I rang again last week and just told to wait as I expected ...... we are over 15 months now and nothing ..... no requests for extra info .... just waiting for a test date .... told me no news is good news essentially ...... they checked my application and said all looks ok ..... just frustrating when others getting tesr etc yet applied after us . All very random ! . I have visions of applying for another RRV at this rate before we get an Ozzie passport - imagine 😆

Applied 3rd April 2018 - Acknowledged 23rd April 2018

Unable to do online via the system only 18-59 yo able to apply online - I am 60+ years

ImmiAcct - showing received - Nothing since

British by birth - English spoken - retired - married to Australian citizen - no children

It is now 14 months since paper application, heard nothing since

Recently changed address - same suburb - advised via ImmiAccount receive acknowledgement of change

Nothing more since.... will be making enquires via local MP because the processing timelines state 75% processed in 14 months.... have seen literally many many applications well after mine - having test, approved, ceremony and even passport application...

Maybe a phone call to DoHA would assist you

You are very lucky, I applied April 2018 nothing since.... which country are you from please, would depend on further police verification.... and what age grouping are you, as sometimes that bears situations.... like myself being over 60+ years.

Morning Garry...…. I do not know why the delay as the application is only for myself, my wife is an Australian.

Paper application as I am over 60+ years, no dependants, English born and bred.

Going to see local MP as many others applied after me and already have citizenship, no rhyme nor reason for delay.

Suggest contacting local MP.... which state are you in and under which local Council?

All the best Richard

Who comes in 75% and who 90% ??

very confused ? Plz explain if some one know exactly mean of this . 

Thanks

Hey Garry

You do not fall in to a particular group. There is no criteria which says whether you'll be completed in the first 75 or 90% of applications.

These are simply statistics from the processing office to show the current workload and how it effects your estimated waiting time. It shows that 75% of the entire volume of applications are done in an estimated period of time, and 90% in another. This leaves 10% of applications which take longer than that (usually more complex applications). It is really only used for a rough guide, and many applicants will experience shorter (and some longer) time frames.

Think of it this way - if 75% of all applications are completed in 18 months, that means a big proportion of applications are presumably completed in less that 18 months.

It's currently:

Application to decision

  • 75% - 14 months
  • 90% - 19 months

 This means of all the applications submitted, 75% are estimated to receive a decision with 14 months, and another 15% (making 90% of all applications) estimated a decision in 19 months. The remaining 10% are not considered in these time frames.

 

To look at the entire estimated timeline:

Application to ceremony

  • 75% - 18 months
  • 90% - 23 months

'Application to ceremony' may be more useful, as this is the entire citizenship time frame. This is currently 75% in 18 months, and 90% in 23 months. 

 

As a general rule, unless you have a particularly complex application you should really expect to have a decision within the 90% frame (but again there is no guarantee unfortunately!).
