Can we apply for Citizenship by Descent inside Australia?

If you apply for Citizenship by Descent for a child inside Australia on a tourist visa and the application takes longer than the tourist visa, you could mess everything up. There are no bridging visas associated with Citizenship applications.

Does the Australian Citizen child still need an Australian visa?
Does Citizenship come with an Australian passport?

    Your page was publicised in the Dwanta FB, so here I go..

    My mother holds an Aussie citizenship and is currently in a nursing home.
    I hold a Spanish passport and I would like to be her carer.
    What steps should I do?

      You would be eating your time, sorry. Carer Visas exist, but they are being phased out. The waiting list for existing applications is currently about 50 years.
