Hello All,

I m going to apply for my citizenship next week and was checking for the requirements and wanted to check with anyone who has gone through the same thing.

1. I had a name change (added Surname) to my name back in the day and have Xerox of the newspaper but not the original newspaper cutting and cannot obtain one as it was in 2011 so is it ok to attach the copies.
2. I have not completed 5 years on resident visa (2 months) short but when I checked online, I m getting the message that I m able to apply so wanted to check this as well.

One of my friend who got his PR 2 months after me already applied in mid November and has already got his citizenship approved.

Thanks in advance
