That's great news Sue and Billy, we also are now citizens - had our ceremony on Australia Day, it was a fab day. So glad your boys are all happy now.

You can apply for citizenship after four years in the country, the last year has to have been as a pr. I will have been here nearly six when I can apply, but only been pr since November. :-)
