What’s the next step to migrate to Canada from Kuwait?

 

The next step is to create your express entry application for the Canadian Government.

 




 

Step Four: It’s time to lodge your Express Entry application. Express Entry is not a ‘visa’ in its own right, it simply allows successful candidates to be filtered out to receive an Invitation to Apply for a Federal Skilled Trades Visa, a Federal Skilled Worker Visa or a Provincial Nomination Visa. An Invitation to Apply (ITA) can be best described as approval in principle of your visa, allowing you to migrate to Canada from Kuwait.

 

Step Five: With an ITA in hand, it’s time to complete the final complicated stages of the Canada Visa process. Once your Canada visa is granted you’re all set to make the move to Canada from Kuwait. You don’t need to move immediately (though most do) and you have 12 months to activate your Canadian Permanent Residency Visas once they are granted.

 

How long does it take to Immigrate to Canada from Kuwait?

 

It takes 6-18 months to receive a Canadian Visa decision. An application may remain in Express Entry for 12 months and it usually takes a few months to gather all the requirements at home in Kuwait to lodge the initial application.
