Every individual looking towards entering the new avenues of their lives in Canada, often team up towards finding the best possible ways to get the Canadian Visa. There are a number of ways to receive the desired Visa processing in the most befitting forms. However, the two primarily considered ways are through the Canada PNP and the Express Entry Program.
Herein, we are throwing a little light on the projections and major things one is desired to be aware of both. Much in depth knowledge can be gained through the consultation at DV Dhaliwal Immigration Consultancy.
Both of these are referred to as the Canadian Visa entry program with a basic difference i.e. for PNP application, a job offer from a company in Canada should be initiated, however, for the express entry program, there isn’t any such mandatory requirement.
PNP stands for Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which offers a provincial nomination to the candidates, routing them towards being the Canadian permanent residents. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) permits the different Canadian provinces and territories to nominate an individual who is willing to immigrate to Canada and settle in any of the particular province.
Each Canadian province and territory holds their own unique Provincial Nominee Program.
Each PNP holds a minimum of one immigration stream, aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system.
The PNP program is mainly for workers who fall under any of these:
Have particular skills, education, and work experience for contributing to the economy of a specific Canadian province or territory
Are willing to live in any particular province
Are willing to become the permanent residents of Canada
Each province and territory holds its own â€œstreamsâ€ and requirements. Few of the streams may include any of the following:-
The application process for the same may depend on the Provincial Nominee Program stream one is applying to.
No matter what process you adopt, it is very important to undergo a medical exam and get a police check (certificate) before applying for either of these.
PNP is a process under which one has to apply to the province or territory for nomination under the non-Express Entry stream.
However, one needs to meet the eligibility requirements of the province, submit the application for permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
Then pass the medical exam and get a police check (certificate).
Application processing may take longer through this [process as compared to the Express Entry Process.
Express Entry Stream
Express Entry is referred to the selection system for Canadian immigration, which is designed for immigration of the selected skilled workers to Canada.
This involves a completely electronic process in association with the federal government, provincial governments, and the Canadian employers.
Individuals can apply under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) through the Express Entry process, if they have been offered a job in Canada.
Under the online Express Entry process, the major points to consider are:
Language skills are given a lot of weight for the Express Entry stream. The desired candidates need to submit their biometrics details, mandatorily. Express Entry draws are conducted almost every two weeks by The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Tie-breakers are even applied in the Express Entry draws
These are few of the points to consider while applying for a Canadian visa under the PNP and Express Entry Stream.
