Customer information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) updated 5 January 2021

Citizenship Ceremonies can currently take place in Blackpool at The Wedding Chapel (Festival House) but only the prospective citizen may attend.

Usually you must attend a Citizenship Ceremony within 3 months of receiving your invitation from the Home Office but because of coronavirus, this has been extended to 6 months.

Do not book a ceremony until you’ve received your invitation letter. Because of coronavirus, it can take up to 3 months from being told your application was successful to receiving your letter.

To book your ceremony at Blackpool please phone 01253 477171.

Please be aware that the situation is ever evolving and this guidance may need to be updated in line with government guidance as and when it is issued 

Certificate of Naturalisation

Your certificate is sent to us by the Home Office. If the personal details you gave us do not appear correctly on your certificate, you should return it after the ceremony has taken place to:

Home Office Nationality Group
PO Box 306
L2 7XS

You should explain the mistake and enclose evidence to support what you say.

The Home Office usually wants to see official documents as evidence. If the mistake is yours, they may not be able to change it.
