Eligibility for Express Entry
For you to apply through the express entry you must meet the eligibility criteria. Once eligible you will apply to the Canadian government through an expression of Interest application which is all done online. Applicants who meet the minimum requirements will be placed in pool and are then ranked using a Comprehensive Ranking System. Periodically, a certain number of the highest ranked applicants will be invited to apply for Permanent Residence. If a candidate receives an Invitation to apply (ITA) they will have a specified period determined by the Canadian government to submit an application for permanent residence with all documents used to initially get the ITA.
Other candidates in the Express Entry pool who are yet to be issued an ITA will remain in the pool for a maximum period of 12 months after which they will be removed from the pool. At this point a candidate can go back into the pool by filling another expression of interest. For you to know which option for Immigrating to Canada is appropriate for you…
