    I lodged my Citizenship application last 15 Feb 2020... di pa gumagalaw, until now 'Received' pa din...

    Not sure kung dahil yan sa pandemic or normal turn-around time lang yung ganun?

    i read somewhere na tests will resume by July. so possibly, may test date invite ka na soon.

    Hello po, i don't know if this is the right place to ask my question about citizenship application. We're about to lodge our application in 2 months time, what are the requirements that I should be careful to present? Do i have to take IELTS? Thank you.

    Not sure kung dito nga ang question mo, pero sagutin ko na rin.

    Requirements: Original copy ng passport mo, birth certificate, marriage cert if married, Proof of identity na may address (Driver License, Utility Bills under your name), NBI Clearance or PCC sa mga countries na pinuntahan mo after mo ma PR na nagexceed ng 12 months (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    Di kelangan ng IELTS.

    Ang alam ko pwede ka mag try mag fill up para makita mo yong mga questions dun sa form.... pero di mo masusubmit (ewan ko lang kung nagbago na to).... Nag-apply ako around Oct last year.

    You can lodge on Oct, Not even sure if you can fill the forms as early as now... You can try but as far as I know you won't be able to submit if you are not yet eligible.

    Thanks! Not sure kung council pa rin ang nag-facilitate since the email was from Department of Home Affairs, but we're under Logan City Council in QLD.

    Thanks! Malamang this week na invite mo, and if kung tulad nung samin, be ready for your ceremony next week! Sobrang bilis lang ng ceremony, no fanfare, nothing fancy at all, pero sobrang saya pa rin =)

    Btw, tip lang. Make sure na yung ID na ipe-present mo (whether passport or driver license) shows the exact name as shown in your application. Yung sa partner ko kse, walang middle name sa driver license nya so nagkandarapa pa kami to get the passport. Buti na lang sa bahay lang!

    eg. full name is john paul cruz, sa DL its john p cruz

    but hey congratulations again! :) graduate na

    Thanks! Malamang this week na invite mo, and if kung tulad nung samin, be ready for your ceremony next week! Sobrang bilis lang ng ceremony, no fanfare, nothing fancy at all, pero sobrang saya pa rin =)

    Btw, tip lang. Make sure na yung ID na ipe-present mo (whether passport or driver license) shows the exact name as shown in your application. Yung sa partner ko kse, walang middle name sa driver license nya so nagkandarapa pa kami to get the passport. Buti na lang sa bahay lang!

    alrighty thanks for this tip. Buti na lang both passport and ID namin walang problem. sana :D

    sana soon na ang ceremony haha. congrats uli

    @Captain_A wala naman. Bukod sa magbasa and magcheck ng update sa mga forum :D medyo nakakastress pero nagpakabusy lang ako and hininto yong pagcheck... Nagulat na lang ako nung biglang dumating yong Test invite... supposedly May 25 pero namove ko agad, so after one week lang exam na :)

    basa basa lang and wag masyado magpastress sa paghintay haha kasi nakakasira ng ulo hahahaha... nabasa ko nga, naintay nga natin yong 4 years before mag apply ng Citizenship, ilang buwan e sisiw lang satin.

    Document submitted base sa naalala ko:

    • copy of our birth certificate, and marriage certificate for my wife (name change)
    • copy of passport: details page and page kung saan natatakan ka ng first entry
    • copy of AU driver license
    • copy of utility bill (i provided internet, pero di naman chineck)

    Additional to be submitted:

    NBI clearance di na kami kumuha di narin kami hiningan, depende ito kung gano ka katagal sa Pinas from the day na nagrant ka ng PR visa...

    Yan lang maalala ko. You need to bring all original documents on interview/test appointment mo.

    Sana makatulong :)
