Hey everyone! 👋
As you remember, my girlfriend and I started the process of immigration to Canada, and I promised to share all our news and here I am!
Earlier, I already wrote that we decided to contact the migration company to facilitate the process. The consultant told us about the programs available to us. And we were even a little confused by how many options were given …
But in the end, we chose the Express Entry system, and now I will tell you why…
Express Entry Canada, what is it?
Beginning in January 2015, Canada’s immigration applications can be submitted through the new Express Entry system. Applicants are selected and evaluated using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The selection of candidates takes place in rounds, on average twice a month. In each round of invitations, the best candidates receive an invitation to process immigration documents, from 700 to 3800 people per round. The minimum score varies depending on the distribution of the overall marks at the time of selection.
In addition to applying for immigration, your file is registered in the national labor force of the so-called. Job Bank, where you can find a Canadian employer and get an invitation to work that gives you an additional 50 to 200 points and practically guarantees you an invitation to immigrate to Canada. It is worth noting that the availability of a Job Offer from a Canadian employer is NOT MANDATORY for successful immigration to Canada.
Also, additional accrual of points for the presence of a nomination for the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP): 600 points. It is worth noting the following, in order to apply for a Provincial Nomination, a candidate must first be submitted to the Express Entry system.
Express Entry is not a new program, it is a new method of applying for independent immigration to Canada and obtaining permanent resident status under the existing Canadian immigration programs.
The best choice to get permanent residency in Canada
While we were choosing the program, we highlighted several advantages of Express Entry:
- Huge list of Federal Skilled Workers;
- Unlimited quotas for specific specialties;
- No annual quotas on the number of accepted immigration applications during the year;
- Short terms of consideration of initial immigration applications:
- The ability to change your data during the primary and secondary periods of consideration of documents;
- Registration in the national database of vacancies Job Bank of Canada;
- Payment of starting fees only in case of preliminary selection of the candidate;
- Payment of the second fees only in case of a final positive decision of the Consulate.
We have highlighted these points as the most important to us.
Ooooooh, it’s such an emotional process
In general, I am still in shock that we decided to take such a step – to change our lives. I am overwhelmed with emotions, and I am nervous and delighted at the same time.
I want to thank you for your support and your interest in our route to Canada.
Oh yes, I almost forgot! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! May the next year be more successful, haha!
