Thank you. 5 months still seems far too long for something that would be automatic if he were born in Australia. Has anyone had any other anecdotal experience.

Overall I am deeply disappointed in the Oz govt as an Aussie expat. The flight caps, the disastrous hotel quarantines, the lack of support for stranded Aussies, your issue with paper work. It's just a clusterphuck. Oh and the raping of young women in parliament house.

I tend to agree! I called the department of immigration in Sydney to ask for further guidance and in complete deadpan they asked me why my child couldn’t be Singaporean instead? I do feel like there is a narrative that if you’ve not chosen (or been able) to come back to Australia in this period, you are somehow not a ‘proper’ Australian. Consulate doesn’t seem to offer many services either other than being an impressive building.

Yes, exactly. Fortunately I am married to a US citizen and my retirement plans no longer involve Australia.
