Australian Citizenship


Application for Australian Citizenship must be made through the Department of Home Affairs. Application forms are available from the Department of Home Affairs' Website or you can call the Department on 131 880.

After an Applicant has been accepted for Australian Citizenship, he/she will be advised by the Department of Home Affairs when they have been allocated a date for attendance at a formal Citizenship Ceremony.

Lane Cove's Citizenship Ceremonies are held on a regular basis approximately every 6-8 weeks, for up to 60 applicants. The Mayor officiates at the Ceremony and administers the Pledge of Allegiance. After the Applicant swears the Pledge of Allegiance to Australia before the Mayor, he/she is presented with an Australian Citizenship Certificate and is granted all the rights, privileges and obligations of those who were born in Australia.
