Demand Draft:
Greetings Dubai Applicants, need your assistance, I got to know that Demand Draft to Canada has been cancelled? We are not able to do Demnd Draft to Canada, is there any ways to send our funds without carrying cash? Is there any other options aside from Bank/Demand Draft?
Thanks!

Use travel card , use your debit card, use internet banking (except you want to close your account in UAE before leaving), use a trusted friend :p to send your cash for you when you arrive, or send to your trusted friends/relative account in canada or send western union to yourself......i can go on and on

Hello it's me!

So i went through my interview a couple of days ago in Abu Dhabi.
To shed light to others, the interview is basically for them (Canada embassy) to verify the compatibility of the chosen NOC against my work experience.. the key is just to be confident (and not overdoing it) and be truthful!

Only that! I am now awaiting for the email they told me for the next steps to do!
All the best to everyone in this new path we are traversing!
Thank you so much for that.

What is your timeline? They called for interview after how much time of AOR?
Do they often call for interviews? If they do, do they call secondary applicant as well?
How did they contact for the interview? How long the interview lasted?

2) Could anyone please advice what items we must take from Dubai while relocating? For example I am little bit confused about to take my furniture or not cause the condition of the furniture are not not good at this moment,i need to buy.Is it wise to buy and send from here?
Like someone told me bed mattress ,curtain,carpet etc are expensive there.

Thanks

your question depends on your circumstance:
1. Whos is paying for the shipment? you or your employer? If its you then no need to ship, just go with the necessary things that you can.Sell off all your property here.

2. How new or elegant or expensive are the property? ........if its not so majestic.....then no need

google shipping agents,there are so many of them. you cant say which is cheaper because it all depends on individual and what your shipping. I will advice you to invite all the shipping agents that you can get in UAE to come to your house and give you quotation, then you can decide on shipment/or no shipment

Thank you
As per my queries done via phone provided on website. They don't open account here. They help you to open an account in their canada branch prior to your landing by verifying your PR documents here in uae.

Transfer of money is up to you. What ever method you select. They dont take deposits here.

Hi,

As per the below instruction (source link : http://www.uae-embassy.ae/Embassies/ca/Content/1184 ) today i collected the certificate but i observed there is only 1 month validity expiry date is mentioned 15th May 2016.But i am planning to move to Canada in July 2016.

Basically before moving to Canada i want to to stay in my home country for 2/3 months that's why i collected it now.Is anyone here face same issue or what can i do in future?

Instruction mentioned in above link:
"1) Obtain a validation letter/experience letter from the same Traffic Department in the United Arab Emirates that issued the driver’s license originally.
(for example, if the license was issued in Abu Dhabi, the validation letter must be obtained from the Abu Dhabi Traffic Department).
Chat Conversation End"

Also from where i can make my UAE driving license as international DL.

regards

The efficient way is demand Draft via bank, we used Emirates and Habib AG Zurich.

which area in canada did you ship your stuffs to?
was it 90 days or 60 days?
90 days is late ....because these guys always advertise and say it will take 60days.
