    I have a 16 year old friend, who was born in Thailand to a Thai mother, and Australian father. He was brought to Australia at the age of 2 years, by his father. His father died 3 years ago, leaving the child to the care of his Australian half siblings. The child does not have a birth certificate or passport, and is not sure of his legal status in Australia and whether he could get Australian citizenship. He has not had contact with his Thai family since leaving Thailand. Can you please advise what he needs to do to clarify this matter, and where he can go to get reliable advice.

    Thank you

    Thank you for those links. Is there an equivalent organisation in Queensland?
