    @wizardofOz di ka pa nakapag ceremony?

    di pa bro...... waiting pa din ng invite.. the next ceremony schedule dito sa Brisbane is 18-Mar, so I should be receiving an invitation sometime this week if ever makakasama ako doon

    Hi @wizardofOz , how long is your wait for the test?

    Lodged 15Feb2020
    Test Date 20Oct2020 (requested Thai PCC, submitted 13Nov2020)
    Approval 16Nov2020
    Ceremony ~ Waiting ~

    Hello @wizardofOz, during the test nag request sila ng additional PCC from you?
    did you have to submit the original by post or did you just send the scanned copy?
    Thank you and congrats sa approval!

    Yeah during interview hiningi... basta ang sinabi lang... "I think you still have an overseas penal clearance to submit (hindi sinabi which country, though tumira ako sa Pinas and Thailand)..... but you can still take the citizenship tests.... once you get your clearance, upload it to your Immi Account, and then email us once you've done so... "

    So hindi ko na sinubmit yung original hardcopy ng NBI and Thai PCC, inupload ko lang sa Immi Account.. then inemail ko yung DHA Brisbane na na-submit ko na... then after a day I checked my Immi Account.. Approved na status.... then after a week may nareceive akong letter by post from DHA Canberra confirming yung approval ng citizenship application..

    ok salamat sa info @wizardofOz !

    Just had my citizenship exam and interview. Sa application ko, wala akong nilagay na middle name pero since yung passport at IDs ko may middle name at consistent yung mga presented docs inupdate nlang application ko at nilagyan ng middle name. Hopefully, di na magask ng additiinal docs. Yung exam madali naman very helpful yung citizenship app.

    Ask ko lang, gaano kaya katagal bago magupdate yung immiaccount or before sila magsend ng update?

    Thanks

    My wife got an approval now but mine is still received. Not sure why, the only reason that i could find is my answer to the question "if i have plans to travel overseas?", and i said no. Then she asked me again what if the border is open and i answered "might be". Just paranoid here

    Nung maging 'Approved' na yung status sa Immi Account... after 1 week may na-receive akong letter sa mail from DHA (Canberra ata sya and not from my local council)... 'Dear Blahblah.... Notification of approval of Australian citizenship..."

    dun sa letter nakalagay na you will receive another letter from the local council or the Department for ceremony invitation

    You can download "Australia Citizenship - Our Common Bond" document in the immi website. There are tons of apps available for practice as well. The app I used was Citizenship Test. It's like a mock-up of the exam and made it easier for me to memorize everything.

    So I have spoken to someone sa 131 880 to follow-up my citizenship ceremony..

    Ang sabi sakin is currently 90% of application is waiting up to 7 mos from approval to ceremony -- which is what is in their website for processing times...

    then sabi nya 10% may need to wait longer.

    tinanong ko what is causing the long waiting time... na I'd understand approval can take time, pero bakit magtatagal na naghihintay lang ng invitation for ceremony?

    marami syang sinabi na like covid daw, number or applicants..

    anyway, tinanong ko din kelan na dapat mag-follow-up kung wala pa ding na-rereceive na invitation after 7mos...

    mag-wait daw ng up to 12mos from approval kung wala pa din, by then na lang mag-follow-up...

    hindi nalang ako nagsalita

    May way po ba na makapag mag-followup ng ceremony schedule?

    Ang sabi kasi sa approval letter 'your citizenship ceremony will be scheduled within six months from the time your application is approved...."

    Last 16-Nov-2020 pa na-approve yung citizenship application ko, until now walang invitation for ceremony...

    May isesend ba silang approval letter aside from status changebsa immiaccount? Pagapproved na ba sa immi sure ng approved ka?

    Nung maging 'Approved' na yung status sa Immi Account... after 1 week may na-receive akong letter sa mail from DHA (Canberra ata sya and not from my local council)... 'Dear Blahblah.... Notification of approval of Australian citizenship..."

    dun sa letter nakalagay na you will receive another letter from the local council or the Department for ceremony invitation

    Thanks. Hintayin nalang namin ang letter. :) Nakahinga na kami ng maluwag at approved na status namin.

    hi all, if more than a month after ng exam no approval yet, kelangan na po ba i-followup? Ano po yung pinakamatagal na narinig nyo? Thanks!

    Nakalagay within an hr to 2 yrs. Kakausap ko lang sa officemate ko. Ang sabi niya yung sa misis niya after a yr sya naapprove after exam. Then, yung sa friend nila 2 yrs ang hinintay. Hope mareceive mo na rin soon yung approval status mo. Ang hirap maghintay.

    yup..super yung 2 years.. i think it's more of na-neglect nila yung application or mabagal lang talaga. So far nabasa ko sa ibang forum na random lang minsan, nilalagay nila yung application sa isang pile for 'further screening'. Longest na nbasa ko na ng-wait ng approval is 8 weeks. Yung iba after magpost sa forums then after a day naapprove. I called immi earlier and sabi nila within 14 months yung timeframe, which is weird dahil may iba within an hour approved na. Sa centrelink kmi nag-exam, i think mas mabagal cguro paggaling dun. Will wait and see..

    After 10months+, naka sched narin kmi for exam. Sa mga nakapag exam recently, may binigay ba na reading materials? Or may app ba tungkol sa Oz citizenship exam na pwede mapagpraktisan? Salamat po

    You can download "Australia Citizenship - Our Common Bond" document in the immi website. There are tons of apps available for practice as well. The app I used was Citizenship Test. It's like a mock-up of the exam and made it easier for me to memorize everything.

    Thanks po sa direction @Jacraye :-)

    Yeah, i know the feeling. Yung tipong maya-maya ichecheck mo yung status. Nakakapraning.

    May friend ako sa Brisbane na kakaapprove lang ng PR, 2 yrs sya naghihintay ng approval nung finollow up niya kinabukasan naapprove na sya.

    Download the book from the immi website. You can also listen to the podcast meron sa apple podcast so you can listen from your phone and meron din sa website. I printed the book and listen to the podcast while reading. Para mas maretain sa memory ko yung info. mapapansin mo lang na yung ibang paragraphs sa book, hindi sinasbi sa podcast so make sure to read those parts too. Based on experience, all exam questions are in the book so make sure you read and understand. I read the book and listened to the podcast siguro mga 5 times before the exam day. kayang-kaya mo yan!
