Citizenship ceremonies

The final step in becoming an Australian citizen is to make a Pledge of Commitment at a citizenship ceremony.

After successfully applying for Australian citizenship with the Department of Home Affairs, candidates are invited to make their pledge at a citizenship ceremony organised by their local council.
