I just wanted to clear my consfusions. Sorry if I made you mad. I made one mistake, I should have used years as Mr. A came in 2000 and applied in 2004.

Anyway, Thanks for your time

Bud.

Were you talking to an officer(unlikely) or a call centre employee (likely).

Hi Jim,

    > Were you talking to an officer(unlikely) or a call centre employee
(likely).

I spoke to a call centre employee -- Arrrgghhh!!! I am so stupid. But it
did say on the application form that if I had any questions I should call
the call-center.

Is it possible that I could have been given the wrong answer?

Narayan.

Who cares if anyone can PROVE you were outside of Canada? What about
you actually TELL THE TRUTH? Oooh...what a concept!

Count the days you were outside of the country, whether anyone can
'prove' it or not and if you're over the requirement, great. If not, wait a
little while longer.

If you have to get nitpicky over a couple of weeks, then what's it gonna
kill you to have to wait another month or two?

As Andrew says, it's better to be safe and sorry. That said, if you're
prepared to LIE - or just not give all the facts - just to get your Canadian
citizenship, then you're not really worthy of that citizenship.

Trikky,

I don't have to go for Citizenship. I am already Citizens of Canada. I was just trying to have some question, answered. Not trying to LIE or TELL THE TRUTH.

Thankyou very much.
Bud.

Um....in case you missed it, this thread was for (and in the context of)
those who were applying for citizenship. Therefore, any comments are based
on an assumption that you don't have citizenship. Of course, the terms
'you' or 'yours' etc are non-specific. Anyone else would have realised
that, I believe.
