In order to apply for Citizenship in Canada or extend Permanent Residency one has to prove to the CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) that he or she has stayed in Canada for required period of time.
What if you have traveled abroad? In such a case days outside of Canada should be carefully counted to make sure you fulfill obligations of residency. It is crucial to have all passport stamps and visas to be translated to English or French and have such translation certified and notarized.
Translation is to be done as thoroughly as possible and close to the original so Citizenship and Immigration officer may compare and verify your original documents against the translations. It is essential that a translator does not do any guesswork while translating stamp impressions that are partially illegible (text is smeared, faded out or missing). If discrepancies are found, citizenship application will be returned to the applicant, but this may take up to a year, which means that a simple translation error may end up in such a great waste of time.
Apparently, a professional you entrust your passport stamps translation has to be certified and qualified expert in the matter in order to avoid confusions and misunderstandings in the application submitted to CIC.
