Please share the application date, applicant state, council, test invitation date, confirmation date and ceremony dates in here.

Thanks

Asking them won't help as they will just tell you to wait (and won't give you any information) until at least the current processing time has gone by, which at the moment is 90% of applications are finalised within 16 months from the date you applied.

You might find that your application is processed very quickly and you have your test, then your approval, then your local government (council, shire or city) puts you on the list for the ceremony) all within 6 months, but that is not common.

It wouldn't be unusual to wait 6 to 9 months for the interview/test, another month or two for the approval, and another few months waiting for the ceremony. Or it could be a bit longer that that, too. 16 months from application date to ceremony is the current benchmark, although they are doing 75% or applications within 14 months.

Hi Guys,

I am applying for Citizenship by Conferral. When I upload a PDF file including multiple pages, I receive the following message:
In line with the department's requirements, the document provided has been converted to an acceptable format that now appears as displayed below. Confirm that the image and any text displayed is clear for the department to use in identifying the applicant.
Each page within the provided PDF file has been converted to a separate JPG image.

I am wondering if you guys know why it converts to individual JPEG files? And is it normal?

I really appreciate your reply. thanks.

Default Australia Citizenship Application

Hi All,

For applying to Australian Citizenship, the requirements state 4 years of residency in past 4/5 odd years.

In my case, I have been legally living in Australia for 4 past years continuously but out of the those years , initial 1.5 years were on temporary residency visa (457) and the rest on permanent residency. Would I be still eligible to apply for citizenship or would I need to stay for 4 years on Permanent residency before applying ?

Also any guidance to the citizenship test and process itself would be helpful.

Thanks,

R

Under the present rules you are eligible if you have not traveled out of Australia Much in the last 4 years

You can check your eligibility in the Citizenship calculator online

Submit your application ASAP, as there maybe a change of rules again, making you ineligible for another 1.5 years

The process is quite simple

Cheers
