Citizenship Pledge

From this time forward, under God,

I pledge my loyalty to Australia and its People,
whose democratic beliefs I share,
whose rights and liberties I respect, and
whose laws I will uphold and obey.

A person may choose to make the Pledge
With or without the words 'under God'.

From Australian Citizenship Act 1948.
DOFA/Citizenship Policy Section, Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs.
