Becoming an Australian citizen represents a commitment to Australia and its people.

All applications for Australian citizenship are processed by the Department of Home Affairs

For most people, the final step in becoming an Australian citizen is making the pledge of commitment at an Australian citizenship ceremony. Applicants for Australian citizenship will generally be invited to attend a ceremony within 3 to 6 months from the date their application is approved. You will receive a written invitation to your ceremony from the Department of Home Affairs.

While the City of Holdfast Bay hosts Australian citizenship ceremonies, we are unable to provide further information regarding the timing of your ceremony.

Further information on how to apply for Australian citizenship is available from the Australian citizenship website. All ceremony enquiries should be directed to Australian citizenship (details below).
