Express Entry process and requirements

The new Express Entry system Canada has made it easier for the foreign aspirants of any occupation to submit their application (Expression of Interest), getting shortlisted in the highly skilled occupations. This new system has placed no cap on the number of applications and thus the candidates can submit their EOI without the uncertainty of the pool being filled up before their application is being processed.

CIC has introduced this new system that has made the processing of the visa faster, based on a few criteria under the economic immigration programs, that are, federal skilled worker program, the federal skilled trades program or the Canadian Experience Class. Although, this system is not to be confused with the regular citizenship, Permanent Residency and immigration process.

For applying successfully under the Express Entry Program 2015, an applicant needs to follow the following process steps:

online Express Entry profile

  • First of all, the candidates will have to complete an online Express Entry profile, requiring them to provide all the necessary information, including, education, work experience, personal life, financial resources and other details that would be supporting them once they are being offered a PR visa for Canada.

Note: Application of the candidate can be disqualified for a number of years in case they provide any wrong information.

  • The one who satisfactorily meets all the criteria in one of the three economic immigration plans will be acknowledged in the Express Entry Program.
  • The profile of the applicant will then be accessed against others (who are already in the pool) and those with the highest rank in terms of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) will be chosen.

Note: Preference will be given to the one who fulfill the provision of the employers in Canadian states and territories.

  • Those who do not possess any job offer will have to register themselves under the Canada’s Job Bank, wherein they will be connected to the prospective employers.

Invitation to Apply (ITA)

  • Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) offers an Invitation to Apply to the determined applicants, allowing to apply for the permanent residency visa within 60 days. They will have to meet the visa requirements that have been set out in the economic immigration program for which they are eligible.

Note: The processing time will be benefitting the candidates, taking a time of 6 months of even less to process the PR visa application.

  • Candidates with a valid job offer or suitable nomination from Canadian provinces or territories will be given priority.

Note: Applicants who do not receive ITA from Citizenship and Immigration Canada within 12 months will have to re-submit their application and will again have to complete the eligibility criteria as decided.
