You may become a citizen of Australia in one of three possible ways. These are:

By birth: You automatically become an Australian citizen if you were born here and one or both of your parents is an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia.

By descent: If you were born overseas and one of your parents held Australian citizenship at your date of birth, then you are eligible to be registered as an Australian citizen.

By grant: If you are a non-citizen of Australia you can apply to become an Australian citizen. You must meet several requirements, which include:

you are 16 years of age


you have lived in lawfully in Australia for at least 4 years


you have lived in Australia for at least 12 months as a permanent resident


you are of good character


  you have a good knowledge of the English language


you have a satisfactory knowledge of your responsibilities and privileges as a citizen


you intend to reside and work in Australia, or maintain a close and continuing connection  with the country if granted citizenship


Note: If you have spent more than 12 months in the last 4 years outside Australia or 3 months in the last 12 months outside Australia, you will no longer meet the residence requirements for citizenship.

As an Australian citizen you may live and work in Australia freely and permanently with no restrictions placed upon you.


To find out more please contact Mr. Stewart Coulson on (02) 9264 4654 to begin your Australian citizenship application.
