Citizenship Ceremonies

Wingecarribee Shire hosts Citizenship Ceremonies to welcome those in our community who are taking the step to become an Australian citizen.

Once eligible participants receive confirmation of approval from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, Council will send an invitation to attend an upcoming ceremony via mail approximately 2-3 weeks prior to the next scheduled ceremony date.

Ceremony Dates

Australia Day - 26 January 2021

A Citizenship Ceremony and announcement of our Shire’s Australia Day Citizen of the Year recipients will be held at the Moss Vale Services Club on the morning of Tuesday 26 January 2021.

Due to COVID-19 limitations, attendance to the 2021 celebrations will be via invitation only and limited to immediate family members and recipients.
