SCHEDULE 1

 

Australian Values Statement

 

I confirm that I have read, or had explained to me, information provided by the Australian Government on Australian society and values.

 

I understand:

·         Australian society values respect for the freedom and dignity of the individual, freedom of religion, commitment to the rule of law, parliamentary democracy, equality of men and women and a spirit of egalitarianism that embraces mutual respect, tolerance, fair play and compassion for those in need and pursuit of the public good;

·         Australian society values equality of opportunity for individuals, regardless of their race, religion or ethnic background;

·         the English language, as the national language, is an important unifying element of Australian society.

 

I undertake to respect these values of Australian society during my stay in Australia and to obey the laws of Australia.

 

I understand that, if I should seek to become an Australian citizen:

·         Australian citizenship is a shared identity, a common bond which unites all Australians while respecting their diversity;

·         Australian citizenship involves reciprocal rights and responsibilities. The responsibilities of Australian citizenship include obeying Australian laws, including those relating to voting at elections and serving on a jury.

 

If I meet the legal qualifications for becoming an Australian citizen and my application is approved I understand that I would have to pledge my loyalty to Australia and its people.
