    Once you have been a perm res for 4 years you can apply. From application to citizenship ceremony takes about 6 - 12 months.

     

    Sorry, but got to correct you there, time spent as temp res also counts. Taken from DIAC website

     

    "4 years LAWFUL residence in Australia. This period must include 12 months as a perm res immediately before submitting an application for Australian citizenship

     

    AND

     

    Abscences from Australia of no more than 12 months in total in the 4 years prior to application, including not more than 90 days in the 12 months immediately prior to the application"

     

    Hope this helps clear this up.
