Citizenship ceremonies

If you had an appointment to attend a ceremony before the coronavirus lockdown we'll contact you to rearrange your ceremony. Please contact us on 0161 474 3364 or 0161 474 3370 if you've not received a call from us by 10 August 2020. Face coverings must be worn at all times during your visit to the Register Office.

Citizenship ceremonies

If you have been granted British citizenship, you must attend a citizenship ceremony.

The heart of the citizenship ceremony will involve prospective citizens making an oath and affirmation to Her Majesty the Queen and a pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom after which a certificate will be presented.

Citizenship ceremonies will take place at The Register Office within the Town Hall.

To help provide the best service we strongly recommend that you contact us on 0161 474 3364 and book an appointment.

Our opening hours are between 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday.

For further information, contact the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Office.
