My Aor is 28jan 2019 and currently Mep passed Bio is done. One thing keeps bothering me is that one of the PCC obtained from Kazakhstan had 2 pages as translations from certified translator with their stamp but on 3rd page there was a notary note saying this is certified translator. Since the initial pages had translator stamp their address and sign i stupidly didn't include the last page from notary. Do you think it will cause problem? Shall i raise a, how do you call it CSE? What does it stand for and how do you do it?

Part 2 of 2: Most Common Reasons for Rejection

Most common is PCC:

a. Not included

b. No Coloured Scan attached

c. Dates don't cover complete period of stay (for e.g. you stayed in one address until 13th August but PCC cover dates till 31st July – don’t miss even one day)

d. The wrong PCC attached (includes not attaching PCC where you have lived more than 6 months – calculate your stay duration by adding all stays and include PCC if combine stay is 180 days or more)

e. LOE: Not writing explanation of why you weren’t able to attach PCC required and what you have done so far – attach evidence such as PCC Application submitted

f. Incomplete Documents – Some countries require additional documents such as consent forms for IRCC to directly get info therefore, it is important to read carefully CIC Guidance for each specific country before applying.

g. States PCC – Some countries do not have Central/Federal PCC System and therefore, you are advised to get PCC from all states you have lived (For work, study, and residential purpose excluding short stays). In addition, read CIC guidance, as they sometimes require Federal PCC as well instead of just State PCC.

h. Change in Circumstance such as visiting country after having PCC will not remain valid so you need to be careful and may need to apply for PCC again.


Medical Reports:

a. This includes failure to get Upfront Medical or After Letter from IRCC for any reason.

b. In addition, if you have any physical or mental issues the IRCC will reject your application and will advise you to set a meeting with your panellist for further advice or treatment plans – I know some people who recovered after some medication or physiatrist help and got PR later on.

c. Very rare but most significant error I saw was when one person submitted a report from a doctor who was not registered as approved panellist – see from CIC website before booking appointment.

d. Ensure you know what tests are required. Although, it is very rare on one occasion candidate only told panellist that she needs a test for Canada not indicating PR (nowadays for EE) and result was that Full Examination was not done resulting in rejection. {However, that panellist was dropped from approved list after short time but you must be careful if you are not booking appointment from well-reputed institute or Doctor.}


Conversion of Files:

a. Only convert files in the approved format and not just what suits best to you

b. If you are using software’s or online tools for PDF conversion then it is recommended to test it on different readers (such as Foxit or Adobe) before submitting. IRCC will be using Adobe Acrobat so make sure your files (all pages) will open in it. There is a case where IRCC rejected the incomplete application due to files not opening in Adobe (file was converted using Foxit).

c. Your documents must be clear and readable after reducing its size (it is recommended to not have a file below 150)

d. Always convert or scan your file in Color version unless where states by the IRCC to have a grayscale or black and white.


Passport and Visa Status:

a. It is important to attach your Passports and Residential Cards (if applicable) along with your file.

b. Make sure all pages with stamps are also included as IRCC rejected the application in past for not having a stamp for existing of one of the countries.


Education:

a. Not including ECA report or only including ECA number

b. Not including Degrees and Transcripts – please note that IRCC will reject incomplete files unlike OINP, which asks for additional information.

c. If you have distant learning course or studied in a different country than where the Institute is located then include this in Letter of Explanation and clearly mention your status.


Experience:

a. Not including Job responsibility letters or not matching with NOC.

b. Documents submitted cannot be verified the due lack of information of company available online.

c. Company registered in the house or residential area that may raise the question on quality of work performed.

d. Could not answer questions or satisfy officer during a formal interview.


These are the most common Reasons identified from the sample of more than 1,000 applicants in 2016/17.
After I sent my application, I realised there were a misspelling in my name on my PCC. My name is Vilfrant they wrote Vilfant. I had another copy of the PCC with the correct name on it, so I raised a CSE and uploaded the correct PCC. Will my application rejected?

Hello everyone. If RPRF was not paid upfront, in what post-AOR stage will it be requested by CIC? When RPRF is requested, does it mean his application already passed and just waiting for the PPR date? Anyone who experienced otherwise like ADR, interview, or refusal even after RPRF Request? Thank you!

RPRF will be requested at any time. Even when it is requested, it means nothing other than the application is under process. Refusals can and have happened post RPRF. Prior to 2018 RPRF was a strong indication for forthcoming PPR. But it is no longer the case.

There are tons of threads on this topic. Read.

Hello,

I applied for Study Permit but was refused. As at the time of the application, I was working but it wasn't relating to what I studied in my Undergraduate and also not relating to the master's program I was going for in canada. Therefore on my application, "No Work" was inputed between that one year gap (OCT 2017 - OCT 2018).

Now, I want to apply for Express Entry and I need that working experience to get the max point for Foreign Work Experience. If I add it to my profile, won't that be seen as Misrepresentation since I will be declaring my Study Visa refusal and I want to claim points with it?

I will appreciate your say. Thank you.

You details are already in the system. New details that diverge from previous info will be deemed as misrepresentation. Do not lie, else you will be banned from applying for any Canadian visa for at least 5 years.

So with 12 days left I received RPRF request then with 8 days left I got ADR for WES ECA.:confused:

What are the chances of rejection now? It doesn't really make sense asking for RPRF so late if there was something amiss with my application

hello everyone,
I received my ITA on 3 April, 2019.
My work experience is as follows:
Company A: Oct 15-Oct 18 (3 years)
Company B: Nov 18 - Present
while creating the EE profile I mentioned both these experiences, But I can not reveal my Canada plans to Company B(current employer) and hence can't obtain the employment letter with job responsibilities, although I do have the appointment letter and salary slips. since this job contributes only 5 months to the work history, can I remove this experience from work history and mention it only under personal history? I have read at many places that this can be done for previous (old) jobs but I am not sure If the current work can be removed. Please suggest.

Curious to know if file is in IP2 stage and marked with RR for work experience, then how long does it take in processing? Does it takes more than 6 months?
