    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2020-2021

    Hi there, hope you are keeping well I'm still waiting to receive the passport, and can provide the update once i get it. But basically: - Ceremony on 11 April, - The instruction mentioned wait for 10 business days before applying for passport, but I tried online (passports.gov.au) and it allowed me to apply after 3 days (i.e. the website managed to validate the certificate number) - Given Easter break, I only went to lodge it at Australia Post on 20 April and now still waiting. On the website, status is "under assessment" Hope it helps

    Thanks. Good luck to you with the process too. I will probably give another update on how the process of applying for a passport is

    Updated ceremony invitation. Guys this is surprisingly fast as I thought it would be another 6-8 months wait for the ceremony so I hope this is a good sign for all the people waiting in VIC

    I kinda feel like we need to set up a shared spreadsheet and kindly ask everyone to update their timeline in there. Once we’ve got that, I think a lot of the questions can be answered and people can refer to it for general timeline I’m happy to set up the file. But keen to hear if people are interested in the idea

    What document are you actually referring to? My experience going to the test (last week / in Melbourne VIC) was they only looked at my driver licence and passport (mainly to confirm your identity). I did bring along my birth certificate (assuming this is the doc you are talking about) but wasn't needed

    Hi Amy, so you waited c.7-8 months from approval to ceremony? and you are in QLD.. Then I can only assume VIC will take longer than that unless someone has got a better experience to share... Congrats and enjoy the ceremony ahead

    I've got a question and appreciated if someone had the same situation can shed some light My application was lodged in October 2020 under my old passport (expired now). In 2021, given the expiring passport, I got a new one and following this, I've updated details on immi account and attached a scanned copy of the new passport to my citizenship application Is that all I need to do or am I missing something? I'm still haven't heard any update re. my application (14 months already). Some background details as follow: ------------------------------------------------------------------- Current visa: subclass 189 (granted 2016) Citizenship application: Oct 2020 Region: Melbourne, VIC Number of applicants: 1 Application status: Received ------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you all

    Hi there, I applied late October 2020 so been a year now... Well, I hope they WFH. Other states other than VIC still progressing pretty quickly

    Looks like Melbourne/VIC is really slow compared to other states. Since Covid hits the typical waiting time has been c.1 year. But hopefully for applications lodged recently the process will be a bit faster...
