Citizenship

Becoming an Australian Citizen

If you are planning on becoming an Australian Citizen, visit the Department of Home Affairs website or call 131 880.

The Department of Home Affairs will arrange the Australian Citizenship application, interview and approval process.

Citizenship ceremonies

Citizenship ceremonies are the final step to becoming an Australian citizen, and are where conferees make their citizenship pledge and are presented with their Australian Citizenship. 

Conferees are invited to attend a ceremony once citizenship has been granted by the Department of Home Affairs.

The City of Busselton conducts citizenship ceremonies generally every second month which are held in the Council Chambers at the City Administration building and conducted by the Mayor. The 26 January Australia Day ceremony is held at the Busselton Foreshore amphitheatre.
