In the interest of our staff and other members of the public if you or anyone in your household is feeling unwell, experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or in isolation, do not attend your ceremony or appointment at Morden Park House.

We are now able to offer a modified citizenship ceremony. Please read below for details.

Following the Prime mininster's announcement that from 20th December 2020 Greater London will enter 'stay at home' (tier 4) Covid alert status, citizenship ceremonies will continue to be provided, however, no guests will be permitted until further notice.

If your application for British citizenship is successful and you are aged 18 or over, you must attend a citizenship ceremony. This includes taking an oath or affirmation to the Queen and a pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom.
