Question How long does Citizenship process take?

Hi everyone,

This is probably a 'how long is a piece of string' question but any rough ideas on how long it takes to get Citizenship granted? We are in Sydney, on a PR visa (came here originally...

Re: For all those who miss British sweeties

Also, another shop I'm liking is "Sugar Fix" - there's one underneath the Sydney City "Myer" (down in the food court) as well as one up at Warringah Mall. I think they have an online shop too.

Re: blu rays uk/oz?

According to my hubby - UK blurays will play on an Australian machine and vice versa.

There are only 3 regions for blurays and the UK & Australia are in the same one.

If you were using a UK-issued chip&pin card, then no, you wouldn't have been prompted to do chip&pin - from my experience, you have to sign if you're using a card from overseas (and when I was back...

Re: Can I take a cab anywhere anytime by a call from my mobile phone? or not?

I've never heard of having to "notify" a cab firm of your intent to use them!
