At the Citizenship Ceremony you will be asked to make the following Pledge of Commitment:
From this time forward, under God*,
I pledge my loyalty to Australia and its people,
whose democratic beliefs I share,
whose rights and liberties I respect, and
whose laws I will uphold and obey.
*you may choose whether or not to include the words ‘under God’
A pledge card with the wording of the Australian Citizenship Pledge will be given to you at the Ceremony. An audio version of the Australian Citizenship Pledge is also available on the citizenship website www.citizenship.gov.au for you to practice prior to the ceremony.
Should you wish to make the Australian Citizenship Pledge on your own holy book, please bring that holy book to the ceremony.
