    Currently, I'm on permanent resident status, live outside of Australia. I have had permanent residency for last 4.5 years and my spouse is an Australian citizen. I barely lived in Australian (not even a year).
    As far as I can understand from the Australian citizenship requirements, I somehow fall under ministerial discretion #5 if I apply for Australian citizenship now.

    I had phoned Border protection to confirm and they told me it's not the case, that I do not fullfill the requirements. Could you confirm that information? Was there a successful application for Australian citizenship under discretion?

    Thank you.
