I haven't been monitoring my online status after our oath. I guess, its not important for me anymore. I did check after reading your message. Yes, its been updated to complete with a note "You became a Canadian citizen on MMDDYYY". My focus now is the passport. It's not an easy process since you need a guarantor. The guarantor needs to fill in a portion of the application sheet and sign. Plus, you also need 2 references. I will do it this week. Out of topic: As a new citizen, we were given free access to parks, museums and etc. for a year, starting on the day you become a citizen. I guess for now, we will enjoy the perks. Next goal, reacquire our original citizenship. :rolleyes:

My process took close to 18 months but it's done! After I did the test in January 2019, in February 2019 I received a letter dated December 2018 (during the Canada Post strikes) requesting info regarding my entries/exits to/from the US. So my status didn't change to 'Decision Made' for a while after that. The letter said that if I don't respond within 30 days it could show that I've abandoned my intent to apply for citizenship, but I sent the info and it all worked out. Hang in there, guys!

I'm June application and have not received an invite yet.
Have either of you tried one or all of the below? May help.
1) Calling IRCC
2) Filling out a webform to ask for status
3) Filing for GCMS notes
4) Contacting your Member of Parliament

If you have received your AOR via e-mail, it should contain your file number.
Thank you. I have ordered it now and will wait. Do you think i should order also CBCS & CSIS notes? two month ago when i spoke to IRCC agent, i was told that my security check is competed.

CBCS? For CSIS I think just wait, especially considering this thread: https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/anyone-requested-atip-from-csis.560723/ - I mean it makes sense CSIS aren't going to share much beyond "Pending" or "Completed".

Possibly also what you were told, although we have seen empirically here that what an agent says is not always 100% accurate (or multiple posts were made not fully understanding the answers).

Good luck.

Guys, hope every thing is well,
I have applied sept 2018, AOR was dec 2018, test done and passed on 26 oct 2019, since that day and until now my status didn’t change to “DM” however my interview was straight forward and the agent said you should be receiving the oath shortly, my questions are as follows:
1. Is it normal to have this delay in changing the status to DM?
2. What could be the reasons for the delayed status change ?
3. Can I receive the oath without having the status changed to DM ? It is it a must step ?
4. Being sept 2018 applicant, is this too late ? Or any body else is facing the same delay ?
5. What should I do?
Thanks in advance for your replies and support as I am so tense and I feel so depressed

Hi, I took my test and passed on Nov. 27, 2019. My application is still in process. So I called IRCC help center. You can find their number on the website. They told me it could take a month to be DM...though it seems a lot of people got DM next day after test. They also told me if after a month it is still in process then I could call help center for help. I guess you could call help center and ask them for details of your application? Could you please inform me of their response cuz I also want to take oath as soon as possible

I have had my test done and passed May 2019 and till now my status still shows in progress. My application started October 2017!
Been calling IRCC and submitting webforms almost on monthly basis. Been to the MP twice and it's always the same answer. In progress.
My interview went well with no issues, no further information requested. Been 7 months since and no DM yet. MP office says it's back log in the Scarborough office and they are swamped with applications. But I can't really see that as an excuse for over 2 years delay

i heard that calling them won't be fruitful and it won't solve or move or speed up anything, i was checking if i am the only person who experience this or no and if thee are some other ppl experienced the same what was the end product results, was it good or bad ? did they get the oath invite at the end or no ?
