Citizenship

Congratulations on your decision to become an Australian citizen.

Council is involved in the final step of your citizenship journey - the citizenship ceremony. After your citizenship has been approved by the Department of Immigration & Border Protection,  you will receive an invitation from the Mayor inviting you to a citizenship ceremony where you will make the Australian Citizenship Pledge.

Citizenship ceremonies are held several times each year, including Australia Day  on 26 January and Australian Citizenship Day on 17 September. If you have any questions about the citizenship ceremony, please contact our Executive Assistant.

If you need more information about applying for citizenship, you will find it on the Department of Immigration & Border Protection website.
