Application for citizenship - Form related questions

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Questions:
a) Say I first made entry into Australia on 4th Dec 2015 on a PR. When is the day that I can apply for citizenship? 3rd Dec 2019? 4th Dec 2019? 5th Dec 2019?
b) I tried filling up the form. It didn't ask for my dates but asked for my Visa Grant number. It has 34 pages and after filling up 6 pages, it says I can't continue as I haven't yet fulfilled residence requirement. While that is correct, how does the system know? Does it check through my Visa Grant number?
c) Me and my wife are applying. Do we need to create 2 separate logins or can we both submit through my login?

As soon as you give them your passport number on p3, they know everything about you! You can do separate applications in the same account.

a) You can use https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/tools/residence-calculator

b) Yes, you can not complete your application before you're eligible date.

c) You can use same immi account with two different application. i.e.: your immi account , but two seperate applications

On page 21 of 34 in the application form, there is a field:
Evidence of date of birth and birth name

Is Passport sufficient proof for this or is attaching a Birth certificate compulsory?

Birth certificate - as passport does not give your birth name, it gives your current name.

Is there a Citizenship helpline that I can call on?

Yes there is,. They are better than immigration 'helplines' but should not be relied on entirely.

Thanks. Does a school leaving certificate work if birth certificate is not available?

I think you’d have got a quicker answer from Google, but: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help-support/contact-us
