Citizenship ceremony

The citizenship ceremony is the final part of becoming a British citizen.

If your citizenship application is approved and you are over 18 you must attend a citizenship ceremony to receive your Certificate of Naturalisation or your Certificate of Registration. 

When you receive an email notification from the Home Office that your citizenship application has been approved please contact us by email at to book into a ceremony.

If you have a child under 18 who has applied with you they do not need to attend but can do so to collect their Certificate of Registration.

At the ceremony you will need to swear an Oath or Affirmation of allegiance to His Majesty The King and to say a pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom.

You can attend a group ceremony or an individual ceremony.

We usually hold group ceremonies every month. You do not have to pay a fee to attend a group ceremony.  

You can have an individual ceremony but you will need to pay a fee. The fee is £91.
