Citizenship

Council runs citizenship ceremonies throughout the year. See how you can become an Australian citizen.

How do I become an Australian Citizen?

The first step in becoming an Australian citizen is to contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Most applicants will be required to sit the Australian citizenship test.  Following the successful processing of your application, wait for the arrival of your approval letter from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Approximately six months after receiving your approval letter, you will receive another letter from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, inviting you to attend an Australian citizenship ceremony at Liverpool City Council.

Citizenships for Liverpool 2018 will be held at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre on the following dates:
