    This is wais Mohammad Arab from Kabul Afghanistan and I work with Canadian Contribution Training Mission – Afghanistan,
    I have worked with Canadian in Kandahar for six months during the spring and summer of 2007. Then on started working with Canadian in Kabul since March 2009 till present time
    and have applied for interpreters immigration process on May 6/ 2010 and I got rejected .the reason that I got rejected was ,I haven’t completed 12 months working with Canadians in Kandahar that is why I got rejected. On 21 Aug 2001 I have received a threat letter from insurgents and quickly I reported to the Canadian Contribution Training Mission – Afghanistan where I work, after a few days on the evening of September 10 I have received threating of phone call from the insurgents. All of the above information has been reported to the J2 Intelligence Cell for Canadian Contingent Training Mission – Afghanistan (CCTM-A). after on I had interview with Canadian field security group twice about what happen to me, this serious and tough situation obligated me to apply for special Immigration Visa to Canada for Afghan Interpreters and I applied for second time on September 11/2011 and I got rejected for second time either, the reason that I got rejected was, they told me the risk that you faced is not in Kandahar. Risk is risk anywhere your work but I was working with Canadian when I received a threat letter and threat of phone call. The field security group told me we would like to send all these information to Islamabad where the immigration office is, I went to the Canadian embassy to find someone and talk about my problem but I couldn’t find someone to talk, the Embassy of Canada in Kabul unfortunately does not provide Canadian visa services they offer me, islamabad-im-enquiry@international.gc.ca I sent email to CIC as well they told me you are not eligible because you haven’t work for a year , I went everywhere I could but get nothing , hope I email the right source , Believe me Kabul is too dangerous than other provinces from different aspects I don’t want to go further I can only say I am living in very tough situation , my wife and my son they are living with my father in law in the north part of Afghanistan and my parents are living in other part of Afghanistan and I am living in different restaurant and close relative every day and taking different road when I am coming to my work , I don’t know for how long I have to keep go like this , it really hurt me every minute , I got tired of my life I am prisoner in my own home anything can happen any time I don’t know what should I do I lost my way, even I have great job with good pay but I can’t enjoy from my life I am a person with no future I am worried about my wife and my son , sometimes I think I should kill myself it is better than that the insurgents behead me some day, if I do this what will happen to my family my responsibility through my family ,to be honest with you it is killing me every moment . I have my letter of confirmation about threat from the Canadians and my all documents are available with me and also the whole Canadian team that I work with them they know what happened to me , if you want further information I will send you their email address . Sorry to take your time to read my email. Please allow me to immigrate to Canada and start new and happy life with my family. IOM has my whole information I mean my package, file. My file number is 149 and I have sent three email to the above email address I didn’t get any respond back .
    Thanks.

    My name is ……………… and I used to work with the Western Military as a translator. I have also worked with ISAF as a freelance print journalist in south. Having worked with the western forces and International Organizations like ISAF, I now have a high profile and ongoing threats in Afghanistan.
    I am curious to know if Canada can issue visa to those who worked with other International forces but not with the Canadian forces. If yes, how can I submit a case with the Canada Embassy?
