Citizenship ceremonies are an important part of the process of becoming a British citizen. These ceremonies are a special way of welcoming new citizens into the community. People have to swear or affirm an oath of allegiance to the Monarch and make a pledge to uphold the values and laws of the United Kingdom. The ceremonies are held by a registration officer in the presence of a civic official.
Group ceremonies take place in the Coventry Council House Chambers every 4 weeks.
We are also able to offer individual ceremonies at Coventry Register Office for an extra charge:
From 1st April 2023
Monday to Friday £170 per citizen with a maximum of six guests
Saturday £220 per citizen with a maximum of six guests
From 1st April 2024
Monday to Friday £180 per citizen with a maximum of six guests
Saturday £230 per citizen with a maximum of six guests
From 1st April 2025
Monday to Friday £190 per citizen with a maximum of six guests
Saturday £240 per citizen with a maximum of six guests
Photographs serve as personal mementos, capturing important moments and memories.
After your ceremony an official photograph will be taken and available to purchase at an extra cost. All official photographs will be pinted to a high quality and presented in a mount.
Do not laminate your naturalisation certificate, this will invalidate it and the Passport Office will not accept it. If you would like to purchase a commemorative citizenship certificate to frame as a keepsake, or send to relatives these are available at an extra charge.
Nationality Checking Service
Coventry Registration Services do not offer a nationality checking service, but many neighbouring offices do. To find out the full list of available local authority offices that offer the service, please visit the Home Office UK Border Agency website.
