Wanting to become an Australian citizen?    

All applications for Australian citizenship are processed by the Department of Home Affairs - Immigration and Citizenship. Further information on how to apply for Australian citizenship is available on the Australian immigration and citizenship website or the Citizenship Information Line on 131 881.

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 three to six months from the date their application is approved. You will receive a written invitation to your ceremony.

Loddon Shire Council will arrange a ceremony once the Department of Home Affairs notifies Council that an application has been approved.
