Apply for British citizenship
If you are thinking of applying for UK residency, see our Brexit guidance for the latest advice on how the UK leaving the EU may affect you.
It is with regret that due to further COVID-19 restrictions all citizenship ceremonies are suspended until further notice.
All postponed citizenship ceremonies will take priority when restrictions are lifted and we hope to make extra availability to cover this.
