Citizenship via descent

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest26110

Hi all, I was born in Australia and now live in England. My children have citizenship via descent and have a British and Australian passport. I was wondering if one of my children were to marry an English person here in England, would that person be able to move to Australia if my child was to sponsor them (spouse sponsor). Thanks for any replies.

Yes they'd be able to apply for a spouse visa, but may still be expected to prove the longevity of the relationship


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

They wouldn't even need to get married, living together for twelve months is enough..

It was also explained to me that if my children stayed in UK (they have citizenship by descent) and married a British Citizen..then their children would not have to right to claim Citizenship by descent. That is how I understood it anyway. But now we are in OZ it does not matter.
