Isn't it amazing how applications are being processed so quickly now that the elections are over? It wouldn't surprise me if, magically, close to the next election, the processing time for citizenship applications once again becomes close to a year. It took us just under 11 months to get our interview (filed in Jun 2018 and interviewed in May 2019).

Default Help needed for Citizenship application

Hi All,
I need some clarification for the Aussie Citizenship. I am an Indian National.

Is it mandatory to produce a birth certificate for the citizenship? My birth certificate can be generated online and it has the same details as the original one which was issued when i was born.

There is one issue in the Original Birth Certificate.

My name in the Birth Certificate is S John - We all know how Indian authorities can play with your happiness by messing up your name or shortening it.

My name in the passport for example is John Smith. It is fully expanded. So no issues here. I got my PR using my passport, 10th and 12th Marksheet which has John S.

I have also got the Birth certificate from the VFS in Sydney on the basis of passport.

Should i submit the Birth Certificate issues by the VFS or the original Birth certificate where my name is S John? Please guide if anyone has experienced the same.

Getting my name changed to John Smith in my original birth certificate is close to impossible.

Regards
RK

Default need to understand the letter

Hi
I applied for australian citizenship some 2 months back and today i received a letter with name as citizenship letter and telling that "Your Citizenship appointment will be booked in due course. Once your Citizenship
appointment has been booked, you will receive an email or letter notifying you of the
time and location of your Citizenship appointment
".
Just want to understand if it is an acknowledgement mail or would I be getting the date of test shortly?
can anybody clarify

Looks like a new initiative by the department
But for all practical purposes, this is just an acknowledgement of your application , nothing more

Cheers

So to be clear, other then your passport, no other document has your full expanded name of John Smith ?
The VFS certificate is useless

Cheers

Hi Mate,

That's right. None of my Indian documents have my name expanded other than my passport and Pan Card. Didn't realize the mistake of this till I moved outside India.

Also I did provide my 10th Marksheet, 12th Marksheet, Indian Driving License for my PR and it was accepted. Can I provide the same along with the Birth Certificate or get an Affidavit to say the person on the birth certificate and passport are the same? will that help?

The checks at the citizenship process stage is much more stringent then at PR stage

Hopefully you should get through with the existing documents
Try one last time if the birth certificate can be corrected

Cheers

On the side note, I am applying for citizenship soon and this might sound stupid but I juz have to ask coz everyone is getting PCC. Do I need PCC if I have been overseas for 80 days since my PR date?
Hi, would like to check if your friends got citizenship letter before they got the interview date from them?
