The Anti-Targ Posted July 22, 2021 Share Posted July 22, 2021 https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/international/300364063/exwallabies-star-quade-cooper-had-australian-citizenship-declined-four-times I'm not a person who can be accused of being a Quade Cooper fan, but if even he can't get citizenship when he moved to Aussie at 13 I dunno what hope there is for NZ born people who have really only known life as a [sort of] Australian. Seems to me like a lot of NZ born people are denied citizenship when people from any other country would get it, on the basis that NZ citizens are automatically granted residency and that's enough. But of course a lot of social services are not available to residents, and of course people can more easily be deported if they suddenly become undesirable even if they have not been convicted of a crime.
