Express Entry represents a revolutionary selection system the Canadian government employs to manage applications for three critical economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class. Its implementation has transformed the immigration landscape, emphasizing a merit-based approach that evaluates candidates based on age, education, language proficiency, and work experience.

With a dedicated team of professionals well-versed in the ever-evolving immigration policies, Done Visa ensures clients navigate the Express Entry system confidently and precisely.

Express Entry Eligibility Criteria

Canada's Express Entry system is a competitive and points-based immigration process that aims to select skilled and qualified candidates for permanent residency. Understanding the eligibility criteria is the first step toward a successful application through this system. Done Visa guides applicants through this complex process, ensuring they meet all the requirements.

To be eligible for Express Entry, candidates must fall under one of the three federal economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), or the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Each program has its own set of criteria, but there are standard requirements that applicants must meet:

  1. Education Credentials Assessment (ECA): Candidates must have their foreign education credentials assessed by an approved organization to ensure they are equivalent to Canadian standards. Done Visa assists applicants in obtaining a valid ECA.
  2. Language Proficiency: Proficiency in English or French is crucial. Applicants must take an approved language test (IELTS for English, TEF for French) and score above the minimum threshold. Done Visa guides, preparing for and taking language proficiency tests.
  3. Work Experience: Depending on the program, candidates must have work experience in a skilled occupation. This experience should be within the last ten years and be classified under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) system.
  4. Express Entry Profile: All eligible candidates must create an Express Entry profile and be assigned a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The CRS score is based on age, education, language proficiency, work experience, and adaptability. Done Visa helps applicants optimize their profiles for a higher CRS score.
  5. Job Offer (Optional): While not mandatory, having a valid job offer from a Canadian employer can significantly boost an applicant's CRS score. Done Visa assists in navigating the job search and offers acceptance process.
  6. Provincial Nomination (Optional): Some provinces in Canada have their immigration streams linked to Express Entry. Obtaining a provincial nomination can add additional points to an applicant's CRS score. Done Visa advises on local nomination opportunities and requirements.

Successfully meeting these eligibility criteria sets the foundation for a competitive Express Entry application. Once eligibility is confirmed, applicants can move forward with the assistance of Done Visa in navigating the step-by-step application process.
