Due to COVID-19 and NSW Health requirements, all Council face-to-face Citizenship Ceremonies have been postponed until further notice. Council is currently running a number of ceremonies online. You will be contacted if Council is able to offer you an online ceremony.
Please note, Council has no decision making authority to allocate new Citizens with a ceremony date. Ceremony lists are provided by the Department of Home Affairs.
Citizenship ceremonies fulfil legal requirements prescribed by the Australian Citizenship Act 2007 and the Australian Citizenship Regulations 2007. Ceremonies are conducted under the authority of the Australian Government minister responsible for Citizenship matters.
The role of the Council is to conduct the Citizenship Ceremonies and is not a point of contact for those wishing to apply for Australian Citizenship.
