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 Home Affairs.
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 Home Affairs.
Approximately six months after receiving your approval letter, you will receive another letter from the Department of Home Affairs, inviting you to attend an Australian citizenship ceremony at Liverpool City Council.
Face to face citizenships have been postponed until further notice
Liverpool City Council has resumed its virtual citizenship ceremony program to ensure our community members are able to receive their Australian Citizenship within the COVID-19 restrictions.
Conferees will be provided the opportunity to attend a virtual ceremony in the order their application was approved by the Department of Home Affairs. This invitation will be sent by email and include further information about the ceremony. Conferees are asked to please ensure their email address is up to date in the ImmiAccount.
For any further enquiries about your Australian Citizenship application, please contact the Department of Home Affairs’ Australian Citizenship Information Line on 131 881 or visit the Department's Immigration and Citizenship website.
