City of Canada Bay is now undertaking Virtual Citizenship Ceremonies. These will be held weekly however each ceremony is only held with a small group of conferees.
If you are a conferee who has passed your Citizenship test OR who received an invitation to a ceremony that was cancelled, you do not have to do anything. The Department of Home Affairs will continue to allocate conferees to City of Canada Bay Virtual ceremonies once dates have been set. Once we receive these names we will email conferees to see if they wish to participate in a Virtual ceremony and provide relevant details. You may choose to wait until such times as we can hold in-person ceremonies if you do not wish to attend a Virtual ceremony. Please be assured you will not lose your position on the waitlist.
Becoming a citizen represents a commitment to Australia and its people. It gives a sense of belonging as you fully participate in all aspects of Australian life and means that you are making an ongoing commitment to Australia and all that this country stands for.
The final step in the journey to become an Australian citizen is to make the Australian Citizenship Pledge at an Australian citizenship ceremony. Once an application for citizenship has been approved you are invited to attend a ceremony, where you make the Australian Citizenship Pledge. Ceremonies are arranged by City of Canada Bay around six months after application approved. A letter of invitation is sent by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.
Citizenship ceremonies are special events. They fulfil requirements under Australian citizenship law. They also provide an important opportunity to officially welcome new citizens as full members of the Australian community.
For more information about becoming an Australian citizen visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website or contact them on 131 880.
Please note, City of Canada Bay has no role in the processing or determination of citizenship applications or holding of citizenship tests. For enquiries or information on the status of your application, allocation to ceremony dates, the need for urgent citizenship ceremonies, or to download an application kit, contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection by telephoning the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880 or visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
