Munich members enjoyed an after-work Stammtisch at the Park Café, which adjoins the Old Botanical Gardens, on Tuesday, 27 February 2024. Restarting a pre-pandemic institution, the Kangaroo Tisch, 20 people gathered together to talk about Australia, Germany, and strengthening relations between our countries. One subject of great interest – how do you get dual nationality, given the forthcoming changes in dual nationality laws in Germany. Board member, Rob Harrison, spoke to several about the challenges with the citizenship test and the level of the language test. He’d already got German nationality whilst retaining his Australian passport.
Other topics for discussion included the inevitable – great places for scuba diving in Australia, pros and cons to consider when selecting a city to live, what brought you to Germany (if you were from Australia) or how long did you spend down under (for the Germans). Information on work and residence permits was exchanged, and plans were set in motion for future events.
