That's so exciting for you! I didn't apply till 01/09/2021 so I have a while to wait but it's just good to know that Sydney is processing applications and tests are being conducted

Good luck on your test!

Hello everyone ,

I have 2 questions regarding my citizenship application if anyone can help. 
 

1. I have added my newborn in children section of the application. I have applied for the birth certificate though but i haven’t applied for citizenship certificate yet. Baby is not the citizen of any county in papers ( no proof) . Should I apply and wait for his citizenship certificate first and then apply for my citizenship application or should I declare the child as Australian citizen as being the child of PR/citizen parent or just leave blank those info?

2. Filling in information for my parents, as one of my parent has passed away long time ago. There is no option to put his info as “deceased” however there is about his citizenship status as how did he acquired his citizenship overseas? And I choose “by birth” So should I choose the next option of ‘how/when did it ended’ as his date of passing or just leave it blank? 
 

thanks a million in advance

Hi all, 

I got a question regarding my citizenship application. I am applied on 24 of April 2021, I still have not heard anything from the department of home affairs. Is that normal? As I can see that some people applied after me and the got their test invitations already. I have applied from Sydney.

I've got a question and appreciated if someone had the same situation can shed some light

My application was lodged in October 2020 under my old passport (expired now). In 2021, given the expiring passport, I got a new one and following this, I've updated details on immi account and attached a scanned copy of the new passport to my citizenship application

Is that all I need to do or am I missing something?

I'm still haven't heard any update re. my application (14 months already). Some background details as follow:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Current visa: subclass 189 (granted 2016)

Citizenship application: Oct 2020

Region: Melbourne, VIC

Number of applicants: 1

Application status: Received

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you all

Nope. Victoria is by far the worst state of Australia ever since Corona came.

I applied in August 21. But based on my immi tracker, last person who was processed in Victoria applied in September 2020. So still a long way to go. 

After lockdown ended, NSW has already started the application processing. Rest of the states were always doing great. Victoria on the other hand has a backlog of year and a half and are not working at all since most recent lockdown started few months ago.

I have applied from Victoria in March 2021, and need to travel overseas for a couple of months.

Does anyone know whether I am legally allowed to travel while awaiting an outcome of the application?
