Introduction

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 King and a pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom.

Group ceremonies

We are now in a position to offer a modified citizenship ceremony.

You will need to bring:
