A Direct Pathway To Australian Citizenship

Did you know the Australian Government recently announced a direct pathway to Australian citizenship for the citizens of New Zealand residing in Australia on 22 April 2023?



That’s right; the announcement confirmed that New Zealand citizens who have been living in Australia for four years or above would be qualified to go for Australian citizenship from 1 July 2023. It means they will no longer have to get a permanent visa first. It should be noted that these changes are applicable to New Zealand citizens who have a Special Category subclass 444 visa and the ones who came to Australia after 26 February 2001.



As far as New Zealand citizens living in Australia as long-term residents are concerned, their eligibility for the direct pathway will be determined by backdating their duration of permanent residence to grant them Australian citizenship. As a result, they will be able to fulfill the general residence requirement for the 12-month permanent residence period.

One thought on “A Direct Pathway To Australian Citizenship


Hello, hello, hello, where are you? I refuse to buy them, I am 29 years old, I am Ethiopian, I am full of body and completely healthy. I really want to work, but where should I work? Some countries say we want to work, but they don’t believe in working on paper, for example, countries that have created jobs: 1 Canada, 2 London, 3 Australia, 4 New Zealand, 5 Poland, 6 China, there are many countries, but they believe in paper, for example, Rizm and Verletter etc. In our country, it takes dollars or euros to do this. No, why doesn’t Mastercard work and the young man I’m telling you about is being eaten by a fake broker. If you are a real employer, hire me without trusting the paper. By the way, I finished 12th grade when my father died and left school. I have 3 years of work experience in blow molding and injection machines.
