Citizenship Ceremonies

The City of Stonnington holds Citizenship Ceremonies throughout the year, welcoming residents to Australia and into the Stonnington municipality.

If you are considering applying for citizenship, forms are available from your local Post Office. If you wish to make an appointment to lodge your application visit the Department for Home Affairs or call their Hotline on 131 880.

Candidates will be advised in writing by the Department for Home Affairs of their ceremony date. Council will also send a letter to all candidates before each ceremony with useful information to prepare you for the day.

Next Citizenship Ceremony

 In line with the Victorian Government’s activities to assist measures to ‘flatten the curve’ of the spread of Coronavirus and give our health system the best chance of managing, many community services, Citizenship Ceremonies have been postponed.

We will provide information and advice to candidates when the next ceremony is scheduled.
