Becoming an Australian citizen represents a commitment to Australia and its people.

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

For most people, the final step in becoming an Australian citizen is making the pledge of commitment at an Australian Citizenship Ceremony. Applicants for Australian Citizenship will generally be invited to attend a ceremony within 3 to 6 months from the date their application is approved. You will receive a written invitation to your ceremony from the Department of Home Affairs.

While Manningham 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.
