Hunter's Hill Council hosts citizenship conferral ceremonies as the final stage to becoming an Australian citizen. Once an application has been approved by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIABP), you will receive notice of approval from Canberra.
Following this, Council will send you an invitation to attend a citizenship ceremony where you will be required to make a Pledge of Commitment as an Australian citizen and be presented with a certificate of citizenship.
Family and friends are welcome to attend these celebratory occasions, which are held approximately five times per annum in the Council Chamber, except on Australia Day when a public ceremony is held at the Deckhouse Woolwich.
Council does not approve citizenship applications, this is strictly dealt with by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
An application should be made to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection on telephone 131 880 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
