If you’d like to become an Australian citizen, you must apply through the Department of Home Affairs (DHA).
What role does Glen Eira play in citizenship?
On behalf of the Commonwealth Government, we hold a number of ceremonies at Glen Eira Town Hall each year. The Mayor of Glen Eira hosts the ceremonies, with key speakers and parliamentary representatives also attending.
DHA assesses citizenship applications and sends the successful applicants details to us. They also decide who attends our citizenship ceremonies and send the invitations.
Due to the impact COVID-19 on our community, we will not be hosting any in-person citizenship ceremonies at this time, however we can offer a virtual ceremony.
With in-person ceremonies unable to be held, all ceremonies will be conducted online using the program 'Zoom'. They are restricted to one person/family group per ceremony. Once you are allocated one of these ceremonies, we will contact you directly to confirm the details of the date and time, the mandatory requirements, the process, and answer any of your questions.
