Citizenship Ceremonies

Citizenship Ceremonies are held throughout the year in the Council’s Chambers at Civic Plaza. City of Palmerston hosts these ceremonies on behalf of the Department of Home Affairs. 

Ceremony invitation lists are administered by the Department of Home Affairs and not by the City of Palmerston.

If you have been invited to attend a citizenship ceremony, it is your responsibility to ensure you can attend and that you confirm your attendance to the details provided on your invitation.

Should you be unable to attend your designated ceremony, you must contact the Department of Home Affairs. Council is unable to assist you in rescheduling your ceremony.

For further information please contact the Federal Government’s Citizen Information by phone 13 18 80 or email
