ABCDiamond – An Australian Citizen.
After two and a half decades, the person behind the ABCDiamond persona became an Australian Citizen on 21st December 2011.
- The Citizenship test was taken on 28th November 2011.
- The Citizenship Ceremony was held at 10:45 am on 21st December 2011.
- The Australian Passport Application was lodged at 11:55 am on the same day.
- The completed passport became ready for collection at 2.55 pm on the same day.
Anyone in the Australian passport office can now put a name to the ABCDiamond persona, as very few people can get all those three things happening on the same day.
Just 4 hours and 10 minutes from the Citizenship ceremony to having the passport available for pickup. That must be nearly a record.
However, it did take 25 years and 11 days from first migrating to Australia to becoming an Australian Citizen.
