You may be eligible for Australian citizenship by descent if you were born outside Australia and one (or both) of your parents at the time of your birth was also an Australian citizen at that time. Check your eligibility before you apply.
Information about processing times is also available on the Department of Home Affairs website.
The Visa Offices at Australian missions are not responsible for issuing Australian passports to Australian citizens. If you are an Australian citizen and wish to apply for an Australian passport, please refer to the Services for Australians section on this website.
