Excuse me if this has already been asked.
I have only ever held UK citizenship and am now applying for Australian citizenship.
Under "CITIZENSHIP DETAILS" is asks: "Has this applicant ever held citizenship of any country? Include all current and all previous citizenships held." To which I assume I click 'yes' as I currently have UK.
Then it asks me to enter more information like how I got it and when. I choose 'Birth' and then my birthday, but then it has a box asking me for the "Date Ended". Do I just leave this blank?
By marblu69Hi All
Im hoping someone could settle an arguement Im having with my partner re citizenship...she was born in Oz in 1969 and her parents (from overseas) were permanent residents at the time. After 3 months they all moved back overseas and have not returned since. So basically, if I am correct, she is classed as a citizen by birth and she only has to provide her birth certificate to obtain the citizen certificate (she may have this already we are looking for it) and then apply for a passport ? Is this correct ?
My partner thinks that she had to apply for a passport before she reached 16 but I cannot find this written anywhere.
Thanks in advance !
By ManonamissionHi All,
First timer here, so be kind...
I'm a UK resident married to an Aussie Wife, we have been together for 9 years or so. Married for 2.5 Years.
We have one 18month old little boy, with another one on the way. Due around July.
The time has come, and we plan to head back to Aus in December.
From what I can see, we will be able to get the kids Aus citizenship by descent, and this shouldn't cost too much, around £230 plus £95 for Additional newborn.
I, on the other hand, will have to jump through the usual visa hoops and pay around 7k AUD.
The waiting time appears to be around 11 months if applied in the UK and 22months in AUS.
I'm interested in advice to see if there's a better way of doing things as if I apply here and don't get my passport or visa back in time for me to fly in December, then I might be better off flying out on a tourist visa, and then applying to stay as such.
I would also be interested if anyone knows if there's a cheaper or better way of my doing things, as my wife and two kids i will all be citizens, will they still charge me 7k for the privilege, I thought a while back they use to do free or cheaper visa's if you had young children etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
By JPinJPHello there,
I am in the process of applying for my citizenship but I have come across an error while doing my online application through ImmiAccount. One of the items included in the application is the residence eligibility by way of using the residence calculator. I have been here in Australia since 2013 and while I have been deemed eligible and with the requirements "met" using the calculator, this doesn't seem to get me to go ahead with my application.
Has anyone had the same problem?
