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.

Citizenship Ceremonies

Council has resumed face-to-face citizenships.

** Please note: Given the predicted forecast, the ceremony scheduled for 11 October has been cancelled for public safety reasons. Please contact the Department of Home Affairs for further information on your rescheduled Ceremony **
