Is it wise to provide a copy of payment proof for photos ? It does not say on guidelines.

I did put my name ( applicant name) & photographer did stamped all details as required.

@rajkamalmohanram and others, quick question as I’m filling out the citizenship form: I studied and lived in the UK for 3.5 years much before I became a Canadian Permanent resident. The police certificate for this was provided as part of the Canada PR application over 3 years ago. Should I request for one more UK police certificate given that I’ve not been back to the UK after my original exit? If not, any idea what should I mention in the explanation that asks if I have lived in any other country other than Canada for
183 days?

If you haven't gone back to the UK for 180 days or more after establishing Permanent Residency in Canada but you have stayed in the UK for more than 180 days in the past 4 years, you'll declare that you have lived in the UK for more than 180 days in the past 4 years but you aren't submitting a police certificate because UK was your country of origin immediately before establishing your PR in Canada and that you have submitted your police certificate for UK with your PR application.

You can mention something like this :

"I am not submitting a police certificate for UK because UK was my country of origin immediately before establishing Permanent Residence in Canada"

thanks - my UK residence and studies were actually over 10 years ago. I moved to Canada directly from India over 3 years after I became a PR.
So I guess I don’t have to answer that I was in the UK as it was over 4 years ago- got confused that the question was since you turned 18.

Well, the question only asks for the past 4 years. If you did not turn 18 in the past 4 years, then "since the age of 18" in the brackets doesn't apply to you. You will not have to mention your UK residence in this section.

Hi,

I have confusion regarding colour photocopy of passport.

Do I need all pages of a passport or just biographical and stamped pages?

In check list it states: "Colour photocopy of all pages in your passport(s) or travel document(s) during your five (5) year eligibility period, including the biographical page which includes: name, photo, date ad place of birth, passport/travel document number, issue date and expiration date."


Thanks,

Thanks,
All pages = All pages. Bio pages, empty pages, pages with stamps. Basically, ALL the pages in your passport. And make sure you get a certified translation for anything that isn't in English or French.
