Once the Department of Home Affairs has sent you a letter granting you citizenship, they will send you an invitation informing you of when and where your citizenship ceremony will take place.
Until a Pledge List is received from the Department of Home Affairs for the upcoming ceremony, Council has no prior knowledge of a candidates' details or what ceremony they are to be included in. Typically, this takes place 4 weeks prior to each ceremony.
Please be aware that there is a waiting list for candidates to attend a citizenship ceremony.
This list is followed in a fair and orderly manner so that candidates can take their pledge as soon as possible. Altering a candidate’s position on the waiting list is only possible in extreme circumstances. Candidates who believe that they may require special consideration when being placed for ceremony should contact the Department of Home Affairs on 131 880.
