Citizenship changes 2017
The battle “citizenship changes” continues. Under the new proposed law, there will be major changes in the procedure for obtaining Australian citizenship: a test for the values of the Australian society, the English language test to a minimum of 6.0 IELTS or another equivalent of the test and a life of 4 years on a permanent visa before being able to obtain a passport. There is a high probability that the law will not pass through the Parliament or the Senate, since the Labor Party opposed the proposed bill, and specifically the party wants:
Oppose the increase in residence requirements. People already have to be in Australia for 4 years.
Oppose the university level English test.
Now the Parliament of Australia is on a winter vacation, we will keep you updated.
