  1. BECOMING A CITIZEN BY BIRTH
    If you are born in Australia, you automatically become an Australian citizen by birth. In case either of your parents is not an Australian citizen then the decision lies in their hands as to which citizenship you would belong to. The child born to a couple who have temporary visas does not become an Australian citizen; however , they inherit the same visa status type. If you were born before 1986 then you are not automatically entitled to become an Australian citizen.
  2. BECOMING A CITIZEN BY CONFERRAL
    Amongst many other ways, conferral is one which you can choose. For the same, you will have to reside in Australia on a permanent visa. Australian citizenship is granted only when you stay there continuously for four years under residency and then qualify for the visa that includes 12 months of permanent residency. Conferral path is also chosen by the person who cannot get their citizenship resumed under whatever reason it was cancelled.
  3. BECOMING A CITIZEN BY DESCENT
    If one of your parents was an Australian citizen at the time of birth then even you are entitled to Australian citizenship irrespective of what is your country of birth. Even later if your parents lose their citizenship for whatever reasons then also the government cannot withhold your residency. You will remain an Australian citizen.
  4. BECOMING A CITIZEN BY ADOPTION
    No matter in what part of the world you were born in case you get adopted by an Australian couple you are entitled to become an Australian citizen by adoption. However, if you follow this path, you should be fulfilling some requirements some of which are either of your adoptive parents should be an Australian citizen at the time of adoption, people born in Australia and are stateless must possess a valid adoption compliance certificate etc.
  5. BECOMING A CITIZEN BY RESUMING CITIZENSHIP
    By any chance, if you were a former Australian citizen then you can very well resume your Australian citizenship. Whether you would be allowed to do the same or not will solely depend on what was the reason you are no longer a citizen. If under this category you are not standing then you would have to refer to the process of becoming a citizen by conferral. Some points to resume citizenship are : you were an Australian citizen however your responsible parent withdrew it, you became a citizen of another country, you have up or announced your Australian citizenship for any other country.
