The Time for Australian Citizenship is Now
Now is a great time to apply for citizenship.
This is a very exciting time and possibly a goal that has been years in the making.
Secure your future in Australia now – No more visas
There are many benefits to becoming an Australian Citizen:
- You can vote in Australian elections and have a say about how the Australian government impacts you
- You can apply for elected positions within our political system (you do need to be a sole Citizen for federal parliament though).
- You are given preference for any jobs in the Australian Defence Force or Australian Public Service
- You can enter and exit Australia with no restrictions, and stay outside of Australia for as long as you want (Covid dependant at this time)
- You can apply for an Australian passport (which means no more Visas!)
- You can receive help from Australian officials whilst overseas – Consular help
- You can register your children born overseas as Australian citizens.
- You can apply for a government loan to defer University costs.
- You can visit and live in New Zealand without time constraints
- You can adopt children in Australia.
- You can represent Australia in international sport.

Citizenship like all immigration is a personal pathway as it always depends on your background and particular circumstances.
