Australian Citizenship

Hi All

We have received 190 Visa in Oct 2019. I was the primary applicant. We have done the initial entry during Nov 2019. Post that my husband landed
in NSW during Feb 2020. He continued to stay there. But we see there no interview calls due to COVID.

1) I have a very good job in India and well paid. I m planning to continue to stay in India for few more years. Can my husband apply for citizenship after staying there for 4 years?
2) Is it mandatory for me to be in Australia as I am the primary applicant?
3) If my husband can apply for citizenship, will myself and my kids will get citizenship by default?

If the situation gets better and my husband can find a job, we have planned to relocate. Otherwise, we want to see if there will be any impact
for PR/Citizenship if I stay back.

If your husband is on a valid PR for four years, then yes he can apply for citizenship. I am not sure how your status affects his ability to be on a valid PR.

Nobody gets citizenship by default. Everyone must apply through some method. You may research the citizenship methods available to you if your husband is a citizen, although the rules may change 4 years from now, no guarantee.

There is no default citizenship for a partner. Many of us wish there was.

The partner must fulfill the 4 yr residence requirement.

You can include a dependent child aged 15 or younger, and PR visa holder, in your application.
That child might have to be usually resident in Australia with a responsible parent.
