Baby Gammy granted Australian citizenship

The Migration Place welcome the announcement that Baby Gammy has been granted Australian citizenship. He qualified on the basis that he was the child of an Australian citizen.

You may remember that Baby Gammy was the child in the middle of the recent Thailand surrogacy scandal that saw his twin sister being taken to Australia, while he was abandoned in Thailand with his surrogacy mother.

Now Baby Gammy will be able to meet his twin sister in Australia and be able to access the help that he needs.
