What's Hot

topic #1: Residence Requirements

Au Citizenship Act 2007 Residence Requirements

To satisfy the residence requirements, you must have:
* 4 years lawful residence in Australia. This period must include 12 months as a PR immediately before making an application for Au citizenship

AND

* absences from Au of no more than 12 months in total in the 4 years prior to application, including not more than 90 days in the 12 months immediately prior to application

SOURCE: https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/citz/startIntervalCalc.do

My own example:

Permanent Residence Date starts May 3, 2015 based on Initial Entry date
Intended Lodgement Date is May 3, 2019 which is 4 years after IED

Periods outside of Au:
May 25, 2015 to January 25, 2016 = 8 months; kayod muna sa SG, dagdag pera, hehehe
May 25, 2017 to June 25, 2017 = 1 month; Pinas vacation
May 25, 2018 to June 25, 2018 = 1 month; Pinas vacation

so kahit 3 years ka lang pala 'physically' nasa Au, pwede ka na magiging Au citizen (if my understanding is correct)???

    @vhoythoy your Permanent Residence Date and your Lawful Residence Date is yung IED mo, hindi yung date ng big move mo.

    Hello everyone. Ito naman yung sa akin:

    (Visa Granted) September 7 to December 8 (United States)
    December 8 - December 14, 2012 (Philippines) (7 days)
    December 14 - December 17 (Australia) - IED
    December 18 - December 29, 2012 (Philippines) (12 days)
    December 30, 2012 - May 30, 2014 (United States) (17 months)


    Parang nalilito po yata ako kasi ayon dito -

    Australian Citizenship Act 2007 Residence Requirements

    To satisfy the residence requirements you must have:

    4 years lawful residence in Australia. This period must include 12 months as a permanent resident immediately before making an application for Australian citizenship
    and
    absences from Australia of no more than 12 months in total in the 4 years prior to application, including not more than 90 days in the 12 months immediately prior to application.
    Lawful residence means residence in Australia on a temporary or permanent visa.


    Ang sabi ay June 2017 ay pwede na ako mag-apply ng citizenship. Pero wala naman ako sa Australia ng more than 12 months kasi ay nasa States ako. Tama ba ako sa pagkakaintindi ko?

    the way I interpret your case ay kaya sa June 2017 ka pa pwede mag-apply dahil from June 2013 to June 2017 (total of 4 years), your absence from Australia is NOT more than 12 months in total in the 4 years prior to your June 2017 application.

    if only you stayed less than 12 months in the US, I believe pwede ka na sanang mag-apply as early as sa 4th year mo after your Australia IED which is December 2016.

    @brixx89 If u were granted a PR visa onshore, your PR date is the date that visa was issued.
    If u were granted a migrant visa OFFshore, your PR date is your date of first arrival in Au on this visa.

    http://www.citizenship.gov.au/applying/files/character/

    Requirements for applications for Australian citizenship

    The following requirements apply to the period of time you have held a permanent Australian visa.

    You need penal clearance certificates from overseas countries if:

    you lived or travelled overseas since the age of 18 years or over, and
    the total time spent overseas added up to 12 months or more, and
    the time spent in any one country was more than 90 days, or
    you are requested to do so by the department.

    @brixx89 I guess @JCsantos is correct based from the statement below:
    If u were granted a PR visa onshore, your PR date is the date that visa was issued.
    If u were granted a migrant visa OFFshore, your PR date is your date of first arrival in Au on this visa.

    Nice although other consequence I see pertaining to #1 is hindi ka nga lalabas sa Au until ma-citizen ka which is so depressing naman halimbawa may family emergency sa Pinas after your 5th year as PR. Kaya I think mas practical pa din to become Au citizen before the 5-year PR expiry. Are we in the same boat boss @wizardofOz?
