Will an Australian Born Baby be an Australian Citizen?
In order for an Australian Born Baby to be an Australian citizen, at least one parent must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident at the time of the child’s birth.
You have a Temporary Visa and your Child is born in Australia, what is its Status?
There are some people who expect that any baby born in Australia will automatically be an Australian Citizen, this is not correct.
The child will hold the same visa subclass as the parent’s temporary resident visa.
The child will have the same Nationality/Citizenship as the parent(s). The parent will need to register the birth at their Embassy in Australia.
If the child is still in Australia after 10 years though, it appears they can become a Citizen on their 10th Birthday, according to the information below.
In order to be an Australian citizen, at least one parent must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident at the time of the child’s birth.
If neither parent is an Australian citizen or a permanent resident at the time of birth, the child is a temporary resident. The child will hold the same visa subclass as the parent’s temporary resident visa.
The child may become an Australian citizen on their 10th birthday if ordinarily resident in Australia for those 10 years.
The above is taken from this Government Website:
