We are no longer able to carry out citizenship ceremonies at the Old Marylebone Town Hall and this will be the case until further notice. Please do not come along to Town Hall as there will be no one available to see you.
Please also be aware that as there is a legal requirement for you to make your oath of allegiance in order to obtain your citizenship in person, there is, unfortunately, no legal provision in place to allow you to do this electronically instead.
You would normally be expected to book your citizenship ceremony within three months of being sent an invitation from the Home Office. Due to the current pandemic circumstances UKVI have extended this period to six months and will keep this under constant review. Please be advised that no adverse decisions will be made on applications because of delays caused by Coronavirus.
