To become an Australian Citizen you will need to contact the Department of Home Affairs to find out if you are eligible.

If you are eligible, you will need to fill out an application form and pay a fee. You may also be asked to have an interview and sit a citizenship test. The department will then contact you to let you know if your application has been successful.

If your application is approved your details will be passed on to us and we will invite you to attend a citizenship ceremony.

We are not part of the application process. All decisions are made by the Department of Home Affairs. If you have any questions about your application please contact the Department of Home Affairs or call the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.
