I heard that the citizenship application process takes a long time now (more than 14 months), and by January next year it will be exactly 4 years since I got my PR and living in Australia. A friend of mine said that I can apply now and by the time my application will be assessed, it will be after January, so I can save that time instead of waiting to apply in January. Is that true?

See Eligibility Details

Which states "Permanent residents must:
• have been living in Australia on a valid Australian visa for 4 years immediately before applying which must include the last 12 months as a permanent resident,"
