I need to travel back to US for work post my citizenship oath date. Can I travel once i receive the citizenship certificate and just return to Canada on my US passport with Certificate. Since I know I won't likely have my passport before I need to travel. I assume also for this oath I believe I saw in other threads you do need to be in Canada.

Hi MW2015, curious if your travel to the US worked out? We are am in the same situation. Taking our oath next week and need to travel back to the US before we will have our Canadian passport. We are all US citizens. Were you able to use your citizenship certificate and did you transit through the land border or air?

Ironically, I am also from Stouffville, ON! Small world!

You can- I have had this confirmed by CBSA and the Passport office. Take your certificate with you-- if you don't have your certificate by then, you may run into issues because you have no paperwork proving you're Canadian.

However if you have NEXUS, do NOT use it until you can update it with your Canadian citizenship info.

Thanks a bunch for the info! We do have Nexus but will be avoiding it, due to Covid we have a number of documents we need to update in the system still before we can use Nexus.

Travel scheduled for 5/7 so we will see if I get passport or not. Or will try to use citizenship certificate.
