Australian citizenship processing time drops by 10 per cent

Saskatchewan

The processing time of applications for Australian citizenship came down by 10 percent in 2019, according to the data released by the Australian Department of Home Affairs. The Australian Department has also confirmed that the number of citizenships approved increased during the current year. During the period between 1st July 2018 and 30th April 2019, the number of Australian citizenships granted almost doubled compared to the same time period in the previous year.
Drop in the processing time of Australian citizenship applications mean that 75% of applications will be processed within 18 months as opposed to 20 months. Processing time means the period between the time when the citizenship application is submitted to the time of conferring the citizenship. The Department of Home Affairs observes that the reduction in waiting time is mainly owing to the reforms implemented by the Australia government. The Department of Home Affairs introduced these reforms to streamline the application process for Australian citizenship without compromising on national security or integrity of the application process.
Currently, 220,000 applications for citizenship are waiting to be processed. This number is lower compared to the same point of time last year, when the number of applications was 250000. This is mainly due to the reduction in the processing time. The Department expects that the number of pending applications will come down further in the coming years. For 90 per cent of applications though, the processing time remains unchanged at 23 months.
