Dreaming_when posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all, Just thought I’d update everyone... I just had my citizenship test. The DHA officer who conducted the interview mentioned that they were going to postpone ALL citizenship tests and ceremonies for the next 6 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She said a formal announcement will be made soon. Ceremonies for urgent cases may still be considered according to the officer. (This is just what I was told and with the situation changing so quickly, we should wait for a formal announcement).
Hi All Just wanted to yell from the rooftops that I passed my Citizenship test today, Monday 20 April 2015 at Sydney Immi. I had a little practice at the weekend and just before the interview, using the government and some of those free test sites, (if anything you become used to the format of the questions). I was lucky as I rang the Citizenship line to see if I could do it earlier and wow instead of a month wait, I did it today - pretty cool. So today, I sat in front of the nice man at counter 6, gave all my ID as per online application for my interview. Good thing I bought extra ID as he wanted more than was required, apparently more ID helps with the background processing. All paperwork done and off I went to the test room. Another gentleman signed me in and yes 42 seconds later, computer said "Congratulations...you passed ...100%". Involuntary scream of joy:) Collected my things from the locker, had another jovial chat to gentleman at counter 6 and off I went, out into this English style stormy weather. Once I get the all clear letter re police and background checks, I can wait up to 6 months to do my Citizenship ceremony. But the good thing is I can travel abroad once I get that clearance letter, so I'm pretty happy. It has been a long haul from my dream in 2004 of living here. My final step will be getting my Australian passport - so wait for the loudest scream ever when that happens...lol!! BEGal
