Hello,

My file was transferred from Buffalo to LA in May.
They sent me a letter in late August and gave me the date and time of my
interview (in November).
(I submitted my application in November 2001. I was notified of their
decision to transfer my file to LA in December 2002.)

By the way, my CAIPS shows that the reason why they decided to interview me
was "IT APPEARS ALL OF SUBJ S EDU AND EXP OBTAINED ABROAD, RECOMMEND
INTERVIEW TO ASSESS SKILLS AND SUITABILITY."
It puzzles me because most people who apply for a permanent resident visa
must have got their qualifications and work experiences abroad (outside
Canada).
If this is the reason for requesting an interview, they will have to call up
most of the applicants for an interview, won't they?
I sent papers to clearly validate my claims about education and job
qualifications and work experiences.
So, I wonder what they are going to ask me in the interview.
Does anyone have any ideas?

nothing yet.... still waiting. So much for "to expedite the process"
(maybe they ment to expedite the process of the rest of people lucky
enough not to have their files transferred ... ohhhh well some more
patience I guess.

Where are you?
Where did you get your education, experience and how long?
Is your education related with your job?
What educational credentials and proof of experience did you provide?
Does your job title clearly match the occupation in the NOC list?
What is your self-assessment score?
Is LA your selected interview city?

Hello compiler,

Thank you for taking interest in my post.

    > Where are you?
I am Japanese, but now I live in Australia as a naturalized Australian
citizen.

    > Where did you get your education, experience and how long?
I graduated a Japanese university. I have been working as a translator for
the past eight years.

    > Is your education related with your job?
I obtained a bachelor of arts degree in English, so I would say my
university education is directly rlated to my career.

    > What educational credentials and proof of experience did you provide?
I sent a certificate of graduation and transcript from my univeristy, a
bunch of letters of receommendations from my clients, letters from my former
employers, documents showing I am the sole director of an incorporated
translation company in Australia, tax assessment letters from the Australian
government showing the annual income and tax for myself and my company for
the past two years, and a certificate of accreditation from the Australian
translation/interpretation industry body stating that I am recognized as a
professional translator by the body.

    > Does your job title clearly match the occupation in the NOC list?
I think I saw 'translator' in the NOC list.

    > What is your self-assessment score?
Under the old system, I think I scored 73 or 75. Under the new system, my
score is only 67. (This is another strange part. I had received my
interview call-up letter a few weeks before the pass mark was lowered to 67.
I did not expect to be called up for an interview because I was below the
pass mark and the Federal Court had ordered CIC not to reject any
application filed under the old law. This means that they the LA consulate
was willing to issue me a visa even though my scroe was below the pass mark
at the time, or they knew the pass mark would be lowered in a few weeks'
time.)

    > Is LA your selected interview city?
No. I thought I would get the visa without an interview.

If you could give me any ideas what sort of question they might be
interested in asking, it would be really appreciated.

Thank you for reading this rather long e-mail.

Hmm

You are the sole director of an incorporated translation company in
Australia. A bunch of letters of recommendations from your clients,
letters from my former employers. Comparing with so-and-so obtaining
ONE letter of reference from his employer showing the period of
employment, position, responsibilities, salary, signature of the
employer, which one could be more comfortable for the concern over the
accuracy or authenticity?

The use of interviews in the OP 6 states, "any concerns officers have
regarding the accuracy or authenticity of information or documentation
should be communicated to the applicant, whether these concerns are
raised by site visits, telephone checks or some other means…. Officers
may conduct interview with applicants to:

. ensure that information submitted on the form is truthful and
complete;
. detect and deter fraudulent information and documents;
. clarify specific information."

You are selected to visit the United States probably due to some
unclear info. You may need to prepare 1) clearly describe your work
history (match the translators main duties?); 2) why do you want to
immigrant to Canada; and 3) How do you pursue your career in Canada?

If you can clearly give the info that the officer concerns, why can't
s/he approve your case? Be relax and good luck!

PS. Don't forget to visit the Disneyland Located in Anaheim, about 30
miles from Los Angeles. That is the best place to say "whew!"

Hello compile,

Thank you very much for your input.
I really appreciate it.

I guess I have nothing to worry about since I reported everything
truthfully.

Thanks again for your help!
