Let me know how you go. I think we are just impatient but the idea of completing the journey makes it hard not to be!

Yes, there maybe issues, until her application is approved.

Hi guys need a suggestion

Applied for my citizenship on 18/03/2021 Brisbane city, my wife and daughter still didn't reach the requirement for their citizenship 

I changed my daughters name after lodging my citizenship application and got a new birth certificate and change of name certificate. I have attached the two certificates is that enough or do I also need to apply for her new Indian passport ( which I will do in coming days) and attach the document.

Just wondering about the timeline for Brisbane city council.

Thanks

Hi Kumar,

 

We are 1 month apart in our submissions. I did on the 19th April. I'd be keen to follow your progress. Am from Brisbane too. 

Is your daughter under 16? If so, you could have included her in your application itself. They don't need to meet the eligibility condition separately. Only your wife needs to meet the conditions on her own.

Hi Forum members,

Hope everyone is doing well. Can anyone provide some colour on ceremony timeline in Ku ring gai council Sydney? My application was approved recently and now waiting for the ceremony. For others benefit my timeline - applied in late nov 2020, test invite in late April and approved same day. Thanks.

Finally, attended my interview & test today (rescheduled from May 14).

Everything and everyone was just way too relaxed, lol.

I've got a nice and very talkative officer (she also shared some stories of her cultural background and talked a lot about the country from where her parents immigrated to Australia) and only been asked for my passport, birth certificate, and PhotoID.

The test itself was much easier than I expected,  it only took me 5 minutes and all my answers turned to be correct.

Now, I'm just waiting for the invitation to the ceremony (Canterbury and Bankstown). The status is still 'Received', though. Update: The status has changed to Approved in a few moments after I published this post.

Hi all,

Wondering if anybody has ever contacted the department successfully asking where their application is?

Seems to be a luck of draw on when applicants are getting tests, as some in December 2020 are getting tests and others in October/November are yet to receive them despite being in same testing offices.

Mostly it just feels like I am being impatient but wondering if anybody has ever contacted them regarding this?
