Citizenship ceremonies are a way of formally welcoming you as a British citizen.
You must attend a citizenship ceremony if you’re 18 or over and have successfully applied to become a British citizen.
How it works
If you've been successful in becoming a British citizen, the Home Office will send you:
- a decision letter
- a citizenship invitation letter (this may be received up to 6 months after your decision letter)
The Home Office will send your certificate of naturalisation to us so that we can then book you into a citizenship ceremony.
Every successful applicant aged 18 or over is expected to take part in a ceremony.
