I have finally received the citizenship ceremony oath invitation for January 16th, 2019. I am returning on January 31 from vacation and a very big family get together. I have come to this situation to pay around $3000 to change the flights and return on January 14th so we can go to the citizenship ceremony. We bought the tickets in summer and we can show it is a family gathering with my mom who is aging. So should I come as planned on January 31 and reschedule? Or do I change the seats and come before the oath and no need to reschedule? Any past experiences of rescheduling.
I would say come and take your Oath if you can afford to pay $3000. The next ceremony might be in 4-6 months with the amount of time its taking some people.

Question: during the interview they told me I can only bring one guest and I have 4 guests who want to come, if I bring them do you guys think they will not be accommodated or should I just bring 1 guest?

I am in the same boat where we've scheduled a big event on the day of Oath ceremony but I'll give preference to the ceremony because this thing is important. Will just eat-up the financial loss
Yes that makes sense. I am also changing my trip. All the best!

Nothing like that. You can bring all four of them. Its an important moment for you.

Hey after it changed to DM did you receive any correspondence from CIC? Mine changed to DM but no communication from CIC and no update on ECAS notes.
Hey :) I've just received my oath invite for Jan 10, 2019.. FYI, there was no communication since the status changed to DM on ECAS.. I believe the status will change one day after you receive the oath invite.. good luck!

Thanks. They take away the PR card. Landing paper is seen by them and given back to us. All the best!
