Canada PR Process 2018
Canada’s Permanent Resident Visa (PRV) is the most popular visa sought by skilled workers interested in migration to the popular destination. The Maple Leaf Country has zero tolerance policy towards discrimination and has a lot to offer to those who want to work and settle abroad.
No wonder, it is hardly a matter of surprise that every year, the popular and world-renowned immigration destination grabs the attention of hundreds and thousands of skilled workers. The year 2018 is no different. In fact, with time the popularity of the Maple Leaf Country has further increased and so has the number of applicants keen to move to the destination.
It is the country’s most popular immigration system and very much similar to Australia’s General Skilled Migration Programme (GSM). Potential applicants create an online profile and compete with other applicants in the Express Entry Pool and their credentials analyzed on the basis of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The maximum point scorers get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and ninety days to claim Canadian PR Visa.
Express Entry is the easiest way for skilled migration to Canada. The system has done away with many old norms such as the principle of ‘first come’, first serve’. Now applicants are picked on the basis of their merit.
Canada Immigration Processing Time for Skilled Workers
The IRCC has laid down clear guidelines regarding the PR application processing time period. Once you have been given an ITA, you will get maximum 90 to apply for your PR Visa, and the processing time period will begin from the day IRCC accepts your application, which, as mentioned earlier, is six months or less depending on your application and the documents submitted along with it.
The major cause of delay or application rejection is the submission of incomplete application. The IRCC processes only complete the application and if an applicant fails to submit all the required documents his application will be considered incomplete and will not be further processed.
Summing up, Canada immigration processing time for skilled workers is six months or less. If one compares with the time required before for the purpose, this time is very less and the process very speedy.
