Clear the backlog of thousands of Australian citizenship applications asap

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Please clear the backlog of thousands of Australian citizenship applications as soon as possible. The processing timeframe of this type of application used to be 3 to 4 months. Due to the backlog, the processing time has now been changed to 12 to 15 months as per the latest update, 18 January 2018 (for month ending 31 December 2017)

Despite clearing the backlog, every update of processing time extends the citizenship processing time by a month. If this trend follows, the processing time will go up to 2 years.

As summer is approaching in few months in North America, Europe and Asia, thousands of applicants would have travel plans to visit these areas either on holidays or to see the family and friends, however they are stuck here and waiting for their citizenship application to be processed.

We urge the immigration department to look into this matter urgently and resolve the issue as soon as possible.
