My wife application is stuck on the last step (waiting for oath ceremony) since October 15, Is it worth raising a webform to get it moving again?

Is any February applicant still waiting for the test invite? I haven’t even received the test invite yet. Just background verification is completed. The status of everything else is either “in progress” or “not started”. Anyone else in the same boat? What should I do?

Application delivered: February 9, 2021
AOR: April 13, 2021
Fingerprint required: September 15, 2021
Fingerprint received: October 28, 2021
Background verification status updated to completed: October 29, 2021
Last update: October 29, 2021

Nothing since then :-(

You are not alone, trust me.
As a matter of fact, I think a vast majority of February applicants haven't received a test invite yet.

I am waiting for GCMS notes to come, but it may also take a while.

Quick question: how soon after my citizenship ceremony can I apply for the passport? Do I need to wait for the certificate to come in the mail or is it instant?

Thank you!

Congratulations, I believe you have to wait for your citizenship certificate to arrive, see below

As per the spreadsheet, 50% of people have received test invites. 48% for January 2021 applicants.

Personally, I haven't received anything apart from AOR. Online it just says in process (apart from Test and Oath ofc). Coming up to an year of application - I really hope they speed up.. (expectations are low though).

Also - unlike PR tracking spreadsheets e.g. for spousal sponsorship, this spreadsheet doesn't track the applicant's existing citizenship. I wonder how many of the 50% come from the US/UK etc.
