Please update my info.
Test Invite notice: April 24, 2019
Oath Invite notice: April 25. 2019
Test AND Oath ceremony: June 3, 2019

**I have a question about the notice. For the test, on my ECAS, it says "The notice you will receive by mail will be your official confirmation of your appointment". I haven't received any mail yet but I have received Email last week. Should I print them out and bring them as a confirmation? or should I contact them to let them know that I have not received Mail for the test yet? Because it's been 2 weeks since they said they sent it.
For the Oath, on my ECAS, it simply says as "he notice you will receive will be your official confirmation of your appointment." which is not necessarily Mail, I guess. Please advise me and thank you!

They don't send mail for test invite, but you have to print it out to bring when you do your test, they will probably give you an official confirmation for oath once you passed the test and interview.

Any suggestions would really help:

I don’t have entries in passport for US travel by air as everything is through the scanning process. Not sure how those will be validated during interview. Has anyone been in similar situation? Please suggest what we need to bring for documentation.

I've only had one stamp on mine, and they didn't ask me about the others. I think as long as you have it in your file it'll be fine, MAYBE if you havies copy of your itineraries print them out and bring them with you

Hello Hivemind!

I'm a November applicant and need some info/advice re my situation. Just received my test date for May 30 (yay!). I am a Toronto applicant and my test center is Scarborough CIC (325 Milner Ave).

However, I have my yearly vacation planned from Mid June till the first week of July. Given the timeline, it seems there is a high chance of getting the oath during that time. When I looked into the database, I see a couple of Toronto applicants who gave their oath on the same day or the day after the test date. Can anyone share how that came to be?

I was wondering, if there is any way to request for a specific oath date. Also, if any Toronto applicant can share their experience and the time it took to get the oath from the test date, that would also give me a rough idea.

Any advice re my situation is welcome! :)

Scarborough ceremonies are not updated for post May 23 so if u see any ceremony May 31 on the list few days later expect the officer inviting u for next day ceremony on interview day. Otherwise u will just have to inform officer of ur travelling and hope they invite u before or after that

Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) act enables residents of Canada to get details on their application, which include electronic notes from the officer and any movement on their application. It gives a pretty good picture of where your application stands, any red flags and a reassurance that you have not missed any communication from the processing office.

To Apply: https://atip-aiprp.apps.gc.ca/atip/welcome.do
I am trying to apply but it bumps me out and says its a pilot project site ? Confuse how you guys did it

The officer will ask you if you have plans to go outside the country, just tell him/her your itenerary.
