"I respect the verdict of the court", Mr Joyce told reporters in Tamworth.
The Constitution prohibits dual nationals from being elected to office. But the High Court judges ruled ignorance was not an excuse in law.
In both cases, the lawmaker was born overseas and was disqualified from Parliament.
The seven judges rejected the government's argument that five of the lawmakers, including three government lawmakers, should be exempt from the ban because they had not voluntarily acquired or retained citizenship of another country. By convention his deputy would have taken over his responsibilities during his absence.
The court also ruled on the status of six other lawmakers in the Senate.
"If a person is not aware either that they are a dual citizen or of a significant prospect that they are, in our submission by definition that person can not have a split allegiance", Donaghue told the court.
Previously only two lawmakers had ever been caught out by the foreign citizen ban, although other dual citizens have nearly certainly served in the Parliament undetected.
