Citizenship requirements

Dear all,

Hopefully someone will know an answer.
I am a permanent resident living in Australia for 2years. If I go overseas for 2years and then come back to Australia.
I am wondering when I can apply for citizenship? After 2 more years in Australia or we start counting agen-after new 4years?

Thank you.

Possibly at least 3 years after you come back..

To satisfy the residence requirements:

You MUST have been living in Australia on a valid Australian visa for the four years immediately before applying.

You MUST have been a permanent resident visa holder for at least the last 12 months, before applying.

You MUST NOT have been absent from Australia for more than one year in total, in the last 4 years.

You MUST NOT have been absent from Australia for more than 90 days in the year immediately before applying.

Good morning everybody

i have question regarding my citizenship application if somebody could suggest please on it.

 i applied my citizenship application on 7 November 2019. On some stage there was a question in online citizenship application form regarding court conviction . I answer NO. But I got in my mind that in 2010-2011 I applied for MRT( migration review tribunal) which is called AAT no. So my question is is MRT is court conviction. Should I answer YES of this question. Moreover I did not go to court regarding my MRT appeal. I withdraw the case I went back to my home country permanent. I stayed There 3 year then I came back in 2015 in Australia on another visa. Please suggest me what is that and what should I do. Should I inform them or it doesn’t matter . Thanks

MRT would not be considered court conviction. The question is looking for any criminal/illegal activity, so you shouldn't need to inform them.
