Citizenship Ceremonies

The Shire of Corrigin has the pleasure of coordinating Australian Citizenship Ceremonies for approved applicants who live within the Shire. Ceremonies are held at the Shire’s Council Chambers.

The Citizenship Ceremony is a solemn act of law, through which you take on a new status, a new destiny here in Australia, and wherever you may travel in the world it is a status of which you may be proud. As Australians you will be members of a community which is democratic and which everyone has an equal right to life, liberty and freedom of opportunity. By becoming Australian Citizens you are showing that you want to belong and that you want to have a say in Australia’s future.

No one who applies for Australian Citizenship is expected to renounce their cultural identity, customs or traditions which are part of their heritage.  Australia’s own heritage is enriched by contributions from people from many lands.

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship, is the first place you need to call to become an Australian citizen. To apply call 131 880, or go to the website and download the necessary forms.

The Shire of Corrigin will be notified of your eligibility to attend a citizenship ceremony approximately two weeks after you have received your notification.

The Shire of Corrigin will then send you an official invitation to attend a citizenship ceremony. These ceremonies will take place prior to Council Meetings on the third Tuesday of each month.
