Citizenship

We hold a number of citizenship ceremonies during the year. Ceremonies are held at the Council Chambers, with a public ceremony on Australia Day at the Bellerive Boardwalk. Ceremonies are presided over by the Mayor of Clarence.

If you would like to obtain Australian citizenship, the first step is to contact the Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Branch at the Department of Home Affairs at www.homeaffairs.gov.au. The website includes information relating to an application for citizenship.

Once all the requirements for Australian citizenship are completed with the Department of Home Affairs, you will be contacted by us and advised of a date for your ceremony.

For information on citizenship ceremonies, contact the General Manager’s office on 6217 9501.
