Hello People,

My question is, if the parents of the child are PR holders of australia but are indian citizens, does their baby born in Australia get Australian citizenship ( Australian Passport) or the baby will get Indian citizenship only?

Thanks in advance for your response.

If the parent has PR or Citizenship yes the child will be an Australian citizen if born in Australia.

Thanks for your response. Can the baby also become eligible for Indian citizenship as the parents hold Indian citizenship?

I dont think India allows dual citizenship, I believe they become an Overseas Citizen which carries different rights, but Indian members will know and be able to tell you more.

The baby will be Person Of Indian Origin which I believe carries a special type of passport. Not sure about the rights though.

A child born in Australia to Indian PR parents becomes an Australian citizen automatically. India does not allow dual citizenship. The 'person of Indian origin' is simply a card issued by Indian embassy to foreigners of Indian descent. The PIO card holders are free to work, own property- just like an Indian citizen- in India.

Thanks for the reply. Does PRI holder meaning NRI? e.g Are the NRI rules applicable to the child having PRI status?

Another worthy difference to notice about POI card holder right is

POI Card holder
1. Cannot contest in Indian elections
2. Cannot buy agricultural lands (but can inherit)
