Citizenship Ceremony

A Citizenship Ceremony is the final stage in granting British Citizenship to foreign nationals. The ceremony welcomes new citizens into the community, it confers rights and responsibilities to the new citizen and celebrates the significance of becoming a British citizen.

Your citizenship ceremony

If you make a successful application for British Citizenship, you'll receive a letter from the Home Office inviting you to attend a Citizenship Ceremony and asking you to contact the registrar to arrange a ceremony date.

You're citizenship ceremony will take place within 3 months of receiving your letter.

Please contact the Home Office if you need more information about applying for British Citizenship.

What to expect

We aim to make Citizenship Ceremonies enjoyable and meaningful celebrations.

The ceremonies are conducted by a registrar. The Lord Lieutenant of Clackmannanshire, the Queen's representative in this area, or his deputy will normally attend the ceremony.

During the ceremony each new citizen will swear or affirm an oath of allegiance to the Crown and make a pledge to uphold the values and laws of the UK.

Citizenship Ceremonies aren't open to the public but you can bring several guests with you.
