Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

17 months since lodging citizenship application till now nganga

I tried to call the home affairs number but all they can tell me is that the processing time is 19-20 months now. Last may it was 22 months. They don't even bother to take details anymore like the reference number. So parang walang kwenta.

My wife who took the exam only one day ahead of me are already citizens together with my son. We applied for the citizenship separately which was a mistake on my side but I think it is a blessing in disguise as well because they might not have been citizens this time around.

I am not sure if I should make an FOI request or make a feedback baka it will be here anytime soon. Anyone here made these efforts to follow up and has it worked to your advantage?

    Hi KG2,

    Siguro you can try na mag apply ng FOI, para siguro magkaroon ng a bit of an idea sa stage ng application mo. My husband requested FOI, 2 weeks after ng test namin kasi naapprove yung akin, minutes after the test pero ung sa kanya hindi agad na approve. I dont know kung nag work yun kasi after a month pa after ng FOI na approve application nya.
    I am not sure if you read the pomsinoz forum, ung iba doon humihingi ng tulong sa mga local MPs nila.
