Citizenship ceremonies

 

Invitation to book your citizenship ceremony

You will be sent a letter from the Home Office inviting you to book your citizenship ceremony when:

  • your application for citizenship is successful 
  • you’re over 18

The letter will give you instructions on how to book your ceremony and what documentation you'll need to bring on the day.

You will need to make sure you book your place(s) on a citizenship ceremony before the invitation expires.  If an invitation has expired (or will expire before you or a member of your group can attend a ceremony) then you will need to contact the Home Office.

If you are under 18 you do not have to attend the ceremony, your parents can collect certificates on your behalf.
