Australian Citizenship


Australian Citizenship

Yass Valley Council holds four Australian citizenship ceremonies annually on behalf of the Federal Government.

Application forms and further information can be obtained from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection:

Please note that Yass Valley Council has no involvement in approving your application.

The Department of Immigration & Border Protection will write to you to confirm once your citizenship has been approved. They will then add your name to a list of people in line to be invited to a Council citizenship ceremony. Once Yass Valley Council receives this information you will be sent an invitation to attend the ceremony. 

Ceremonies are held on:

  • Australia Day.
  • Prior to Council meetings on the fourth Wednesday of March, July and November. 

Australian Citizenship Ceremonies are held for residents who wish to become Australian citizens. Citizenship ceremonies have an important symbolic role because they formally welcome new citizens from many cultures into the Australian family. The ceremony is a formal part of the citizenship process.
