I have been a permanent resident since 2014, I used the physical presence calculator and it said I am eligible to apply for citizenship on Jan 2018.

Do I still need to get police clearance from the countries I have lived for the past 5 years since I have passed this clearance when I applied my PR?
Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in and concerned about this situation.

You can find some detailed information in the Instruction Guide for the Application for Canadian citizenship – Adults (18 years of age or older) Applying under subsection 5(1).

Here is an excerpt,

Within the last 4 years, if you spent 183 days or more in another country (other than Canada), you must provide a police certificate. You must provide a police certificate for each country where you spent 183 days or more. If you cannot get a police certificate, tell us why.


You may also want to contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Call Centre directly for some information specific to your situation.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Hi I have a question I applied for Canadian citizenship my application was returned back due the photo specification not meeting the requirement criteria. I resubmitted my application without revising and attaching the photos but I heard it should be within the 90 days on April 14, 2019. I have a feeling it might be returned back.

So I have 2 questions

1) Is there any other criteria which I should consider while filing the application again
2) I got a provincial nomination from Saskatchewan and moved to Ontario couple of months after I received my permanent residency will it affect my application?

If there is anything else you can guide It will be really appreciated

Regards
