Becoming an Australian citizen is one of the most important decisions for those who have chosen to make Australia their home.

Bundaberg Regional Council is honoured to play a role in ensuring your citizenship ceremony is a meaningful and special experience for you and your friends and family.

Each year Council conducts a number of citizenship ceremonies – the largest being Australia Day (26 January)  and Citizenship Day (17 September) which are two very important dates in our calendar!

Council holds Citizenship Ceremonies most other months in the year.

All initial enquiries regarding Citizenship can be made to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection in Brisbane by phoning 131881 or visiting the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.

Once citizenship has been approved by the Department, and Council has been notified of the approval, a representative from Council will contact you to arrange for you to take the Pledge of Commitment as the final step in becoming an Australian citizen.
