    Before submitting your documents, we comprehensively review your application to ensure your file complies with the CBIC's requirements. Once this review is complete, our legal team will perform its final checks before submitting the relevant forms.

    The CBIC will undertake its own due diligence and review all the paperwork. Throughout this stage, we will continue to work closely with them to ensure your application is timely and efficiently processed.

  • MONTHS 6-12

    Citizenship issued
