5 stuffs you need to do before you do the Citizenship Test 2019:
1, Print out the Citizenship Appointment Letter that the immigration department sent to you.
You will need this email for the client ID, which is an 11-digits number in the email body.
2, Prepare the required documents including:
- at least three documents that collectively show your photograph, signature, current residential address, date of birth, birth name and gender
- Proof of name change, if applicable
- any other identity documents issued by another government that you consider will assist in verifying your identity
- evidence of when you first arrived in Australia and your present country of citizenship
- the documents that were submitted with your application
- documents for any children under 16 years of age included in your application
- official translation to accompany any documents which are not in English (see Translating your documents)
- any other documents that we have requested you to provide.
From my own experience, I used the following docs:
- Driver license original copy/card
- Medicare original copy/card
- Utilities bills original copy. i.e. City council rates, electricity bills, mobile phone bills and so on.
- Passport original copy
- Marriage certificate (yap, I am married)
- Make sure you translate them if they are not in English
3, Make sure you know the location and date time
I know this is a silly one, but I do know some people they cannot attend the test due to a late bus, train or cannot remember which day.
Some people might be worry about the interview, thinking they are tricky and hard. Actually when I was taking my Citizenship Test, I can't even feel it. Why? Because they are just basic conversation between you and the staff, those are very basic conversation, such as:
- How long have you been in Australia
- Do you have any plan staying in Australia
- Any plan for trips, holidays
Relax, just tell them what you thought.
