Is it worth submitting an FOI request? What kind of information does that actually tell you in regard to your application?

Hi Vickyplum….. yes unfortunately if you have only just applied the road is long and the waiting frustrating.... but there is a light at the end of the tunnel as they say.... I have been waiting now 15 months and 1 day... each day counts... all the best....you may be one of the lucky ones that gets through sooner rather than later...Richard

Thanks, appreciate it!

Just a question guys. Can we withdraw our application if we apply by post as I don’t have any TRN or Client ID . No acknowledgement letter was sent as I applied by post. Thanks

I'm not sure. Have you tried calling them up to say you want to withdraw your application but you don't have your trn etc?

Hello guys, 

just wanted to ask, my husband had applied for his citizenship application in feb at that time i did not get my Permanent residence. Now i got my PR so my question is does my husband need to update about it to the department? If yes than how? 

Any help would be highly appreciated 

thanks 

I think he is still in PR status. He would sponsor you as a Permanent Resident not as a citizenship. In my view he doesn't but yes it would be beneficial to check it once.

Hello citizenship people!

Back on the forum after a 12 months break. Conferral application is in today. So much easier than PR hey! Took me a few hours max.

What are the realistic wait times at the moment? Im aware of the published guidelines but what is the average we are seeing on the forum?

Hello welcome back. 

Wait times for this period I wouldn't know on a realistic scale but it looks like applications get test dates pretty quick. 

From my own experience as well as what I have read on other forums. 

Som have already completed the process or are half way there. Those who lodged in this year 2019 (myself included) is what I am referring too. 

Probably best to think in terms of what DOHA posts up as estimated times, as not to gets to discouraged 🙃

Seems crazy all over the place/pot luck, kinda like our 186 wait haha.

Have seen 3 months to ceremony, also seen 16-18 months with no test appointment.

Mate I am very familiar with the process times (hence the amount of posts I have!). So frustrating ha! I actually think I cracked their processing strategy in the end as I could predict the time and occupation quite accurately. Not sure you can do that with citizenships!

Mate hows things been? Great this PR malarky hey!

You were right about people heading back to the forum around this time. Wonder who else will turn up! Im mentally prepared for 2 years before I have a meltdown.

Ideally Im looking for 36 hours.

Ha! Yes 36 hours would be great.

In all seriousness though, taking in to account the activity I've seen recently I'd be happy to have a test booked in within 8-10 months. That'd be a good outcome. But yeah - try and mentally prepare for 12-18 months.

Things been good! Definitely glad to be off the 457 what with all the changes discussed/implemented in the last couple of years. Also glad not to have a 186 to put in or wait for!

Have you telephoned them to ask why the delay ?

Try contacting your local MP and given them all the details they should follow up for you ?

But try phoning first... have you ever applied for FOI (Freedom of Information) ?

All the best
