Can a person who is converting can he do the conversion on Shabbos? Is there problems of tevillah ( is this considered a tevillah shel Mitzvah) and Circumsion( are geirim like 8 day old baby)?


One cannot convert on shabbat.

The circumcision may not be performed on shabbat - see Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Yalkut Yosef 331:41.

The immersion may also not be performed on shabbat, as it requires the presence of a court - see Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 268:4.
