Australian Citizenship 2018

Hi All,

Does anyone know what is happening to the citizenship laws? I recently saw a post on a facebook group stating immi had once again paused citizenship applications, is there any truth to this? Currently do the old laws still apply?

My wife has returned from working overseas and currently does not meet the twelve month on PR requirement as yet. I also see that there has been an amendment to the bill.

Visa: 820 / 801 on grounds of Marriage
Nationality: Sponsor: Australian Applicant: Mauritian
Applied: Online, Onshore
Application Date: 1st September 2014
Police Clearance: Applied 10 February 2015
Medicals: 2nd September 2015
No Agent
820 Visa Grant Date: 21st October 2015
801 Applied: 1st September 2016
801 Visa Grant Date: 12th December 2017

No they have not paused the citizenship applications. Pauline Hanson has put forward her changes which is 8 years PR which the greens are fighting. The immigration website says new changes will be from 1 July 2018 but we are yet to see a new bill presented.

Just remember that any time your wife spends overseas may affect her citizenship eligibility.
