Canadian Citizen Resumption
At Preszler Immigration Lawyers, we are often contacted by people who wish to resume their Canadian citizenship. However, in order to do so, you must satisfy various requirements to resume your Canadian citizenship. To qualify, you must have been a Canadian citizen in the past, have become a permanent resident of Canada after you’ve lost your Canadian citizenship, have met your personal income tax filings for the taxation year immediately prior to application, have been physically present in Canada is a permanent resident for at least 365 days in the two years immediately prior to your application and have no unfulfilled conditions relating to your status as a permanent resident.
Conversely, you will not be able to resume your Canadian citizenship if you have had your Canadian citizenship revoked or taken away, have been the subject of a removal order or are prevented or prohibited from being granted citizenship.
In order to resume your Canadian citizenship, you’ll need to complete the application process which includes the completion of the Application to Resume Canadian Citizenship form together with the requirement to provide citizenship photos in accordance with the specifications required by the Minister. If your citizenship was revoked, there is a separate application that will need to be completed.
To streamline the process, at Preszler Immigration Lawyers, we have experience identifying the requirements that will be needed for some successful applications. To request a consultation, call Preszler Immigration Lawyers at 1-800-CITIZEN.
