Federal Immigration - Express Entry Immigration
Immigration to Canada through Express Entry is divided into several stages:
Preparing your initial document package
Stage 2: Express Entry Profile creation
After you provide us with your language tests and Education Credential Assessment certificate, we will register you in the Express Entry system and the Job Bank. We claim all the factors for which we want you to get points in the system and list all your personal information.
Stage 3: Invitation to Apply
Once your Express Entry profile is created, the Federal government knows that you are willing to immigrate to Canada permanently. Usually, every second Wednesday, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) hold rounds of invitations, also known as Express Entry draws. In each round, IRCC invites a certain number of candidates with the highest scores to apply for Permanent Residence.
Stage 4: PR Application Submission
Once you get the Invitation to Apply (ITA), we will submit your full application supported by the proper documents. At this stage, you will also need to pay the government fees for processing your application (mandatory) and the right to permanent residency fee (optional).
Stage 5: Application processing
This stage is the longest in the whole process. The Federal government will check your application for completeness and make sure that you satisfy all the requirements of your immigration program. During this stage, you will have to pass the medical exam and background check. The background check consists of criminality and security assessments. In some cases, the IRCC may request additional documents to make a final decision.
Stage 6: Becoming a Permanent Resident
Once all checks are cleared, you will receive a Ready for Visa email with the request to send your passports or passport copies to the Visa office. 3-4 weeks after that you will get a Confirmation of the Permanent Residency. With this document, you will be able to come to Canada and do the landing. After the landing, you will be officially a Permanent Resident of Canada.
