If you require an urgent birth, marriage or civil partnership certificate, please contact the General Register Office who should be able to supply most certificates for you.
All Citizenship ceremonies have been suspended until further notice. You must normally book the ceremony within three months of being sent an invitation from the Home Office, however, due to the current circumstances we have extended this period to six months. We will keep this under constant review. No adverse decisions will be made on applications because of delays caused by Coronavirus.
