I have had to renew one of my children's passports since arriving in Sydney. I filled in the form, paid the fee and posted it off to Canberra. I since received an email from the SAHC saying that I needed to also complete the BI-529 and email it back to them. This form is "DETERMINATION OF CITIZENSHIP STATUS" and am I unsure of how to correctly complete the form. My son(s), husband and I were all born in SA, having emigrated in August 2015. I'm not sure how to answer the questions posed to all three of us that ask: "If you were absent from South Africa state - (a) Date(s) of your departure (b) Reason(s) for your departure (c) The date on which you returned to South Africa permanently" Does this include us coming to Australia (in which case we're NEVER returning to SA permanently) or just being absent when our son was born?
