Australian Citizenship

Citizenship ceremony

Becoming an Australian citizen is a very special occasion and is something to celebrate.

Australian Citizenship represents formal membership of the community of the Commonwealth and is a common bond, involving reciprocal rights and obligations, uniting all Australians, while respecting their diversity.

The ceremony is the formal part of the Citizenship process. You become an Australian citizen on the date you attend the citizenship ceremony and make the Pledge of Commitment to Australia.

What to bring

Once you have received your letter from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection inviting you to attend a Citizenship Ceremony at Woollahra Council, please be sure to bring along your letter and a current form of photo identification such as a driver’s licence or passport.
