USA Citizen son just got Australian citizenship by descent

We just obtained our sons Australia citizenship, he is only 3months old but we thought it would be best to get in done as early so we dont have to worry about it later. With his citizenship certifcate came a piece of paper saying that he " is no longer able to obtain an australian visa or travel authority ".. which I understand. What I want to know is if he can enter Australia using his USA passport? We have flights booked for a trip to Australia on the 3rd of June this will most likely not be enough time to obtain a Australian passport for him.. any help.. please..

thanks

Typically citizens of a particular country must enter on a passport issued by that country. I don't know if this applies to Australia, but I'd be somewhat surprised if it didn't.

I would apply for an Australian passport for your son now, as in this week, and see if you can pay to have the application fast-tracked which is often an option.

Nope sorry. He needs an Australian passport or they will ask for proof of a visa, which you can't apply for because he's a citizen.

See here: http://www.usa.embassy.gov.au/whwh/PassportsUS.html which will help you get a passport. It should be relatively easy, and I do believe you can apply for an expedite.
