Hi All,

I study in Australia from 2010 to 2013, then I left the country for two years.

I return to Australia in Feb 1st, 2016 with permanent residence

Am I eligible to apply to citizenship in 01/02/2019?
(1 year blank + 3 year residence)
I used the calculator from the department and it said I can apply on 01/02/2019. But Is it correct?

Thanks

"At the time you apply you must have been:

-living in Australia on a valid visa for the past 4 years
-a permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen for the past 12 months
-away from Australia for no more than 12 months in total in the past 4 years, including no more than 90 days in total in the past 12 months"

What visa did you hold between 2013 and 2016? If you didn't hold any visa, I don't think that time is included although I'm not 100% sure.
