Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

According to IRCC, online citizenship tests must also be taken inside Canada. You can find more information about this in the IRCC article, "About the online citizenship test."

We hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to follow up with us if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,

1. Actually it is possible to request to take the Citizenship test outside Canada.
2. From the CIC website: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/citizenship.html#oath


"This is what the Citizenship Test section says:
If you get your invitation and plan to take the test while you’re outside Canada, send an email to the address in the Eligibility section of your invitation.

In your email

  • put “Outside Canada – Citizenship Test” in the subject line
  • in the body of your message, include
    • your full name
    • your application number
    • the start and end date for your test
We’ll contact you with your next steps after we receive your email.
