Understand the immigration procedure
Most immigration programs including the PNP and QSWP program follow the Express Entry method of applying for a PR visa. If you can understand the Express Entry system, it will be easy to understand other immigration programs. If you are
applying through the PNP, just like the Express Entry program you will have to make a profile, get a qualifying score and your profile will be entered among a pool of candidates and if you make the cut as a high ranking profile, you will get an invitation to apply (ITA) for a PR visa in the immigration draw.
Qualifying score is the minimum points you need to score under the Comprehensive Ranking System or the CRS. The CRS score can vary with every immigration draw.
What is the age limit for immigration to Canada?
The age limit to apply for Canada immigration is 46 years. If you are above this age, you will not score any points under the age criteria when applying under the Express Entry program. This can lower your CRS score.
However, you can still gather enough points on other factors like skills, language proficiency, job offer, education etc. These factors can give you the required CRS score to enter the Express Entry pool.
What CRS score is required for Canada PR?
This is a points-based system that is used to score and assess immigrants. It is used to give a score to the profile of immigrants and provide a ranking in the Express Entry pool. The assessment fields for the score include:
· Language ability
· Work experience
· Other factors
Immigration candidates who submit their profiles to the Express Entry pool are assigned a CRS score out of 1200 points. The Express Entry draw is conducted every two weeks and those with high CRS scores are invited to apply for the PR visa. The CRS score usually varies with every Express Entry draw.
What is a good score in IELTS for Canada immigration?
For Canada immigration, the IELTS conducts its English proficiency test in terms of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB). The scores are hence measured in CLB.
A good IELTS score can add to your CRS points and add the required eligibility points you will need to migrate. Ideally you must aim for CLB 10 to get 32 to 34 CRS points. The IELTS score of an applicant’s spouse can also add to the CRS points.
