Citizenship information

Becoming an Australian citizen is one of the most important decisions you can make. Local governments have an important role to play in ensuring that citizenship ceremonies are a meaningful experience for people who have chosen to make Australia their home.

Applying for citizenship

Enquiries regarding Australian citizenship, applications and approval should be directed to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. The department is open 8.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday and can be contacted directly on 131 880.

Attending a ceremony

Brisbane City Council conducts citizenship ceremonies throughout the year. Invitations to the Ceremony are sent to new Citizens by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.  

For more information on citizenship ceremonies, visit the Department of Immigration website.
