To be eligible you must score a minimum of 60 points out of 100. Candidates with the highest scores will be invited to apply for the SINP. In the second step, you must submit an official application for provincial nomination. Once your application is approved you can directly apply to the Canadian government for your permanent resident status.
The processing time for the visa can vary between 4 to 32 weeks depending on the subcategory you are applying under.
