The City of Sydney’s role

The City of Sydney places great importance on Australian citizenship. We host ceremonies for local residents who have been approved to become Australian citizens by the Department of Home Affairs.

You will be invited to a ceremony at Sydney Town Hall if you live in the City of Sydney local area and you are invited in order of your approval date.

Please note: The City of Sydney does not process applications and our staff are not involved in any decision making at all.

All of these decisions are made by the Department of Home Affairs. If you have any questions about your application, contact the Department of Home Affairs or phone the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.
