Citizenship ceremonies

You need to attend a citizenship ceremony if you're 18 or over and have successfully applied to become a British citizen.

All citizenship ceremonies are currently held at Stockton-on-Tees Register Office, Nightingale House, Balaclava Street, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 2AL.

Before you can attend a citizenship ceremony, you need to contact the Home Office to apply to become a British Citizen.

Visit the government website for information on British Citizenship.

Once we receive your paperwork from the Home Office, we will contact you by letter to invite you to the next available ceremony.
