Citizenship Ceremonies

Australian Citizenship Ceremonies are hosted by Hunter’s Hill Council approximately three times per year in the Hunters Hill Town Hall with our largest being  a public ceremony held on Australia Day.

Council does not process or approve citizenship applications. An application for Australian Citizenship is made to the Department of Home Affairs via their website or telephone the Australian Citizenship Information Line Monday-Friday 8.30am-4.30pm on 131 881. Click here to go to their website Department of Home Affairs

Once your Australian citizenship application has been processed by the Department of Home Affairs you will receive a letter advising that your application has been successful. It will then take from 3-6 months for you to receive a second letter from the Department of Home Affairs inviting you to attend a ceremony at Hunter’s Hill Council. Hunter’s Hill Council will also send you a separate invite with specific ceremony details. At the ceremony you will be required to make a Pledge of Commitment as an Australian citizen and be presented with your certificate of citizenship.
