The Australian Passport is much prized around the world as it enables you to access 162 countries around the world without visa. This makes the Australian Passport the 5th most powerful passport in the world. You must become an Australian citizen to obtain an Australian passport. It enables the holder to vote in elections, obtain specific government positions restricted to Australian citizens as well as serve in Parliament and Councils.
To obtain Australian citizenship, you need to have lived in Australia for 4 years as a temporary or permanent resident including at least 12 months immediately prior to your application as a permanent resident. Some time away is permissible in the 12 months (90 days).
