Book a private citizenship ceremony

If you have successfully applied to become a British citizen, you may like to organize your citizenship ceremony.

A private ceremony costs £220 and takes place at Birmingham Register Office, subject to room and staff availability.

Your invitation letter from the Register Office will advise you of the next current private ceremony appointment date, but please be aware we have limited availability. If the advised date is fully booked when you contact us, we will book you into the next available private ceremony, which may be the following week.
