Australian Citizenship by Birth.
Children born in Australia automatically acquire Australian citizenship if at least one parent is an Australian citizen, or permanent resident, at the time of the child’s birth.
Children born in Australia where neither parent is an Australian citizen or permanent resident, at the time of the child’s birth, are NOT normally eligible for Australian Citizenship.
Children born outside Australia to parents who are Australian Permanent Residents, but not Australian citizens, do not automatically acquire Australian citizenship, nor are they eligible for citizenship by descent. Most children born outside Australia to permanent resident parents will need to apply for a Child visa, to be able to enter Australia.
Australian Citizenship by Descent.
An application for Australian citizenship by descent can be made for a child who is born outside Australia, and at least one of the parents had been an Australian citizen at the time of birth.
Australian Citizenship for a Child after 10 years.
Children born in Australia on or after 20 August 1986 and having spent the first 10 years of their life in Australia, may be eligible to apply for Australian Citizenship.
Some Visa Applicants might find an Experienced Australian Migration Agent of great assistance.
