Citizenship - Ceremony Waiting Times

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there approved for citizenship and waiting on the ceremony? What area and how long have you been waiting?

 

My approval was granted on the 18th July (initial application went into the Sydney CBD office on the 4th June) and the ceremony location was put down for Leichhardt Municipality...

Hi

Sorry to tell you this but I was in Sydney..............passed test May 2012.............got ceremony January 2013

 

Huge backlogs in Sydney

 

Best thing to do is call them and say you will accept and travel anywhere within reason...........I did.........ended up at Parramatta in a office ceremony during lunch hour eg: no pomp and circumstance

as I am living exactly on the border of two councils,

was wondering if we could nominate neighboring council with shorter waiting list for ceremony ?
