The Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 makes it compulsory for all new British citizens to receive citizenship papers at a ceremony conducted by the local registrar’s office.
During the ceremony the registrar will welcome you as a new citizen to the local community. You will be invited to take an affirmation or oath of allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen and a pledge of commitment. Local dignitaries may attend to present the certificates of citizenship.
