Australian Citizenship

Applying for Australian citizenship by descent–Children Born Overseas to Australian Citizens

You may be eligible for Australian citizenship by descent if you were born outside Australia and one (or both) of your parents was also an Australian citizen at the time of your birth. Check your eligibility before you apply online.

Citizenship by Decent applications are processed in Australia.

Apply online via the Department of Home Affairs website.

If the application is within the advertised citizenship processing times, requests for priority processing will only be considered if exceptional compelling and compassionate circumstances exist and you have an imminent scheduled flight to Australia.

If this is the case, please contact the Global Service Centre.

Applying for Evidence of Australian citizenship

An Australian citizenship certificate is an official document that shows that a person is an Australian citizen. If you are already an Australian citizen and need proof, you can apply to get a certificate, replace one that has been lost, destroyed or damaged, or can request a new certificate if you have legally changed your name.  Check the requirements  before you apply online.
