About the online citizenship test

If we invited you for an online test, you

- If you need an extension, email the office that sent you the test invitation with your explanation.
- Our officers give extensions on a case-by-case basis.
- must be in Canada to take the test
- can wait until the in-person tests resume (date to be determined) if you can’t or don’t want to do the online test
We’ll invite you for an online test
- as soon as possible

The test is 30 minutes long. Give yourself at least 1 hour to prepare for the test (for example, to get your photo ID, set up your webcam and make sure your device is working).
