Hi everyone,

I have a question while filing my application in advance (so I can wait for the application date to sign and send out). It's quite confused me to answer the question 9a in cit0002e_2 form as following:

In my physical presence calculator sheet (from online calculator), I put my application date will be on 2021-08-08 and PR since 2018-08-01, the calculator sheet showing my eligibility is 2016-08-08 to 2021-08-07.

Then in cit0002 form, at question 9a, I input "To" date as 2021-08-07 which is similar to my online physical presence calculator sheet, then my eligibility time is automatically filled up which is different with 1 day earlier from 2016-08-07 to 2021-08-07.

Which "From" date should I follow to fill up other information in my cit0002? Whether 2016-08-07 or 2016-08-08?

Thank you for your advice in this case.
it should be the cancellation date
Yes, the 1 day difference happens and that's perfectly fine. It has been that way since October 2020. Don't worry about the one day difference.

You can't enter the "From Date" in the application form, just the "To" date. Enter the "To" date exactly as shown in your physical presence calculator.

Good luck!

Hi @rajkamalmohanram A quick question regarding the PCC requirements for spouse..
Citizenship application submission: - 1 Aug 2021
PCC related 4 year period - 30 Jul 2017 to 30 Jul 2021
Lived in UAE - Dec 2009 to 20 Jul 2017
In this scenario, would she require a UAE PCC ?

@rajkamalmohanram
Thanks a lot for your quick reply.
I have another short question, the cit0002e form requires to fill up the address and what we are doing in 5 years eligibility period. E.g: 2016-08-07 to 2021-08-07.
For the address, I have 1 address which was actually living from 2015-02-01 to 2018-08-01. Should I input the actual "from date" 2015-02-01 or I just need to input "from date" in eligibility period which is 2016-08-07. The other is similar to "what we are doing" question with my employment.

Thank you again for your helpful answer.

You can use the "Eligibility Start date" as the "From Date".

I don't see any instruction asking to sign & date physical presence calculator but I see it mentioned in instructions on this page. Can someone explain why is it so here ?

That requirement has been done away with.

You don’t have to sign or date your physical presence calculation (your printout of the Online Physical Presence Calculator or form CIT 0407).

Hello @rajkamalmohanram I just had one more question (hopefully the last one!)

After I complete my test and submit it, would you know how long it takes for the online tracker to update? I logged in about 15 minutes after completing the test and it still had the "Waiting On You" status (which makes sense!), how long till it's updated?

Usually, it is updated in a couple of days but can take anywhere between 2 days to a month.

I sent documents for my family yesterday to Syndey, Nova Scotia. I currently live in Quebec but may relocate to Toronto later this year or early next year. Does anyone know how this affects application processing ..
