Citizenship ceremonies

We hold ceremonies throughout the year to say kia ora to our newest citizens.

Ceremonies are hosted by the Tasman District Council as a way to welcome our new Tasman residents and celebrate with them.

The Department of Internal Affairs manages the citizenship process. If you have questions about the Citizenship Process or the status of your application, please contact the Department of Internal Affairs on 0800 22 51 51.
