Canadian Immigration What happens after Citizenship Test Video
You may be wondering what happens after you have taken your citizenship test. What is the next step? After taking the test, you will be invited to a Citizenship Ceremony where you will take the Oath of Citizenship. This oath essentially says you will be allegiant to Canada and is the final step to becoming a Canadian citizen. At the time of the oath, you will be given a physical citizenship certificate. Eventually, you will also receive a citizenship card in the mail. If you do not pass the written test, you will receive a letter giving you an opportunity to write it again. Should you pass the second time you take the written test, you will get another letter inviting you to take the oath of citizenship.
However, if you fail, you will be scheduled for an interview with an immigration officer. This interview will act as a verbal test, where the officer will ensure you can communicate in basic English or French, as well as understand the basics and responsibilities of a citizen. The interview will last for about 30 to 90 minutes, and the immigration officers are relatively nice – they’re mostly looking for your ability to communicate and answer basic questions. Once you pass this interview, you will get a letter saying you are ready to take the oath of citizenship. This interview is the last option to becoming a citizen; until you pass the interview, you will not be able to take the oath.
Fortunately, you have multiple opportunities to take the interview. That being said, citizenship applications can be a lengthy process. You want to ensure you are well-prepared and give it your best shot the first time around. Though regular citizenship applications take about a year and a half to 2 years, there have been situations in which the application was pending for 3-4 years. Therefore, each time you fail a test and require a second attempt, you are also adding more processing time for your application. To avoid this, it is best to submit a completed application and prepare well for the Citizenship Test such that you can pass immediately and take the oath as soon as possible.
If you have questions about the test or have waited longer than the regular processing time, give us a call and we can assist you in your application or possibly expedite the process for you. Good luck!
