One more questions: does anyone know if it's true that the longer the wait, the higher the chance that it won't be a reject? Does anyone know of anybody who was being turned down after, say, 22-24 months of wait?
Longer wait does not have any impact on the application result. It might be like many applications in the queue? or takes time to validate your credentials? etc

Yes, there are cases which have been turned down after 2 years? Will this help you?
I just got my AIP this week, and completed my e-journey! Thanks so much for all of you guys' kind reply which I'm sure brought me luck in some way.
Just received my AIP this week! Can check if you were able to do the community sharing & visit required given the current covid condition?

Congrats!! I don't think community sharing or experiential tour requirement will be waived.

I had received AIP in mid-late Feb. Managed to do experiential tour, but community sharing session that was open for registration in my area was only in Apr which got canceled due to covid. Deadline for completion has been extended. Realistically, will have to wait for another couple of months or more I guess.

For those looking for my profile :
Age : mid 30s.
Education : Postgrad from a local univ
Race : Indian
Salary : 1xx,xxx per annum
Citizenship application sponsored by SC spouse with a somewhat similar profile.
PR (PTS) for 5 years+ now. Was on EP and student pass for a total of 9 years+.
Applied online mid 2018, submitted docs (interview) late 2018. Had an SC baby 1 year after that.

You are one month over the longest I've seen. But who's to say. What we know is what we see on here. We are only the tip of the iceberg.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Hi, i’ve applied for SC in March 2020. After 20months finally on the main page the status reflected as Approved on 15 Nov. However when i click on the check status link (Page with Application list & uploading of documents) it’s still pending. What does this mean??? Confused mode. :???:

Anyway just to share my background - currently a PR since born, early 30s, diploma & still living with parents (BTO ready in 2023). Apparently, on 14 Nov after i uploaded additional documents of my new foreign passport that i’ve just renewed last month, new job offer letter with first payslip (changed job last month), my husband’s (SC & sponsor) 6 months payslip at new employer (he worked only for 1 year) and my baby’s (SC) birth cert (gave birth in Oct 20) - i received an email enquiry from ICA the next day asking about whether me & my spouse are living together asking for an explanation why our current registered addresses (parents’) are different. Told them we’re still waiting for our BTO to complete in 2023 and got a reply that they are in the final stages of processing my application. The next day the status of my application reflected as approved on the main page.

At my workplace, there’s a minority race attendant in his 50s who said his SC application has been pending for 3 years… I don’t know if it’s actually 2 years+ and he rounded it up to 3 years but if it’s really 3 years, that’s the longest I’ve heard so far.
