  • Apply for the UK passport after receiving the naturalisation certificate?

    Hello team,

    I am an EU citizen and I have just applied for the UK citizenship.
    I have a question regarding the UK passport application.

    Is it possible to travel in and out of the UK with my EU passport after I have attended the citizenship ceremony and received the naturalisation certificate? Or should I apply for the UK passport immediately in order to be able to travel abroad?

    How long does it usually take to receive the naturalisation certificate once finished with the citizenship ceremony?

    Thank you very much once again!

    Morning,

    You may want to refer to this thread, where my colleague has provided a comprehensive explanation of this: Travel with EU passport after British citizenship - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

    No time at all, you are presented with the certificate at the ceremony. But it will take time to get a British passport, there are long delays being reported. If you need to travel, do so with your EU passport as noted above, as you will need to send your current EU passport to apply for the British one, and supporting documents take even longer to be returned after the British passport.
