In 2004 new legislation came into place which required any successful applicant for naturalisation or registration as a British citizen (aged 18 or over) to take an oath and pledge at a citizenship ceremony, unless exempted by the Home Secretary. The Citizenship Ceremony celebrates the significance of becoming a British citizen and welcomes the new citizen into their community. The ceremony, held by the Registrar, must take place within three months of the applicant being informed that their application has been successful.
