Canada Immigration Q&A: Acknowledgement Of Receipt & Police Clearance Issues

Acknowledgement of Receipt from Visa Office

Question: I have submitted my application for immigration, and I’m currently waiting for an Acknowledgment of Receipt (AOR) from the visa office. Is it sent via snail mail or by email? I have recently moved to a new address.

Answer: Different visa offices employ different means of sending out Acknowledgment of Receipt to applicants whose application for immigration has been accepted for review.

You can do two things here: retain an immigration lawyer so that all communications will be sent to him and can be then forwarded to you, or inform the visa office of any change you make in your address/email address.


Police Clearance For Immigration Applications

Question: Have there been instances when immigration applications were accepted even if there was no police clearance included? What can I do if I cannot obtain this document?

Answer: A police clearance is one of the primary requirements when applying for immigration, so it’s highly advisable that you try your very best to obtain this document.

However, if that’s not possible, you can submit a declaration explaining your reason for not being able to obtain the police clearance.

The visa officer will review your explanation, BUT it is up to the officer whether to accept or reject your application based on your submitted declaration.
