Lpp still in progress. Application already over 24mo old. But just curious... If I'm called for a interview but I'm overseas, can I just do interview via zoom? Or need to be physically present in canada?

Depends on what type of interview is set. If it is a physical one you would have to be present in Canada. Also if on zoom and the expect you to be in Canada for, inform them you are not in Canada and they might approve your request to take it outside Canada.

Does anyone here know how the tracker behaves for the application of a Minor submitted with the parent?

In my family, all the adults have all items completed (except citizenship ceremony) and ECAS shows 'decision made'.
However, for the one minor in the family, 'Language Skills' and 'Physical Presence' are 'In Progress' and Citizenship test is 'Not Started'.
All these items do not apply to the minor (no physical presence requirement since applying with the parent).
Also, ECAS still shows 'In Process' instead of 'Decision Made'.

Does anyone know or have seen how the minor application gets to 'decision made'? Does the app-tracker show the not-applicable items as 'in progress' or 'completed' or something new such as 'Not applicable'?
Hello, we also have the same situation. Me and my husband got our citizenship certificate 2 days ago but did not receive for my daughter . I check her status in the tracker and its still in progress. Is that normal?

Did your daughter get her oath email?

Yeah, I called IRCC and got my application number.
Based on information from other threads, this is more likely a system glitch since the same situation happened to others as well.
Hey - I tried but they said wait for AOR. I explained the situation (same as yours) but no response. What did you say to them/what did they say issue was that helped you get the application number? Thanks!

I'm an oct 2021 online applicant and just got an email for an in person interview at the Mississauga office. What do they usually ask? How long is interview usually? And from people's experiences, how long until I'll get scheduled for oath taking ceremony? TIA
