Wife was born in New Guinea, a territory of Australia in 1953.
Came with Family To South Australia in 1960.
She has had 4 Australian passports, recently applied for a renewal and the proverbial hit the fan, Your not an Australian citizen blah blah blah, etc etc we need proof of your parents birth and travel records, proof your paternal grandparents were born and living in Aus.
But while all the hoo harr is going on a new passport arrives.
Wonderful intelligent example of 2 different gov depts not talking or communicating with each other.
For now we are safe and lying low.
But would like to know other ex pats experience and where they are at, esp in line with the guy deported last week back to PAPUA New Guinea, (not even same F country) and the officials there refused him entry…so he and immigration knobs were sent back to Brisbane, what a monumental government stuffup. Whats the latest with him
So the thrust of my ramble is anyone else in the same pickle?
