My first pictures weren’t high enough quality, I received an email right away asking for new pictures, and within minutes received an answer with passport picture attached that would work. Highly recommend! Thank you!

Overview of Australian citizenship certificate

Australian citizenship is a privilege offering enormous rewards. Australian citizenship is an important step in your migration story. Becoming an Australian citizen means that you are making an ongoing commitment to Australia and our shared values. It is also the beginning of your formal membership of the Australian community. It is the step that will enable you to say 'I am Australian'.​​​

Application for evidence of Australian citizenship

You can apply for evidence of your Australian citizenship if you were:

  • previously issued with an Australian citizenship certificate or extract (this includes children on a parent’s citizenship certificate)
  • born in Australia and acquired Australian citizenship by birth
  • born in Australia on or after 20 August 1986 and acquired Australian citizenship on your 10th birthday
  • adopted in Australia and acquired Australian citizenship
  • born in the former Australian Territory of Papua before 16 September 1975 acquired Australian citizenship and did not subsequently lose Australian citizenship on Independence Day

  • born outside Australia before 26 January 1949 and acquired Australian citizenship.

Receiving citizenship certificate

Your citizenship certificate will be printed and mail after approving your application. They will send your certificate by registered post. In addition to the processing time, wait an extra 10 days to allow for printing and postage. If you apply from outside Australia, international postage will take longer. Check that your name and date of birth are correct on the certificate. If they are wrong, let us know as soon as possible. An Australian citizenship certificate is an official document. Do not laminate it, write on it or damage it in any way. Report it if you lose it, or if it is stolen.
