    SARS refund

    Hey @CapieCanadian I'm not in a similar position, but I remember reading on the forum about a member who was successful in getting a refund paid into their Canadian bank account. Here's the thread: I hope it helps.

    SARS refund

    SARS is confident that they owe me a refund. I've given it enough time for them to realise if there's a mistake so I'm ready to proceed but I don't have a SA bank account anymore. I received a message from them requesting me to update my banking details since the refund couldn't be processed. Has anybody been in the same situation and what did you do?

    S.A Passport Renewal

    Hi @MaryJane We are based in Calgary, so will be sending our docs in. My question is more about the order of doing the things. ie. 1 Fill in all docs, 2. fingerprints, 3. notary? I don't want to get to the notary and then I weren't suppose to fill in everything... Thank you

    S.A Passport Renewal

    Hey @NadiaB, where are you located? If you are near Toronto, then you can do all these at the Consulate. They’ll fingerprint you and on Thursdays, they have someone at the Consulate that notarises documents. Bring your originals with copies. Fill out all the forms. If you are not anywhere near Toronto, then you have to send all these information in, notarised and with fingerprints. Please note, I am not sure what kind of schedule they have at the Consulate now with the current epidemic situation.

    Passport Renewals from Vancouver

    Hi @PR0718 We need to apply for my Husband's Passport now and was just wondering about the process as the website just feel chaotic. We already have our BI9 form, but at what stage do we need to do fingerprints and Notary. For example do you first fill in all the documentation, then fingerprints then the notary or do you have to fill in some information in front of the notary?Also, did you send in proof of PR or work permit?Thank you

    Self-employed - proof of work experience

    @Deirdre thanks for the suggestion. I did a search before posting, 30 min cursory check to see if anyone asked something similar before. Let me roll up my sleeves and dig a bit deeper

    Self-employed - proof of work experience

    Valid Canada COPR but stucked

    Hi @Godwin Some flight info I scrolled across on FB https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2534861883510172&id=1468900780106293

    Self-employed - proof of work experience

    From the lack of response I'm assuming this is an edge case not many have had to find a solution for. I've posted similar on a Facebook group specifically dealing with SINP and also didn't get any answers there. So for SINP EOI we have decided to just claim for the 8 years for now and look to getting a job offer to bolster points. For the EE application case would still appreciate some insight regarding whether we need to specify and prove employment which is further in the past than the previous 3 years? How far back do you actually need to go?

    Expired COPR,anyone?

    Looking for those with expired COPR's, how are u guys holding up.As for us its stressful.Its like we are starting all over again😩
  24. Hi all, Apologies in advance as this is a bit long winded Please bear with me if possible as I'd really appreciate some direction from anyone with knowledge or experience in the matter. I've been a computer programmer since 2006. My work experience covers 3 companies, one of them I owned myself. So technically, or at least I like to think, I have been working under NOC 2174 for the past 14 years. My current employment has been since 2011 November, previous to that I worked for myself (owned a CC). The business itself was an e-commerce website but I developed and maintained the site myself which was more than 50% of the actual work I did. I would like to claim the time I worked as software developer, albeit for a company I owned, as NOC 2174. With the above in mind I have concerns relating to following areas of our immigration process: SINP EOI I am currently wanting to put forward my SINP EOI, which awards points depending how many of the last 10 years you have worked under the NOC you are wanting to apply under. Has anyone managed to prove work experience as a business owner under a role they fulfilled under a different NOC (like 2174 or other professional services one may be able to render when running their own business?) IRCC Express Entry ITA application thereafter Assuming we are awarded the SINP PNP points the Express Entry pool application asks whether you have "3 years or more" foreign work experience in a single NOC (assuming this is the NOC you are applying under. Given my current employment spans the last 8 years does this mean I can simply remove the other work experience in our EE application? In other words, are they only interested in your last 3 years of employment? Or if I do need to have my entire employment history and since CIC website says you may not self declare your work duties for when you are self-employed ("self-declared main duties or affidavits are not acceptable proof of self-employed work experience") how would I prove my NOC 2174 duties for that period? Note: Because I ran an e-commerce website my customers won't be able to validate that I was a computer programmer since that role was only visible internally within the company (I worked on my own so don't have anyone who could validate it that way). If you've stuck with me up to here, thanks, I know it's a bit of a convoluted story My main concern is that I don't want to put anything on our SINP EOI or EE profile that I cannot prove and might cause my application to be rejected. My other concern is if I can't prove my work experience under the 2174 NOC for SINP I don't get full points for that area which might mean we wait substantially longer (or simply do not get chosen) for the SINP ITA. Thanks, Mike

    Continuing UNISA studies in Canada

    Doesn’t have to be done by WES but I do assume one needs some accredited authority to validate what you have studied to get the transfer credits. The Canadian university won’t do that step. One way or the other it’s going to be a long process unfortunately.

    Biometrics&Medicals

    Have anyone been in another country when asked to do biometrics and medicals? Is this possible? Our application is at the PTA Visa office - might be in another country in due course

    Continuing UNISA studies in Canada

    Thanks for the reply Jules. WES did verify my other degrees but not this one (in progress) and I would prefer not to go through the process again. Do you think that without the independent verification (i.e. WES) it would be a challenge to get the courses credited? And any other Canadian distance universities you would recommend? Thanks again.
