Updated Australian Citizenship Test

Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alan Tudge announced that from 15 November 2020, there will be an updated Australian Citizenship Test with a clear focus on Australian values.

The updated Citizenship Test will have new and more meaningful questions that require potential citizens to understand and commit to Australian values like freedom of speech, mutual respect, equality of opportunity, the importance of democracy and the rule of law.

The new test will comprise 20 multiple-choice questions, including five questions on Australian values. A person will be required to correctly answer all five of the questions on Australian values, with a mark of at least 75 per cent overall, to pass the test.

Example questions

These samples questions can be found on the Department of Home Affairs updated practice test.

  • In Australia, can you encourage violence against a person or group of people if you have been insulted?
  • Do you agree that men and women should be provided equality of opportunity when pursuing their goals and interests?
  • Should people tolerate one another where they find that they disagree?
  • Should people’s freedom of speech and freedom of expression be respected in Australia?
  • In Australia, is it acceptable for a husband to be violent towards his wife if she has disobeyed or disrespected him?

There will be no changes to the English language or residency requirements for citizenship.

An updated version of the Australian Citizenship: Our Common Bond resource is now available for download to assist people to prepare for the test. This includes information on the new Australian values component and an updated practice test.

This is the first time in more than a decade to include a dedicated section on Australian values.

Despite the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, since 31 March 2020, more than 85,000 people from every state and territory have become Australian citizens in online ceremonies.
