Applying for Canadian Citizenship | COVID-19

IRCC is still accepting new citizenship applications during COVID-19. However, there will be delays in the processing of all immigration applications.


There are also a few other important differences to the way Canadian citizenship applications are being handled temporarily.


All Canadian Citizenship Events Are Cancelled


All citizenship events are cancelled until further notice. This includes:


If your citizenship event was cancelled, you should check the information letter sent by IRCC. IRCC will send you a new date and time as soon as possible.



How to Check the Processing of Your Citizenship Application


You can check the status of your application online, or contact IRCC using the web form.


Submitting Your Citizenship Application Documents


If IRCC requests documents for your application, you will have an extra 90 days from the deadline in the request letter to submit them. This extension applies to all citizenship applications, which include:



Physical Presence Requirement


Extra days spent abroad due to COVID-19 will not count as days in Canada. You must still meet the physical presence requirement for the citizenship application.
