Hi All

Just had my MEP and BIL received.
I had also a request to submit Original PCC from the country I was not able to obtain one. In my application I have attached LOE with Embassy email and my employer'e email. So I did not attach PCC for a given country.

I wonder, if IRCC is not satisfied with my LOE and still requesting PCC or its just standard process to request PCC at this stage if its missing? If its latter, should I just attach the same LOE again?

When do I know if pcc exemption was given or not?

Many thanks for feedback!

There is no exemption from getting a PCC, according to IRCC website. It must be submitted in whatever format deemed verifiable by them. You should try to get it to avoid your application being turned down. If your nearest embassy can't serve you , then try to get it through a friend or a family member at that country whom may apply on your behalf or try to speak to the embassy staff directly and see if there any other way to get it.

The only real PCC exemption is when it's literally impossible to get it. Say you lived in Iraq while it was still a functional country, before the war. It is now literally impossible to get a PCC from Iraq because of the issues they've had.

If you don't fall into that exception (and you probably don't) then you will have to get the PCC.

Iraq is the country I am not able to get PCC. I even hired lawyer who made attempts to get a PCC on my behalf but unsuccessful.

I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you, but you should open a new thread with the subject "How do I get a PCC from Iraq" or something similar, and someone should be able to help out since this isn't an unknown issue.

I had meeting with Iraqi Consul recently, and she basically said it is impossible to get PCC from Iraq due to current situation etc.
Though she suggested that she can write an formal written letter on behalf of Embassy. It will not be PCC but a official letter. I am not sure what she has to mentioned in that letter...
