Australian Citizenship Act 2007

26 March

The Southern Cross Group (SCG) today welcomed the news that the Australian Citizenship Act 2007 received Royal Assent on 15 March 2007. The Act was passed by Parliament in Canberra on 1 March, and the provisions impacting those in the Australian diaspora are expected to come into force on 1 July this year.

SCG Australian Coordinator John MacGregor said, "Thousands of people in the Australian expatriate community around the globe have been waiting for this legislation for a very long time. We are very pleased that at long last the changes that the SCG has lobbied so hard for over such a long period are finally law, and that people will be able to apply for Australian citizenship under the new provisions from 1 July 2007. This legislation represents a more inclusive approach to Australian citizenship towards the Australian diaspora than anytime previously in Australia’s history."
