Citizenship ceremonies were introduced in 2003 to celebrate the occasion of becoming a British Citizen.

All citizenship ceremonies have now resumed virtually via Microsoft Teams due to Covid-19 restrictions. The Home Office have extended the time required to attend a ceremony from three months to six months and will be constantly reviewing this. Please be assured if you have received an invitation letter to attend a Citizenship Ceremony in Wolverhampton we will be in touch with you via letter as soon as we receive your paperwork from the Home Office.

Once you have been awarded British citizenship you will receive a letter from the Home Office inviting you to attend a ceremony at the Register Office you indicated on your application. If your letter invites you to attend at Wolverhampton, please email us at register.office@wolverhampton.gov.uk with your contact details and home office ref number. We can then invite you to a virtual ceremony over Microsoft Teams. If for any reason you do not receive a ceremony invitation letter from us within two weeks of receiving your letter from the Home Office please do contact us at the Register Office on 01902 555777.
