Citizenship Ceremonies

We hold a number of citizenship ceremonies during the year. Ceremonies are held at Clarence on The Bay, located in Kangaroo Bay.

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  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.
