Council conducts regular citizenship ceremonies throughout the year.
For those seeking to become Australian citizens, the first step is to contact the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) on 131 880 or to visit the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's website.
Once an application for citizenship is approved, the department will send you and your family members invitations to the next available citizenship ceremony in Yarra.
About six citizenship ceremonies are held in Yarra annually, with the first ceremony for the year held each Australia Day (26 January).
The next ceremony for 2013 will be held on:
- Thursday 11 July
- Thursday 15 August
- Thursday 5 September
- Thursday 7 November
These ceremonies will all be held at the Richmond Town Hall, from 7pm (with doors opening at 6.30pm).
