Examples of evidence which may be required include:
- an Australian passport;
- an Australian birth certificate (provided you were not born in Australia as a temporary resident);
- an Australian Citizenship Certificate; or
- a Permanent Residency Visa.
- Photo ID will also be required.
New Zealand citizens residing in Australia who hold a current Special Category Visa have full work rights – you must be able to provide evidence of your New Zealand citizenship in the form of a New Zealand passport or certificate of Status for New Zealand citizens in Australia.
If the name on any of your documents is different from your application form, you must also provide evidence of name change, e.g. Marriage, Divorce or Change of Name Certificate, must be provided.
Please do not assume that we will know you are an Australian citizen. Evidence must be provided.
