    Study permit refused - what are the options

    Thanks so much for your replies. Yes, the course they took was a prerequisite for their program. The college offers this English 12 course for students who don't have IELTS. Is it possible that he was rejected because he left Canada while his application was in progress?

    Study permit refused - what are the options

    They did apply from inside Canada, but because they had previously completed a program here. It was under 6 months so no study permit was required. According to IRCC, you can apply for a study permit from inside Canada under this type of circumstance. "Only some people can apply for a study...

    Anyone applied for new passport lately?

    Just applied for my newborn and we got it a week earlier than we were told. Same when my husband and toddler applied last year. They say it will arrive BY that date, so it usually gets sooner (but not more than a week, unless you request urgent processing).

    july 2018, Citizen Application.

    I brought my COPR at the oath ceremony (it was on the list of documents to bring) but they never asked for it. All they wanted was my oath invitation, media release form, prohibitions form and my PR card (which they kept) and had me sign two papers (criminality and acknowledgement of the oath...

    july 2018, Citizen Application.

    If Turkey is your home country or the country you lived in before coming to Canada as a PR, you do not need to get a police certificate. (You already gave them one when you applied for PR, and your criminal situation hasn't changed when you landed as a PR, otherwise your PR would've been revoked).

    Unemployed during stay in Canada. Will they still grant citizenship or renewal?

    Everyone has an interview for the grant of citizenship. The only thing that not everyone does is the written test. Children under 18 and adults over 54 years old don't write a test. But everyone that is 18 and older has an interview.

    july 2018, Citizen Application.

    At my interview, she asked right away for PR card, ID's and all the passports in my possession. If you have any stamps in a foreign language (usually different alphabet like arabic or Cyrillic) bring a translation of those. You don't need your COPR now, only for the oath ceremony. Good luck!

    question regarding test

    It depends, but usually 3 hours would suffice. My test was scheduled at 8:15, got there at 8 am. I was the second person to finish the test and left the room. I then waited outside to be called for the interview which took 10 minutes. I was out of the building by 9:15. You have 30 minutes to...

    Citizenship application - notifications !

    If you put an email in your application, IRCC prefers that. In all my dealings with them (PR and citizenship) they never sent me regular mail. But it happens, nevertheless. Mostly with requests for additional documents like fingerprints, repeat of medical exam, etc.
