As we know, Canada is a country that is filled with numerous opportunities for one and all seeking an equal chance. If you want to move to study, visit or work, there are many ways to become one. After moving to Canada, many people tend to stay back and acquire Canadian citizenship. Only after receiving your citizenship certificate will you get your Canadian passport. Below are a few ways in which you can become a Canadian citizen.
- Check your eligibility
Under many conditions, you should meet eligibility, which the law determines. Some of the criteria points are age, permanent resident status, language requirement, physical presence test, probation if needed, and most importantly, passing the Canadian citizenship test. You should make sure before filling out the form that you meet the eligibility criteria which the government has issued. You need to collect the required documents and fill out the application form and send it to the address which is available online.
- Filling out the application form
There are three different types of applications, namely: adults, minors, and Canadian armed forces. After successfully covering the application form, you must pay minimum charges. As of now, the costs are 100 and 530 for application. After you successfully fill out the form is when your processing for citizenship will begin.
- Cross-check the processing time
Depending on the region of your application, your application type could be a routine application or a non-routine application, affecting your processing time. A typical routine application processing would take around 12 months; on the other hand, the processing for a non-routine application is 36 months. The period may vary from application type. In case of any discrepancy with the documents, one has to appear before your test date in front of the judge.
- Getting confirmation and preparing for the test
You will receive a confirmation that will be sent to you, which states the application process. Another notice after this is sent that invites you to the office of the CIC officer concerning the interview. The test after this is based on the information put in the study guide, which would also check your knowledge which states your rights, responsibilities, Canada’s system of government, symbols, and geography. The test can be either oral or written.
- Prepare for the citizenship ceremony and take the oath of citizenship
After successfully clearing the test and when you clear all the other requirements regarding citizenship, your last step would be taking the oath, which is called the oath of citizenship. On the day you took the oath of citizenship, you would be given the citizenship certificate. Every adult or child aged over 14 years has to take the oath of citizenship and should bring in all the required documents, including your permanent residency card.
