Decline in the Waiting time
The recent figures of the Home Affairs Department reveal that there is a decline in the waiting time to get the citizenship in Australia
. There is a major decrease in the queues and a significant increase in approving citizenship in the last year. Many seekers received the citizenship within ten months and are the beneficiaries of a speedy application process. Owing to this healthy and positive development people are encouraged to opt for the online portal and check their rescheduling of test date. This will also help to get an early test date.
Approvals increase in an impressive way
He attributed these impressive results to a wide range of reforms that were implemented by the Home Affairs Department. These included establishing Task Forces within the Home Affairs Department to focus on complex cases, system enhancements for automating processes, and an investment of $9 million for recruiting and training extra staff for dealing with the applications efficiently. Owing to these measures, the number of citizenship using the conferral applications readily available has decreased considerably.
This year the figure is 222,800, which was 250,000 last year. There will be a continuation of the trend and the numbers will decline, he added.
Waiting time in citizenship drops and approvals increase
221,695 applicants still wait for an outcome of their application of Australian citizenship
even though there is a reduced waiting time.
The Home Affairs Department states that the waiting time for conferral citizenship has declined to 16 months from 20 months for 75 percent applicants.
