How to apply for Australian citizenship from outside Australia

The Overseas Citizenship Unit (OCU) in Australia relocated in December 2012.

The OCU processes applications for Australian citizenship, evidence, resumption and renunciation made by applicants who are outside Australia. If you are making one of these application types, send your application to the new OCU address.

Overseas Citizenship Unit
DIAC ACTRO
GPO Box 717
Canberra ACT 2601
AUSTRALIA

Street Address:
Overseas Citizenship Unit

Can I apply online?

You can apply online if you are applying for Australian citizenship (forms 1300t and 1290) and you:

  • have travelled into or out of Australia since July 1990
  • are not part of the Australian Defence Force
  • are not seeking a fee concession or exemption.
