Citizenship ceremonies

New citizens would normally be expected to book their citizenship ceremony within three months of being sent an invitation from the Home Office.

Due to the current pandemic circumstances UKVI have extended this period to six months and will keep this under constant review.

If you had a group ceremony booked that was cancelled due to COVID-19 we will contact you.

If you require your citizenship urgently, email register.office@lewisham.gov.uk.
