Wanting to become an Australian citizen?
All applications for Australian citizenship are processed by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Further information on how to apply for Australian citizenship is available on the Australian citizenship website www.citizenship.gov.au or the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.
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 Immigration and Border Protection notifies Council that an application has been approved.
