New citizen question

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Had my ceremony on at Belrose on the Sydney Northern beaches a couple of weeks ago. Can’t thank you all enough for the advice and support on my  5 year journey via PR to citizen.

 I don’t have an Australian Passport yet just my UK passport (although I will apply for an Australian Passport in due course). I have to travel to NZ in August on my UK passport, I presume my citizenship will show up on the border control computers when I land back in Sydney or do I need to undertake any other steps?

You need to get an Australian passport as Aussie citizens cannot travel in and out of Australia on a foreign passport. As an Australian citizen you no longer have a visa in your UK passport. Yes, your details will be in the systems, but expect an amount of hassle in both directions if you haven't sorted out the passport.
