Hi,

My wife has submitted a citizenship application along with our 10 years old son last month and still, there is no response except the receipt acknowledgement.

Some people have suggested us not to call them for an update otherwise our application will go down under the pile, is this true? Do you think that as they are discussing the citizenship law in parliament; therefore, there is no response?

Hi there, looking at the current processing times citizenship applications are taking approx 88 days from lodgement to decision.

Your current timing appears to be within this range so I would not be too concerned just yet! :)

All the best

Ah ic.. Then it's cool!. In the meanwhile, I found an article related to my question:

http://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/punjabi/en/article/2017/06/27/over-81000-citizenship-applications-awaiting-processing

So, there is a massive backlog

Thanks a heap for the prompt reply. I have been following you guys for many many years and that's for a reason :)
