Celebrating citizenship

​​​​Australian citizenship is a shared identity—a common bond which unites all Australians while respecting our diversity.

As citizens we commit to Australia and its people, working together to increase the prosperity of our nation.

The Department of Home Affairs celebrates the diverse stories of our citizens, the values that we share and the history that we create together.

Check out the video stories from Australians​ who have acquired citizenship by birth and by choice and learn more about the history of Australian citizenship​.
