My brother is Australian citizen by descent but he has never applied for Australian passport, neither he has travelled to Australia yet and he is going to be 21 years old next year.
My mom was worried and wanted to find out if this will be a problem. Is he going to lose the citizenship if he doesnt come to Australia before a certain age?
I know this might be a stupid question but I just wanted to make sure that her fear is baseless.
Thank you in advance

While there are a few things that can affect being eligible for Citizenship - as I understand, if you are eligible there is no age requirement nor a having visited/lived requirement for Citizenship by Descent.

Yes he already has his citizenship certificate since birth but he had never obtain an Australian passport as he hasn't traveled abroad yet.
