Question Applying as UK or Aussie citizen - Which is fastest/Easiest?

Hi.

I'm looking to fill in the Federal Skilled Worker Visa application and I'm lucky enough to have both UK and Australian Citizenship and currently reside in Australia. I'm planning on using the Sydney office.

Are there any benefits of to applying as one or the other when it's asking me my passport details etc?

Thanks in advance.
Good luck with all your visas!

No difference to timing, but if applying through Sydney it will be less confusing if you apply as an Australian citizen. They ask about any other nationality in any case.

Otherwise they will want to see your resident visa for Australia, which you don't have.

I would say if you're a naturalized Aussie then it is probably much easier to apply from there as it will save sending paperwork back and forth to London.
