Citizenship

Emergency changes to Registration Service

You must normally book your citizenship ceremony within 3 months of getting an invitation from the Home Office. The Home Office have extended this to 6 months. Delays caused by the pandemic will not affect decisions on your application.

If you have already booked a ceremony, once we are able to resume normal service, we will contact you in order of ‘ceremony by’ date.

The Home Office is not sending out certificates at this time.

Monthly ceremony

A monthly ceremony takes place in the Fairfield House Ceremony Room. This is to honour and welcome those who have attained full citizenship of the United Kingdom. They will also receive their Certificate of Naturalisation as a British Citizen.

If the date of the group ceremony does not suit, you can organise an individual ceremony on another date at Fairfield House. There is an additional cost of £65.00.
