I am after some advise on acquiring an Australian/German dual citizenship. I am a 19 year old half German, Australian citizen born in Australia. My mother and half sister were born in Germany but are now Australian citizens. My grandparents are still German citizens who also still live there. Am I eligible for an Australian/German dual citizenship?

Any advise of information would be much appreciated.

Cheers, Tim :D

From looking at the German embassy's site, yes, I do believe this is possible (see here)

This used to be a problem for Australian citizens, but I'm pretty sure that was changed about 7 or so years ago.

I'd recommend ringing up the German embassy up to get the full story though. Obviously would be a great passport to have considering how easy it makes it to travel in Europe!
