    Just sharing the journey so far:

    PCCs
    1. Had to obtain PCCs for Qatar, Netherlands, Germany and India, all from India as I reside here.
    2. Had to do so for myself and my wife.
    3. In my list, Qatar PCC is by far most difficult as they need a fingerprint (holiday to office for wife and myself:p), and most importantly, they write dates of first entry and last exit. Learnt from this forum that if one entered Qatar on business visa, Qatar does not easily include those dates on the PCC in which case PCC is invalid for all purposes concerning IRCC. In my case, my wife had entered on business visa before getting residence permit.
    4. Had to pursue convincing Qatari authorities by sitting here in India about including the right dates through my Qatari agent; a time consuming, risky and expensive affair just to hire an agent.
    5. Indian PCC for Qatar: Qatar also needs a PCC from India (one more holiday for me and my wife:(). Visit to local passport office.
    6. Regarding Dutch PCC, I took a cue from others in the forum and got it done before submitting eAPR. It was the easiest PCC as I didn't have to represent in person. Filled the forms and sent via email. No holiday to office:p.
    7. Regarding German PCC, had to visit consulate in India, then couriered forms certified there to Germany. Holiday to office:rolleyes:.
    8. Got German to English translation done.
    9. Regarding Indian PCC for Canada, passport office does not give one appointment for two PCCs (Qatar and Canada); needs two appointments for two PCCs. Two more holidays for me and my wife:eek:.
    WES: PhD, MSc, Bachelors and Diploma
    1. Had 4 degrees to take care of, from three different countries for myself
    2. In addition, had wife's MSc from Germany and Bachelor's from India.
    3. Emails to German and Dutch universities worked fine.
    4. My PhD, MSc and my wife's MSc degrees required Dutch to English and German to English translations.
    5. Turns out Bachelor's and Diploma from India were most difficult. Getting transcripts meant physically traveling 400 km and three days of holidays to office:eek::eek:.
    6. Fortunately Diploma college was in my city. Had to travel there thrice though:rolleyes:.
    7. WES work went perfectly well and on time;).
    Work experience letter:
    1. Had 8 years of work experience from two companies in two NOCs.
    2. Decided to show only previous company experience after seeing advice on this forum.
    3. Previous employer cooperated and did not have to spend another holiday to visit them;);)
    4. Thanks to the experience shared on this forum, this allowed me not to rock the boat at current employment.
    IELTS W/L/S/R
    Wife: 7.5/8.5/8.0/8.5 CLB 10/10/10/10
    Self: 7.0/9.0/8.0/8.5 CLB 9/10/10/10

    All in all: The journey is actually yet to begin. Some struggles are fun. So are holidays to achieve goals:):)
