1. Take your citizenship test
2. Fill out application online and submit it
3. Once your application is approved, attend citizenship ceremony and collect your certificate of citizenship

If you speak good English and have a bit of idea about Australian culture - easy and took me 5 minutes to complete.

Immigration Office offer a special preparation book for the test.

I don't think there are any websites that offer that. However, on the website pasted above there is a contact number to Immigration Office and they can send you materials. I don't think it costs anything.

You can download the test preparation booklet from the Immigration website and also take practice tests (listed on the website).

The exam is pretty basic (mostly about Australian civics/ government, history and culture). I understand it used to contain questions about Australian sport and other nonsense that even Aussies didn't know, but that has apparently been changed.

Good luck!!

Under current rules and regulations, immigrants are able to apply for Australian citizenship after only two years of residence in the country within the previous 5 years. The stipulation here is that a full 12 months before making the application must have been spent within the country. When you are ready to submit an application, you can expect it to cost around $150.

As with any immigration paperwork, there are certain conditions and qualifications that must be met in order to qualify for Australian citizenship. In order to be approved to citizenship in Australia, all applicants must be permanent residents of the country. Additionally, all applicants must be at least 18 years of age when the application is submitted. A basic understanding of the English language is required, and you can expect the application to be in English as well. Applicants are also expected to be able to understand the nature of what they are doing by applying for citizenship in Australia, which is not limited to understanding the privileges and responsibilities of being an Aussie. Applicants must be in good health and of good character. And applicants are expected to maintain close ties with the country, meaning they must be likely to remain living in the country and keep a close association with the country.

While those are the requirements for citizenship in Australia, there are some exceptions to those regulations. In regards to being able to speak English, this requirement is not applicable to applicants that are over the age of 50. And if the applicant is over the age of 60, then they are not required to be able to recognize the privileges and responsibilities that come with Australian citizenship.

Please have a thorough read of Australian Citizenship – Application process for Australian citizenship before you go posting erroneous information such as

And I'm not too sure that you will find good health as a measure of eligibility either.
