Council is the last link in the application process. Once your application for citizenship has been approved from the Department of Immigration, arrangements will be made for you to attend a citizenship ceremony where you will make the Pledge. Making the Pledge is the final legal requirement in becoming an Australian citizen. The Mayor of Goondiwindi Regional Council has been delegated the authority to confer your citizenship.
Private citizenship ceremonies are available by arrangement through the Mayor's Office. Citizenship application forms are available from post offices. For more information on Australian Citizenship call the Citizenship Information Line on 131 880.
Our 11 newest citizens, and the Mayor, who took the pledge on 23 February 2015 at a special citizenship ceremony at the Golden Age Centre. We welcome you all to the Goondiwindi Region.
