  1. Hi All, We are ready to apply for citizenship but the dreaded decision is holding us back. "Do we apply for retention of ZA citizenship?" I have read many posts here and understand that it is a personal choice based on our own circumstances That accepted, I am needing to know the following in this scenario: We (Adults) don't apply for retentionKids (both) under 18 will by default retain their citizenshipWe (entire family) travel to South Africa on holidayWe (Adults) use Aussie passportsWhat passports do kids enter South Africa on?In this article (2013), a Swiss-Aussie living here for 40 years could not return to Australia as the Aussie government cannot interfere when you are in a country where you hold dual citizenship. Assuming South Africa make military service compulsory for a specific age group and we travel to ZA; our kids could be forced to serve and there is nothing the Australian government can do about it. Information sourced: http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2013/10/30/aussies-warned-pitfalls-dual-nationalityFrom SmartTraveller.com.au: http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/tips/dual-nationals.htmlWhat is dual nationality?Many Australians are migrants, children of migrants or were born overseas. This means that many Australians are dual nationals or could be regarded as dual nationals by another country. You may not even know that you're a dual national. If you are a dual national, your dual nationality may have implications for you if you travel to the country of your other nationality. For example: you might be liable for military serviceyou might be liable for prosecution for offences under the laws of that country, even if they were committed outside itif the government of that country doesn't recognise dual nationality, the ability of the Australian Government to provide consular assistance may be limited.Confusion does not begin to describe... (..and it's true; this is a first world problem...)

    Retention of SA citizenship forms

    Hi there Been in Aus just over 4 years now and decided to start the journey getting my Aus citizenship. As expected I started filling out the SA paperwork to retain my South African citizenship and come across a few vague questions. It could of course be me being a little slow - On form BI-1664 question 9 where it asks "How to be acquired?" - How does one answer this question??? Many thanks for any help. Cheers Clinton Smith Sydney Australia
