hi,
I saw in my citizenship portal an update to take the citizenship test window. I have not yet received any invitation letter.
That's normal?
Did you receive any?

I received an email and a pdf with it, all the information was on the pdf.
If the website says you are eligible for testing and has given you a window, then I believe you should be able to take the test. I just feel more information should be provided to you either via email or online.
Good luck though

Hi Mervo123,
Congratulations for receiving the Oath Invite.
I was very interested in reading your timeline since we have so many similarities.
I also applied in March, but it was returned in August (wasted such a long time).
I later reapplied in August and am now looking forward to getting the Oath invite/date.
Test taken and passed on June 15. Still waiting.
Btw, when and how did you receive the Oath invite or notification ?
Best,
A.

Hi, i was asked, new physical presence calculator with and a CIT520 request for supplementary evidence form.

I was a truck driver during the eligibility period and I provided entry exit dates best to my knowledge. Is this happened to anyone again? Can they reject my file and I can apply again if my days are not enough according to them?

@jd93 how many days do you have on you physical requirement , if you are cutting short the 1095 then it is possible the IRCC saw your CBSA exit and entry records and you didn't fulfil the physical requirement.

I had 1120 days after all the deductions i made to my best knowledge. I still have little buffer left in case i missed any days outside as truck driver. If they asked for new calculator page, it means they will still process my application if i meet 1095 days requirement?

Anyone from September 2020?

Application sent and AOR received Dec 15 2020 and waiting for the status update?

My status is showing "In Progress".
Here is the timeline -
  1. App Sent: September 01, 2020
  2. App Delivered: December 15, 2020
  3. AOR Received: December 15, 2020
  4. BG Verification completed: March 15, 2021.
  5. Language skills : In progress
  6. Physical presence: In progress
  7. Prohibitions : In progress
Is there any way to contact them and ask for status?
We almost have similar timeline, recently my Citizenship Test status changed in June to In Progress but until now I havent received any invitation yet. Anyone else on the same boat?
