I didn't move out of Canada. I had to go to my home country for an extended period of time because of a family situation.

During the interview the officer asked what I did for work and about my travel history. It only lasted about 15 or 20 minutes.

Her main concern was whether I met the physical presence requirements so she checked the stamps in my passport but I didn't have stamps for all trips because many of them were taken during covid and in my home country they were stamping passports then. She told me that alot travel wasn't a problem as that is your right as long as you maintain your PR status and meet your physical presence requirement.

She told me she would contact CBSA and if the my travel history from them reflected what was in my calculation was okay, that I should I expect to have my oath ceremony in 4 to 6 weeks. She also asked me if I wanted to travel in the next two to three months.

I saw some where on the forum that if you take your test outside of Canada you should email your processing office with your boarding pass when you return. I did that when I returned and I got the invitation to my interview a month later.

Sorry for the long post. If you have any other questions, let me know.
Thank you @krrynnllyn for the detailed response.

In my case, I moved for work and I am still outside Canada. So, I can't provide them with a boarding pass. I applied with 1122 days, so I am not too close to the 1095 days thing. Hopefully, my case clears LPP verification directly with the additional days. Who knows..haha...

Congrats again on the oath date :)

How did you know the oath is in person? I have the oath date in Tracker but no email confirmation.
I want to know if its in person or online.
Thank you in advance
I’m afraid you’ll only know this when they email you and you could request them to have it in person but might delay things further .. if you live in Mississauga.. it might be in person anyway

Thank you. I want to do it in Person because they provide you with the certificate on the same day.
I am traveling in November so I want to apply passport as soon as possible.
Waiting for an email confirmation :)

I live in Mississauga. I saw 2-3 people from other cities/ towns having august 10t oath ceremony. So I assumed it’s virtual most likely.

Congratulations! Everything turned green for me on June 20th but I still don't have the oath scheduled. I'm in Mississauga based on the test. IRCC works in mysterious ways.
