Oz Kiwi has a Policy Options paper that details six (6) policy options that, if adopted, would provide a fairer pathway to Australian citizenship for New Zealand citizens permanently residing in Australia, and resolve the consequences that have arisen from the:
- implementation of the SCV for New Zealand citizens under the Migration Regulations (Cth);
- exclusion of New Zealand citizens from Social Security;
- exclusion of New Zealand citizens from the NDIS, HELP, Defence Force entry, and various Insurance policies;
- the proposed ‘additional pathway to permanent residence’ announced by the Coalition Government on 19th February 2016.
Use the paper to help explain the issues to anyone you discuss the issues with. Download a copy of the Oz Kiwi Policy Options Paper.
