citizenship by descent and sponsoring

Recommended Posts

Guest erik83

Hi there all!

I ve been looking into moving to Australia and was hopeful that as my mother qualifies for citizenship by descent i would then be able to migrate to australia. I e mailed the Oz high commission about it and they sent me the following message


Dear Eric,


Thank you for your enquiry.


If your mother has spent 2 years in Australia and obtains Citizenship by Descent, then she should be able to sponsor you to become a Citizen by Descent also as long as you met the requirements.


Please see information below.


Registration of Australian Citizenship by Descent



So my question is once my mother has become a citizein by descent (she has no intention of actually moving to australia) will she be able to sponsor me and what is involved in this process?

Thanks and look forward to hearing

Has your mother lived in Australia for two years? If the answer is 'yes' you are eligible for citizenship by descent. If she hasn't you can't - unless you persuade her to now.
