Australia simplifies Citizenship test procedure
The Government of Australia has stated that people residing in regional area as of the country will be able to take up the Australian Citizenship Test (ACT) at their local Centrelink or Medicare Service Centers instead of transiting to capital cities or waiting for immigration staff to visit their places.

The association between the immigration & human service departments has made it easier for inhabitants to take up the citizenship test, said immigration experts. Currently in place at 29 sites, this partnership was earlier experimented at seven sites.

Now, the government will offer weekly citizenship test at 29 service centers throughout Australia starting from Kalgoorlie, a region in Western Australia to Mackay, a city of Queensland, Australian Immigration Minister, Scott Morrison mentioned in a press meet.    

From October 2007, Australian citizenship applicants need to qualify a citizenship test to become an citizen of Australia, he added. 

Formerly, the staff of Department of Immigration and Border Protection of Australia use to visit regional centers once or twice in a month to carry out the tests. Now that the new model has been expanded to other cities, people apparently find it even more convenience, opined analysts.

Notably, at least, 280 tests will be conducted per week across regional centers of Australia.

In fact, a large number of citizens would be granted with Australian citizenship on Citizenship Day ceremonies, which will be held throughout Australia on 17 September 2014.

Responding to one of the questions asked by the media, Morrison has said that Australian citizenship affirmation ceremonies are becoming extremely popular where any individual can avow their fidelity and commitment to Australia. 

He has even mentioned that citizenship is important more than a legal status and common bond that signals the shared democratic beliefs and bestows a sense of belonging in our achievements as a nation. 

Meanwhile, DIBP spokesperson has stressed that all Australians are suppose to value their Australian citizenship and the contributions that citizens are making in shaping up the country.
