    Information letter- (Landing Interview) October 2022

    1. As far as I know, all you can do is wait, unless there are any pending actions from your end (that is, you've been specifically asked to do act on something) 2. The wait times have grown for all applications AFAIK. 3. Call early in the morning. Not sure when they open but I think it s around...

    November 2020 - Citizenship Application

    Urgent processing is murky waters. We can't be sure - There is no separate notification. However, for me, someone from Mississauga office called and confirmed if I would be available a couple of weeks later for the oath ceremony. Just call the IRCC call center and check with them. They might...

    Citizenship Certificate After Oath

    If the status is set to closed, then it probably means that they've already shipped your certificate.

    Usually, no one staples anything - especially photos. So, I am not sure. The instructions in the IRCC instruction guide are pretty clear though. If they remove the photo and there are holes in it, then they might ask for new ones OR return the application and ask you to resubmit it with...

    Application for Canadian Citizenship - A Comprehensive Guide

    I did not submit at the time of application (I should have). I received a request later in the process to submit PP pages. Also, the tracker WILL NOT have any updates when you receive this letter. You are expected to respond by email and that's that. No updates will show up on the tracker for...

    September 2020 - Citizenship Applicants

    Well, the ghost updates are not that significant except it indicates that something might have been updated in your file. As long as you satisfied the officer with proper documentation and responses, you should be good to go!

    September 2020 - Citizenship Applicants

    We used to be able to do that. However, from recent reports, looks like that's no longer possible. You have to apply for surrender certificate -> Wait until you receive it -> Then apply for OCI. I would strongly recommend that you refer to the OCI thread for the latest updates.

    Yeah, provide the information about the visas you know about and are sure. Particularly the long term visas (work, study visas). It shouldn't be a problem if you accidentally miss a visa that was issued 10 years ago IMO.

    Application for Canadian Citizenship - A Comprehensive Guide

    The process is more or less the same. Instead of filling out a PDF, you fill the information on an online form, that's all. You can post your questions here and there are so many that can help you out. If I see post on time, I'll respond.

    September 2020 - Citizenship Applicants

    That form will be attached in your email invitation for the oath ceremony. If you are taking the oath online, you can respond to the oath invitation email and attach the completed and signed oath form. 'Urgent' requests can vary from office to office. You'll have to convince the clerk that your...

    Application for Canadian Citizenship - A Comprehensive Guide

    PR card expiry has nothing to do with your status as a Permanent Resident in Canada. They're separate things. So, you're good to go! In practice, a person doesn't have to ever renew his/her PR card and remain in Canada all their life as long as they don't travel internationally.

    Urgent Canada Passport

    You would have received some communication if they wanted another reference AFAIK. If 3 references checked out, you might be okay here.

    I don't think so. PCCs are only needed when the stay abroad is for a continuous period of 180 days or more AFAIK.

    Application for Canadian Citizenship - A Comprehensive Guide

    I believe you might be able to add your child to the citizenship application as soon as the child becomes a Permanent Resident if your application is still in process or you have already become a Canadian citizen. Since you are applying for citizenship for a minor under 5(2), I don't think the...

    That's weird but yes. I suppose you can do that. I can't see why you cannot fill that particular section using a pen.
