Citizenship ceremony goes global

Friday 13 April

East Gippsland Shire Council believes it will be the first Victorian council to live stream citizenship ceremonies when it holds its next ceremony on Tuesday.


More than 20 people from across the world will take part in the citizenship ceremony, which is the final step in the process to become an Australian citizen.


Mayor Cr Joe Rettino said live streaming the ceremony make sense.


“Live streaming citizenship ceremonies makes great use of the new technology we launched this year.


"It means people who can’t attend on the day will still be able to see their family and friends on this special occasion,” Cr Rettino said.


“This new aspect of our ceremonies will allow family and friends from across the world to watch the ceremony.


"A recording of the ceremony will be available on YouTube channel, which means even those becoming citizens on Tuesday will be able watch the ceremony.


“Citizenship ceremonies are a highlight of council’s civic duties. Our new citizens are joyful and proud and want to share the occasion with the people who are important to them.


"Live streaming makes that a reality no matter where their loved ones live,” Cr Rettino said.


The citizenship ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 17 from 10am.
