Australian Citizenship Ceremonies

Attending a Citizenship Ceremony is the final step in the journey to become an Australian Citizen.

A citizenship ceremony is where you make the Australian citizenship pledge of commitment. It is an opportunity for us to welcome you to the community.

For questions regarding your application process please contact the Department of Home Affairs.
