How to apply

 
To become an Australian Citizen, residents need to apply with the Department of Immigration & Border Protection. The office is located at 70 Franklin Street, Adelaide, otherwise you can phone 131 880 or visit their website www.citizenship.gov.au.
 
After the paperwork has been lodged with the Department, an interview and security checks are conducted.  Once the Department requirements are met (usually within 3 - 6 months), the Department sends a letter to the candidate/s conferring citizenship on attendance of a ceremony held by your local Council.  Council will send a letter to advise the candidate/s of the ceremony details prior to the event.
