Need help with below points while attaching documents after visa fee payment.
1) Update Us button is enabled but when I am trying to use it for updating passport details.I m just trying to see the look and feel ( as I will be renewing my kid's passport soon due to change in appearance and will be using this option)
there is a dropdown list to choose the reason for renewal ..but it does not have a change in appearance reason.
It has...
Lost
Stolen
Cancelled
Damaged
Expired
Incorrectly Recorded

Please suggest which reason should I select??
How will I be able to justify the renewel??

2) I have a stat decl for variations in the name of my wife's father declared by my wife...but I am unable to find any pertinent options to load it under???
Gen stat decl of this type would go under which category??

3) Similarly, have proof of functional English for Spouse but not sure where to load it...maybe under language ability --> Others --> Specify there as I can not find the exact category for this type of evidence.

4) I have Form 16 for all durations along with bank statements, salary slips, emp ref letter on letterhead, offer letters..hike letter, rel letter, exp letter...is it enough??
I do have ITRs( not acknowledgement but the ITR form which is filed electronically)
I have for most duration except 2 years in my entire 10 years skilled experience??
Shall I not upload or upload whatever I have as ITR...I am planning to avoid uploading ITR..as its missing for 2 years duration??

Your suggestions will go a long way in helping me at this juncture.
Thanks a lot.
1. Just file a form 1022 with new passport details
2.no need to upload at this stage. Upload only if asked specifically by the CO
3. There is a specific section for functional English evidence. Look for it and upload there
4. ITR forms just filled by you have no value or sanctity. No sense in uploading them
But I fail to understand why you would not have an acknowledgement if you have actually filed a return
The evidence you have should be sufficient

Cheers
Thanks buddy.
1.So I should not use update us rather fill 1022 form and attach under relevent section.
4. I think I have acknowledgement as well for 4 years ...as in between i had filed manually and no longer i have receipts for that manual filing....so i wont upload ITRs..as form 16 is there for my entire duration.
Hope CO is satisfied with all I will provid!!
Thanks.

2. Shall I submit the form 16 for those years also when I worked whole year outside? My salary is 0 in those form 16. But I'll submit the proof of tax filing in other countries.
3. As I'm often reading in the posts, Do I also need to submit all my promotion letters?
4. Do I also need to submit my yearly increament letter?
5. My PCC and tax document from Belgium is not in English. Is it a problem?
6. Do I need to submit my salary slips for all the years of service (approx 11 years)?
7. Do I need to get salary slips and degrees copy certified, like we do for ACS? Or color scan is fine?
8. My employer doesn't give employee reference letter, therefore I got a statutory declaration from my manager for ACS in July. Is it fine to use the same declaration for Visa application? It was signed in July.

Sorry for long list but I want to do strong documentation and make it ready it in advance.
Thanks
1. It should be ok because traces was implemented in 2011 if I am not wrong so before that period we will be having company issued form 16.
I do not see any issue here!!
For ITRs I am also in same boat and decided to go with only form 16 for tax document evidence.
2.you combine both showing zero as well as overseas tax for that duration.
3. If you have why not.
4.Same as above
5. You will have to get those translated in english.
6. if have better..assuming you have bank statements showing salary credit for that duration you do not have pay slips.
Even 1 per quarter or half yearly should be enough.
7.color scan is fine
8. Use the same..should not be an issues...even for me also my employer ref letters are dated june even May month this year.
Maybe on this point more experienced guys can add??

1. I have salary slips for every month for all the 10+ years. I'll add them. Till 2013, I used to get Indian salary slip and onsite salary slip separately although Indian salary also credited in my onsite account after conversion with a separate line in my bank statements. After 2015, onsite salary slip shows the total salary and also it's a single credit in my bank statement.
How can I explain this to them? or I keep it simple and only show my onsite salary slips.

2. Do I need to provide all my bank statements? or only the one with salary credit?

3. For Translation: Is there any format? Is it fine to provide only the summary? I think, it will be difficult to give whole translation line by line. Does it need to be by an authorized translator? or can I do it myself and sign by taking full responsibility of it's authentication?

Thanks once again!

1. Keep it simple .. Only on-site salary slip is sufficient
2. Only the bank account in which the salary is credited
3. Don’t skimp on money. Get it translated by a NAATI approved translator

Final decision is yours

Cheers

Thanks for the reply, could you please also suggest based on your experience what can I do for the question I asked earlier:

8. My employer doesn't give employee reference letter, therefore I got a statutory declaration from my manager for ACS in July. Is it fine to use the same declaration for Visa application? It was signed in July.

Hi Newbienz,

I had a query, would appreciate your response.

I lodged my Visa in October 2017.
I have claimed about 2 years of experience in my job with company Xyz until March 31, 2017.
I got my Vetasses assessment done in April 2017.
Along with my Visa Application, I have submitted the R&R, Payslips, Form 16, Form 26, Bank Statements, Company Incorporation certificate for the same.

The company has shut operations April 1, 2017 onwards. They have shut down the website too. Only 1 employee remains (The Finance VP, who issued me my R&R letter and also she is the referee for my application).

My concern is, since the website isn't up and running, should I declare this in advance to my CO. Do you think not disclosing this could lead to issues?
OR
Do you think disclosing all this would unnecessarily complicate matters and delay my Visa processing?

I am fretting since I read they issued NJL to someone in the forum due to his company website not being found, and I really wish to avoid such a situation in my case.

Any help or suggestion on this matter would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Aafreen

PS: As supporting evidence for employment, I have shared the R&R letter, Payslips, Form 16, Form 26AS, Joining, Promotion & Relieving letter as well as Bank statements where salary was being credited.

You have not read my thread and hence this question

You have to use the same statutory declaration.
Itís immaterial when I was signed

Cheers
