Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance and support.

Council hosts citizenship ceremonies for Boroondara residents on behalf of the Department of Home Affairs. While these ceremonies are held in the Hawthorn Arts Centre, the City of Boroondara is not responsible for allocating candidates to dates. This is the decision of the Department of Home Affairs. 

Citizenship candidates receive a letter from the Department of Home Affairs with the date and location of the citizenship ceremony.
