We are now able to resume citizenship ceremonies as we receive outstanding certificates through from the Home Office. All customers waiting for a ceremony will be contacted and offered a date for this as soon as we receive their details from the Home Office.
Please be advised that the Home office is experiencing significant delays with regards to issuing Naturalisation Certificate to Local Authorities. We are unable to pinpoint an exact timescale as to when your invitation is likely to be sent out. Please be assured we will send you the invitation for the Ceremony as soon as the Home Office issues the Certificate. Any queries, please contact Home Office on 0300 123 2241
Naturalisation application checking and sending services are no longer provided by local authorities. Please check application routes and services available on gov.uk.
The UK government has reached an agreement with the EU that will protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members living in the UK. It has also reached an agreement with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and a separate agreement with Switzerland.
These agreements mean that most citizens from the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland will need to apply to stay in the UK. They can then continue living their lives here as they do now.
Once we have been notified by the Home Office that your British citizenship application has been successful, we will invite you to attend a group citizenship ceremony. You must wait to hear from us even if you have received confirmation from the Home Office. It may be that we receive your documents from the Home Office later. As soon as we receive your documents we will contact you.
