You can now book a small group citizenship ceremony for when we reopen on 24 August.

Alternatively, a private citizenship ceremony can be booked for £80.

Unfortunately we're not allowing guests to attend the ceremonies until further notice.

You must attend a Citizenship Ceremony if your application to become a British Citizen has been accepted and you're over 18 years old.

What happens at a Citizenship Ceremony

You’ll take the Oath or Affirmation of Allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen and make a Pledge of Loyalty to the United Kingdom. At the end of the ceremony, you’ll get your certificate of nationality.

Our ceremonies are held at:

Hertfordshire Register Office
19b St Albans Road East,
Hatfield

Private ceremonies

We provide private ceremonies for £80 if you want to celebrate your British Citizenship in a more personal way.

You'll receive your certificate at the end of the ceremony.

Unfortunately we're not allowing guests to attend the ceremonies at this time.
