The official ceremony takes about 45-60 minutes and is then followed by a short welcome reception for new citizens, their family and their guests. An electoral form is also completed at the ceremony, so that the names of new citizens can be added to the Electoral Roll.
We may be able to arrange a private ceremony when citizenship is required urgently or when a private ceremony is specifically requested by the recipient. However the recipient must provide a valid reason why a public ceremony is not appropriate.
A private ceremony is held at the Town Hall in Launceston at a date and time mutually convenient to the recipient and the Mayor. These ceremonies can be arranged by contacting Council's Civic Affairs Co-ordinator on 03 6323 3142 or email Elizabeth.Clark@launceston.tas.gov.au
