RAIC after travelling overseas

#1 Post by Noo » Thu Jan 04, 2018 11:45 pm

I haven't held a RAIC for years but will need one again for a new job. I've vacationed overseas in one country for more than 90 days total in the past 5 years. I've also flown for a Canadian operator overseas for more than 90 days total in one country in the past 5 years. Should I be proactive and start getting police checks from these countries? I imagine it will take some time to get them. Or should I wait and see if they will request them or not? Anyone been in this situation recently? Is there any other supporting documents they may ask for? I'm nervous about getting denied due to my travel and overseas work.

It just took me 9 months to renew mine cause I was more than 3 months abroad during the last 5 years.
But in your case I don't think you can do anything before beiing hired. Once hired you apply and ask for the security clearance. During the mean time you'll be provided with a temporary RAIC which will let you work during 6 months I believe. After the 6 months it could be extended if the permanent one isn't ready.

Thanks frog. Did you have to obtain any police checks from the countries you visited or do they do all the checking themselves? Was there any other documentation they asked for to support your overseas travel?

They do all the checking by themselves.

When you fill the form, they ask you at what adress you were staying, if it was for the job, which employers...etc

They asked me for police record checks from my home country for the 5 year period before my RAIC application. I had to provide them and had to have them certified translated into English or French at my expense. Same with employment contracts etc. Was a very expensive application.
