    Hello. :) I'm almost about to apply for citizenship. Nakita ko sa requirements ang Form 1195 which is the identity declaration form. Problem lang, I literally don't know anyone from the list. Anyone here who had the same problem?

  • se29mse29m PerthPosts: 2,119Member, Moderator

    @fully yung gp nyo or dentist or even chemist. Had the same issue, gp ko was a pr from Germany, dentist ko was new zealander so I ended up with my property manager na law practitioner.

    @se29m Thanks for the reply! Have never been to a GP/doctor, never got sick here. Nagtanong na ako sa property manager ko asking if they are JP or anyone from their office is a JP, pero wala. I might know a "Finance Company officer" but I'm not so sure as "Finance Company" is vague. My colleagues are engineers, but I doubt they are EA members.

    I've read somewhere that they had this sort of waived, parang colleagues na lang ang pumirma but with stat dec. Anyone here who na nag-try ding magpa-waive nito in a similar manner?

    Hello po... I'm back after almost a 5-year hiatus!!

    Tanong lang.. I am currently applying for Ctizenship..

    Ito po timeline ko from PR Grant

    06-Dec-2014 - PR Visa Granted
    13-Dec-2014- Initial Entry

    After ko mag Initial Entry, bumalik pa ko ulit sa Thailand (where I was working) and nag-stay pako doon until 22-Dec-2015 (almost 12 months stay).. then umuwi muna saglit ng Pinas.. then Big Move ko to Australia was 07-Feb-2016

    Question ko..

    Ire-require kaya ako mag-submit ng Thai Police Clearance and NBI Clearance for my citizenship application? Sasabihin/I-eemail ba ko ng Case Officer regarding doon?

    Thanks po sa sasagot!

    @wizardofOz Kapag nagstay ka ng 12mos sa Thailand, then most likely irerequire ka to get a Thai Police Clearance. Mas maganda na Iaccomplish mo na kesa antayin na irequest sayo kasi kapag inantay mo baka madelay application mo.

  • CasseyCassey Melbourne, AustraliaPosts: 2,790Member, Moderator

    @tisay Hi, may katagalan ang citizenship application ngayon. Yung iba is nararandom check and just like you, they have to wait for years. Have you checked kung completed na yung documents mo? Isa ring reason yan, bakit tumatagal application. Have you submitted whatever document/s they’ve asked you to submit?

    saw this..

    You must understand what it means to be an Australian citizen. To assess this, most applicants will sit the citizenship test.

    Some applicants do not have to sit the test
