Help Centre what do you need help with?

What if I cannot attend my hearing with a citizenship officer or a citizenship judge? Can I reschedule it?

Yes. If you are not available on the date and time to meet with a citizenship officer or a citizenship judge as part of your application for citizenship, you must inform the office where you have been scheduled to appear. You will also be required to provide the reason why you are unable to attend.

The notice asking you to appear will contain the details of:

  • How to notify the office.
  • What will happen if you do not attend the meeting.

Your notice will come either by e-mail (to the address provided by you on your application form) or by paper notice in the regular mail.
