How to highlight familial ties in PR application

Post by Ash111 » Mon, 01 Mar 2021 9:47 am

Hi,

I have some 5-10 familial ties(like grandparent cousins, uncles, father's cousins) who are SC/SPR. How can i add this in my PR application. I am thinking to draw a family tree to show familial ties here. Can any suggest idea to show this?

I think you can just provide a list of your family members and how they are related to you. A family tree would be a lot of work, a list would probably suffice.

Ok, but where to upload, the ePR system has no provision to upload such additional info.

There is a reason why you can only upload certain documents. In the past, they were so inundated with garbage documents trying to suck up to ICA that they finally determined to do the whole thing online thereby eliminating the need for cover letters which most of the time are full of BS which is 95% pure hyperbole with little substance. When I was still a working HR Mgr I didn't bother to read cover letters either as they are of little use when it comes to factual data - more like wishful thinking on the applicants part. Plus I was notorious for picking up the phone and calling at least the last two employers regardless where they were working.

I do, however, think uploading a local family tree of sorts is a good idea because the one thing that ICA and the government in general are look out for is how much additional family baggage is the country going to eventually have to deal with if they give certain people PR and/or eventually SGC. By submitting a family tree, it will make it easier for them to see the baggage potentially being brought in because of earlier family member coming in and getting through ICA. These people will possibly just become a draw on the resources here and contribute nothing. This is often one of the reasons why ICA will request a complete CV of all the family members still in the home country. Should they determine they need it they will give an upload link specifically for that in the email request.
