Citizenship Ceremonies are special events where applicants for citizenship are required to make the Australian Citizenship Pledge. This is the final step in the journey to becoming an Australian citizen.
The Citizenship Ceremony is also an important opportunity to officially welcome new citizens as full members of the Australian community. You will be invited to attend your ceremony once your citizenship application has been approved.
Becoming an Australian citizen means you call Australia home with all the privileges and responsibilities of a person who was born here.
Prior to being eligible to take part in a Citizenship Ceremony, you must have completed your application process with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) and have received your letter of approval from the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection.
The Town of Cambridge receives candidate lists approximately every two to three weeks detailing those candidates who have received citizenship approval and are eligible to attend a ceremony.
The Town of Cambridge conducts four citizenship ceremonies per year with one of those being the Australia Day Ceremony.
Applicants are notified of their ceremony date in writing approximately four weeks prior to the ceremony.
