PR to Citizenship

Good morning all,

I have a question, say for instance Me, my wife and only son (who is 2 years old) enter australia on a state sponsored visa (190).

As permanent residents, we can lodge our applications for Australian citizenship after 4 years provided that we meet the residency requiremnts. And if granted I will be allowed to attend an oath ceremony.

My question is, how would this affect my son?
Will he become an australian citizen?

Thanks

Hi Cleverodra -

Your son, assuming he is included on your 190 visa application, would become a permanent resident at the same time you do, and therefore would be able to be included on the citizenship application as a permanent resident applying for citizenship as you are.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hello Mark,

Once a person pass the Citizenship test, can he/she request for the first available ceremony anywhere in Australia or he/she have to attend in the area where person lives?

You need 4 years residency and pass the 20 question exam. you can easily get 100%. And waith for oath taking ceremony. I think 3 months to get a test schedule.

Hi Tara -

It's usually possible to get an appointment to take the test and present originals of the documents you used to establish identity and residency in a few weeks.

Unfortunately the person needs to wait until the next available spot in a ceremony in the area they live in - it's not generally possible to take the oath outside the area you reside in. Once you pass the citizenship test and are approved for citizenship, the waiting time to attend a ceremony is dependent on the backlog of people in your area waiting for a ceremony and how frequently your council, etc holds these. Typically a wait of several months is encountered, sometimes more, sometimes less.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
