Application cancelled by IRCC due to incomplete

#1

Hi all,

I had submitted my EE application after receiving ITA in January. However, due to an oversight from my end, I probably made mistake and my application was rejected as incomplete by IRCC. Below is what they said:

I think that I misunderstood what needs to be uploaded should a document be not in English. My German PCC as started on IRCC website is Certificate of Conduct (Führungszeugnis). Because it is in German, I got a notarized translation in English. I also notarized the copy of the original. While uploading the merged document, I combined the notarized copy of the original and the certified translation. I did not upload the scanned version of the original PCC. Could this be the issue? I would like to have some insights in this regards. For instance, what all need to be uploaded when a document is not in English/French? Is it original+certified translation+notarized copy of original?

Thanks!

I guess just the original and its translated version. I did not read anywhere about having to notarize them… Let’s get others’ views also here. But the above 2 are a must

I would say original + certified translation should be sufficient as @canadadreams mentioned. However since you have the notarized translation, there is no harm in uploading that as well with the previous two.

Have you used a Certified Translator from Canada or elsewhere ? If possible, could you recommend the business service you used.

@ashwinram09 since I lived in the US at the time of application, I got all my translations (certified as well as notarized) done by RushTranslate https://rushtranslate.com/. Everything was online. I liked their service, specifically because they were open to my suggestions of writing the correct German to English translation of certain words in the document. Their turnover is decent (~48hrs) and also provide premium turnover (~24hrs). Hope this helps.

@canada_back thank you so much for the information.
I would appreciate your help on another matter related to German PCC. My wife had her middle name abbreviated (Ex: Ragu -> Raghunathan), just wondering if similar thing happened in your case and if i should get it corrected.

I’m glad I could help @ashwinram09. Unfortunately I didn’t face the issue you mentioned as I don’t have a middle name. Maybe others in the forum can guide you. @mrandmrs?

Sorry, no idea.

Hello guys:

My application has been rejected for being incomplete. It says that I did not include Copy of Passport/Travel Documents.

  1. Is there any way I can verify what documents were uploaded?
  2. If I had uploaded incorrect docs, do I have to re-apply? Or is there anyway to contact IRCC and send them correct documents?
  3. Any other advise at this point?

Thanks,
J

U can try this

#12

Regarding questions 2 & 3, I think u r back in the pool due to rejection, which means u will be sent ita in the next draw if ur score is high enough. Then u have to upload all docs and submit again.

#13

The rejection letter had the following note. It appears that I am no longer in the pool. I may have to re-apply. That is why I was wondering if one could contact IRCC/helplines and figure out without having the need to re-apply.

Anybody with similar experience?

#14

Alright, so I think I am going to apply again. Since I got rejected for a silly document error, most of my stuff is ready.

Got the ITA on 20th March. I got latest PoF docs form my bank yesterday.

My medicals, PCC (USA) and Verification of Employment was done in November. Will they be accepted on my new application?

#15

I think they should all be still valid. You might want to check how the medical report would be sent for the new Express Entry AoR though.

#16

(see link below) Looks like the medicals are tied to your passport #. It appears as though I am able to use the same Medical Report (without the need to contact Doctor again).

Thoughts?

#17

Hey, Did this happen by error or did you submit the wrong document?
I am wondering if we have to submit all copies of passport including new and expired, need suggestions @mrandmrs @canadadreams

#18

You should submit the expired ones also if u have used them for travel within 10 years… Or else it won’t matter. U can just submit the new ones.

#19

We submitted copy of only our new passports. Here is what it says during post-ITA document submission:

You must submit a legible copy of your valid travel document which you will use to travel.

If you have a passport, you must provide a copy of:
the page that shows your birth date and country of origin, and any pages with stamps, visas or markings.

If you do not have a passport and must use another travel document, it must be issued by a government and include your:
name,
date of birth,
document number,
citizenship or residency status,
photo, and
expiry date (if applicable).
