Canada Immigration Express Entry
Immigration to Canada is widely viewed one of the best options in the world for people looking for a better quality of life. It has many opportunities for career development as well as personal enhancement. It is the best place to settle in for those who are looking for a better quality of life for themselves and their families. Moreover, the Canada immigration Process is more open, flexible and user friendly when compared to the immigration process of other developed countries such as USA and UK. Therefore it’s easier to qualify. Canada also provides a robust healthcare, public education and social welfare system which is one of the best in the world and at a very low cost.
One of the most popular and often used pathways for immigration to Canada is the Canada Express Entry program. Below are outlined 10 easy steps in which you can successfully apply for a Canada PR visa through Express Entry
Steps for applying for Canada PR through Express Entry
The steps to obtaining a Permanent Residence through the Canada Express Entry pool are as follows
Step 1: Complete your Language ability Tests
One of the primary requirements for Express Entry is proof of language ability. You will need to take the IELTS for proving your ability to communicate effectively in the English language. You can also give a relevant French language test such as Test de evaluation de Francians (TEF) to further improve your ranking.
Step 2: Create a profile for Express Entry
You will need to create an Express Entry Profile for yourself online on the IRCC website in order to initiate the process for your Express Entry
Step 3: Complete your ECA
If your education was completed outside of Canada then it is advisable to complete an Education credentials assessment. Completing an ECA can provide an additional 150 points to your Comprehensive Ranking Score.
Step 4: Apply for Provincial Nomination (optional)
You can also opt to apply for one of the various provincial nomination programs that are managed by the different provinces within Canada. If successfully selected for a provincial nomination, you can get an additional 600 points on your score.
Step 5: Get an invitation to apply.
Once your application is approved and scores the threshold CRS score in the Express Entry draw, you will receive an Invitation to Apply. Once you receive an ITA you will need to submit a completed application within the next 90 days.
Step 6: Complete medical and criminal background checks
You will need to complete a health checkup with a Doctor from a qualified panel of Doctors approved by Canadian immigration authority and submit the same to the IRCC. Additionally, you will need to obtain a Police Clearance Certificate from each city you have resided in for more than six months on a continuous basis in the past.
Step 7: Application is reviewed by Canadian immigration officer
During this step, you will not have any active part, but your application will be reviewed by an immigration officer. You should be ready, however, to furnish any additional requirements if requested, during this stage.
Step 8: You will receive confirmation of PR status
During this step, you will get confirmation of your permanent resident status. You can get your application processed faster under certain categories. For example. If you apply under the Canadian Experience Class your application will be processed as early as 3 to 4 months. You will receive a COPR (Confirmation of Permanent Residence) card at this step.
Step 9: Apply for your PR card.
Congratulations! This is the last step for your Canada immigration process and you are now qualified to travel to Canada. You will need to apply for your PR card and can use it to travel in and out of Canada as you please.
