Default Advice before sending application

Hi fellow brits.My wife child and myself are hoping to live in bc.i am an industrial electrician.we sent our package away last october having calculated that we had plenty of points to spare.my wife worked in bc for 10 years and her sister
has lived their 30 years.We sent in pay slips and proof of her sisters citizenship.our application fee was cashed after 2 weeks and we waited 9 months for our 1st reply.we were astonished to be refused because my wife never submitted tax returns and her sisters maiden name was different.we can not appeal and have lost our fee.we strongly advise you submit more info than you can get your hands on or maybe use a rep.
We have got the info required now but are having second thoughts after our cast iron case was refused!
I am a qualified elect but they did not accept my city and guilds because proof of attending college was not supplied.
Good luck
bye for now
Derek

Sorry to hear this, but unfortunately CIC have very specific requirements and you do have to meet them. Did you download the application guide and operating manual to see exactly what was required?

What exactly did you fail on, not enough points? You say you had 'plenty to spare' so what did you score?

If you were relying on the points for your Wife living in BC and also having a Sister over there - the onus is on you to prove these things.

You needed to show how the two ladies were related - with birth certificates showing same parents and if the sister is married now - a copy of her marriage certificate showing her old maiden name.

You also needed to show that your Wife DID live in BC - proof from tax returns or visa documentation showing her entering and leaving etc.

If you need any help before you submit again - this is the place to ask!

Good luck

I lost points in work experience because i only submitted proof of my last job.instead of 21 points i got 17 even although i listed every job in the last 30 years.i lost points because i didnt send proof of college and apprenticeship even though i sent my trade cert from college,i got 15 points instead of 20.i now have all the documents including my wifes bc tax returns.we really are scared to apply again in case we fail.its a heart breaker not to mention losing another 1250 dollars.i do my language test again next week we will decide after that.
cheers for now

1. You don't have to the IELTS again if you have done it in the past 2 years it is still valid. Just send a copy with the application and note that the original was submitted to CIO Sydney and retained.

I think you can apply again on your own, but you just need to read the instructions *much* more carefully. It does say that you must send in employment proof for the past 10 years, so make sure you do that, and also all educational certs.

If you're worried about it, then why not just hire a consultant to do a 'form checking' service? Most will do that for approx £500, although they don't check all your supporting documents, but at least you can be sure you've included all the information needed on the forums if you can't afford the full service.
