Types of ceremony
Citizenship ceremonies are usually done in groups. You can also ask for a private ceremony if you have specific reasons for needing one.
Group ceremonies include up to 25 other people at a time and are arranged by the citizenship team on your behalf.
A registrar will conduct the group ceremony which will last around 30 minutes and will take place in one of our offices in Buckinghamshire.
You can ask for a private ceremony if you:
- would like more than 2 guests to attend your ceremony
- need a ceremony at short notice
- would like a different day, time or location to the one scheduled for you
Private ceremonies can take place in either our Aylesbury or Beaconsfield offices. There are additional fees for private ceremonies.
