    Driving Letter from Saudi Arabia

    So you renewed your license first and then you got the letter? What does it say in the letter if you don't mind me asking? Driver's license was issued in 2014 or 2019?

    Driving Letter from Saudi Arabia

    Have any of you gotten this "report" after renewing your driver's license? Does it show the first date of issue when you got your driver's license or does it show the date of issue for the current driver's license? For example, say I got my driver's license for 10 years in 2001. Then when I...

    Transfer of funds from Saudi Arabia (SAMBA Bank) to Canada (TD Bank)

    Update: Even though this is an old post, I will update it in case others come across the same issue. I am not sure when SAMBA, or maybe other banks, started doing this but I guess some time in 2019. You have to go to the bank and ask to fill a "EDD Form" which basically asks some security...

    Employer [HR] refuses official job letter with addnl. detailed job duties

    I'm not sure on the notarizing part. Since you are this far into the application process, I believe the signed documents should be sufficient. Just try to get them sent as soon as possible, if not already. Don't be alarmed by your application being recommended for review. There could be several...

    A colleague of mine recently said it took about two weeks. So don't be in a rush. Also, you will probably get a notification of your passport before CIC is updated. This seems to be the case for almost everyone.

    I would add a personal letter from your manager/supervisor, in addition to what you have mentioned above. The letter should contain ALL the requirements of an experience letter and signed by them.

    Post AOR request for proof of travel history

    That's only IF you have a US visa. If you don't, there is nothing to provide. Just continue like you said with the scans of your passports of your travel history in the past 10 years.

    Help regarding landing

    That is the purpose of the immigration visa, to enter Canada and land as a permanent resident. Do not worry that your work permit has expired. It is actually good that you left Canada as staying there with an expired work permit would not be good. But that depends on when you received your PR...

    Yes, just email the Canadian embassy in KSA, not UAE. It starts from there. The rest of the steps mentioned are accurate.

    My AOR was on November 20th. I was asked to provide additional documents in December (can't remember exact date but early December) and I am still in the process of obtaining one of them. How about yourself?

    Final decision Your application was approved. Check your messages below for details.

    Yes to both questions, that is what I submitted and it will be enough. Also, bear in mind that they process hundreds, if not thousands, of applications from several countries so they are fully aware of the shortcomings or "standards" or "issues" within these locations. So far what I have seen...

    In Saudi Arabia, they don't provide an affidavit. What they do instead is stamp that it is a certified translation and the stamp itself contains the certification number of the translation office, the name of the translation office and that's about it. They also bond the original document with...
