Citizenship application processing times

Last updated: 18 January 2018 (for month ending 31 December 2017)

Australian Citizenship application type 75% of applications processed in 90% of applications processed in
Conferral (lodgement to ceremony**) 12 months 15 months
Descent (lodgement to decision) 3 months 5 months
Evidence (lodgement to decision) 26 days 34 days

**A small proportion of applicants for Australian citizenship by conferral are not required to attend a ceremony. For Descent and Evidence applications, allow an additional 10 days for printing and postage of your certificate. If you applied from outside Australia, postage will take longer.

Circumstances that affect processing times

We assess applications on a case-by-case basis, and actual processing times can vary due to individual circumstances including:

  • whether you have lodged a complete application, including all necessary supporting documents
  • how promptly you respond to any requests for additional information
  • how long it takes to perform required checks on the supporting information provided
  • how long it takes to receive additional information from external agencies, particularly in relation to health, character, and national security requirements
  • for permanent migration visa applications, how many places are available in the migration programme
  • for citizenship applications, the time taken to attend a Citizenship Ceremony or receive a Citizenship Certificate.

How to view processing times

You can view current processing times on the page for the specific visa subclass or citizenship type you are applying for.  You should check regularly to ensure you know the current processing times for your visa.

To ensure your application falls within the published processing times, you need to submit a complete application. The checklists provided on ImmiAccount will assist in making sure you include all required documents in your application.
