    How long does it take to update Nexus after I receive Canadian citizenship?

    FYI -- Just visited the new Nexus center in Vancouver on Main street this morning [Nov. 8, 2018] and the receptionist copied my Nexus card and my new Canadian passport. He said it could take up to 10 days to have it entered in the system and not to use the card until I could verify that the...

    Ceremony questions, 1) Do you need to have the oath fully memorized? 2) Is it taken at once by the entire room, or individually? Thanks!

    Your Confirmation of Permanent Residence. In theory your passport will contain the entry/exit info. I had Nexus, so did not have entries into my passport from USA visits. But I had requested my border crossing data when I filled out the application and informed them of that when they asked how I...

    Not sure on the time, but was asked a similar question. I told her I ordered the CBSA records and used that to fill in my crossings - I too had checked the box for them to access the records, but it appears that did not happen. My passport did not contain the crossings because of my Nexus card.

    A co-worker has been in that status [after test/interview] for over a month and hasn't been able to find out why unfortunately. But he had had a Visa issue in the past [He's originally from India], so there could be additional review(s) happening. Best of luck! VFX

But it's been almost 2 months and he has still not been flipped to Decision Made. He called, all they could say was it was "Processing". Anyone else...

    On a ve On a very similar schedule as you . . . They are swamped everybody is guessing. As summer vacations end, figure we will see a speed up I hope. Otherwise will surpass the 12 month mark from what I can extrapolate from the latest data. Cheers :/

    Curious on the government calculation of it taking up to 12 months for citizenship. Does that 12 month clock start Running based on received date or AOR or IP? Cheers, VFX
