Australian Citizenship

Those former child migrants, sent from the UK to Australia in the post war years, who wish to become Australian citizens rather than residents must formally apply for citizenship.

The Trust has campaigned effectively on this issue. As a result, the usual application fees have been waived in recognition of the unique position of former child migrants.

You must be resident in Australia at the time of your application for citizenship.

Please contact your local office of the Trust for advice and information on questions of citizenship.
