Canada’s soft stance on immigration and the easy-going visa process has established it as the immigrant’s paradise over the years. Moreover, after recent incidents in global politics, i.e. ‘Trump Bump’ and ‘Brexit’ made way for Canada to become the most desired country for overseas immigration aspirants in the modern era. The United Arab Emirates has become a key source of immigrants to Canada in the last few years.
The people seeking permanent residency and citizenship in a democratic country with open society find Canada has the just perfect destination. Its proximity to the USA also makes it a popular choice for the people couldn’t make it to the US.
Canada offers two key Pathways to Immigrate to Canada from UAE 2019, i.e.
The first one is the federal point based online immigration program, which is also the fastest way to get permanent residency in Canada from UAE or for that matter from any other country. Let’s find more about the EE system.
It is point based online program, so the applicant needs to create their profile online in the EE system and submit the EOI (Expression of Interest) mentioning the key details of the profile, i.e. age, qualification, work experience, language ability (English or French), etc.
As a skilled worker, you need to score a minimum of 67 points based on the above factors of your profile to get accepted by IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). You also need to calculate your points score on CRS Point calculator to get considered for the invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residency from IRCC. The IRCC later holds a draw periodically to select the top ranking applicants from the express entry pool of candidates. For every EE draw, IRCC announces cut off marks, known as CRS Score requirement for an express entry draw. The applicants, with CRS point score equal to or above the cut off marks, get the Invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residency (PR) from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
The PNPs are the alternate immigration pathway to Express Entry system. Provincial nominee programs belong to different provinces of Canada. If your point score is not high enough to get the ITA from IRCC through federal EE system, you can apply in a PNP. The applicants, who remain successful in PNP process of a particular province, get the nomination for Canadian Permanent residency from that province. The nomination helps increase the point score of the applicant in the EE system and subsequently get the invitation to apply for Canada PR. Every province of Canada has a different process and application intake timing for its PNP. Hence, you can also immigrate to Canada from the UAE through a PNP.
