Congrats man.. Let's hope everyone gets to see the same status soon.

Also, I think they should start in person oath ceremonies now. With vaccine passports (at least in Ontario) it's not very difficult to resume some sense of normalcy. Processing a bunch of people and handing out citizenship certificates at the same time, will get rid of all the online bureaucracy, backlogs and months of waiting times just for oath.
Really hoping so.

I agree about clearing all the backlogs and unending waiting times. Apparently there are still people from 2019 who haven’t even been invited to take the test smh.

Nice! Congratulations!

I saw that you had initially been scheduled for March 2022, I can only imagine how annoying that must’ve been to be scheduled for Oath 6 months in advance :rolleyes:

Happy for you that it got changed and now you become a citizen next week:cool:

Should the entry and exit stamps on the passport with the dates mentioned in English be translated if the words entry (entrada) and exit (salida) are in spanish? Sometimes, it is just E or S on the stamp.

Check with the translator just to be sure.

Got the email today! Along with the test invite, there's also a request for me to send in scanned copies of all passports/travel documents held during the 5 year eligibility period. Does anyone know if nexus card is also counted as a travel document?
So I sent in my passport copies on Sep 14 but haven't received any acknowledgements yet.

On the other hand, I did my test on Sep 25 and passed 20/20 and saw the tracker has been updated with test complete on Sep 28. Everything else is still in progress except test and background verification.

In this case Nexus doesn’t count. I guess you are American. The next step for you in the tracker will be decision made. Congrats

Nothing so far, everything is in progress, but the background verification and the Citizenship test are completeled. The rest are all in progress. I think it depends on the office, you are right.

Completed my oath today (Scarborough office). Relatively straightforward. There were a few minor glitches initially - as I tried to join the meeting it kept showing a message that the "meeting has been ended by the host".. finally we were let in. Then there was a bit of a nervous wait for the admin/clerk to appear on screen. After than it was smooth sailing and the ceremony was done in less than 50 minutes.

I'll consider myself lucky as my journey was less than 10 months from the date of application submission. Best wishes to all those waiting, and hopefully your journey will be done soon too. I know it's easy to say and harder to do - but keep calm and wait patiently. All the best :)
