Citizenship

Requests for Citizenship must be made by contacting the Department of Home Affairs. You can contact the Department through the Department of Home Affairs website.

Once the application process has been completed and approved, the Department of Home Affairs will contact the Nhulunbuy Corporation to arrange a Citizenship Ceremony on its behalf. The ceremony can be either a public or private ceremony where applicants stand before the Nhulunbuy Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer, swear an oath or Affirmation of Allegiance and receive their citizenship certificate.

Becoming a citizen in such a ceremony is a very important step in the process of becoming an Australian citizen. It is an opportunity for you to declare your allegiance to Australia and for the local community to welcome you on behalf of all Australians.

Please contact the Nhulunbuy Corporation on (08) 8939 2200 to find out details of our next Citizenship Ceremony.
