Wellington Shire Council is authorised to conduct Australian Citizenship Ceremonies, which are held quarterly.
Australian Citizenship Applications
All citizenship applications and enquiries are managed by the Department of Home Affairs. For further information visit www.homeaffairs.gov.au.
Upon successful completion of your Citizenship Application, you will receive a Letter of Approval from the Department of Home Affairs, advising of your eligibility to become an Australian citizen. The Department of Home Affairs will advise successful applicants of their Citizenship Ceremony date.
The Citizenship Ceremony is conducted by Wellington Shire Council, under the authority of the Minister for Home Affairs. Australian citizenship represents full and formal membership of the community of the Commonwealth of Australia, and Australian citizenship is a common bond, involving reciprocal rights and obligations, uniting all Australians, while respecting their diversity.
Following a Pledge of Commitment, your Australian Citizenship will be officially granted and a certificate will be presented. Family and friends are welcome to attend Citizenship Ceremonies.
Citizenship Ceremony dates are not published on this website, and you will not be advised of your Citizenship Ceremony date by Wellington Shire Council. The date of your Citizenship Ceremony and required details will be provided to you on your Letter of Approval from the Department of Home Affairs.
