Canada Visa: Express Entry Application 2024

The Canadian Government is excited to announce the opening of the Express Entry Visa application portal, welcoming applications from foreign immigrants eager to make Canada their permanent home and contribute to its thriving economy. We extend a warm invitation to individuals like you to assess your eligibility and submit your application.

Express Entry provides a streamlined application process for skilled immigrants aiming to settle in Canada permanently. Commencing in early July, international students, skilled workers, and other immigrants can seek permanent residence through various immigration streams, including the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program. The ministry assures that the majority of new applications will be processed within a service standard of six months.

How Express Entry Works: Express Entry manages three immigration programs:

  2. Federal Skilled Worker Program:
    • For skilled workers with foreign work experience.
    • Applicants must meet education and other specified criteria.
  3. Federal Skilled Trades Program:
    • For skilled workers qualified in a skilled trade.
    • Applicants must possess a valid job offer or a certificate of qualification.

How to Apply:

The application process for the 2023 Express Entry Canada Visa is straightforward. Follow the steps outlined below:

Step 1: Determine Your Eligibility

There are two ways to assess your eligibility for a program within Express Entry:

Step 2: Check your score

If you meet the eligibility criteria for one or more of the Express Entry programs and submit your profile, you will undergo ranking within the Express Entry pool utilizing the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

The CRS is a points-based system utilized to:

  • Evaluate and assign scores to your profile
  • Rank your profile within the Express Entry pool

To be invited, you need to have a score above the minimum points score for your round of invitations. [Use the CRS tool to estimate your score]

Step 3: Get your documents ready

Should you choose to complete a profile, you will require documents, including language test results, to demonstrate your eligibility for Express Entry. As certain documents may require a significant amount of time to obtain, it is advisable to prepare them well in advance.
