    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS – FAQ

    Loading...
    How can I work in the U.S.?2020-10-08T08:17:46+00:00

    There are several categories for which you can apply to work in the U.S. This is dependent on your skills, education and work experience. For example, there are several non-immigrant, temporary visas, such as H-1B Specialty Occupation, or L-1 Intra-company transferee. There are even immigrant work visas that can be obtained through a labor certification, or if you are a individual who has extraordinary ability.

    What is the minimum investment under the EB-5 investor visa ?2020-10-08T08:14:58+00:00

    The minimum investment amount depends on whether you are investing in a targeted employment area (TEA) or not. For TEA investment, the amount is $900,000 and if you invest in non-TEA, the minimum investment amount is $1.8 million

    Can my Permanent Resident spouse sponsor me to come to the U.S.2020-10-08T08:03:12+00:00

    Yes. Marriage Based sponsorship is available to both U.S. citizens and U.S. green card holders; however, the processing times may be longer if your spouse is not a U.S. citizen.

    Can I apply for a K-1 Fiancé Visa if I am in the U.S?2020-10-08T08:18:57+00:00

    No. K-1 visas are specifically for fiancés who are residing outside of the U.S. and eventually come to the U.S. to get married. The fiancé enters the U.S. on a temporary visa and then the couple has 90 days to get married.

    What is a “green card”?2020-10-08T07:59:29+00:00

    A “Green Card” is the other term for permanent resident card. It allows you to live, work and study in the U.S. permanently. There are multiple ways you can receive a green card, some of which include family sponsorship, employment, diversity visa or asylee

    What is Express Entry?2020-10-08T07:07:24+00:00

    No. Express Entry is an online management system that Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses to rank potential candidates against one another

    What is the minimum number of CRS Score I need to qualify for Express Entry?2020-10-08T10:12:11+00:00

    Technically, there is no minimum threshold. However, by looking at scores for 2020, CRS scores have ranged from 471-478 for FSW, FST average is 450 and CEC is 415. In addition, there are Provinces who actively pick candidates from the Express Entry pool (Nova Scotia, Ontario) and if they are within the parameters being targeted, the CRS score is much lower.

    What is the ideal candidate for the Express Entry Federal Skilled Worker Program?2020-10-08T07:07:35+00:00

    Anyone with a bachelor’s degree or higher should consider applying; however, those between the ages of 20-29, with a master’s degree / PhD, plus 3+ years of work experience will generally be the most competitive

    What is a Provincial Nomination (PNP)?2020-10-08T07:07:41+00:00

    PNP Nominations are issued by the Province to candidates who have the required skills and experience targeted by the Province. PNP nominations add 600 points to your overall CRS score and will give you enough points to guarantee that you will be picked from the Express Entry pool and receive an Invitation to Apply

    What Are the Easiest Provinces to receive a PNP Nomination?2020-10-08T07:07:47+00:00

    Alberta has typically been one of the easiest Provinces because the minimum CRS score was around 300. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic, they are only choosing candidates who already reside (work, school) in the Province. Saskatchewan also has a PNP program where candidates do not require a job offer, but candidates must score high enough on the Province’s score criteria. Ontario is the most active PNP and has targeted occupations where the CRS score is around 450 and a job offer is not required. We may explore other Province’s depending on your specific skills and experience.

    Are language tests required to file for Canada Permanent Residency?2020-10-08T07:07:53+00:00

    Most, if not all Pathways require language testing, with their own requirements. Generally, Federal Programs have higher minimum language score requirements, while Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) and Pilot Programs are lower. For example, each of the (3) Federal Express Entry programs do require language tests and each has its own Canadian language benchmark (CLB) requirement. Once you determine which program you are eligible for, you determine if you have the minimum language scores. Under the FSWP = NOC 0, A, or B, with a CLB 7 (6 in each area), CEC = NOC 0, A, with a CLB 7, NOC B, with a CLB 5, and, FST = Speaking/Listening = CLB 5, Reading Writing = CLB 4. On the other hand, non-Express Entry PNP’s typically require a minimum CLB of 4 (Saskatchewan, Alberta, etc). The higher the language scores, more competitive you will be in the pool.

    Can I qualify under Express Entry without a job offer?2020-10-08T07:07:59+00:00

    Yes. So long as your Express Entry CRS scores are high enough, you do not need a job offer. A job offer may be difficult to obtain if you are not in Country. Essentially, a job offer is recommended if your CRS scores are too low to qualify you for the Federal Skilled Worker program.
