COVID-19 & Australian citizenship ceremonies

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all face-to-face citizenship ceremonies have been placed on hold.

Generally, conferees have 12 months from their notice of approval to attend a ceremony and make the pledge of commitment, however, during the COVID-19 period, citizenship approval will not be cancelled if a conferee cannot attend a ceremony within this 12 month period.

The Department is now working to introduce online citizenship ceremonies via secure video link, to enable people to continue to become Australian citizens. These ceremonies will be one-on-one with the presiding officer. Ceremonies performed via video link will continue to include integrity measures, like identity requirements.

The Department will be in contact with conferees with full details in due course. There is no need to contact the Department or your local council about your ceremony.  

The Department will recommence in-person interviews and citizenship tests when it is safe to do so.

Applying for citizenship

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all face-to-face citizenship appointments have been placed on hold.  The Department will recommence in-person interviews and citizenship tests when it is safe to do so.

New applications for Australian citizenship are still able to be accepted during this period.

Processing continues on all applications for Australian citizenship that have already been lodged with the Department.

VisAustralia still open and working at full throttle

VisAustralia, like the Department of Home Affairs, is continuing to work at full throttle.

We are keen to push the applications of our overseas based clients forward and ensure visas are granted in the shortest possible time. This on-going work will allow you to move to Australia as soon as the travel ban is lifted.

We are also keen to assist people facing visa issues in Australia because of the travel ban. If your visa is expiring, or you have other questions about the impact of the ban on your visa process, please do not hesitate to contact VisAustralia.

We want to reiterate that the travel ban is a short-term measure not related to the process of applying for a visa under the Migration Act 1958. The Australian migration program has a long and stable history and visa processing system will continue. People will continue to be able to migrate to Australia and study in Australia. The closure of the border represents a short-term policy response to what we all hope is a short term health issue.
