I am facing some problem, from 2004 till 2008 i've worked in Dubai with a contracting company of Dubai Civil Aviation after that i came back to Pakistan due to some reasons. My mistake is that i didn't request for my experience letter from the company, now i need that experience certificate in order to proceed with ACS. I've tried to contact Company via Call and Email address but they are not responding even all of my friends left the company and i don't know where are they right now because i don't have any contact. Right now i only have expired job card and visa paper on my passport. What is the best i should do and get/generate experience letter. Can anyone help me out in this regard.

Get statutory declaration from your manager/supervisor if possible...have all the Payslips, Tax filings ready to show employment proof..that would be sufficient

I think you didn't get my point let me clarify again;

I worked in Dubai for more than 4 years, which is tax free zone and don't know where the colleagues are, as there is not much interaction after leaving the company. Is there any way that i can produce evidence or any document to claim experience with ACS and apply for Immigration process.

There is one more question suppose if i track down any of my colleague but later i found out he also left dubai for good and resides to any other country. Now what is the best i can do. Do i still need to get Statuary document, if yes what is the process to do so because considering this that I am in my Home country and my colleague has also left the place where we used to work together and resides to any other 3rd country

You can request your colleague to provide the statuatory declaration though he is not residing in the same country. In addition to the statuatory declaration of your colleague you have to provide one of the experience or payslips or service letter that Establishes your duration of the work.

Mate,

The point is one requires as many documentation as possible from all the companies that they have worked for. So, if it is not possible to get certain documents then ask yourself what is the next best thing?

Reference letters from colleagues, managers, etc. Any third party related documents like taxation papers (if applicable), provident fund, work permits which proves your employment legitimacy.

Thanx buddy for your detailed answer, as per your answer i've to prove my employment than i have Visa paper on my passport including Job card, do let me know that can i make any document on the basis of both of these things because Job card is created by some Govt institution as we were contracting company on visa of Govt institution and Visa paper is also considered as an official document. What do you say

Visa paper just proves that I was recruited by a company in 2010.

Does it show that I actually worked there from Jan 2010 to Dec 2016?

Does it show that I was working on Linux or Windows?

Does it include at least 5 lines about the work details?

Immigration wants to know the things in bold.

OK now i got your point, you are right a visa paper will not share these kind of details, it only shows that visa is issue on behalf of which company but doesn't have any information what i had done in my job.

It means i've to proceed without that information.

I think you will only miss 1 year of experience because assessment is done on the last 10 years of work experience.

I see lot of risk in claiming this employment.
But, its your call.

Any ways,

Given your scenario, only thing you can provide is visa on passport and copy of your residence card( is your company name, your position written?)

Self declaration in the place where you currently stay( in your case ,your home country)


Mention the circumstances why you can not provide more details regarding this eployment, your position, start date and end date, RnR , full time or part time, salary etc in your SD.

Other than that, If you saved any official e-mails you transmitted during that employment, your travel stamps in passport to UAE, any document that related to dubai employment.

Lastly, the acceptance of this employment will be at sole discretion of CO who review your case.

Good luck

Some very valid points here..


If all else fails provide a self declaration. You also need to decide if you don't claim points for this employment provided you are comfortably placed.


Please note compiling documentation & building up your case is your job. However, it is always at the discretion of the case officer. CO has to get convinced by your documentation.

Thanks mate for your quick and detailed response, the reason of asking all this is currently if don't claim this particular 4 yr and 10 mon experience then my consolidated experience will be 8 yr 1 mon and from that 2 yr will be minus as per policy to ACS so it becomes 6yr and 1 mon but if i claim this particular 4 yr then i will get 8 yr of experience which certainly affects my points :) i think you got my point

Now as you are saying that is totally with me to proceed with it or not, i'll take decision on the basis of my IELTS point, i've already booked the coming date. Let's see what will happen with passage of time

In that case, I guess claim the points. Do your best beforehand while compiling documentation. Final discretion is of the CO. So let it be!
I see no harm in claiming wherein your work experience is valid & genuine. Go fight for it!
