We hold citizenship ceremonies for residents of the City of Sydney local area.
City of Sydney citizenship ceremonies
Our in-person ceremonies are on hold due to the current lockdown. We know some City of Sydney residents are eagerly awaiting their citizenship ceremony.
We will be starting online ceremonies very soon and you will be given the opportunity to either attend an online ceremony or wait for an in-person ceremony.
As online ceremonies are much smaller it will take time to work through our waiting list and this will be done in order of when you were approved. Please be patient, emailing or phoning us will not make it happen any faster.
If you have compassionate or compelling grounds for a ceremony, please contact the Department of Home Affairs directly.
Invitations will be sent by email, so be sure your email and other contact details are up to date in your Immi account.
Invitations will come from [email protected]. You should add this email address to your contacts to ensure the invitation will not go to your spam or junk mail.
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.
