I had booked flight New Delhi- Toronto but it got cancelled during the ban. So airline gave me a ticket which is valid for one year.

I already gave my test from outside Canada and passed it. ( They recently allowing people to do that ) After that received passport copies request letter. Nah, they didn't asked for fingerprints.

I am planning to stay in India until I get the oath invitation. Not sure what will happen when I notify IRCC that I am outside India after receiving oath invitation. Even if I get the oath invitation or not since they already know that I am outside Canda because of the citizenship test. If anyone here has gone through this process please share the details.
* I mean outside Canada and not outside India

Your test will certainly be delayed as they don't allow oath to happen out of the country. This might change in the future but if you're in Canada, best thing would be to get the oath done and fly to India.

* I mean outside Canada and not outside India
Test< Allowed to take outside Canada (we have few candidates took it once they confirmed from their Local Visa office)

Travel ban< the time is Uncertain, they kept extending it since couple of Months, worst case scenario they May extend again.

Oath: People trying to contact to take it outside but Yet no one got the Confirmation AFAIK.

Travel back through 3rd Country< it is your choice , but Many are using this route to return. There are some hiccups. If you would like to rely on the direct flights, again that's your choice. Direct Flights May take longer than expected to resume.

-Wrote the test outside of Canada.

Will be submitting the passport copies in a day or two. Kindly share if anyone knows about the approximate time to oath invitation.
Since, I already have the direct flight ticket from India and don't want to go into hassle of indirect route. Please let me know if anyone knows about taking | rescheduling oath from outside Canada. Has anybody received oath invitation while outside Canada and replied back to ircc?

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks.
Be safe and happy.
Hello. What do you mean by request for passport copies? Are you supposed to send copies of all pages of the passports held during the 5 years? Thanks and good luck!

Hi all,
I’m new here and kinda concerning about my application right now. I hired immigration consultant so file my citizenship application back in January. The tracking said it’s delivered in Jan 18th. It’s paper application, almost 7 months now and I have not received any AOR yet. AOR is usually issued after 3 months. Should I be worried that my application got lost? Has anyone here applied back in January and still has not received AOR?
I keep checking ecas using my UCI but it keeps saying no record found.

Thanks for the reply. So I am assuming people are still getting oath invitations while outside Canada after they are writing their tests from outside. Let me know if I am right?

Much appreciated.

Yes. That's correct.
So are we suppose to send copies of all the pages of our passport or do they ask for it only in certain cases? As far as i remember everyone was just sending the passport info. Pages which is first couple and last. I guess they ask for all the other pages If you left the country after you applied or something like that.

What do y'all think?
