Hi there, yes a few minutes after the test the online status changed to approved but I haven't received the approval letter yet. It has been 1 week now.

VIC question ... it seems there are a few testing locations outside Melbourne (Shepparton, Bendigo, Ballarat, Morwell and Warrnambool) but some information on this forum indicates that everyone gets funnelled through Melbourne anyway.  Has anyone completed their test and/or interview at one of these centres outside Melbourne?  I'm interested to know if there are faster timelines in any of these regional offices as compared to Melbourne applications.

https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship/test-and-interview/learn-about-citizenship-interview-and-test/citizenship-test-locator

I am not sure that these have re opened post Covid. Regional locations weren’t doing the tests and I’m not sure if they started again (not on the re-opened list)

I took my test on the 15th, still waiting for approval. I've seen for some people got it approved same day, just wondering what's the deciding factor behind that?

I did mine in Tassie. I don’t think there’s many of us on here based in Tas from the looks.
