Citizenship documents - please help

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I have just been scheduled in for a citizenship test and from the letter I noticed that I have to urgently address two things:

- change of circumstances. I have changed address since I put forward my application and forgot to tell the department. Can I do it now and still go to my scheduled appointment? It’s scheduled for mid-July

- ID documents. The letter says you need to bring “at least three documents that collectively show your photograph, signature, current residential address, date of birth, birth name and gender”

The problem is I only have the drivers licence because my foreign passport only show the suburb name under the residential address, and is not even current as I have moved (see above)

 

OMG what do I do?? Should I make a proof of age card? What happens if it doesn’t arrive in time? And what about my change of address is that going to affect my appointment date?

I might have another hiccup about proving my identity: I live in a share house so there is no rental contract and no bill under my name is that a problem?

It's "collectively show", passports don't normally show the address. The drivers license would have the photo, signature, address and date of birth (but not birth name or possible gender), the passport would have your photo, signature, date of birth, birth name and gender. So you only need one other document that has any or some of the above. Medicare/ATO letter to your address?
