Australian citizenship ceremonies conducted by City of Gold Coast

Citizenship ceremonies fulfil the legal requirements for citizenship prescribed by the Australian Citizenship Act 2007 and the Australian Citizenship Regulations 2007.

The citizenship ceremony is the final step in becoming an Australian citizen. Local councils conduct most citizenship ceremonies.

City of Gold Coast holds citizenship ceremonies regularly throughout the year. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection manage who attends citizenship ceremonies and send the City the names of approved candidates (approximately six weeks prior to a ceremony). We then send out letters to the candidates advising them of their participation at the ceremony.

It can take between three and six months after the candidates receive their letter advising they had been approved for Australian citizenship before they will attend a citizenship ceremony.

Contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection on 13 18 80 for citizenship enquiries, including when an approved candidate will be scheduled to attend a ceremony.
