Citizenship Ceremony (Over a year to arrange)
 
We finally got a date for ours:thumbsup:...More than a full year after becoming elligible!!! 4th November we become proper Ocker.

For the record:
1 month - Until first available date
(5 minutes - to take the test)
1 month - getting round to starting the forms / getting photos (over Xmas)
1 month - finding someone to vouch for us
1 month - getting that person to do it again as we forgot to give them daugther's birth certificate
2 months to get acceptance letter (just 2 weeks for my wife)
2 months between acceptance and local council being notified and informing us (I rang them or who knows when we would have found out)
3 months - until first available ceremony
1 month - delay as we are away on first available date.

Still, its not as if we are planning on going anywhere:D

Relax, the test is easy. You must be in the same area as Amazulu so you will probably have your ceremony before me!
