Hi All

If you're intending to apply for citizenship before the new rules take place on 1 July, this is our place. Let us share our experiences, keep each other informed, help and encourage one another. I'm sure you know that the wait is between 12 to 14 months. Dito po tayo magdamayan.

For those who have already applied, please share your timeline:

1. Date Applied:
2. City/Council Area:
3. Online / Paper:
4. Acknowledgement Email:
5. Citizenship Test e-mail:
6. Date of the Citizenship Test:
7. Approval letter:
8. Date of ceremony:

We learn from each other especially from complications or special situations that others encountered and resolved. So, if you can add kung mayroong mga ganitong drama sa application ninyo so that others can learn from your experiences.

Me and my partner (same sex) will lodge our application by the first week of June but we're already looking at preparing our application.

Welcome mga batchmates! :D
Happily living in Geelong :)

    Hi all, just asking if we have to provide evidence of residency for all the years of residency in Australia? We will be submitting our documents this coming 10th April (our 4th yr in Australia), here is our situation:
    - we didn't have any formal documents (e.g. utility bills, rent certificate, etc.) from 10th April 2014 to 3rd May 2014 as we are just living in a friends house and just sharing bills from them.
    - I have payslips and Bank statements (savings acct) starting from 14th April 2014 but I don't know if they are valid
    - I started applying a phone line (Telstra) on 3rd May 2014 so I got utility bill from that day forward.

    Should we still continue my application on the 10th of April or go on on the 3rd of May? Thanks in advance.
    December 2011 - Took IELTS (7.0W, 7.0R, 6.5L, 6.0S, OBS-6.0)
    July 2013 - Submitted VETASSESS (ANZSCO 234111)
    Nov 14, 2013 - Positive Outcome (VETASSESS)
    Nov 17, 2013 - EOI Submitted
    Nov 28, 2013 - SS Invitation from Qld

    @ajet02 proof of residency this is for your current address (rental agreement etc ,utility bills_ ... While for evidence of initial entry or lawful entry use your immigration stamp in your passport when you first enter Australia with valid resident visa. ( Citizenship - Evidence of first arrival in Australia ) .
