(Question No. 5395)


Mr Maher asked the Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs, upon notice, on 12 May 1987:

Is an Australian citizen permitted to hold a passport of another country.


Mr Young —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Australian law does not prevent an Australian citizen with dual nationality holding a passport of another country. Whether an Australian citizen is entitled to a passport of another country would depend upon the laws of the other country.
