Express Entry FAQ

Express Entry

The length of the process varies from person to person, but it can be broken down into the following stages:

Prepare and submit Express Entry profile –Takes several weeks to several months

Before you can create your Express Entry profile, you need the right documents. This includes language tests and will likely include education documents. This process can take anywhere from several weeks to several months.

Receive Invitation to Apply (ITA) – This could take days, weeks, months, or it could never happen

Once you create and submit your profile to the Express Entry pool, it will be considered in all Express Entry draws for the next 12 months (or until you receive an ITA). If your CRS score is high, you could receive an ITA within a few days in the next draw. However, if your CRS score is low, you may not receive an ITA.

ITA Received – Up to 60 days

If you receive an Invitation to Apply then you have 60 days to complete and submit your final application for permanent resident status.

Application Processing – Most applications processed in less than six months

Once your application is submitted, it needs to be processed. IRCC states that 80% of applications submitted through Express Entry are processed in less than six months. If your application is approved, you are issued documents allowing you to activate your permanent resident status in Canada.
