Australia unveils major changes to citizenship process

Australia will make it more difficult to gain citizenship in a major overhaul of its migration process. PM Malcolm Turnbull said that aspiring citizens will undergo tougher tests on their English language skills and ability to demonstrate Australian values.

Applicants must also have completed four years as a permanent resident – three years longer than at present. The move comes two days after Australia unveiled stricter visa requirements for skilled workers from overseas. Mr Turnbull said the changes would ensure that migrants were better integrated into the community.

He said both announcements had been made in the national interest. The opposition Labor Party accused Mr Turnbull of making announcements for political gain.
