The impact of this general election on immigration.
The September 20 Canadian general election, which will determine Canadian Prime Minister, who will serve four years, and lawmakers in each region, will affect Canadian immigration over the next four years, so everyone should pay attention to it. The reason why this general election affects immigration to Canada is that the state is recruiting new immigrants through programs and regulations suitable for each state, but it is the federal government that finally manages immigration policies. For example, the IRCC Immigration Bureau decides and delivers immigrants and procedures to each state, and the IRCC Immigration Bureau delivers them to the state, resulting in a plan to accommodate immigrants in accordance with the IRCC Immigration's plan. And the IRCC will be instructed by a political party that will be formed after this general election, so the direction of immigration to Canada depends on the party to be located on September 20. From now on until the new government is established, the IRCC Immigration Bureau and state governments will maintain their existing immigration policies. In other words, Express Entry and PNP will continue, and selection and approval will continue to produce results. In general, it takes about 1-2 months for the ruling party to decide on ministers and key figures after the election. Since then, the prime minister assigns tasks to each minister, including immigration ministers, the immigration office's policy will officially be affected by the ruling party and state immigration from a month or two after the new government takes office. For example, in 2019, there was a general election in October 2019, a cabinet announcement in November, and a power of attorney was announced in January 2020. In 2015, there was an election in October 2015, and in November, the cabinet and power of attorney were announced together. As such, a power of attorney has been announced as early as one month or at the latest three months, it is expected that the cabinet and power of attorney will be announced by December this year after the general election in September. And another reason why this general election is important is that the immigration plan for 2022-2024 will soon be announced. Since the 2022-2024 immigration plan is planned in accordance with the direction of the ruling party, immigration policies for the next three years will be established under the ruling party. The announcement will determine the number of immigrants to accommodate every year and the number of immigrants to be allocated to each state. And the immigration period may be affected by the budget that the ruling party will apply to the immigration office. All policies are expected to be officially applied from the beginning of 2022, so if you have already received permanent residency or permanent residency is scheduled to be received soon, you will not be affected by the new government's policy. However, if you are planning to officially proceed with permanent residency next year or after, the method or duration of permanent residency may change depending on this general election, so it will be easier to obtain permanent residency in the future.
Am I able to enter Canada without PR
If a Canadian permanent resident wants to enter Canada again after visiting a country outside of Canada, he or she must have a PR card. You must have it. PR cards can be seen as similar to a kind of eTA. Canadian citizenship... Visitors who are not permanent residents must have an eTA to enter Canada via air from abroad. As you do, a Canadian permanent resident must have a valid PR card to enter Canada via air. I need it. The misunderstanding here is that when the PR card expires, the PR status expires. Yes, but as I explained above, PR cards are only needed to enter Canada by air. Even if you don't have a card, you can maintain your Canadian permanent residency if you meet the PR status conditions. Permanent residency in Canada. The maintenance conditions require you to live in Canada for more than two years within the last five years. For example, permanent residency in Canada. He/she has lived in Canada for more than two years after possession, but even if he/she does not have a PR card, he/she will maintain his/her permanent residency as It's possible and you can get all the benefits of permanent residents. But when you go abroad and come back to Korea, PR... Since you don't have a card, you may have difficulty entering the card. For your information, PR cards can only be extended while living in Canada. While living abroad, PR. You can't extend your card and you can definitely extend your PR card after entering Canada again. So If you plan to leave the country, you must check the expiration date of the PR card in advance and make a plan to make it easier to re-enter the country. You can do it. If you visit overseas and your PR card expires or loses it, of course, how to re-enter the country... There is. You can enter the country with the approval of a PRTD document called the Permanent Resident Travel Document. After that, you can extend the PR card within Canada. Only permanent residents living abroad apply for PRTD. You can apply at VAC, the Visa Application Center. At this time, the application fee is 50 dollars. It occurs and the procedure period may vary depending on the situation of each VAC. It'll be approved in 1-2 weeks at the earliest. It can take months if it's long, so if you need to get approval for PRTD, you have to prepare and register in advance. We do. Once approved, PRTD is valid for 6 months and can enter Canada within that period. When receiving a PR card for the first time, it is usually valid for 5 years, but depending on the expiration period of the applicant's passport, it is sometimes 5 years. In some cases, approval may be made below. If you do this, you can extend your PR card in advance. In the past, If the PR card was extended, it was approved within an average of 3-6 months, but recently, due to COVID-19, the procedure was checked. It's hard to predict the exact duration, so if you plan to go abroad soon, you have to extend your PR card in advance. I am doing.
Canadian Temporary Permanent Residency Program (TR to PR) Additional 7,307 people received the invitation
If you are interested in permanent residency, you may have heard of TR to PR pathway, a temporary permanent residency program announced on May 6 this year. TR to PR pathway is a total of six programs that have been announced in six streams: English-speaking graduates living in Canada, English-speaking compulsory workers, English-speaking healthcare workers, French-speaking compulsory workers, and French-speaking healthcare workers. Among them, the most popular stream was for English-speaking graduates, which immediately reached its capacity limit of 40,000 and closed early in just 25 hours. Because of the sudden rush of applicants at this time, 47,307 applications were actually received much more than planned due to system. In other words, 7,307 additional applications were received, 18% more than the immigration office's target. The reason for this computer error was that all applications were received online and when the first application was received, the government website checked whether there were applications received hourly and aggregated the total applications. However, some applications received at the same time were aggregated into only one. In other words, if two applicants were submitted at the same time, the system recognized the application as a single application and received this additional amount. After finding this error, Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino decided to proceed with all 7,307 additional temporary applications for equity. He also sent an e-mail to applicants for additional applications, saying he made the decision because he was concerned that the cancellation would have adverse consequences for applicants who had trusted and waited. However, this decision is not supported by everyone. Most applicants are very favorable to the Immigration Service, which has agreed to grant these additional permanent residency opportunities, but some say it is unfair to elect additional applications, with more than 40,000 initially announced in the policy. And when we first planned and proceeded with the TR to PR Pathway, we were hired based on 40,000 people for the first time, so we expect additional people to be assigned or the existing application to be delayed a little. There was a rumor that we would receive additional 7,307 applications due to misunderstanding of this news, but there should be no misunderstanding as it means that we will proceed with additional applications due to immigration errors.
Introducing eTA(Electronic Travel Permit) for Entry to Canada
With the recent lifting of restrictions on entry to Canada, more and more visitors are looking to travel, study, employment or visit Canada for permanent residency purposes. In order to come to Canada like this, you need to know exactly what eTA you need to enter Canada and prepare for entry. Canada is not a country where anyone can travel just by having a passport. Depending on your nationality, you must obtain an electronic travel permit called Visa or eTA to enter or transfer by air through a Canadian airport. The eTA is an abbreviation for Electronic Travel Authorization, which allows you to apply separately and enter Canada by plane. Once you apply for an eTA, you will be approved for up to 5 years. However, if you get a new passport or change your passport number, you will be able to enter Canada by air after you get your eTA approved again. If you enter Canada by air with an eTA, you will generally be able to stay in Canada for 6 months from the date of entry, and you will be able to live in Canada additionally through a visa permit extension application before the expiration of 6 months. As I said above, eTA is necessary when entering Canada by air. In other words, if you enter Canada by land from the United States, you don't need an eTA, or if you're already living in Canada, you don't need an eTA if you're traveling in Canada by domestic flight. However, just because there is an eTA, it does not necessarily mean that you can enter Canada. The eTA is literally a permit to fly to Canada, allowing entry to Canada after final entry to Canada is confirmed with the officer at the Canadian International Airport. For your information, not all Canadian travelers can apply for eTA. Only travelers with citizenship in countries subject to visa waiver can enter via eTA and other citizenship holders must register visa separately for entry into Canada. In general, eTA applications are simpler than Visa applications, and eTAs can be approved as soon as minutes after they are received. Of course, depending on the case, it may take hours or months, and the cost is lower than Visa in Canadian dollars, which can be accepted immediately at $7: If the application is made online, the application will include basic personal information such as name, passport information, employment information, purpose of entry, scheduled date, etc. The important thing at this time is that if the passport information is incorrect or the name is incorrect when receiving the eTA, it can be a problem when entering the country even if the eTA is approved. After approval, it automatically links to your passport, so you can take your passport with you right away without an approval letter. Because this simple and fast approved eTA is not necessarily approved quickly, if you have changed your passport, plan to enter Canada, or plan to live in Canada, we recommend that you register in advance for approval if you plan to go abroad.
Canada Immigration, BCPNP current situation
Many permanent resident applicants are again focusing on PNP state immigration after the most recent EE-CEC selection saw a sharp increase in the selection score to receive invitation. EE-CEC's starting score went down to 300 points from May this year to 357 points on June 24 and July 22, but it recently reduced the number of starting players from August 5 to 404. As a result, many applicants who were looking forward to EE-CEC selection are looking for other immigration methods. Other immigration methods include AIPP, RNIP, Agri-food pilot program, and family-invited immigration, but among them, permanent residency methods, which have attracted the most attention, are BCPNP, which has also seen a slight drop in starting scores. BCPNP's basic goal is to give workers in high demand jobs in BC state an opportunity to acquire permanent residency in Canada more easily than applicants in other jobs. This allows BC states to fill the scarce workforce of high-demand jobs, which also makes it easier for applicants to obtain permanent residency. BCPNP has two major immigration streams, Skills Immigration and Express Entry, but as a result, they are registered with BCP using the same score calculation method. After registration, if you are registered with a higher score than the starting score in the selection, you will receive invitation, and then you will receive the same documents as Express Entry. What's different from Express Entry is that you have to submit documents within 30 days of receiving the invitation, and you have to prepare and submit documents from some companies as well as your personal documents. Recently, approximately three months after receipt of the BCPNP document, Nominee, or state review, will be approved, and then the document will be prepared and received back to the federal government. The method of calculating scores is divided according to experience, educational background, occupation, region, salary, and English score. Since February this year, BCPNP's selection has been conducted twice a month, dividing positions. One selection is made by collecting restaurant managers and wholesale and retail managers, while the other is selected separately by collecting restaurant managers and wholesale and retail managers. The reason why only restaurant managers and wholesale and retail managers are selected separately is that there are many applicants registered in these two jobs among the jobs registered in BCPNP. According to the state's announcement, these additional selections will balance the employment needed in BC's local labor market. According to the latest number of starters and scores, 361 were selected on August 3, the most recent selection, 89 to 91 for Skilled Worker, and 77 to 79 for International Graduate. Before that, we consistently select 350 people, 323 on July 20, 342 on July 6, and 341 on June 22, and the score for Skilled Worker has been lowered to about 101 points compared to earlier this year, and the International Grade has been lowered to 100. Of course, the number of permanent residency applicants dropped sharply in the first half of 2021 through Express Entry, as many permanent residency applicants proceeded to EE, not BCPNP, and the number of applicants increased from 190 earlier this year to 350 now. As the score of EE's last selection goes up, we will have to watch all immigration trends again, but EE is not the only way to immigrate, so please understand your conditions and prepare for permanent residency.
Immigration to Canada, over 400 points again! What is the forecast for EE (Express Entry) scores in the future?
On Thursday, August 5th, EE-CEC was selected once again. However, this selection was a heavyweight for many applicants who had hope for invitation. Looking at EE-CEC's selection trend this year, it gave 4,750 invitations in the first selection on January 7th, and at that time, the starting score was 461. Since then, as everyone knows, the starting score has been lowered to 75 points, which is the lowest ever, on February 13, and 6,000 people have been selected steadily, down to the early 400 points and 357 points, the second lowest point of the year, on June 24. And I was maintaining 357 points on July 22nd, the previous starter. However, the starting score from 357 points suddenly rose to 404 points because the selection was 3,000 on August 5th, which was only half of the previous selection. As a result, applicants who had maintained between 350 and 400 points to receive invitation in this selection failed to receive the invitation and waited for the next selection. As the score suddenly rises, there are many concerns that the score of permanent residency will rise again in the future, but it is too early to conclude. The reason is that the target number of immigrants announced by the Canadian Immigration Service is 401,000, while the number of permanent residency approved during the first half of this year is 143,000, less than 50%. In other words, the Immigration Service is not meeting its target immigration plan. This requires the approval of over 43,000 permanent residency per month to meet the target new immigrants for the rest of the year. In addition, the Canadian Immigration Service has already announced its plan to accommodate immigrants by 2023, which is expected to receive more than 1 million new immigrants by 2023 with the aim of maintaining more than 400,000 per year, the largest number in history. As anyone who is looking closely at EE selection knows, recent selection is only conducted with EE-CEC and EE-PNP selection. Professional immigration FSW and technical immigration FST are not currently selecting. The reason is that 90% of applicants who proceed with CEC or PNP are already in Canada. Before COVID-19, it would have been meaningless to live in Canada now, but at a time when there are restrictions on entry to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Canadian government has made the move to protect its citizens. However, the recent lifting of restrictions on entry to Canada on August 9th and September 7th suggests that the selection of FSW and FST could also be resumed. However, it is not easy to select until the end of this year because the spread of COVID-19 has not decreased and the Dalta or Lambda mutations are still coming out. Given the above reasons, of course, the score has increased temporarily due to the decrease in the number of starters in this selection, but it is predicted that it will not be easy to reach 460 points as before. Of course, it's hard to predict that the score will fall back to the 350s, and we don't know how long this system will last, so if it's the right time to immigrate to Canada, we'll do it right away and make sure we don't miss this opportunity. Even if you don't know how to proceed with permanent residency yet or think it won't work when you decide, many permanent residency methods have recently been introduced, so please review your case and find a suitable permanent residency.
Drunk driving records and entry to Canada.
Canada is more strict about drunk driving than other countries, as it often fails to even enter the country if it has a drunk driving record of drunk driving. In fact, even before 2018, Canada was not strict enough to drive under the influence of alcohol, but since December 18, 2018, Canada has been more severely punishing to increase the maximum penalty of driving under the influence of alcohol from five to ten years, which is why it is impossible to enter Canada even after a few years. Briefly speaking of past criminal records and entry into Canada, most cases of misdemeanors in the past are considered automatic pardons after 10 years and can be entered without additional pardons. However, if there is a record of felony crimes, or prosecutable crimes that are punishable by up to 10 years, they will not be automatically pardoned after 10 years, and will be required to apply for a separate pardon, be approved and entered the country. In case of drunk driving, as mentioned above, it was considered an automatic pardon after 10 years because it was sentenced to less than 5 years until December 18, 2018, but now it is punishable by more than 10 years, so if there is a related record, you must enter the country with a pardon or other immigration procedures. With these related records, you can enter Canada in two ways. First, you can live in Canada after entering the country through a temporary residence permit called Temporary Resident Permit (TRP). As above, if you want to enter Canada after drunk driving, you must now enter the country with a pardon. But in order to grant amnesty, you can apply for an amnesty after five years of paying a criminal fine or executing all the sentences. In other words, if it hasn't been more than five years, you can't even get a pardon. In this case, you can apply for TRP, not amnesty, and enter the country after approval. TRP is a temporary non-entry exemption that allows people who cannot enter Canada to enter Canada, and if approved, they can stay up to three years. Of course, TRP does not give everyone an easy approval, but it must submit the reason why the applicant must come to Canada, or why he or she is in Canada, along with relevant evidence. These documents and contents should be checked by the Immigration Service and determined subjectively by the Examiner, so the valid reasons for persuading the Examiner should be explained in detail from the beginning. The second way is to apply for a pardon called Rehabilitation. You can apply for pardons only after more than 5 years of being sentenced. Once amnesty is applied and approved, the previous criminal record is no longer a problem for entry into Canada and is not an obstacle to receiving permanent residency. However, it takes an average of 1 to 2 years to apply for amnesty and get approval, and there is no guarantee that the amnesty will be 100%, so you have to write down why this incident occurred and what kind of mindset you will have to take to prevent it from happening again. If there is a record like this, entering Canada may not be easy at first, but there are various ways to solve it. However, as everyone knows, it is important to prevent this from happening in advance because it is not necessary to have these records to easily receive entry to Canada, employment, academic permission, and permanent residency.
Canada announces details of Parents and Grandparents Program 2021
The Immigration Service's official announcement that the 2021 immigration of parents and grandparents will finally resume was made public by Immigration Minister Marco Mandicino on Tuesday, July 20. This process will take effect on September 20, 2021 and an invitation will be sent for the next two weeks. The selection process will be the same as the most recent selection, and invitees who receive the same invitation will prepare formal applications and documents from the Canadian federal government within 60 days. If you have already applied for an interview to sponsor form between October and November last year, you will be automatically applied for this selection, so you don't have to apply in duplicate. Originally, immigration to parents and grandparents took place early every year, but due to the postponement of 2020 immigration to parents and grandparents due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, 2021 immigration to parents and grandparents was postponed and started in September this year. We decided to select 30,000 people, three times more than 10,000 in 2020. As the number of players has increased, the probability of selection was less than 10% last year, but it is expected to be more than 20 to 30% this year. In order to immigrate to parents and grandparents, you must meet the conditions in which your sponsor's child can immigrate. The basic condition is that the sponsor's child must remain a Canadian citizen or permanent resident at least 18 years of age. And the most important condition is financial proof, which the sponsor must prove that he or she has enough income to support all the families that will be financially responsible, including himself. Here, dependents should be calculated including themselves, their immediate family spouses and children, and their parents to be invited. And, as I said above, we need to make sure that we can support it based on income reported to the Canadian Revenue Service over the last three years because we need to have enough income. For your information, you cannot prove it with assets you have already collected, but you can only prove it through income reported in the last three years. This 2021 immigration calculation will be based on the gross incentive listed in the 2020, 2019 and 2018 Notice of Assessment (NOA). For your information, even if we received EI and CREB due to COVID-19 Pandemic, this amount can be added to income and calculated. As such, immigration to parents and grandparents can only be applied to those who meet basic conditions, all applicants must check in advance whether they have enough income to support the number of people who will be financially responsible before submitting the application. If you have a plan to bring your parents or grandparents to Canada, don't miss the immigration of your parents and grandparents on September 20th and prepare in advance so that you can receive the invitation.
New Pathway Program Essential-non health care slot closed
On May 7, 2021, one of the six temporary Canadian permanent residency programs of the Temporary Resident to Permanent Resident Pathway, Worker in Canada: Essential, non-health care streams, closed early on July 16, 2021. In other words, on May 6, the Immigration Service announced six special immigration programs to select 90,000 new immigrants. Among the programs announced at this time, the programs that received a lot of attention are international graduate stream, compulsory occupation stream, and medical-related employee stream. The international graduate stream, which attracted the most attention, ended early after receiving 40,000 applications just 25 hours after its opening. And on July 16, the required job stream closed early 69 days after opening. Originally, the program was announced to close on November 5th, but due to more interest than I thought, both streams were closed early. The remaining stream is for healthcare workers, with only about 2,600 out of a total of 20,000 registered to date. And the other three streams are for French speakers, which will continue to receive applications through November 5, regardless of the number of applicants. As both programs were closed so suddenly, applicants who were preparing for this program were unavoidably unable to register. However, not all programs are yet over and there is still a stream for healthcare workers. A total of 20,000 healthcare workers were scheduled to be selected and there are still about 17,000 seats left. The program meets the requirements if you have worked full-time for more than a year in the last three years, including nurses, doctors, pharmacists, as well as dental workers, dental hygienists, massage therapists, psychologists and social workers. In addition, you must currently work in Canada and submit a score of CLB 4 or higher within two years of the date of application for permanent residency. These permanent residency programs require the main applicant to live in Canada, but family members can acquire permanent residency together, even if they are overseas. You should check to see if your job is included in the stream of healthcare-related workers, as well as a variety of jobs that require you to work at the hospital. In addition, like the Pathway program, we may suddenly open a temporary permanent residency program like a gift to the immigration office, so we should prepare thoroughly to proceed with permanent residency anytime in the future so that we can seize the opportunity we missed this time.
