I just called IRCC and they just told me that testing still on hold and they don’t know when tests will resume

my file is only pending testing .

hopefully soon they’ll put a plan in place.
Patience is very much required when dealing with IRCC.

I got an email invite for virtual ceremony... instructions said I should sign and SCAN the form... has anyone taken a picture with their phone of the signed form instead. I don’t have a scanner and taking a picture is quicker and can be done immediately.

Congrats. My Oat is in a few days. But did you actually scan your signed form or did you take a picture of it with your phone and send to them.... using my phone is quicker and more convenient, I do not have a scanner

Did you get a Citizenship certificate Number, after your ceremony, just curious.... I wanted to know if I can apply for passport before getting the physical citizenship certificate mailed to my address.
A citizenship certificate number is needed on the passport form.
I want to apply for my passport atleast 2 days after my zoom ceremony. Rather than wasting 2-4 weeks waiting for the physical citizenship certificate.

you will not know the citizenship certificate number after your oath. you need citizenship certificate to apply for the passport, you need to send the original copy along with your passport application form

Hi ,

I have applied for my citizenship last year on June 18,2019 from Mississauga , Ontario

Application Received on June 21st , 2019
AOR : August 29th , 2019
In Process ECAS : Oct 08th, 2019

after this no update. I called up Citizenship contact center and they said the delay is due to COVID and no problem with my application .

I am getting a bit worried because my PR is expiring in Sept 2020 . Is anyone in same situation. Surprised to see many people from Mississauga are getting Oath Ceremony request

In the same situation as yours, IRCC has yet to post a plan for citizenship tests. Covid has thrown a wrench in everyone's plans. Only thing that can be done is to wait patiently and hope for the best.
