Attend a public citizenship ceremony

Birmingham Register Office holds citizenship ceremonies for Birmingham residents who have successfully applied to the Home Office to become a British citizen.

If you've been successful with your application to become a British citizen, we'll automatically send you a letter inviting you to a ceremony. You should receive your letter within 2 weeks of receiving your confirmation letter from the Home Office.

When you come to a ceremony you must bring:

  • your original letter from the Home Office with you
  • photo ID, such as a passport

The ceremony, including registration, will take around 2 hours.

Alternatively, you may want to arrange your own private citizenship ceremony.
