Applications for Australian citizenship are actioned by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). All enquiries relating to Australian citizenship should be directed to DIAC on 131 880 or at http://www.citizenship.gov.au/ceremonies/ .
The City of Bayswater’s primary role is to conduct citizenship ceremonies to bestow citizenship upon our residents. The City holds regular citizenship ceremonies throughout the course of the year. Once a candidate’s application has been approved, and the documentation sent to their local government office, candidates are scheduled into the next available ceremony and an invitation is sent by post beforehand. There is a minimum 4-6 month wait for citizenship ceremonies.
If you believe your circumstances warrant consideration by the Department for an emergency citizenship ceremony, you must complete the below application form and you must include supporting documentary evidence or it will not be considered.
