Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull tightened Australian citizenship rules in a further crackdown on immigration as his government seeks to boost its flagging popularity.

Applicants will have to wait for four years before applying for citizenship instead of a higher degree of proficiency in English and pass a citizenship test to show they have “Australian values” and can integrate into society.

The move comes two days after the government announced a tightening of temporary skilled migration visas, amid claims employers were abusing a program now used by almost 100,000 foreign workers.
