NZ exempted from Australian citizenship changes

The Herald reports:

A special pathway to citizenship for expat New Zealanders living in Australia remains intact, Prime Minister Bill English has confirmed.

A spokeswoman for English said he had spoken to Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull today, a week after Turnbull announced tighter citizenship rules in Australia.

“Prime Minister Turnbull confirmed that the Pathway to Citizenship for eligible New Zealanders, announced in February 2016, has not been changed.

“It remains in place and on track, and is separate from the citizenship changes which Australia announced last week.

“Prime Minister English has thanked Prime Minister Turnbull for this confirmation.”

A good outcome for Kiwis in Australia.
