Citizenship

Hi All 

Just mailed our citizenship application off yesterday from SK. 

Processing time says 11 months on CIC website. But know of a friend last year who got the invitation to write test in less than 5. 

Any more good news shorter processing times out there?

Not for us... My timeline is in my signature. Applied in June, wrote the test in January and haven't heard anything since. My neighbour also applied last year in April and he still hasn't been invited to the oath ceremony yet either. One thing to bear in mind is that different cities have vastly different processing times.

On the topic of citizenship a big benefit of a Canadian passport is travelling almost anywhere in the world without a visa. But I just read that the EU is changing rules and Canadians will need a visa to enter the EU from 2021! I’m shocked.

I actually read that. But it’s sounds easier than getting a shengen visa from scratch as South Africans have to do now. 

You can apply online. It’s valid for 3 years and only costs $10.

Good to know. Planning a multi-city trip in Europe this year so doesn’t affect me...yet. 😉

I initially thought this is only for US citizens but I guess not.
