no, still pending. i am guessing it will change once i have gone through the citizenship journey programme. it is still technically "In Principal Approval" until then.

Hi AmarettoSour, congrats on your citizenship! I'm submitting my documents tomorrow and I'm wondering what will the interview be like? what questions will they ask?

Appreciate everyone's help.

They will just verify all your original documents and take a copy of them along with the application.

Hi SingaporeFlyer,

Oh I see. I thought there will be some real "interview" where they will ask questions.

Thanks for your info! Are you a SC yourself? When did you get yours approved and how long was the wait?
