I applied for citizenship and I received a convocation letter to take the citizenship test. Unfortunately, I was late by 10 minutes and I was not let in to take the test. What should I do now?
Do not worry. You might get a chance to be rescheduled to take the test. You will need to contact the citizenship office as soon as possible. You will also need to send an official letter within 30 days with your reasons for your “no-show” as to why you were late. Otherwise, your application might be considered as abandoned and your file can be closed, which means that you would need to re-apply and re-pay the application fees. The local office handling your application will decide if you had valid reasons for missing the test. If your reasons are considered as valid, you will be rescheduled to take the test another time and day.
