Regarding Birth Certificate for Citizenship application.

Can we produce different Birth Certificate to what was being used during Permanent Resident Visa processing ?

Planning to get new one from Municipal authorities in India for myself. Have used old format in PR application.

Hi guys, how about the trend for NSW ?> It looks like till Dec 23 got approved according to Immitracker. My lodgement date is Jan 3, 2022. When can we expect a test invite?.
I applied in November 2021 and still no invite yet. I think people who chose Sydney CBD got test invites per tracker. It depends on where you applied from.

Does anyone get any idea, if the labor comes in power, would the processing speed up?
First tell me that Labour will come to power ?
Cheers

You don’t need birth certificate for citizenship application. Your passport is enough.

Not always the case. Depends on the CO. In my case they asked to produce birth certificate or the year 10 mark sheet showing date of birth and one parents name on it. CO did not accept passport as proof of date of birth.

Hi,
I been contacted by case officer after 1 year request more documents.
which they ask me CONFIRMATION OF MY PRINCIPAL PREFERRED NAME
Example:
officer wrote
I note that all documents provided are in your name: ABCDEFGH URXYZ Dob. 01/01/1985
I note that you have listed your Principal preferred name as: abcdefgh URXYZ Dob:
01/01/1985
If you wish to list your name as abcdefgh URXYZ Dob: 01/01/1985, please update your
Australian Identity card such as Australia driver licence and medicare card to reflect this
name.
Please confirm which name you would like to proceed in naming order ABCDEFGH URXYZ Dob: 01/01/1985 or abcdefgh URXYZ Dob: 01/01/1985

Basically, it's only matter of small and capital letter of my first name.
Anyone has idea how can I confirm my name through any form or Step Dec or just simple email?

Make a word doc and explain what name format you need. If it’s the capitals then mention that otherwise CO has advised to change any of the Australian document to reflect the new format and add that under attach documents.
