one more thing dont they check ones passport for recent travels?
i may be gettin paranoid over this issue and may be reading too much onto it but then again i want to make sure all of my ducks are in a row before i consider going overseas to work
When you are called for the exam and they look at your passport and see some stamps, they might ask if you have travelled but you can say yes, absolutely and they will not do anything about it because there is no rule that says you must stay in Canada after you have applied for citizenship as long as you met the requirements when you applied. Even if they then decide to call you for RQ, what are you going to do about it? You can not erase the stamps from your passport. Are you applying with exactly 1095 days to the day or more?
