How it works




When can I apply for citizenship in Australia?

There are currently six main requirements which you need to fullfill before you are eligible to apply for Australian citizenship.

You have to

  • pass a stand-alone English test, involving reading, writing, listening and speaking;
  • have lived in Australia as a permanent resident for at least four years;
  • show the steps you have taken to integrate into and contribute to the Australian community. Examples would include evidence of employment, membership of community organisations and school enrolment for all eligible children.

In addition, new requirments limit the number of times an applicant can fail the citizenship test to three and introduce an automatic fail for applicants who cheat during the citizenship test.

You will find an overview on the requirements here:  Become an Australian citizen


What is the test on Australian Values

The test will be designed to demonstrate appreciation of Australian values, with potential questions on respect for women and children regarding child marriage, female genital mutilation and domestic violence. For the first time ever, domestic violence, gang related activity and organised crime associations will be included in more for forensic police checks. The government claims that the new test would also look more thoroughly into people’s history for even minor offences which were inconsistent with Australian values such as social welfare fraud and abuse.
