Citizenship Ceremony

After applying for Australian citizenship with the Department of Home Affairs, the final and most exciting step is to make a Pledge of Commitment at your local citizenship ceremony.

Cessnock City Council proudly hosts three citizenship ceremonies each year to welcome our newest citizens, with the largest ceremony taking place on Australia Day.

Once you have received your invitation to attend one of our citizenship ceremonies, you can contact the Mayor’s office on (02) 4993 4210 for more information.

To find out more about eligibility and how the application process works for Australian Citizenship, visit the Department of Home Affairs website or call 131 880
