    Yes... dont let them know there is a chip shortage... otherwise they will tell us they are unable to upgrade their IT and computer infrastructure to process applications properly, in a way that mysteriously only affects older applications. hehe

    October 2019 - Citizenship Applicants

    indeed, the situation continues.. and they will most likely keep riding that for months and months to come... and they did indeed mention Afghanistan explicitly in the generic response I got. The part that makes me laugh is related to document submission: "If you included attachments with your...

    I sent a webform yesterday morning and got a reply at the end of the day.. nothing but a generic "we are focusing on priority enquiries response". I hope it works out better for you!

    I did try contacting the local office (using the email that asked for the evidence...). No response so far, it's been about 3 weeks i think

    October 2019 - Citizenship Applicants

    I just submitted a webform inquiry on my file... we'll see what kind of generic response I get or if an actual human with a heart responds on the other end (or maybe no response at all). Basically, i clinged to the fact that I received an unusual request for additional travel evidence and asked...

    I can definitely understand how you feel... and waiting until march seems quite strange indeed... but at least it's done :) you know it got approved, and you know the date. No more stressing about checking trackers or wondering if there is any problem with your file or anything. You can also...

    I think you do have to check in and there is an attendance list...but not sure. There are still a few users around the forum who already went through their oath ceremonies. Maybe they can share a bit more of their experiences.

    Unfortunately, I do not have the contact info =/ ... The emails of the different offices are not listed, and you only see them if and when they contact you directly. Sorry i cant be of more help

    October 2019 - Citizenship Applicants

    Hmmm, i lean towards what Mississauga said.... If the applications were not submitted together, i think it makes sense that they would be processed separately. i do not remember where i read it but someone mentioned that their application had been processed initially at Sydney and only the final...

    I know =/ i cannot believe how and or why IRCC has taken that long with some files like the ones you mentioned. I heard about an applicant who got AOR in 2019 and nothing since. =/ It's ridiculous. BTW.... do you have info on how that works for background checks? Mine was originally completed...

    Congrats!!! Ugh... imagine all the stress they could have saved you if an actual human being with a bit of empathy had simply replied "You will receive invite until we have made a decision on all applicants in your family group". There... one sentence, that's all it took hehe. I see a lot of...

    In my case, Surrey never replied to my request for status update. Still haven't heard anything about the additional travel information I sent. I honestly cannot comprehend what kind of "objective" queue they must be working with in Mississauga =/ Over the weekend I found out about a close...

    Indeed... citizenship gets less attention (as always). But she does mention how opaque the system has been (no replies, no possibility for contacting ircc), how resources have been diverted to "easier" streams and applications, how newer files get finalized sooner... all of this applies to us...

    at least some one is paying attention.... If you are following the twitter thread on 2019 citizenship applicants, please consider liking and retweeting Jenny Kwan's (MP for Vancouver East) letter to Sean Fraser.

    Did you do that electronically or paper-based?

    October 2019 - Citizenship Applicants

    Indeed, thank you very much! At the moment I submitted travel evidence since that is what they asked for, and I did mention that people travelled with me and their passports could be checked if necessary. I'll see about bank statements. I can definitely show that I was back at some point, but...

    Not yet... i would wait to see if I get a rejection (IF.....). I want to do this by the book. I dont want to give them any excuse so that they can tell me "well, now there is confusion and problems with your application because we told you not to do this...". Having said that, I have started...
