Burwood Council 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. Australian citizenship formalises your membership to the Australian community. It is an important decision that impacts you and the future of your children. It entitles you to the privileges of Australian citizenship and brings with it the responsibilities of being an Australian citizen.
You will be invited to a ceremony if you live in the Burwood local government area and you are invited in order of your approval date.
Please note: The Burwood Council 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.
