Attending a citizenship ceremony is the final step in the journey to become an Australian citizen and receiving your Certificate of Australian Citizenship.

The ceremony fulfils the requirements under Australian citizenship law and provides an opportunity for Gannawarra Shire Council to officially welcome its new citizens.

Enquiries regarding Australian Citizenship and the application process should be directed to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection

Once approved, applicants will receive a letter from the department and Council will be provided a list of names to include in the next ceremony. Council will then make contact with you, to invite you to attend a Citizenship Ceremony.
