OH and I had the test on Monday. She got 95% and I got 100%. Her application was approved the same day but I am still waiting.

My application updated to “approved” today, now the wait for our ceremony invite.

I think you would be eligible in October - you have to have not had more than 3 months absence in the last 12 months.  If you go back without getting citizenship and want to return, you have to apply for a resident return visa.  This is harder to achieve the longer you are away and you need to identify your strong ties to Australia.  I would certainly apply for this at least prior to leaving as it can take several months to grant.  +

Citizenship ceremony invite received for Australia Day. 13 months from application to ceremony.

This is about the same timeline for a family friend too.   Not long now Bristle!

Hi we applied for citizenship in Oct 2017.

Partner and two kids under 16.

We had our interview and test yesterday 28/08/18.

All was ok just waiting now to be accepted and the ceremony hopefully.

Was a weird feeling after waiting that long to have finally completed it all.

Hopefully won’t be too low by a wait.

 

Hi my wife and I took our test in July 18

 and we still haven't had a letter of acceptance.
