Australian Citizenship

Australia confers citizenship to loyal, talented and good character migrants via various pathways. Some of them lead to citizenship via permanent residency first and others with provisional visas. In the many cases that FBP handles, if you are a permanent resident of Australia and meet the other eligibility requirements, you might be able to apply for Australian citizenship by conferral.

Alternatively, Australian citizenship can also be passed on by descent if a child was born outside Australia and at least one parent was an Australian citizen when the child was born. Australian citizenship is a dream come true moment for any migrant who aspires to live a life of comfort and security.

The conferring of the Australian Citizenship is the last and the final step in your Aussie immigration journey. This is the time when you can have rights equal to all fellow Australians. After making the Australian Citizenship pledge, you are entitled to every right and come under the Australian governing law.

Making a promise

At your citizenship ceremony, you will make the Australian citizenship pledge. You promise to remain loyal to Australia and its people and to share and uphold Australia’s:

  • Democratic beliefs
  • Rights
  • Liberties
  • Laws

Australia is a democracy. You can freely elect representatives to run the country and make laws on your behalf.

Our democratic beliefs, rights and liberties

  • Parliamentary democracy: The people you elect as representatives are answerable to the public for their decisions.
  • Rule of law: All Australians are equal in the eyes of the law. No person or group gets preferential treatment.
  • Living peacefully: We prefer discussion, peaceful persuasion and democracy. We do not use violence to bring about change.
  • Respect for all individuals: We treat all Australians with dignity and respect. No matter their beliefs, traditions and background.
  • Compassion: We always show a spirit of ‘mate ship’. We come together to help and support each other during times of need.

Freedoms for citizens

  • Freedom of speech and expression – You are free to say what you want on any subject, without harming others. You must also respect how other Australians think or express themselves.
  • Freedom of association – You are free to join any:
    • Political party
    • Trade union
    • Religious group
    • Cultural group
    • Social group
    • You can refuse to join a group if you do not want to join a group
  • Freedom of religion and secular government – You are free to follow any religion or not, as long as you do not break any laws.

Equality in Australia

Our laws make sure no one is treated differently because of race, gender, disability or age.

    • Can work and go to school

    • Can join the defence and police forces
    • Are treated fairly and equally in court
    • Enrol to vote

Dual citizens or nationals

Many Australians are citizens of 2 or more countries. This means a person may be a citizen of Australia and of another country at the same time. They can hold:

  • A foreign passport
  • An Australian passport

Not all countries allow dual citizenship. If you think you might be a dual citizen, check with the other country’s embassy or consulate.

Australian citizens may become a dual national: 

  • If a parent is a citizen of another country
  • Through marriage to a citizen of another country
  • If a permanent resident becomes an Australian citizen and keeps their previous citizenship
  • If an Australian citizen becomes a citizen of another country and keeps their Australian citizenship
  • If a child is born overseas and a parent is an Australian citizen (the child may become a citizen of that country by birth)
  • You may not receive the full Australian consular service as a dual citizen in another country if you do not enter that country on your Australian passport.

As an Australian citizen, you must use your Australian passport to:

  • Leave and re-renter Australia
  • An Australian passport is proof of your Australian citizenship when travelling. If you try to enter Australia without an Australian passport, you may experience difficulties at the border.
