Birth registration appointments

We are now able to offer appointments to register the birth of babies born in the Royal Borough of Greenwich before 1 July 2020.

If you wish to cancel, we will refund the fee paid.

We are now able to offer appointments to residents who have a marriage or civil partnership booked to take place up to 31 December 2020

Please contact us on 020 8921 5015 to reschedule your previous cancelled appointment (please have your reference number to hand) or to book a new appointment.

The fee of £35/£47 per person is payable on booking (dependent on immigration status).

Citizenship ceremonies

If you have received an invite letter to attend a Citizenship ceremony that states Royal Greenwich as your borough, and the letter was received before March 2020, please email Registrar@royalgreenwich.gov.uk to register your interest for either a private or group ceremony.

Please include your full name, address and poll number in the email.

If you have received a letter from UKVI to advise that you have been successful in your application but you have not yet received an invite letter, a ceremony cannot yet be booked as we currently do not hold your certificate. We will update our web pages to advise when we are in receipt of certificates and appointments can be booked.

 

Re-registration and corrections

Until further notice we are not making any new appointments for re-registrations or corrections.
