onshore and are definitely working on it. At least that... Hang in there!

    It'll remain unchanged until after your application is approved, which will only happen after you've taken the citizenship interview and test. You'll likely to be invited in the next couple of months — you'll receive an email with the date, time and location of your test. Only then your application status will change to 'Approved'. After you've attended the Citizenship Ceremony, it'll change to 'Finalised'.

    Me too. I had to wait 7 weeks, my partner waited 8 weeks. @Chelsearoxanna Have you done your ceremony yet? I think you had a date for when the lockdown happened, no?

    Yeap. That’s it. ID and Security checks. For some countries it’s quicker to do that, for other a bit slower. Plus, whether you did your test at Home Affairs or Centrelink also makes a difference; the latter takes up to 8 weeks.

    Hi RoEire, The Australian National Audit Office conducted inquiries into the ID Verification process (which is the approval stage) of Citizenship Applications in 2015. It does outline a longer process for tests conducted at Centrelinks as it relies on a different method to enter and communicate data. It should take up to 8 weeks, but delays are another thing that have been pointed out in the report. https://www.anao.gov.au/work/performance-audit/verifying-identity-citizenship-program

    Yes, that’s what I would do. Choose Ukraine and leave a note in the comments section with the question number.

    If they’re overseas certificates and they’re issued online, then it just print them and bring a NAATI-certified translation

    1. Just as some trivia, Brazil issues both Federal and State police clearances online and they are issued instantly. 2. I have friends who received communication from DHA over the weekend regarding ceremony and interview.

    Since you don’t have it, I guess you’ll have to bring the printed copy. I’d go to the interview knowing that you might have to rescheduled it and asked to return with the original one. In any case, I find it funny that they’re requesting you to bring the clearance when Home Affairs will do all the identity, background and police checks necessary after the interview but before approval . Let us know how it goes.
