Default Australian Citizenship

Hi All
Apologies if this isn’t in the correct thread.
I’m hoping someone can shed some light on the below for me.

I’m a permanent resident in Australia and have been living here for 30 years. I’ve applied for Australian Citizenship in April, but wondering if my chances of getting it approved are quicker than others due to my residency in Australia?

No, I don't think so. My wife got hers about this time last year, and it was between the 75% and 90% times, and she is from Germany, and has been here longer than you!

Processing time is 18-23 months at present, with 225,000 applications on hand.

Are you saying you went from application to an actual Citizenship ceremony in 5 months?

I would find that extremely unlikely.

Or do you mean 5 months to get a test date, or something else?

I will say that we have been lucky that it took us precisely 9 months from the day of application to the citizenship ceremony here in Adelaide
