Default Citizenship application headache

Hi guys!

I arrived in Australia in 2007 on a student visa and got PR last year November. As the requirement for citizenship has been met, I started applying online and the system said, their records shows I am not eligible. I quickly rang the infoline only to be told my student visa expired on the 5th and an application was made on the 8th (meaning, i stayed in Australia for like 3days without a visa. But the application I made for PR was also on the 5th, the same day my visa was meant to expire.

So they told me I am not eligible until November 2014. The problem is, when I took the application forms in, the sheet they gave me is lost.

Just want some advice.
Thanks.

Sounds like your application wasnt accepted until the 8th probably the day they took the fee. Which means you were unlawful for a period. DIAC know when visas expire and new applications are made so there us nit much point trying to argue it.

you might want to get yourself a lawyer as this looks to be a complicated case

A lawyer, you know how much they cost? What do you think they can do? Force the Government to bend the law for one person.
