Proposed citizenship eligibility changes - Round 2 (2018)

Recommended Posts

It would be a better idea for the Australian government to ease into it. Make it 4 years living in Australia with 2 years of pr instead of the current 1 year. But trying to change from 1 to 4 at one go, would not be the best idea.

I agree with you @Areyousure. Making it 4 years PR will hurt those staying here longer such as work visa, student visa holders. 

This will still need to pass again, so it might not happen this year.. I hope.

Spring session started yesterday. As per the article, this was put on priority, so it will likely come up in a month or two. Hard to guess really.

Thanks Zet01

For the time being, until the bill comes up on the parliament, are new applications being accessed as of before July 1st?

Personally I will be able to apply after September 19th so hopefully no changes until then.

I would guess so, but apparently there is over 200,000 citizenship applications waiting to be processed.

You will still be processed under the current rules. September is just around the corner. Crossing fingers that it will be implemented late.

Current processing times is around 14-17 months as per the website.
