  1. Dear Mr.Holthe
    My express entry has been rejected, due to lack of original copy for police certificate.
    Do I have to retake medical exam? or I can use the one that I took,It was taken two month ago.
    Furthermore My company will not give me the refrence letter with detailed job description, the letter only contains the position, and the start date, what should I do?
    Thanks in advance

    • Sepideh,

      Medicals are valid for 1 year, so you can resubmit the same medical. In terms of the reference letter, this is a tough one. I wrote a blog on the topic a while back: I also did a short Podcast on the topic however, please understand that the first link is the proper link for the content of the reference letters under Express Entry and this link contains some suggestions for what to do if you can’t get the proper reference letter:
