Attend a citizenship ceremony

Becoming an Australian Citizen is about committing to Australia and its people.

All applications for Australian citizenship are processed by the Department of Immigration and Home Affairs. Further information on how to apply for Australian citizenship is available from the Australian citizenship website or the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.

Once you have become an Australian Citizen through the Department of Immigration and Home Affairs, they will send you an invitation to a Citizenship ceremony.

While Casey hosts Australian citizenship ceremonies, the council is unable to provide further information regarding the timing of your ceremony. All ceremony enquiries should be directed to the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.
