Cuurently, at the time you apply you must have been:
You must also meet character requirements and pass a citizenship test.
For children 16 or 17 years old, if meeting this requirement would cause significant hardship or disadvantage, you will need to provide proof.
Children under 16 do not need to meet the general residence requirement but must be permanent residents.
There are some special rules that may apply to PNG nationals with (former) Australian citizen parents, depending on where and where they were born. We have experience in handling such cases.
Please contact us for an overview of current requirements and to work out the best strategy for a successful application for Australian Citizenship.

Good morning Nick, I just wanted to let you know that we finally applied this last Thursday! Thank you very much for your help, it's extremely appreciated and allowed me to not go crazy. I am now confident that everything will be ok. Anyway, it was simply to say a final thank you for your help. I will definitely recommend your service to anyone.
Hi Nick, Thank you very much for all of the effort you have put into this. This was emotionally charged from our end and you helped take that out. We were expecting this to take at least 12 months but thanks to you this has happened in 4-5 months. Feel free to put me forward as a reference to any prospective clients that come your way. I will be spreading the word around too.
