Is there only a CEC selection in the recent Canadian permanent residency program Express Entry?
There have been a total of six Express Entry selections until April 16 since the entry into Canada on March 18. A total of six starts in about 29 days were the shortest since Express Entry was created in 2015. On April 9, there were two starts on the same day, and from April 9 to April 16, there were four starts in a week. Recently, due to such an unconventional selection, EE's starting score dropped from 470 to 455. If you take a closer look at these selections, there is a difference from the ones previously announced. Only CEC was selected for the selection on March 23, April 9, and April 16, and only EE was selected through PNP for the selection on March 18, April 9, and April 15. In other words, if you look at the existing selections, the selection of CEC (experience immigration), FSW (technical migration), and PNP (state immigration) were always made at the same time, but since March 18, CEC and PNP selection have been held separately, and there has been no FSW selection for a month. We can see why we're suddenly so focused on the selection and the CEC selection, but the biggest impact is COVID-19 (Chorona virus. The CEC was implemented in 2008 to encourage foreign students and foreign workers to have permanent residency, and the number of international students and workers has increased exponentially since then. As a result, I received more permanent residency and contributed greatly to the economic growth of Canada. CEC basically requires a year of experience in Canada, and most CEC applicants already live and work in Canada while applying. Therefore, CEC selection is focused on CEC selection rather than FSW selection because CEC applicants are considered to be less exposed to the risk of COVID-19 than FSW applicants who are relatively overseas or who have a short time to enter Canada. As such, Canada has already settled in Canada and is encouraging the immigration of applicants who are less exposed to COVID-19. It aims to attract more permanent residents and revive the sluggish economy with COVID-19. The expected economic growth in Canada due to CEC is highly regarded. Basically, in order to obtain permanent residency, we need young age, high education, high language skills, Canadian experience, and overseas experience, because by providing permanent residency to these applicants, we can make economic progress through skilled, young workers who already work in Canada. But in Canada, CEC is not the only program, so when the overall immigration score is falling, you have to consider how to obtain the right permanent residency through other immigration methods such as PNP. There are not only EE immigration methods, but there are many immigration methods such as PNP, AINP, and RNIP, so I hope you find out more about them and proceed.
Decrease draw point for Canada immigration program Express Entry
On April 16, he was selected as Express Entry with 455 points, the lowest score of 2020. Express Entry, which had maintained 470 points since November 2019, was finally selected as 467 points when the 470-point wall collapsed on March 23, 2020. Since then, the score has been lowered for each selection, resulting in 464 points for the April 9 start and 455 points for the April 16 start. In about three weeks, the Express Entry score was down by 15 points, giving many Express Entry waiters hope and unexpected selection. There are three main reasons for this sudden drop in Express Entry scores. The first main reason is periodic selection. Looking at the three recent starts, there were starts on March 23, April 9, and April 16, and there were just two weeks, and just another in a week. Decreased points by advancing the time frame for Express Entry, which is selected at an average interval of two weeks and three weeks at the longest. The second reason is a subdivided selection of Express Entry. The commonly known Express Entry selection is for EE programs except EE-CEC, EE-FSW, and EE-PNP's EE-FST, but only EE-CEC and EE-PNP have been selected since March 23rd. While the selection type was reduced from three to two, the EE score was lowered because the number of starters remained at 3,900. Of course, it's not good news for EE-FSW applicants because there hasn't been a selection of EE-FSW for a month. CEC is an immigration law that requires a one-year career in Canada, and FSW is an immigration program that can be applied overseas without a one-year career in Canada. Therefore, FSW applicants who are not currently in Canada due to the recent COVID-19 or who can apply without Canadian experience may not be selected for the time being due to this COVID-19. Finally, it is affected by corona. The public expected that Corona would make immigration more difficult, but it would actually benefit applicants who have already registered for EE Pool. Additional EE competitors have noticeably decreased. Academic certification and English test are required for EE registration, but academic certification and English test have been suspended due to Corona. Therefore, applicants who have already prepared for academic certification and English test can wait for their scores to be lowered after registering EE, but applicants who have not prepared yet have to wait until Corona is calm. Therefore, EE, which is a relative evaluation, is getting lower scores as the competition decreases. We have already selected 30,400 people in 2020, compared to the expected decrease in immigration due to Corona. Compared to a total of 85,300 people selected in 2019, if selected at this rate, it is expected to issue more than 90,000 selection rights in 2020. The government believes attracting new immigrants is a must to revive the economy affected by the COVID-19. The government's previous goal of reviving the Canadian economy by attracting more immigrants is expected to focus on attracting more and more immigrants. You're going through a tough time with COVID-19, but I hope you don't miss the immigration score that's going down this time, as we say crisis is an opportunity.
Canada immigration applying fee will be increase
The Canadian Immigration Service announced that it would raise immigration fees. The new fee rules will take effect as of 9 a.m. (EST) April 30th, and applications received prior to that will be charged at pre-increase fees. However, this fee increase is important for all prospective permanent residency applicants, as the increased exact fee must be paid for applications after April 30th, and the documents will be returned as incomplete if they are not paid. The fee increase is federal expenses that have also been applied to state applicants and accompanying families. The increased types of permanent residency were largely divided into business classes where self-employed and investment immigrants belong, Express Entry, which immigrates with experience and technology, and non-business classes where PNP immigrants belong. The increased fees for applying for permanent residency generally increase by 50%. • Main Applicant: Business Class (self-employed, investment, etc.) $1,050-> $1,575 (50% increase) • Main applicant: non-business class (Express Entry, PNP – Skilled Imigration, Family Invited Immigration, etc.) $550 -> $825 (50% increase) • Companion spouse: $550 - $ $825 (50% increase) • Companion children: $150 -> $225 (50% increase) • Landing cost (RPRF: Right of Permanent Resident Fee): $490 -> $500 (a 2% increase) PNP state fees, Biometric costs and PR card extension costs have been frozen. For example, before April 30, express entry to pay if the denizenship applications for a family of the total cost of immigration, which soared past 1,040 per $ ($ 550 (your listener with the denizenship applications.) + cost $ 490 (Cost : rprf raending)) The total cost of immigration after this April 30, compared with $ 1,325 (cost of celadon with the denizenship applications (which you have $ 835) + (Cost : rprf raending)) increased to $ 500.To pay costs. In addition to this, you also need to pay $85 Biometric. If you apply for Express Entry as a four-member family, you would have previously paid $2,380 (two adults ($550+550+490 (RPRF) + two underage children ($150 + $150) plus an additional $7,220 (US$250+ $100) to pay $2,100 (US$225) after April 30. According to the Immigration Bureau, the increase was the first since 2002, reflecting the rise in the Canadian price index. In addition, the next increase is expected in 2022. We hope that applicants who can prepare for immigration will be able to apply as soon as possible and acquire permanent residency not only for the cost reduction but also for the immigration policy to change in the future.
BC Provincial Nominee Program Impact from Corona
Recently, the CORONA virus (COVID-19) has caused Canada's Immigration Bureau to announce new policies day after day, delay progress, or temporarily suspend some progress. The implementation of Agri-Food Imigration, which was expected to come out earlier this year, has been delayed, and many permits applications have been delayed due to the closure of most Biometrical Centre. On top of that, on March 30th, BCPNP announced that it would temporarily not provide the Invitation to some occupations. A total of 14 jobs were temporarily excluded from the selection, including food, retail, tourism, and lodging. as you can see from the excluded occupations Retail and Wholesale trade manager, restaurant and food service managers, agreement service managers, Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c., administrative officer, an administrative objective, mass terapists, return sales supervisors, food service supervisor, accommodation, travel, tourism and related services services, etc. Chefs, cooks, hair stylists and barbers It is feared that most of the jobs will be directly damaged because many Koreans are engaged in them. The reason for this BCPNP action is that many businesses across Canada have reduced service, laid off employees, and, in some cases, closed down, but among them, the above industries have been more affected than other industries, and the nature of this industry has made employment unstable. Applicants who have already been selected for BCPNP or who are preparing documents or waiting for federal results as Nominees will not be eligible, but who have already applied for BCPNP documents or received an Invitation will not have to worry about this announcement. The excluded jobs were applied from the selection on March 30th, and it is uncertain how much longer they will continue. At the end of COVID-19, the above jobs are expected to be selected again, but if the Canadian economy continues to be affected by COVID-19, it is also important to be concerned that not only the above jobs but also other affected jobs may be added. Applicants who are included in the above jobs and who are about to apply for BCPNP can wait until this COVID-19 ends, but also consider Express Entry or other immigration methods for quick progress or LMIA to maintain their status in Canada. Not only Canada, but also the whole world is suffering from the coronavirus (COVID-19), but the Canadian Immigration Service is continuing to proceed, so I hope you don't give up and apply for a definite immigration.
In a corona state of affairs Who is allowed to enter Canada?
Canada's federal government has continued to change its immigration policy and procedures over the past few weeks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID19). The biggest measure was to enforce travel restrictions from March 18 to June 30, but Canada still allows certain citizenships, permanent residents and temporary residents to enter the country. However, due to the unclear content of this restriction, we have been waiting for more specific conditions and we have finally announced the specific conditions once again. This information ensures that not only citizens and permanent residents but also applicants who had a work permit and a study permit are admitted to the country. In the case of Canadian students, they can enter Canada if they have a study permit or a certificate approved before March 18, 2020. In addition, those who have obtained Work Permit approval from Canada before travel restrictions are imposed can enter Canada. Additionally, if the permanent residency was approved before March 18, 2020, you can enter Kanda. You must bring your passport and certificate before entering the country, and you must quarantine it for 14 days even if you do not have any symptoms after entering the country. Isolation is now a must, so it must be self-isolated for 14 days. Direct family entry into Canada has also been expanded. Only immediate family members of existing Canadian citizens and permanent residents were allowed to enter Canada, but from this time on, they can enter Canada if they have work permit, study permit, or monitor permit in their immediate family. The lineal family that we are talking about includes: • Spouse or cohabitation • Dependent child or spouse's dependent child: 21 years of age or younger • Children of dependent children or of dependent children of spouse: 21 years old or younger • Parents or stepfather, stepmother or his spouse • A guardian or tutor Additional documents required for entry include a marriage certificate, family relation certificate, and basic certificate that can reveal the relationship between you and your immediate family, and a Canadian passport, a permanent card, and a temporary certificate that can confirm your immediate family's status in Canada. Due to the coronavirus (COVID19), the Canadian government is changing its entry sanctions and policies every minute, so if you need to enter Canada, or if you need to proceed with permanent residency or citizenship, we recommend checking the government's policy frequently. I hope the CORONAVID19 will work together to overcome this difficult time in Canada and the world. Please take care of your health and follow the methods to avoid viruses. Thank you.
Effects of Canada Immigration on COVID19
Since last week, Canada has announced a new course of action to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID19). As a result, I understand that there are many concerns that applicants who apply for permanent residency, employment permit, academic permit, and visit visa will be affected. So today, I will tell you about not only permanent residency but also employment permits, academic permits, and visitor visas. The Canadian federal and state governments have said they will continue to proceed with permanent residency and other permits regardless of the coronavirus. Express Entry was selected on March 18 to show that progress is ongoing, and recently, applications for permanent residency and other permits have been updated. We also announced that if this incident does not negatively affect the application form, it will be carried out in the same way as before. However, for Biometrics, which cannot be carried out as it was before, we have announced special policies and periodically have additional update policies. It is common to submit related documents within 60 days when applying for permanent residency with Express Entry, but the submission period has been postponed to 90 days for applicants who received the right to select on March 18. In the case of applicants who have already received the right to select, if they cannot submit documents within 60 days, they also announced that they will extend the period by submitting a statement of reasons. The Canadian government also has a plan book in place during the Corona response period because applicants know it takes time or is impossible to get all the documents. Applicants who need to apply for a job permit, academic permit, and visiting visa will continue to apply and will be able to live on an embedded status until the application results are released. We've also adjusted the timeframe so that Biometric can proceed within 90 days instead of 30 days if needed. However, applicants who have applied overseas and tried to obtain approval on arrival will have to delay their entry at a time when the entry ban has been imposed by the end of June and watch when the entry ban will be lifted again. Some language test centers are not operating for the time being, so they cannot take the test. However, applicants who are waiting for the exam should take advantage of this opportunity to spend more time and effort preparing for the language test so that they can get higher language test scores. In view of the above government's policy, Canada has confirmed many policies and ongoing progress to have minimal impact on applicants, despite many adjustments to the Corona response period. Of course, the existing application may be delayed during this Corona response period, but it does not seem to be enough to worry much because the process has not stopped. With new policies coming out day by day, we'll all have to listen to Canada's Corona response and see what direction it goes.
Canada Announced 2020's Immigration Plan
Earlier this year, the Canadian Immigration Service announced that it would accept an additional 1 million immigrants from 2020 to 2022. The target was 320,000 in 2018 and 341,000 in 2019, and the target for 2020 was set at 341,000 as in 2019. However, it announced that it aims to accommodate an additional 10,000 people each year with a goal of 351,000 in 2021 and 361,000 in 2022. The biggest reason for the announcement is to ease the economic and financial pressure Canada faces due to the aging population and low birth rates. More than 9 million Canadians are expected to retire over the next decade, and a shortage of labor is not expected to be met by the current Canadian population alone. In this situation, it is expected that the government will accept and rely on additional immigrants to maintain the economy and manpower. Fifty-eight percent of the total immigrants to be attracted are planning to continue to attract new immigrants to the Economic Class, including Express Entry, PNP, AIP, and RNIP, and increase the number of immigrants through the Economic Class by more than 10,000 every year. The target number is 19,800 in 2020, 203,050 in 2021, 212,050 in 2022, among them, 67,800 in 2020, 71,300 in 2021, and 73,000 in 2022 announced the goal of accepting new immigrants through PNP. Compared to 2019, we have a goal of receiving an additional 20% or more of the PNP target in 2022, and we have announced that we will receive an additional 5,200 immigrants through the newly announced Agri-Food Imigration Pilot and RNIP. Of the total immigrants, 26 percent announced their goal of attracting 91,000 new immigrants with family-invited immigration, and the remaining 16 percent with refugee immigration. Canada's past, present and future trends suggest that it will continue to be positive for immigrants. Canada has had more than 300,000 immigrants five times since its foundation. That's a very high figure, 0.9 percent of Canada's total population. If you look at neighboring America, it has an average of more than a million immigrants, but the percentage of the population is 0.3 percent lower. The reason why we encourage immigration in Canada is that in Canada, immigration has contributed to the economy steadily as a consumer and taxpayer as well as to the size of Canada's labor force, and we believe that it will continue to have the same effect in the Canada has attracted 2.8 million new immigrants from 2010 to 2019, and aims to welcome an additional 3.5 million new immigrants over the next 10 years. As such, we have set a goal of attracting more and more new immigrants. In recent years, the Canadian Immigration Bureau has compiled a set of announcements, stressing that it continues to encourage Canadian immigration, and it is re-publishing a number of new immigration programs or reorganizing existing immigration methods. If you are preparing to immigrate or if you have an immigration goal in the future, it seems that the next 10 years will be the right time. As there are various immigration methods in Canada, I hope you find the right immigration method for yourself and use it well without missing
Special Measures to Temporary and Permanent Residents and Applicants Affected by Covid-19
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has implemented special measures for applicants from Korea, China and Iran, where the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The special measure was introduced to apply to citizens, permanent residents, visiting visa applicants, applicants for overseas study permits, and applicants for work permits, as well as Canadian citizens and permanent residents abroad, who must enter Canada safely. Visa Office Centres in China have already implemented the special measures on February 7 and South Korea and Iran as well since February 29. According to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, special actions are applied to the following types of applicants: • South Korean, Chinese, Iranian citizens or residents of South Korea, China, and Iran. • Applicants subject to entry-related services or restrictions in Canada due to coronavirus (COVID-19) o visa application centres closures o service disruptions at visa application centres o limited access to local government offices and businesses o limited access to physical examination and biometric system services We will accept applications from applicants who require permission to visit, work or study abroad, and have promised to help them proceed without physical examination or biometrics. If there are insufficient documents at the time of application, you can provide the rest of the documents except the insufficient documents, and specify the documents separately. The insufficient documentation will be available within the next 90 days, which will also apply to biometric systems. The biometric recognition system must proceed within 30 days of request, but the applicant included in the above conditions will be given an additional 90 days to receive biometric recognition. For permanent residency applicants, Express Entry usually requires all documents to be provided within 60 days of receipt of the invitation. However, if you cannot receive the required documents due to the coronavirus outbreak, you can submit the reason why you cannot receive the documents and the documents except the documents you cannot provide. The rest of the documents can then be submitted as soon as they are available. However, this will put the applications on hold until further notice, so submission of documents without delays will prevent you from additional delays in the government decision on you applications. In addition, those who have been granted permanent residency but are unable to do PR Landing before the document expires must explain the situation to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. If explained, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada could postpone the appointment of an interview or the PR landing date. For Canadian citizenship applicants, if they find it difficult to visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada office, the Canadian citizenship test, re-test, interview, hearing, or citizenship pledge, they may re-establish an appointment by explaining the reasons in advance. This special policy regarding Corona, Canada, states that Canada is favorable to foreign nationals regardless of the coronavirus and will continue to issue visitor permits, work permits, study permits as well as newcomers. If it is not easy to enter the country due to Corona or if the document is not easy to obtain, the deadline can be extended. Contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada in advance, if your flight is delayed or the required document is delayed due to the coronavirus.
BC PNP: Changes and Impacts
Any applicants who prepares to immigrate to BC province would have heard of British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program(BC PNP) at least once. BC PNP is one of the immigration methods implemented in BC government for applicants who reside in BC province or prepare to acquire permanent residency in Canada through BC PNP. In the past, BC immigration enabled many applicants to acquire permanent residency because of the advantages of BC PNP. The biggest advantage is that there is no age score unlike Express Entry. Unlike Express Entry, applicants who are over 30 years old and apply for permanent residency will not be penalized for their age scores. In addition, if BC PNP is prepared in small cities due to regional scores, regional bonus points can be obtained, and points based on job and salary can be obtained. These advantages made it easier for older or inarticulate English speakers to acquire permanent residency. However, recent changes to Tech Pilot focus and Guaranteed Invitation Scores have affected BC PNP applicants as well. There have been a total of eight BC PNP selections since the beginning of 2020. Through the eight draws, you might think that the BC PNP score is steadily rising, and it is because of the selection configuration. With the exception of five Tech Pilot selections out of a total of eight draws, there were a total of three BC PNP draws. The general BC PNP draw was announced on January 7, three weeks later on January 28, four weeks later on February 27. As you can see from the draw date above, the selection is being made every three or four weeks, unlike in 2019, when the draw was frequent every two weeks. Also, the number of invitations is 200 to 300, which means the draw score is higher than before. The biggest reason for this is that BC is still focused on 29 Tech Pilot occupations. Tech Pilot is a program created by BC government to benefit permanent residency applicants through 29 occupations listed on Tech Pilot program. The BC government extended the date to June, 2020 because they still have a labor shortage in those field. Tech Pilot has already had five draws this year and has selected 349 people. It accounts for a large portion of the total number of invitations in 2020, nearly 32 % of the 1,096 people. As of February, 221 people out of 551 people were invited through Tech Pilot program. Other changes to the BC PNP are to abolish the Province Guaranteed Invitation Score as of February 19 as the BC PNP draw scores continue to rise up. The Guaranteed Invitation Score was an immigration guarantee program that insured to get an invitation if a certain score was exceeded. Few people applied for permanent residency in this way because it was a program that only few applicants could actually achieve that score. So it doesn't seem to have a direct impact on applicants who were already preparing for BC PNP, but it's still a question of whether BC PNP will create a different system with the abolition of this Guaranteed Invitation Scores. Since 2017, BC PNP scores have been gradually rising. The Canadian government's announcement says they will continue to accommodate more immigrants in the future, and it will also give more support to Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot, Atlantic Immigration Pilot and Agri-Food Immigration Pilot that are being prepared or implemented by the federal government.
