To all Melbournians waiting for their test - let’s unite together!

If you like many other people I have spoken to are feeling like your citizenship application have been delayed for so long that it feels like it’s been forgotten, with months and years of waiting time piling up and no hope in sight, let’s our voices be heard

- Write to your local mps explaining your situation

- Carbon copy or write to the Hon Karen Andrews MP (Minister for Home Affairs)

- Carbon copy or write to the Hon Alex Hawke MP (minister for immigration, citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs)

- Write to the press (ABC, Herald Sun, The Age, etc)

- Call the immigration call centre

Let’s do something. It’s just not right that the rest of the country is progressing with the tests and ceremonies as usual, while here in Melbourne we’re all stuck at pre-lockdown numbers

I already wrote to our local MP months backs about how unfair it is that the people who have suffered the most in this country over the last two years are still being treated worse than the areas that have lived without restrictions.

It's honestly a joke though, from what I see no one has any citizenships test since we've reopened, whereas people in SA and WA are getting approved and conferred in 3-4 months. 

Something needs to be done about it, online citizenship test should have become a thing, get all your documents verified like the 100 other visas I had and answer the test questions over zoom. 


Occupation: engineering proressional
State: vic
Birth Country: Ireland
Stream: 457 - 186 TRT

IMMI Status: finalized

Still no news from Melbourne. Applied mid 2020 still haven’t done the test and this is just one of the many things that no longer function in this city “because of covid”. What a disgrace, we have become the worst place to live in Australia.

Have you gotten any communication at all or just still showing the status as application received?

 

Does anyone know if NSW is even processing citizenship applications at the moment?

Are you serious? That’s way within processing times. People in Melbourne are waiting for a sign since mid-2020

Mate, Calm down. I'm sorry you are waiting so long but it's literally just a question. I was just curious if Sydney was processing applications, and wanted to see what timeline in Sydney we are looking at, which is completely different to Melbourne.

You need to go a bit easy, mate...

Every state is different and you having longer processing times does mean others have no right to complain...

I applied in September this year and gave my test and received approval in October.. still haven't received the ceremony date and that makes me feel as if it's getting delayed for no reason... And now with Omicorn here, one can expect further delays

We both received an email but then about a week or so later my partner & daughter who’s  9 both received a letter . I never received a letter . Then the day after the ceremony I received an email which had attached the letter they received about 6-8 weeks before. 
 

Go figure

Amazing how quickly you got a response.

Hi 

 
Can anyone help me regarding my question?
 
My wife failed the Australian citizenship test for the third time, because of her english. 
 
Should we apply for a new application? or we have to apply for the AAT.
 
Or have any other options. 
 
Thank you in advance

How many answers were given wrong? If it were just a couple, I have heard cases where they consider...

1. Does your wife's application show as "rejected" on the immi account?

2. Just call the immi office and ask them for options...
