Written by  Annette Culley

The Australian Commonwealth Government, through the Department of Immigration and Citizenship has released a small booklet that provides information about Australian history, culture, society and the values we share to help you understand the values statement before you sign.

If you are applying for a provisional or permanent visa, you will need to read, or have had explained to you, the Life in Australia book before you sign the values statement.

If you have difficulty, or are unable to read the book, ask a friend or family member to explain the contents to you. Alternatively, you may have the content of the book explained to you by your sponsor or your agent if you have one, or by a departmental officer.
