Yes that is possible since the notary is witnessing his declaration.

Yes he can do that and send you the original. Make sure it has the seal SWORN TO BEFORE ME. Along with notary's seal.

This is not a reference letter per se. Reference letter is issued by a company on their letter head detailing your roles and responsibilities. As in your case , you take the route of statutory declaration if you are unable to get it. And also it is preferred to get it from your supervisor level or above.

Thanks for the reply.
No, it would be tough to get from my supervisor as he is no more in that organisation, hence i am taking from my collegue who worked with me, we both were in same level and he is still in that organisation. Will this be an problem? Eventhrough my Supervisor is not in the same organisation now, can i still take his signature?

Hi all,

I worked in a company for 3 years. Then resigned and took a break for 5 months.
Again, joined the same company.

While submitting reference letters for ACS, I understand that I should get two separate letters though its from same company. But I would like to know the person giving me the reference letters have to be different or can be same.

pls help me out.

Thanks

Hi James,

I am also in the same situation like you. Though I am in the same team both the times and my manager is also the same guy. Should I get two reference letters from the HR? or will one reference letter is enough mentioning the duration of work clearly?

Thanks
