Questions or comments

Citizenship by naturalisation and citizenship ceremonies

Before you contact us, check if we have already answered your question ...

'Am I invited to the next citizenship ceremony? I submitted all my documents but I have not heard anything back.'

The next day of citizenship ceremonies will be held on Monday 16 October 2017.

The full list of attendees will be finalised at the end of September. If you are invited, you will receive your invitation then.

The list of attendees will also be published on this website 10 days before the event.

We cannot answer questions about attendance before then, as the list is not ready.

'You asked me to send in more documents to support my citizenship application. I have most of them, but some are missing. What do I do?'

If you have the most important documents and if you have made a credible effort, send us what you have.

You should also type or write a letter that explains any gaps and include it with your documents.

We will contact you again if we need more.

'Why can't I get through when I call? Why is the phone number sometimes not recognised?'

This is due to the very large number of calls we receive. If this happens to you, keep trying. We are answering calls.

If your query is not urgent, the best way to get an answer is via email.

We are processing record numbers of applications in 2017 and high call volumes make it hard for some people to get through.
