Check your application status

You may be able to check the status of your immigration or citizenship application online, depending on what you applied for.

You can check your application status only once we start processing your application. When we do start, we send you an acknowledgement of receipt letter or email with an application number. If you can’t check your status online, you can use processing times as a guide to find out how long it might take to process your application.
