The processing time for applications for migration to another country varies from one country to another.

Let us look at the processing time for the permanent residence applications of two popular countries for migrate overseas – Canada and Australia.


How soon you will get your permanent residence depends on the Canada immigration program applying under.

The Express Entry system offers a standard processing time of within six months.

Three of the main economic immigration programs of Canada come under the federal Express Entry system –

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP),
  2. Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and
  3. Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), commonly called Canadian PNP, has around 80 immigration pathways or ‘streams’ The processing times vary from stream to stream.

For the Quebec skilled Workers Program (QSWP), a provincial immigration program run by the Quebec province, the processing time is between 12-16 months.

The processing time depends to a large extent on the volume of submissions. For some programs, the number of people applying is generally consistent every month. For certain immigration programs, the number of applications can vary in the year. Similarly, some programs have specific application times during the year.

The processing time is the period between the day the authorities receive your complete application and the day a decision is made on the application.


Skilled immigration to Australia is as per a points-based immigration system, requiring a candidate to score 65 points on the Australia Eligibility Calculation before they can expect an invitation through SkillSelect.

Your application is assessed based on your score under various eligibility criteria that include age, education, language proficiency, work experience etc. The General Skilled Migration or GSM program is the most popular way to apply for Australia permanent residence.
