Livingstone Shire Council conducts Citizenship Ceremonies three times a year for residents of the Livingstone Local Government Area wishing to become Australian citizens.
Becoming an Australian Citizen is an important step of the immigration process, and it’s a wonderful occasion in which we formally welcome people into our community and invite them to stay on to enjoy the great Australian lifestyle.
Applying for Citizenship
Information on applying for Australian Citizenship is available by contacting the Department of Home Affairs on 131880.
Prior to being eligible to take part in a Citizenship Ceremony, you must have completed your application process with the Department of Home Affairs and have received your letter of approval from the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship.
The Department of Home Affairs has now published citizenship ceremony ‘wait time’ data on its website. This data will be updated monthly and will let you know when you will be invited to attend a citizenship ceremony.
