Hi all after long wait I got my citizenship test date in June 2017 but I is there any change I can make it little early because I have holiday plan in June end so no idea what to do I called Immi and told them that I can go anywhere for test but they said if I live in Vic the only place I can give test is ViC no where else plz give me some suggestions
I am new to forums so please be patient. My father is an Australian Native and has always resided in Oz. I'm British by birth and on my mother's side. I'm 27 and want to apply for Australian citizenship. It hasn't been straightforward because his name is not currently on my birth certificate but my mother is having my birth certificate re-certified with his name (his has signed a parentage declaration).. this application has just been made. (hoping it doesn't take long). I am traveling to Oz in a few weeks time. I want to then make my Citizenship application there (with new birth certificate) as I want to stay there. My concern is the timeline of the process. I have previously spent a year in Oz on a 1yr working visa. I want to work as soon as I legally can when I return next month but worried it will be ages before the ceremony. Can it be fast tracked? Can I get a work permit in the interim? Is it a bad idea to go there on a 3month holiday visa (I am law abiding and would not work until legally able) when it may take longer to get a ceremony date? Has anyone done it this way?? Any help please!
Hi Guys, Just a few quick questions. First off I notice there is not alot of Information for citizenship as there is with visas on blogs and forums (correct me if I am wrong of course). I have been living in Australia since February 2009 and in August 2013 I will be a full year on PR so I can officially apply for Australian Citizenship. My questions are as follow: 1. What is the turn around at the moment for sitting the test i.e. from the date you apply on-line to dat you sit test. 2. Once the test is completed how long to Ceremony (With the Ceremony I am well aware that its dependent on the local council however ATM I am looking for a rough estimate if anyone has that information) I spoke to Australian Citizenship today and also some of my mates whom are going through the process and they are saying its between 6 to 10 months all inclusive. The reason I am curious is I want to book a few months overseas for a bit of travelling and looks like Ill be able to plan nothing until after May/June. Any information is greatly appreciated. And thanks for taking the time to read. Also if there is a spreadsheet with the date applied what council etc might be a good idea some similar to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtjmLt4bD4fJdGstYU9ZcHJJRUJHV05GSXRHUXdNY2c#gid=0 Cheers, PT
