@Strongfaith42

thank so much , I have a quick questions plz
* for the Background check does that mean that the application is still in Sidney or it is in a local office
* for me since I am over 55 yrs (no test ,) so what is the coming step
After background check your file has been transferred to your local office, next step could be Oath ceremony, or they may need your passport color copies and then Oath, timing is all related to your local office. Scarborough is sending Oath invites to September applicants and they are scheduled until January 2022. You can call IRCC call center and ask them which is your local processing office.

Hi, Congratulations on securing your citizenship raj, so happy for you. I had put in a CSE with IRCC on Sunday (2 days ago) & submitted about a dozen letters that prove my need for an urgent processing of online citizenship application. I got my AOR on Aug 16th. As of this morning I got this:

Follow the progress of your citizenship grant application / email from them at 5.54 AM. My application has been in process from Aug 18th & I haven’t seen any ‘ghost update’ since then. I logged into citizenship test portal & looks like I can’t take the test yet.

Does this mean my application is going somewhere or every online applicant will get this after AOR? I will call CIC at 8 am to confirm but you guys know this better than anyone else.

Whats you timeline?
Red text: Did you receive email or where do you see that?
I dont think that cic even got chance to review your request. So you will have to wait for 10-15 days minimum.
You may or may not get response for urgent request. Sometimes they respond to you saying they forwarded your request to local office and they will take action. Sometimes there wont be any response but local office might contact you if they approve your request. Sometimes without response they will make your application progress fast and move it next stages quickly in days/weeks. But i think that if your background check is complete then it will move fast if they approve your request.
