Citizenship records

Australian citizenship has a complex legal history. This can make researching citizenship records difficult.

Our records cover:

  • the legal and constitutional meaning of citizenship
  • naturalisation
  • ceremonies
  • promotional activities
  • the civic identity of migrants, First Australians, non-Europeans and women
  • the rights and obligations of citizenship
  • travel and passports
  • international human rights
