Children and citizenship ceremonies

Children are not required to take a citizenship oath or affirmation, and the accompanying pledge, or to attend a ceremony.

If you have reached the age of 18 by the time the Home Office has decided your application, you will need to attend a ceremony even if you made your application as a child.

If applications for children under the age of 18 have been made as part of a family group, they will be invited to attend the citizenship ceremony along with their parents.
