Express Entry

Express Entry is the selection system for Canada migration set by the Canadian government. The system acts based on ranking the immigration profiles in the express entry pool. Every profile is ranked based on the personal factors of the applicant like age, educational qualification, work experience, adaptability, language proficiency, and spouse related factors too!

The higher the CRS score, the more the possibility to migrate to Canada. Now, a few tips are following for you to build the best possible express entry profile.


How to build a good Express Entry profile?

Building a good Express Entry profile is not an overnight process. There are more to-dos to look after from the beginning that strengthens your Express Entry profile. As with any other work, rushing at the last minute will not make any changes instead, focus on increasing your scores from the beginning.

Now let us discuss the tips for increasing your CRS score.


1. Eligibility

Initial eligibility assessment is considered nothing but a formality by many people which is a complete misconception. Use legitimate and accurate information eligibility check.

Also, substantiate the assessment with necessary documents to add weight to your application. Therefore, you could an accurate preliminary assessment. This helps you to analyze the factors by which your CRS score is affected and also you get time to improvise your CRS score if needed.


2. Apply Early

Early bird gets the worm! Your age is one of the prime factors to offer you more CRS points whereas it would also lessen your score if you are too old to apply. 20 to 29 is the correct range of age to apply for the process. If you are crossing 30 then you should speed up your process to ensure your PR acquisition.

Moreover, your express entry profile will be valid for only a year but you can create a new one if the existing expires. Anyhow nothing is going to stop you from maintaining an express entry profile until you are considered minimally eligible to apply for PR.


3. Scale up your Education Level

The higher your education level, the more CRS points you are offered with. Assume an applicant who is a high school passed out is evaluated for CRS. He or she gets 30 points in CRS for education. For the same person with a bachelor’s and master’s degree, 120 and 150 points are offered accordingly.


4. Education Credential Assessment

ECA is a process to evaluate the standard of education in your home country. Canada demands the education level of its applicants to be equivalent to that of Canada’s which is stated by the ECA report.

You get your points based on your ECA report. For instance, if you are a master’s degree holder in your home country but ECA states that you only have a bachelor’s equivalency to that of Canada’s, you will only get the points for bachelor’s level despite completing master’s.  Have a fair play in analyzing all your credentials so that you won’t lose your points.


5. Language Proficiency

Improve your proficiency in English or French, the two official languages of Canada. Language proficiency is definitely going to grant you many points in your CRS.

For a highly competitive profile, meeting the minimum requirement is not enough. So, focus on doing well in the language tests to significantly increase the points. And, it is one of the easiest ways to increase the CRS points.

Be ready with your test results to activate your profile and make sure you get a sufficient score if at all you need to highly competitive.

Add-on tip: Practice the language to obtain perfection! Make it habitual…


6. Spouse’s qualifying factors matter a lot!

If your spouse has a competitive profile to get through the express entry, then making that profile as the primary applicant would increase the possibility of getting an invitation from Canada to apply for PR. If both the applicants are equally qualified, then the chances are doubled to get PR in Canada that you would be invited in the very next draw!
