Citizenship ceremonies

Under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 anyone who applies for British Citizenship must attend a citizenship ceremony. New citizens must take an oath or affirmation of allegiance to her Majesty the Queen and make a pledge of loyalty to the United Kingdom.

Citizenship ceremonies in Angus are normally held in the Canmore Room, Municipal Buildings, Forfar.

Your ceremony

If your citizenship application is successful, you will get an email from the Home Office. It will ask you to contact your local authority to arrange a ceremony.

You have approximately three months to attend a ceremony. However, extensions have been granted due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Once you have received this email contact us as soon as possible using our general enquiry form. Remember to include:

  • your name

  • your contact details

  • that your enquiry is about a citizenship ceremony
