    7 years of suffering for waiting for my citizenship; can someone help me please

    it's been a while since i came to this forum (let's be honest, why even bother and remind oneself of the CIC's torture?). Anyway, Luckychai congrats again, as you can see CIC was just wrong regarding your case (as well as mine) and they finished our applications before the deadline for the...

    My Citizenship experience, Mandamus, ATIPs and all the things related.

    It was just "decision made", in few weeks it got updated to the Oath invitation, and after one month of taking the Oath it got updated again to - You become a citizen. You do understand that this forum is hosted by the Law firm who works on Immigration cases? Not everyone would be happy to...

    Can CIC keep sending CIT0520 requests to delay one's file?

    Hey Tsooma I would suggest to draft the letter with an explanation like - sent documents on CIT0171 request, then both CIT0520. underline all similar documents sent, threaten to go for Mandamus and ask your MP to fax this letter to McCallum and CC it to your local office and the Case Management...

    Citizenship Physical Calculator - Travels while outside Canada

    Include all your travels even ones outside of Canada, as you would probably have visas in your passport. It won't effect the residency calculator but might raise some question during your interview. As I recall, the application states 'Travel history' but doesn't specify that travel should be...

    Should I be worried?

    you are welcome, One thing to consider from my personal experience, after getting AOR I've got a call from CO to clarify the change. If I had known at that time what kind of issues I would face with that, I would have asked her not to change the name. Later I sent the letter to the local office...

    Test to Oath - When does delay qualify as unreasonable for mandamus?

    Do you know how many times call agent told me that same story and sent the reminder to local office ? probably 8-9 times. I personally sent them few letters with passive-aggressive threats of suing them (In march was the last one). Also my first ATIP from last year (and every other ATIP after...

    Should I be worried?

    I did the same thing with my name, you better write them that you don't want to have that minor change any more. It will save you a lot of trouble, as - 1. even if your officer will approve the change you won't be able to get passport until your every other document (driving licence, OHIP) will...

    Decision Made four months ago at Montreal, waiting for oath, Does ATIP help ?

    Call the IRCC call centre first, ask them if your clearances (FOSS and RCMP) are up to date, enquire if there are any other issues with your application like CBSA's response. That might be faster than waiting to get the same information in ATIP form. Other's experience might be mere...

    Decision Made four months ago at Montreal, waiting for oath, Does ATIP help ?

    First, ATIP department at the IRCC is completely different one from the local processing centre where your application is located. The atip works this way, you apply (btw, you don't need to pay 5$ for it, it's free) ATIP department pulls your application's digital format (GSMC notes), then one...

    ATIP Reports

    If you marked 'email' during your initial request, you will get PDF to your email. (I guess that's what you did) My last ATIP was late by 15 days. Send them another reminder after 5 days and they will probably mark your request as a 'priority'.
