Citizenship - I’d forgotten the pain of Homeaffairs (née immi.gov.au


Recommended Posts

And so I’m back!!

4 years in and probably been away from here for 3 of those just cos life ended up happening and I had less and less to offer. So Hi again to everyone old and new!

So I’m back with a query because it’s time for us to apply for citizenship and boy had I forgotten the pain of immigration forms.

Everything was going swimmingly until I noticed some small print stating you can’t scan certified copies of birth/marriage certificates as part of the application. Given that 90% of the population don’t have an original birth certificate what the heck are you supposed to do? I have certified copies left over from the visa process but these now aren’t valid for some reason?? We used an agent for PR so just did what we were told and in typical gov.au fashion there’s no FAQs!

I‘ve looked at the UK gov site and they only do certified copies so I’m at a bit of a loss. 

What have others done?

Thanks and looking forward to catching up with you guys.

Nikki x
