@legalfalcon Dear Legal Falcon,

I am so worried and need your help please!
I applied for the Express Entry on 10 October 2017 and received my AOR for the Federal Skilled Worker Category (Outland).

I was required to submit a police certificate from Dubai, UAE, as I stayed there for a few months from 2007 till 2008. However, as I travelled on a visit visa to Dubai, the Dubai Police authority emailed me and said that they do not issue a Police Certificate on a visit visa. I got a similar reply on email from the UAE embassy in my country.

I explained this in my application for the Express Entry and also attached the email proof from the Dubai police and the UAE embassy. Today, I received a message from CIC saying that they need an updated Dubai Police Certificate from me. This is what they wrote:
"We are continuing to review your application for admission to Canada. We require an updated original Police Certificate for you.
In order to obtain a Police Certificate, please refer to the following website:
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/.security/index.asp
Please note: The above information/documents must be received within 60 days from the date of this correspondence. If this deadline is not met, your application will be assessed based on the information that was provided with your application and your application could be rejected. Please upload these documents to your MyCIC account.
If the issuing authority procedure is to send the police certificate directly to the IRCC office, please refer them to the following address (They have given the Sydney, NS office address)"

I don't know what to do now and would really appreciate any legal advice from you. Please help!

No need to panic. You just need to write a letter and explain that you never lived in UAE as a resident. Therefore you are not allowed to get a PCC.
The letter must be well drafted and should provide the details. That is all that you need to do.
Also, if you have a letter or an email from UAE, you can include that too.

Hi @legalfalcon

I got my COPR and visa stamped today. Have one query though. In the COPR its written City of Destination : Ottawa . I am not PNP applicant. FSW - Outland only. Should I really need to go to Ottawa itself or can land anywhere other than Quebec ?

Thanks in advance

If you are a FSW, you can land in any city in Canada, except Quebec. You can move to Quebec after you land. The city name in CoPR has no relevance.

For details read -
https://www.getgcms.com/blog/understanding-provincial-nomination-pogram/

The first 3 paras are for FSW.

Some jobs are regulated in Canada. You would need a license or certification to practice these jobs. Do you know if your primary occupation or trade is regulated

Hey @legalfalcon there are some research questions in EE profile my occupation is regulated but I have not done anything about license procedure and as I am working in NOC 4031 but I dont have B.Ed so I am not eligible for license as you said that we dont need to meet employment requirements to claim foreign work exp so what should I answer to these questions if answering NO will affect my application? If I answer yes then CIC would know that this person dont have required skills to get license in canada so how will he apply for license it means he is telling a lie, and this could become a reason for rejection.

Can you help please??

And last question is, is CIC getting more strict on licensed occupations and for a person to claim work exp he/she should have required degree in that field? Do you see this as becoming mandotary in future

Thanks
These are research questions and do not impact your application. They are only to collect information for IRCC's figures.

Hi @legalfalcon,

Thank you for your time and advice as always.

I have received PPR and sent the passports of me and my husband to Singapore visa office. It has just been a week and I assume no COPR is done yet.

Today I received the GCMS note ordered earlier. In the GCMS note, under "finalize / COPR" section for me, the passport number and expiry date are of my husband! Under his section, the info is correct.

<from GCMS>

COPR

Name: my name
Travel document: my husband's passport number


COPR
Name: my husband's name
Travel document: my husband's passport number

I'm not sure what may be the implication. Will the COPR printed on my passport later also be wrong? I have sent an email to Singapore visa office praying it will be checked soon. Other than this, is there anything I need to do. Or am I overthinking...

Thank you so much.

No need to worry. Just wait for your documents to arrive. If there is anything incorrect, then you can ask IRCC to amend it.

Hello @legalfalcon its like that since a month now what should i do Sir ?


My PNP PR paper based application says " your action required " AOR Jan 3rd 2017 received the application October 20th 2016 . I linked my profile last month to my IRCC account and noticed the above message i went into the application and there is no message or email from IRCC what does it mean is it a bug ? or did i miss something from IRCC as i just linked my account ? Do i have to order GCMS notes to see or upload a Schedule A form from Web link ?

You should raise a technical query and also send a CSE asking if there is any ADR or an action which you need to do.
No you do not need GCMS notes. GCMS notes only tell you the status of your application. You can order GCMS notes to see the status of your application.

Hello legalfalcon, Could you please answer a question for me.

How much time it takes for CIC to respond/grant extension of 60/30 days to submit FBI PCC. When can I see that I am granted the extension.

Thank you in advance :)

Have you submitted your application?

Did you have a LoE seeking extension? If you did, then as soon as the R10 is done the extension will be given.

Hello legalfalcon,

Details of my case are:
AOR- Jan-13-2017
PNP (Ontario)
Indian living in USA
Medicals passed on March 15th
Eligibility and Criminality passed on June 19th
SS started on July 17th
SS completed by CSIS on Sept 22nd

Last GCMS notes generated on Oct 3rd showed 3 activities of SS and 1 of Security.

I flew in to Canada yesterday on a visitor visa. At the airport, I requested the CBSA officer to look into my application and here is what I was told:

Everything seems to be in place........there has been a lot of activity on my file in the month of October........they are checking (getting) information on medical exams.......last entry was on Oct 31st

My question is that my medicals were passed on March 15th, so what is the reason that IRCC is looking into medicals again?

Please advise, many thanks!!
To know you will need an updated set of medicals. In most cases the files are reviewed and the system will show a movement, that does not necessarily mean that they are review it again.

Hi @legalfalcon

I have couple of doubts to clear,

1. the PCC should be addressed to whom? The high commission or Visa Officer of IRCC?
2. The reference letters to be addressed to whom? Visa officer of IRCC or To whom it may concern?
3. Bank letters to be addressed to The high commission or Visa Officer of IRCC?
4. Does the PCC need to mention my wife's address before marriage or just the current one where she lives with me? Her home town is in the same main city as my home town, just 8-10 KMs apart.
5. We were renting a house near her home town after marriage for about 7-8 months. Does this need to be mentioned in the PCC?
6. I was on probation for 6 months when I joined a new company in 2015. I got confirmed in mid 2016. Can I calculate the probation period of 06 months when calculating the experience for EE?


1. the PCC should be addressed to whom? The high commission or Visa Officer of IRCC?
The PCC is not address to anyone, it is issued in the standard format of the country issuing it. Just take what is provided.

2. The reference letters to be addressed to whom? Visa officer of IRCC or To whom it may concern?
They can be, "to whomsoever it may concern," no need for a specific name.

3. Bank letters to be addressed to The high commission or Visa Officer of IRCC?
They can be, "to whomsoever it may concern," no need for a specific name. For more on PoF, see
https://www.getgcms.com/blog/proof-funds-requirement-express-entry/


4. Does the PCC need to mention my wife's address before marriage or just the current one where she lives with me? Her home town is in the same main city as my home town, just 8-10 KMs apart.
The address will depend on which country you are getting the PCC from. If its India, and you are getting the PCC from PSK, then it has o address and there is no need for it. The same with the FBI PCC.

5. We were renting a house near her home town after marriage for about 7-8 months. Does this need to be mentioned in the PCC?
See above.

6. I was on probation for 6 months when I joined a new company in 2015. I got confirmed in mid 2016. Can I calculate the probation period of 06 months when calculating the experience for EE
Yes, you can calculate probation in work ex.

@legalfalcon i raised a CSE and also sent email to NDVO but haven't heard from them yet..
You will have to just wait and keep sending reminders every week. The process is painfully slow.

You can add the bank statements for the last 6 months and explain in LoE that the bank does not provide average bank balance, so you are including the bank statements.

Thank you @legalfalcon,

The police department in my home country requests the name of the institute to address the PCC in their application. For this I need to provide a name. So what shall I provide?
