Invitations for citizenship ceremonies, providing all details for the event, will be emailed out about one month prior to the ceremony date.
Ceremonies are held at the Civic Centre regularly, usually every two months, however this may change due to special circumstances.
When you arrive, you must bring either a current driver’s license or passport for identification.
All new citizens are officiated by His Worship the Mayor, Russell Aubrey and each person is required to make either an Oath Pledge or an Affirmation Pledge for Citizenship, depending on the choice made when completing the application.
You will then receive your Certificate of Citizenship (provided by the Department of Home Affairs), your legal proof of Australian citizenship which allows you to apply to vote and for an Australian passport.
To enrol contact the Australian Electoral Commission.
For passport enquiries contact the Australian Passport Office.
