Obtaining Australian citizenship

By conventional standards, becoming the owner of a kangaroo country passport can be quite fast. The average world residency requirement is 5 to 10 years.

Before obtaining Australian citizenship, a citizen of any other country must live here for at least 4 years. At the same time, the last year must be spent on permanent residence and not to leave for more than three months.

Investment guarantees obtaining permanent residence and residence permit in Australia, but not citizenship.

To obtain an Australian passport, you must:

  • submit a passport and a certificate of the absence of serious convictions (if there were any, then the punishment is less than a year in prison);
  • pass the citizenship test - answer 75% of questions about the cultural and social life of the state;
  • for investors and businessmen - to provide documents on investment and / or successful business.

 

After checking the documents, the passport is issued after three months. This document opens the door to visiting 167 states without a visa. Moreover, you do not have to surrender your original passport. Both documents are considered legal almost everywhere.
