Australian citizenship is a certificate that proves you are a lawfully recognised national of Australia and have the right to live in the country. To become an Australian citizen (by conferral), you will have to be an Australian Permanent Resident, apply and sit an Australian Citizenship interview and pass the Australian Citizenship test.

Alternatively people born overseas to a parent who is, or was, an Australian citizen, and for Australian parents to register a child born overseas, citizenship by decent can also be applied for.

There are specific requirements to be met, and a Registered Migration Agent can assist in detailing what these are.
