Once your application has been approved by the Department of Home Affairs the final step to becoming an Australian Citizen is to make your Pledge of Commitment at a Citizenship Ceremony. The Town of Bassendean usually holds three ceremonies each year to welcome our local new citizens.

6-10 weeks before each ceremony, the Town will email invitations to eligible candidates as advised by the Department of Home Affairs. Ensure you update your contact details with the Department if necessary and check your junk folder regularly.

The Town doesn’t receive updates or information regarding your application. If you have any questions regarding your application or need an urgent ceremony you will need to contact the Department of Home Affairs on 131 880, email or visit the Australian Citizenship website.
