Australian senators have finally revealed their foreign ties following the publication on Monday of Australia's first ever "citizenship register".

The ABC has collected every reference to foreign countries in these disclosures and published them below.
?Who trusts the register

Hundreds of pages of disclosures have been published, but there is still room for doubt around the eligibility of some senators.

The form does not require any documentary evidence of renunciation, and many MPs have simply provided their own legal argument for why they should not be disqualified from Parliament.

Some, such as senator David Leyonhjelm, used his disclosures to highlight flaws in the system.

He reported: "I once asked my mother if my father was truly my father, but she was offended so I didn't ask again."
Every foreign link disclosed

This is a list of every foreign link disclosed on the register, collated for the first time.

For each link, the ABC has recorded whether there was documentary evidence provided in the disclosures.

This evidence must be from a reputable third party that answers whether the senator is still eligible for the current Parliament despite the foreign link — for example, a letter from an embassy.
