If I’m applying for citizenship, do I still have to submit the physical presence calculator if I submit the travel journal?
Yes, you must always submit one of the following physical presence calculators with adult, and some minor, citizenship applications:
- a printed copy of the online physical presence calculator
- the paper physical presence form (PDF, 2.23 MB) filled out by hand
An application without the physical presence calculator is incomplete, and we’ll return it to you.
You don’t need to submit the travel journal with your application. It’s for your personal use only, to help you complete the physical presence calculator.
