Preparing to become a citizen
Before you become a citizen, most people will need to learn about Australia. You can listen to or watch these resources to help learn more about Australia.
Most people will need to take a test before becoming a citizen. However, there are some people who do not need to take the test, such as people who are 16-17 years old, or 60 years or over, or people who were stateless when they were born in Australia and do not have another citizenship, or people who have significant problems with hearing, speaking or seeing.
The Australian Government has a booklet for preparing for the citizenship test that you can read in many languages. It is called ‘Our Common Bond’. You should read this before taking the test.
There is also a podcast of ‘Our Common Bond’ you can listen to.
