Citizenship

Australian citizenship is an important step in your migration pathway.

 

Why should I become an Australian Citizen?

 

Becoming an Australian citizen represents a commitment to Australia and its people. It gives a sense of belonging because you can fully participate in all aspects of Australian life. It is also the beginning of your formal membership of the Australian community. 

 

Australian citizenship is a privilege that offers enormous rewards.

 

As a permanent resident of Australia, you have already enjoyed living in a free and democratic society. When you become an Australian citizen, you will have new responsibilities. You will also have a range of new benefits.

 

Responsibilities – what you will give Australia.

 

As an Australian citizen you must:

  • obey the law
  • defend Australia should the need arise
  • serve on a jury if called to do so
  • vote in federal and state or territory elections, and in a referendum

Privileges – what Australia will give you.

 

As an Australian citizen you have the right to:

  • vote in federal and state or territory elections, and in a referendum
  • apply for work in the Australian Public Service or in the Australian Defence Force
  • apply for an Australian passport and re-enter Australia freely
  • receive help from an Australian official while overseas
  • register children born overseas as Australian citizens by descent.
