What should I do after I got the Australian citizenship test date?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

When me and my wife were applying for the Australian citizenship on 6 June 2019, we had no plan to travel back to our country. After we received the test date on 1 August 2019, the test date will be on 5 February 2020. My family convinced me to visit them this upcoming new year 2020. So I decided to go back for holiday to visit my family this January 2020 for 3 - 4 weeks.

My question is, What should I do? Do I need to update or inform the immigration. Or will they cancel or postpone my test date?

Thank you in advance and sorry for my English.

I would just go online and re arrange the appointment it is easy enough. You may well be able to bring the date forward by a month or so. 

Im pretty sure the letter for the invitation tells you how to do this.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

On the letter say:

If you cannot attend

If you are unable to attend the appointment time, you can reschedule online at appointments.homeaffairs.gov.au

Yes, I am able to attend the appointment time.

I mean I will be back before the test date. I am 100% sure me and my wife will have to sit there on the date, but the question on application say " Does the applicant intend to depart Australia within the next 12 months?" I put a "NO" because at the time I really had no plan to go back to my country.

Now, we have already bought the plane tickets after received the test date and had just realise how do I update the travel record. Is it going to be a fraud application? or everybody just put YES and NO? I understand if I had a plan to travel oversea I will definitely put a "YES" on that questions. Even I received the test date, I will reschedule. I really don't know what to do.

You are not a prisoner. Just reschedule the appointment to suit you.  You weren’t lying. People change travel plans all the time. You don’t need to update the travel record for every holiday

Definitely don’t panic....
Applications are taking so long to process and “life happens” so people’s plans change. That is not fraud.
