Hello,

Maybe this question might have been asked before. But I just ended up in a peculiar
situation and thought would raise the question here.

I am applying for PR and plan to send in my papers next week. I have all the
requirements ready but for one little glitch that hit me a week ago.

I was working for a company and my contract expired on 21st August. And now I am
without work. If I file in my papers now, stating 21st August as the last date I was
employed, would it adversly affect my application?

The question thus can be reframed as "If I have 2 years of industry experience but am
currently unemployed, the unemployment starting a week ago, should I file my papers?
Or should I wait for a new job and then file my papers?"

Also another question is, "does it matter if my papers (police clearance, etc) are
dated a few months prior to the PR application filing date?

What I am thinking is, if it takes some time to find a new job, would I have to again
collect all the requirements with a "fresh" enough date?

I will hope that I get some responses

You asked a few questions:

    >
    >
application?

If you have a history of losing your job, this may be a negative factor. =
If this is the first job loss, it is not likely to negatively affect.

    >
experience but am currently unemployed, the unemployment starting a week = ago,
should I file my papers? Or should I wait for a new job and then = file my papers?"
    >

The process will take quite some time. It is very likely you will be = working by the
time any interview comes. Therefore do not delay. =20

    >
clearance, etc) are dated a few months prior to the PR application = filing date?=20

Another reason to file now. Old certificates will be useless and you = will be asked
to get new ones.

Don't wait. Look for a new job while your papers are underway. You can = update the
visa post later.
