I went overseas just fo 25 days in January 2018. 

If that was a short trip like ours, then you should be able to get an invite as you are already here.

Did you contact your agent who applied for your citizenship in your behalf?

You could log into online. Immi. Gov.au and import your application with the app number on your acknowledgement receipt. Then click on communications tab.

Thats a ridiculous wait from test to approval and doesn't seem right. Most people have approval within 2 - 3 months after the test and some cases within the week. Do you have any special circumstances that may be holding up the approval? What country do you originate from? Have you been chasing them up, you would be well within your rights to do so.

I just noticed some of those who applied March and April last year were held up for approval after their test done.

 I hope they get their approval soon. And I hope some November applicants would provide their input as well if they were able to get a test date.

I only rely on the excel timeline sheet to know the trend, but if some will not provide their information, it will be difficult to know the processing time.

i rang at 6/12 mark as was worried as nothing other than  the acknowledgement  - Brisbane - they just said still within time frame of 12-18 months  to total completion   and cant give any feedback at all on individual applications ... they said call back if still no test date at a year tho ..... sooooooooo slow

There really doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the processing timescales.  We applied at Christmas and are awaiting our ceremony date (prob August) after taking our test early June with immediate approval. The agent who did our test said she had all the info and clear police checks so would approve straight away., we got the actual letter a week later but it said approved on our immi account later that day.

Our son applied on the 21st April 2017 and attended a ceremony on Australia Day this year.  We are all SA.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

Guys it seems like they have stopped processing any applications . There are not many recent test invites or approvals/ceremony seen in this and other forums.

 If the delays are because of general elections then when are the elections due ?  I am from November 2017 , but I see may people still waiting from June, July August still waiting for test invites .

I applied in Jan 2018.

I have exceptionally low expectations.

I hope to be invited for a test by 2019 and ceremony by 2020.

My Citizenship application approved 21st June 18. Applied June 2017. As I am out of state at the moment and have no access to my mail box so I have called the local council (even though they advise not to) to see if I am on the list for upcoming ceremonies in July. Unfortunately not and the 6 months from approval to ceremony date duration they advised seems realistic. They tentatively suggested I should be good for September or October and will receive an email, text message and letter so not to worry about being away from home with work.  Hope this info helps people in similar circumstances. Good luck to all.

Congrats on your test invites. Are you from India? If yes, I think @coolmotu only showed his passport as proof when he went for his test.

The letter is generic.  Take originals of the evidence you uploaded for the application.
