This application for Foreign Births Registration, citizenship by descent, was received by my Department on 1 March 2019, and receipt was acknowledged to the applicant on that date.

At present it takes approximately six months to process a complete Foreign Birth Registration application. However, due to the complex nature of the Foreign Birth Registration process, certain applications may take longer.

Once citizenship is granted, then an application for a passport can be made.
