You can apply to the Department for naturalization by completing the declaration form, and paying the prescribed fee.
The Department will review your application and give you a decision within 48 hours.
If the Department grants you citizenship, you will receive a certificate of naturalisation.
The Certificate of Naturalisation is a document that tells you how you are treated and will give you details of the citizenship you have acquired.
There are many different ways of obtaining naturalisation certificates.
The application for citizenship will determine whether you qualify for a certificate or not.
The certificate may be for a specific reason, such as naturalisation or citizenship for the same purpose.
You may be eligible for a citizenship certificate when you have lived in Australia for at least five years.
If not, you must apply for a Certificate of Australian Citizenship from the Minister for Naturalisation or Citizenship.
A certificate will be valid for 10 years after your naturalisation certificate expires.
If a naturalisation applicant dies before the certificate expires, you’ll be required to apply again.
You’ll be issued with a certificate upon your death and the naturalisations certificate will continue to be valid.
This certificate will show whether you were eligible for citizenship as a permanent resident or a temporary resident.
If your naturalisations certificates expire, you may have to apply twice for a new certificate.
The first application for a naturalisations citizenship certificate takes place at the Australian Citizenship Centre (ACCC).
The second application takes place in the Department’s Naturalisation Office.
The Naturalisation Act states:You must complete the declaration forms as soon as possible.
Once you’ve completed the declaration, you are required to sign it and return it to the ACCC.
This is where the Naturalisation process begins.
The naturalisation office will then require you to fill out a form to complete the application for naturalisations.
Once the naturalizations office has finished processing your declaration, it will send the certificate to the Minister.
You should then go back to the naturalization office to complete any other forms and submit them to the Naturalization Office.
If all is done correctly, the Naturalisations Office will issue your naturalised Australian citizenship certificate.
If, however, you don’t have the naturalised certificate, you have the option of applying for a further certificate, which will then be valid until you turn 50.
If this is the case, you need not apply for another certificate, as the certificate will expire after you turn 60.
If any of the naturalising documents don’t match, you could apply for an additional certificate to be issued when you turn 65.
If none of these documents match, the naturalisers office will issue you a certificate.
You then need to wait until your naturalizations certificate expires and return the certificate.
This process will take up to six months.
You must also return all naturalisations documents to the Australian Naturalisation Department (AND) within 30 days of receiving them.
The AND is responsible for issuing the certificates that you must then apply for.
You are also required to submit all the required documentation to the minister’s office within 30 day of receiving it.
This will include any passport, birth certificates, marriage certificates, and other documents.
You could apply to a court for a document or certificate to prove that you are entitled to citizenship.
If they want to hear from you, they will need to contact you to explain why you are eligible to naturalise.
You also need a copy of your application for Australian Citizenship.
The Minister for Australian Human Rights has an office in Canberra and can help you with any problems.
