  1. Sir, I have a couple of questions.
    1. which documents are necessary apart from experience letter, appointment letter and reliving letter? ( Bank statement or salary slips )
    2. If salary slips are required than how many?
    3. What if I have 2 different employers. Do I need salary slips from both?
    4. What if I'm paid in cash?

  2. Hi sir. Thanks a lot for this video. Just a querry: is this verification done randomly, or is it always done in all cases?

  12. Hi Alex,
    The company I used to work A has been sold to a company B. Upon my request Company A gave me a reference letter on their letter head. Since A has been sold to B, contact details of the company A such as website, phone numbers, email ids don’t work anymore.
    But I have tax forms, pay checks, bank statements while being on A’s payroll.
    So if I submit this reference letter, what are the chances that it would pass the employment verification check ?
    Could I submit any additional letter to support my case ?
    Thanks in advance.

  15. Hello there respected Consultant, what format is needed for internship letter? Does it have to be in the same format as a proper work exp letter or the duties should not be in detail?

  16. this US company outsourced in the Philippines back in 2016 to a Local PH company. The local PH company provides manpower and I was hired to work for and serve as a Manager for this US company. This year the US company decided to end their business with the PH company to start their own local subsidiary and operate the locally. In line with that, they also decided to acquire and absorb all the existing employees to continue their employment. It involved some contracts and fees were settled to get the employees. The US Company said that the employees can keep their tenure and they will retain the number of years they gained from the time that they joined the company who hired us to work for them.

    My question is, Should I still get an employment certificate from the Local PH company who hired me to serve this Us company or can I just ask for an employment certificate from this US company (which is now my actual company) and provide the details I mentioned above?

  24. Hello sir, i am currently working in company from last 2 years and i worked for 4 year for my former company. Is visa officer verify my both reference letter or current company refrence??

  25. Hello Sir, I am working in a government organization for 25 years. I have lot of paper evidence for the job. I don't want my authority to know about my PNP application because it may jeopardize my job. I am planning to get the job reference letter from my junior officers with whom I worked and who know about my job responsibility. If I am invited, along with my submitted papers can I send a request letter to SINP officials and later to IRCC officials to not contact my HR for verification. If they even contact my HR they should keep the purpose of their investigation secret from my HR and referees who gave me job experience letters. For job investigation the SINP and IRCC officials can visit my office any time they want.
