Shire of Exmouth Citizenship Ceremonies

Once the Department of Immigration and Border Protection has approved your application, you will be invited to attend a ceremony at the Shire.

Citizenship ceremonies are held approximately every two months, prior to an Ordinary Council meeting, and will be held at the Ningaloo Centre, 2 Truscott Crescent Exmouth.

New citizens are welcome to bring close family and friends to the ceremony, which will take 30 minutes. Following the ceremony, all new citizens will be required to complete an enrolment form for the Australian Electoral Commission, so you are eligible to vote. Light refreshments are served following the ceremony.
