Citizenship

Becoming an Australian citizen is a special occasion and an important decision that will impact on the rest of your life and the future of your children. It represents the beginning of a new period in a person's life, demonstrating their allegiance to Australia and the Australian way of life.

Council hosts a number of Citizenship ceremonies a year. When the Department of Home Affairs has approved your application, it will inform you by letter. You must then wait for the Department of Home Affairs to advise Council of the date and time of the ceremony which they have allocated you.

Council will then immediately advise you of the date and time of your ceremony and other relevant information. If you have been approved but have not received a letter from Council, and you have any enquiries about the date of your ceremony, you can call the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.
