How to apply for PR in Canada from outside Canada
At Paul Abraham Immigration Consulting, we understand the importance of finding the right pathway to Canada. That's why we are here to guide you through the process of applying for PR in Canada, even if you are currently outside the country.
Now, let's explore the requirements and steps to apply for PR in Canada from outside the country.
1. Check Your Eligibility:
Before starting your application, it's important to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria set by the Canadian government. Factors such as age, language proficiency, education, work experience, and adaptability play a significant role in determining your eligibility for PR.
2. Gather the Required Documents:
Collecting the necessary documents is a crucial step in the PR application process. These documents may include but are not limited to:
- Passport or travel document
- Educational transcripts and certificates
- Language test results (IELTS, CELPIP, or TEF)
- Proof of work experience
- Police clearance certificates
- Proof of funds
- Medical examination results
Our experienced consultants will guide you through the document collection process, ensuring that you have all the necessary paperwork to support your application.
3. Create an Express Entry Profile:
The Express Entry system is one of the most popular pathways to obtain PR in Canada. It manages the applications for three federal economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
4. Calculate Your CRS Score:
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a points-based system used to assess and rank candidates in the Express Entry pool.
5. Submit Your Application:
Once you have completed the above steps, it's time to submit your PR application. The application process may vary depending on the program you are applying through.
6. Wait for the Invitation to Apply (ITA):
This step allows you to submit your complete application within a specified timeframe, typically 60 days.
7. Medical Examination and Security Clearance:
As part of the PR application process, you will be required to undergo a medical examination to ensure you meet the health requirements set by the Canadian government. Additionally, a security clearance is necessary to ensure admissibility to Canada.
8. PR Visa Issuance:
Once your application is approved, you will receive your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and a PR visa. This visa allows you to travel to Canada and complete your landing process as a permanent resident.
