Australian Citizenship

Non-Australian citizens can now apply for a citizenship following certain guidelines and standards. If an individual is a permanent resident of Australia and is able to meet the eligibility requirements given, he might be able to apply for a citizenship by conferral. This means that this particular person is to be conferred or given the citizenship.

The things one should know when applying for, and granted an Australian citizenship include eligibility, documents to prepare and submit, lodging of application, appointment-setting, ceremony, and the corresponding fees. There are different choices of application. It is important that the person applying knows the type and the ways on how to apply for Australian citizenship.
