Express Entry (EE) is an online immigration application system. Candidates categorized as skilled immigrants are required to submit a profile. Candidates with the highest rankings are eventually invited to apply for permanent residency based on a ranking system.
The Express Entry (EE) process facilitates applications under the following:
- Federal Skilled Worker – FSW
- Federal Skilled Trades – FST
- Canadian Experience Class – CEC
In addition, Express Entry also facilitates immigration via Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). All territories across Canada will have access to review your profile, increasing the chances of permanent residency.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Express Entry involves two steps:
- Complete an online Express Entry profile, be placed in pool of candidates
- Receive invitation to apply for permanent residence from IRCC.
Candidates in the pool are ranked using a point-based system named Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS).
Getting into Express Entry doesn’t guarantee invitation to apply, since applicants have to meet all eligible and admissibility requirements. Upon entering the pool, candidates are assigned a CRS score based on factors including education, work experience, language ability, and other criteria. Highest-ranking candidates are regularly selected from draw and invited to apply for permanent residence.
CALCULATE YOUR POINTS
Eligibility to obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency is calculated on points obtained towards language ability, education, work experience, arranged employment, provincial nomination etc. If you are married, use the person with the highest education and language skills as the main applicant. This tool helps you to calculate score based on the answers you provide.
Generally, most of the countries look for applicants, who are skilled in their occupation with atleast 3+ years of experience, possessing a bachelor’s degree or higher qualification, also who prove their proficiency in the English language through various internationally recognized tests. Further for a few countries where applicants have blood relatives already residing or applicants having an offer of employment from an employer in the migrating country will be preferred.

For the PR process, they require identity, qualification, experience, and proof of income, taxation, settlement funds, English language and other documents. The documentation differs from country to country and specific documentation might be required in few cases at various stages. In addition, few countries require Police Clearance Certificates and applicants may have to undergo health examinations as well.
Normally it depends upon the country where you want to migrate and the visa type you are applying, for a few countries it is not a mandatory requirement to show the settlement funds. There are many countries which have it as a mandatory requirement as they basically want to know whether the applicant is aware of the cost of living and have sufficient funds to survive in the new country without depending upon the Government. This is again a basic requirement for a few countries where the visa type is specific to the state or region or the visa is being sponsored by the state or region.
Basic demographic information, in addition to its information relating to qualifications, experience, English language scores, any other country residence information, dependents information, any relatives or friends information staying in the new country, health and character information.
Earlier there used to be a condition that once the PR is granted the applicant(s) need to move out of the country & re-enter. However now this has been relaxed by most of the countries, they are simply making the changes to the visa type and applicant(s) can remain in the new country as per the PR guidelines.
Countries like Australia don’t need the passport to be deposited with the embassy. However few countries it is a mandatory requirement, it depends upon the country which you want to migrate and visa type you are applying.
It completely depends upon the visa type you are applying and the country you want to migrate, few countries it is a mandatory requirement to attend an interview as a part of the process. Normally they want to know the purpose for migration or visit and whether the intentions of the applicant are genuine, they check whether the applicant is meeting the requirements, also whether he/she will be able to survive in the migrating country without any sort of assistance.
Costs will depend upon the country you are applying & the visa type normally there will be a visa fee in the migrating country’s currency, an applicant will have bear the other costs like migration agent fee, notary charges, courier charges, English language test charges, nomination & other authorities fee, in few instances like Parent Migration they might ask for security deposits as a part of assurance of support.
Normally countries like Australia or Canada take 8-12 months or more, it differs from country to country. As per our experience in most of the cases, the duration of the process depends upon the way an applicant has planned his/her migration and willing to bank proactively on the favorable conditions, like how well the applicant is preparing in advance the documentation and other aspects of the process for the next stages. Again it differs from case to case basis & the type of the visa. We need to also understand that the applicant will not have any control on the timelines of the various authorities, however, he/she can definitely control the time consumption in filing the applications from his/her side.
Normally many countries allow spouse & children to be included as a part of the PR visa. Few countries might allow parents of the main applicant as well. After migrating on a PR many countries allow the PR holder to sponsor the close relatives who are eligible to migrate, take parents.
This again depends upon the type of the visa an applicant is planning to migrate few types of visas though they are PR visas will restrict the applicant to work study and live only in a specified state or region initially may be 2-3 years. Normally many countries have PR visas which allow an applicant to live across the country.
This depends upon the type of the visa under which an applicant is planning to migrate few types of visas though they are PR visas will restrict the applicant to work, study and live only in a specified state or region for some initial duration like 2-3 years. Normally many countries have PR visas which allow an applicant to study across the country.
Many countries are issuing the same type of visa to all the dependents included in the PR application, if they get the same visa then automatically it will allow the spouse to enjoy the same rights which are applicable for the main applicant. This applicant needs to check before he/she starts the process.
Countries like the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Italy etc. allow dual citizenship, wherein you can be a citizen of 2 or more countries. In case of countries like India, Singapore, Austria, Saudi Arabia etc. their constitution doesn’t allow dual citizenship, you cannot get Indian Passport or voting rights if you are a citizen of any other country. However, if an applicant wants to be only on a PR in the migrating country can continue his/her citizenship with India.
Countries like Australia, Canada, and the UK etc. allow bringing pets at an extra cost. The pets should have been vaccinated few countries will not allow directly being imported, they need to be parked for few days or months in defined countries, after meeting the standards they will allow the pets into the migrating country’s quarantines for testing, subsequently, the pets are reunited with the owners.
Many countries have made it mandatory to have a medical examination done before issuing the PR visa. Normally as a part of the examination process, they check if the applicant is free from the contagious diseases, he/she is possessing good health condition and don’t need assistance or will not depend upon the society or government or will not depend upon their health care system.
Applicants holding a PR will definitely have an advantage and will be preferred by the employers. There are many international job sites. where an applicant can post the profiles and get in touch with prospective employers. It is advisable to have a job before entering the new country so that applicants don’t have to face any problems in getting a job in the new country.
Generally many countries advice applicants to make the initial entry before the expiry of health & character certificates already submitted as a part of the PR process. For countries like Australia, they specify in the grant the initial entry date before which all the applicants included in the visa should make first entry.
Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) is issued to Indian Passport holders when they apply for immigration, residential status, employment, or a long-term visa. People going abroad on a Tourist or Visit visa do not require a PCC.
You will have to submit a PCC if you intend migrating to the CANADA, U.S.A., the U.K. or Australia. Do note that you do not need a PCC for a Tourist visa.
