Just seen that licence test appointments are reopening https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/licence-test-appointments-reopen-melbourne

Hopefully, citizenship tests next for those of us waiting in Victoria.

I found this information from the gov website.

In-person citizenship appointments continue to be on hold in regional Victoria. This will not impact your citizenship application. Some ceremonies are now being held online. See COVID-19 and the border, Citizenship.

Finally, the citizenship application is approved on the Immi website.

Waiting for the Ceremony which is the last step of this journey, looking forward to receiving this letter soon 🙂

 

I hope you get the virtual ceremony soon 🙂

Applied for citizenship: 15 October 2020

Council: Cairns 

Invitation letter for test received on: 11 November 2020

Test Appointment : 4 December 2020

Rescheduled: 17 November 2020

17 November 2020: test PASSED, application APPROVED shortly after.

My partner has applied on the same day, but he still didn't received a test date. It might be because he has criminal records (15 years ago in Italy).

I wish this will happen soon!

However, the pandemic situation is settled where I'm located (touch wood) and, I reckon it will be a regular ceremony at the council 🙂

I was told during my interview that the ceremonies are back to being in person now (this was NSW).

Interest that Cairns has such a quick turn around,  yet in other regional coastal QLD cities (like mine), very little movement is happening.

Not surprising. Cairns is the only regional town in Queensland and non capital town in Australia to have a DOHA office. Other regional towns, like mine(Mackay), all rely on Centrelink for test/interview.

Hi All,

Sorry if this question has already been answered - I did flick back a few pages... but no joy.

I need to send my UK passport off to be renewed (it expires in 6 months) this is likely to take some time to get the renewal due to delays with covid in the UK.  Just wondering if I am called for the interview/test and do not have my passport will it be an issue?

I do have ID documents such as NSW Drivers License and UK License, Birth Certificate, Medicare Card...

Can anyone confirm on this?

Thanks in advance 🙂

For my interview, I was only asked to present the driver's license and, no one asked for the passport.
You could be the same.
