What happens at the hearing with a citizenship officer?

At the hearing, the citizenship officer will orally ask you questions

The hearing will last 30 to 90 minutes. It helps us verify if you’re eligible for Canadian citizenship.

After your hearing, we’ll send you a letter with the results. If you

  • pass the hearing, wait for your invitation to the citizenship ceremony
  • don’t pass the hearing, we may refuse your application
