Group ceremonies

In response to recent government guidance which we continue to monitor daily, we are no longer permitting guests to attend group citizenship ceremonies.

Private ceremonies

New citizens should either consider re-booking their ceremony with us or should follow guidance on reducing the number of guests that attend to a minimum to ensure social distancing guidelines are followed. 

We hold ceremonies on a Wednesday morning at 9.30am. You have to register before the ceremony and you must be at the register office at 45 Beavor Lane, Hammersmith at 9am.

Private ceremonies can be booked from Monday to Saturday.

We accept card payment only.

Your Naturalisation Certificate is a legal document and is proof of your new status as a British Citizen. Please do not laminate it as it will become invalid. Please keep it safe as a replacement costs approximately £95 and is only available from the Home Office. Issuing of a new certificate can take up to three months.
