Immigration via EXPRESS ENTRY

As of January 1, 2015, the Canadian Immigration Service has implemented a program called Express Entry in the First Come, First Served method, which is the existing federal government immigration program application method, so that among those with immigration qualifications, the Immigration Office prefers those with high CRS scores. It was implemented based on the purpose of increasing the chances of obtaining permanent residency.

The Express Entry system is not a new immigration program, but a new selection method applied to existing federal immigration programs. Therefore, the qualifications of the existing federal immigration programs, namely Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trade Program and Canadian Experience Class, remain intact, but must be selected after registering in the Express Entry system prior to applying for permanent residency.

The process step is to first register for the Express Entry Pool, receive an Invitation Letter from the Selection held 15-25 times a year, and then apply for a federal immigration program such as FSW, FSTP, CEC or PNP (if approved by the state for Express Entry). You can apply for permanent residency at , and you can receive a permanent residency within a maximum of 6 months.

Even if you meet the conditions for permanent residency, it is burdensome to have to receive an invitation letter through the Express Entry system, but it is undoubtedly very groundbreaking news that you can receive a permanent residency in six months.

In Express Entry, when registering for a pool, complex personal information such as an individual's academic background, career, age, and language ability is digitized and displayed as a score. The passable score is announced every time an announcement is made, and if you have a score higher than that score, you can apply for permanent residency.
