Citizenship Application residency starting date

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I used to come to Au on a visitor's visa back 3 years ago, which I counted as my first arrival date.

While I got my PR 2 years ago, and stayed in Australia since then. but there's a 2 months gap between my visitor's visa expiring date and PR granted date.

My question is , which date should I consider as my lawful residency starting date?  date of arrival after PR granted or my Visitor's Visa?

Thanks in advance!

As long as you were not unlawful in Australia, you can use the visitor visa date.
