You need to learn the testable section in Our Common Bond. All the questions are based on that content.

Thank you. 

There are twenty questions in that. Is that enough?

No, you need to read and learn the testable part of the document.
The questions at the end are just an example.

Anyone have an update from the Sunshine Coast? 

Applied 4th May 2018

test 8th May 2019

waiting approval

just sent off for my second foi and a month ago I had a call from the CO after complaining on the global feedback. He said that he approves 400 a week and that he’s in April right now so I’ll be coming up soon. He said keep checking my mailbox so I’ve been doing it daily for over a month now 😅

i said that it was BS that regional areas get longer approvals yet there’s so many people in major cities getting same day approvals and there’s many applicants from 2019 getting their citizenship within a few months. This process is utter BS

Just letting you all know guys that I was just approved for my citizenship.

Applied 30 Jan 2017
Test 19 July 2018
Approved 27 Aug 2019
18 months and 28 days from Application to Approval.

I attempted the FOI thing and was denied. 
Called the hotline only to be told we need to JUST wait.

All the best to everyone. So over the moon.

Congratulations on passing your test, I am not from the same council but I just had a quick question. The approval on the immi site did you get an email notification or did you check on the site itself?

I have by test yesterday and have a very similar timeline, so hoping for a quick approval.

Thanks! No email. I checked the immi account. I had a nice case officer for the interview and she told me that there is no email sent for the approval. She also mentioned that she just needed to run some checks and that if everything was ok she expected to be able to approve within a day or two. So I checked this morning!

Submit it online. Just type FOI in Google and should take you to the FOI page.

Answer as needed and quote you want your ICSE Screenshot and Case notes.

Attach Driver license or anything proof of who you are and submit.

They will respond if they needs more information.

Hi,

I have a question on the required documents to be produced on the exam day!

Is Birth Certificate is Mandatory document? I do not have one. 

Whats the alternative to it? Does Statutory declaration is sufficient?

Regards

What did you provide in your application?   The letter is very generic.  They want sight of originals you had to provide in your application. This differs from country to country as the official documentation differs. Just take those.
