    Passport application - outside Canada

    The passport application form has something that says, the guarantor attests that the information above the "guarantor" section (I forgot the section numbers) is correct. This does not include the section of "when did the applicant become a citizen". So technically, the guarantor does not need...

    Passport application - outside Canada

    I did the following: 2 hours after my oath, I met with my guarantor and she signed the photo and form for me. The location is a city in Canada. The next morning, I left Canada without a Canadian passport. After I received my certificate (mailed to me by relative), I filled out the rest of the...

    IRCC Scarborough Applicants - Online Test/Interview/DM/Oath

    You never know whether it is an auto reply or not... When I sent a webform last year, in 10 days I received a sequence of 3 such auto replies, which surprised me, because it is hard to believe that an automated system behave, or misbehave, in such a peculiar way. Then my file moved. My guess is...

    IRCC Scarborough Applicants - Online Test/Interview/DM/Oath

    Last December, I tried sending a webform about PR expiry. I don't know whether the issue was forwarded to the SCR office, but I did get scheduled very quickly. Just for reference, maybe the two events are independent.

    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    I think my experience might be useful to some applicants: My residence address, the city in which my guarantor signed my documents, and the city from which I mailed out my application, were 3 different places. My guarantor didn't get a call, nor was I asked for any explanation.

    Canadian Passport - Mail-In Application Timelines

    Approximately 6 weeks from the time I sent the mail. I mailed out the application and didn't pay attention to when it arrived... I think my experience shows that: applying from the US costs more, but the pp will be sent via FedEx instead of Canada Post, so it is somehow more reliable than...

    Oath Ceremony on March 3 2022 but not invite yet to my email. Any body is facing this issue and what would be the next steps.

    You can try calling early in the morning when the service just became available. I believe agents start working at 8am, but please double check. Calling at 8 sharp gives a better chance to get to an agent quickly. My own experience was ~7min waiting.

    December 2019 - Citizenship Application

    I agree. The reason that I mentioned US is because there is a land border between them. For countries other than the US, if you want to return to canada, you need to board the plane, and without a passport, that doesn't seem to be possible. However, if a person shows up at a POE on the land...

    December 2019 - Citizenship Application

    Is it possible to go without a certificate? It might work if you have a US passport/visa. I left Canada 1 day after the ceremony to continue my study in the US. I got my certificate mailed to my PR address, and my relative mailed it to me.

    No decision- 7 months since test and 5 months since all checks complete

    As far as I know, "all checks completed" on the new tracker usually means the same thing as DM. DM is not updated on the new tracker. ECAS usually shows DM on the same day that "all checks" becomes completed on the new tracker...

    December 2019 - Citizenship Application

    I took the oath on Dec 20, and the next day my tracker status changed to closed. I'm not sure whether different offices handle this in different ways. Maybe you could also check ECAS? ECAS should be updated with two items, "we sent you correspondence...(oath invite)" and the actual oath event.

    IRCC Scarborough Applicants - Online Test/Interview/DM/Oath

    I attended the virtual ceremony on Monday, and yesterday the tracker status changed to closed. The officer did not ask me about travel plans, which is a little different from what I read on the forum.

    I received my oath email today. update: one thing I noticed: gmail categorized this oath email as “promotion” instead of “primary”. So do check promotion/spam folder regularly….
