Australian Citizenship

Australian citizenship is the final step for any applicant looking to live in Australia permanently as an Australian.

Becoming a citizen of Australia is an important decision as it is a recognition that you are making a commitment to Australia, its people and its way of life.

Australian Citizenship Application

There are different applications for citizenship. You may be eligible to apply for Australian citizenship if you are a:

  • spouse or partner of an Australian citizen;

  • migrant to Australia who has obtained permanent residence;

  • New Zealand citizen living in Australia;

  • child of a former Australian citizen;

  • commonwealth Child Migration Scheme arrival;

  • refugee or humanitarian entrant;

  • person born in Papua before independence in 1975;

  • former Australian citizen looking to resume their citizenship;

  • adopted outside Australia by at least one Australian citizen;

  • born overseas to an Australian citizen.

You may need to meet the following requirements to be eligible:

  • be a migrant who is a permanent resident;

  • likely to reside, or continue to reside, in Australia or to maintain a close and continuing association with Australia;

  • satisfy the residence requirement;

  • meet character requirements.

Australian Citizenship test

Most people who apply for citizenship will need to pass a citizenship test to demonstrate that they have a basic knowledge of the English language and an adequate knowledge of Australia – its culture, its customs, its laws and its democratic beliefs and liberties.

Dual Citizenship

Dual citizenship is also a consideration, if the law of the other country permits. Some countries do not recognise dual or multiple citizenship. Since 2002, dual citizenship has been permitted in Australia.
