Mine was emailed only. No letter NOR any updates on IMMIAccount. 

It was also emailed by a random Council worker whose name was highlighted in the email, which could easily be missed, deleted, or possibly go to junk mail.. At least by me.. 

Hi Sana, is it DOHA or council send emails for ceremony..thank you

Olivia,

I think it is in Messages section in immi account. But I am also waiting for test invite, so cant confirm. Will wait for someone in group to confirm. 

It can go to SPAM inbox. So please keep a watch on SPAM/Promotions folder.

Don't stress, just check couple of times in a week.

The Test invite email came from noreply@mail.appointments.homeaffairs.gov.au  and the Subject was :Citizenship Appointment Letter - Brisbane Office .

Its best to keep a watch on your Spam folder incase this goes into it.

The same will also come up in the messages (List of correspondence) section of your citizenship application in the immi account

Hi Oshan,

They requested form 1399 to be submitted. This included further info on education history (Primary school to PHD studies lol), Employment history from when I was 16 to present and the rest was not applicable to me to do with military service etc. Never heard of this form issued to other english applicants. 

Anyway, we shall wait and see.

Great News Rob. 

I'm in the Waverley area, so thanks for the heads up. 

Completed my test on the 11th and awaiting approval. Got told maybe 2 weeks or so , so makes sense given your timelines. 

Did you do a remote ceremony via Teams/Zoom etc? 

 

Cheers
