$123.6 million for Australia’s New Citizenship Test Budget Media Release Tuesday, 8 May 2007 The Australian Government’s new citizenship test will play a key part in maintaining our national identity. The citizenship test will require applicants for citizenship to have an understanding of the values, traditions, institutions and history of our great nation and will assist people wishing to become Australian citizens to maximise the opportunities available to them and contribute to Australia’s future success as a nation. The 2007-08 Budget provides funding of $123.6 million over five years to deliver the Australian Government’s new citizenship test, to be introduced in 2007. The citizenship test resource booklet and audio-visual materials will assist prospective citizens to prepare for the test. Test centre sites will be established across Australia. Many Australians would agree that citizenship is a privilege not a right. A new booklet providing information about Australia and our way of life will be distributed to permanent visa applicants and made available to temporary visa applicants. Permanent and long-term temporary visa applicants will be required to sign a statement that acknowledges they will respect the Australian way of life and abide by Australian laws before a visa will be granted. People who come to Australia do so because they see this as a land of great opportunity, with many social and economic benefits. As Australians, we have not only an opportunity, but also a responsibility, to help new arrivals make the most of the opportunities life in Australia has to offer.
