RRV and Citizenship Application

bl_blitzbl_blitz MelbournePosts: 141Member

Hi Guys,
Mag papahelp lang po sana. Ok lang po ba mag lodge ng RRV application kahit naglodge ka ng citizenship application sa immiaccount?
May nkaranasan na po ba same case? Kasi alam ko po aabutin ang citizenship application ng more than 1 year tapos ang PR visa ko po e mag eexpire na in 10months. Gusto po sana umuwi ng pinas habang inaantay citizenship at kung sakali expire na ang PR. Thank you in advance.

praise God

    Yes it's best for you to get RRV if you are leaving AU and returning past expiry ng current PR visa mo. We are currently in NSW and lodged our Citizenship Application last March 2019, till now we haven't heard anything from our application, mag 9 months na. Based sa trend it will take 17 months from application to approval then another 5 months from approval to ceremony. After the ceremony, you'll have to apply for AU passport and looking at your timeline of travel, definitely more than 10 months.

    Yes okay lang. They have different TRN naman. I have an ongoing Partner Visa Sponsorship (820) along with my Citizenship without a problem. But It's advised that when you are planning to travel and have lodged na your Citizenship application, notify DoHA with timings, this is when they make a decision they won't do your ceremony/test whilst you are outside AU.

    parang hindi kasama sa given names ung middle name. Kasi kahit sa passport details nten nakalagay given name.. tpos nka indicate mismo middle name.. pero sa form ng citizen given names lang. wala sinabi middle name. Ako hindi ko isasama.

    @butterfly @bunnyhunter Yung sa akin, inilagay ko lang yung First Name sa Given name without the middle name. Kahit na hindi siya isama, ilalagay pa rin nila yung middle name sa Citizenship Certificate.
