Can I apply for Australian Citizenship by descent for my child with an Australian biological father


In this week’s episode of our Weekly Q&A
One participant asked Australian Citizenship By Descent – Can I apply for Australian citizenship for my son?

The exact question was:

What is Australian Citizenship by Descent? If I have a child in the Philippines to an Australian man, can I apply for Citizenship for the child?

Australian Citizenship by Descent is a great gift to a child, and it ensures they can enter and leave Australia freely for the rest of their lives. It gives them all the same rights as any Australian Citizen, and if you have a child with one biological parent who is an Australian Citizen you should speak to Down Under Visa about getting this organised as soon as possible.
