    To apply for Australian citizenship you must first determine if you are eligible for Australian citizenship or not. If you have transferred to Australia, have permanent residence, assure the residential necessities and are of virtuous character you may be eligible for Australian citizenship. Generally, applications for citizenship require:

    1.       Proof of identity documents:

    All applicants must give proof of their identity. To prove your identity, you must provide the following documents.

    2.       Good character documents:

    3.       Supporting documents:

    Supporting documents may be required with your application for a variety of reasons:
