Applications for citizenship should not be sent unless the form is fully completed and accompanied by the following:
- The applicant’s current passport;
- Application fee;
- All the required supporting documents.
Due to the restrictions imposed by Covid-19, unprecedented delays are occurring in the issuing of acknowledgment receipts and the processing and return of documentation. The citizenship Department cannot guarantee the prompt return of original documents at this time.
Due to very lengthy delays in current processing time, we strongly advise you to NOT submit any new application until after Phase 4 of the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business (mid-July 2020).
