Citizenship

Becoming a citizen of Australia is a new chapter.

Citizens have rights and responsibilities to Australia and its people.

MRC Tas can help you to:

  • apply for citizenship, by providing information and support with forms
  • prepare for the test by taking part in citizenship groups
  • be an active citizen – receive information about how to vote in elections

If you’re interested in supporting new Tasmanians to prepare for citizenship please volunteer

Please note the Home Affairs information about changes in citizenship applications and ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • You need to have been a permanent resident for 4 years before your application
  • You need to submit a form, pay the fee, and pass the test
  • You need to create an Immi Account to pay for your citizenship application.
  • Phone us on 03 6221 0999 for information about citizenship
  • Visit us at Drop-in on Monday to have your form checked
  • Check our event calendar for citizenship information sessions, study groups, or Digi Drop-in for help to create an Immi Account.
