Australian citizenship ceremonies

The Shire of Harvey holds citizenship ceremonies on behalf of the Department of Home Affairs. The ceremonies are held throughout the year for Shire residents to receive their Australian Citizenship.

A citizenship ceremony is where you make the Australian citizenship pledge, the final step in becoming an Australian.

Once you have received approval of Australian Citizenship from the Department of Home Affairs, contact us to find out about upcoming citizenship ceremonies.
