Australian citizenship ceremonies

Whether Australian by birth or by choice, citizenship is an important common bond at the heart of a unified and inclusive country. 

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.

The DHA assesses citizenship applications and sends the successful applicant's details to us. They also decide who attends our citizenship ceremonies and send invitations.

Online ceremonies

Due to the impact COVID-19, citizenship ceremonies may be run in a reduced format and with fewer numbers or online if required. Applicants will be contacted if they have been allocated a spot for an online ceremony.
