Australian Citizenship symbolises our unity as a nation. It represents commitment to Australia and its people, the values we share and our common future. It also symbolises the sense of belonging to the country we have been born or where we have decided to make our home.
Choosing to become an Australian citizen is a very important expression of commitment to being part of Australia's future and Glenelg Shire Council places a high importance on Australian Citizenship and hosts ceremonies approximately 4 times a year on behalf of the Federal Government.
So, if you are a permanent resident and you have lived in Australia for two or more years, you may be eligible to apply for citizenship.
