Australia’s citizenship test is getting its first update in more than a decade, with a focus on Australian values.

A dedicated section on Australian values will be included in all tests for hopeful citizens from mid-November, the government has announced on Australian Citizenship Day.

Announcing the changes on Thursday - which marks Australian Citizenship Day - Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs, Alan Tudge said: “Our Australian values are important. They have helped shape our country and they are the reason why so many people want to become Australian citizens”.

The new questions, which will be included on Australian citizenship tests from 15 November, “require potential citizens to understand and commit to our values, like freedom of speech, mutual respect, equality of opportunity, the importance of democracy and the rule of law,” Mr Tudge said in a statement.

“We are asking those who apply for citizenship to understand our values more deeply before they make the ultimate commitment to our nation.”
