    You may be approved for a private ceremony if you have an urgent need to travel (e.g. family emergency overseas); see the Citizenship Guidance Document for more information on this and the full listing of situations where a private ceremony may be approved. Otherwise, do not expect to be bumped up the queue for a citizenship ceremony: the Citizenship Office's expectation is that you keep your current passport valid until you have received your citizenship certificate.

    If you believe that you have a situation that warrants a private ceremony, you must request this from the Citizenship Ceremonies Team. Their contact details may be found on this page.

    Imperative warning: do not give the Citizenship Ceremonies Team false information for the purposes of obtaining a private ceremony. This is considered sufficient grounds for prosecution under Section 27 of the Citizenship Act and/or deprivation of citizenship under Section 17 of the Act.
