The prime minister said this was a necessary and important step to address the "legitimate concern" that there is not enough transparency about politicians' citizenship status.
The announcement by Turnbull came after the government has been disrupted by a dual citizenship saga. "The obligation is on each member and each senator to make a full disclosure as I have repeatedly said in recent times".
Within 21 days of the parliament approving the measure, MPs will be required to provide to the registrar of members' interests a declaration that he or she was not, to the best of his or her knowledge and belief, a citizen of any country other than Australia.
"The problem of Australia is we have uncertainty over the constitutional eligibility of parliamentarians to make laws affecting all Australians", Shorten told reporters.
"I take it as a given that every member of the House and the Senate, as of today, believes that they are eligible to sit in the House or the Senate".
Labor leader Bill Shorten said he was prepared to "engage constructively" with the prime minister at a meeting on Wednesday.
The government plans to put the proposal, which has already been rejected by the minority Greens party, to both houses of parliament in Canberra later this month.
