A common question when discussing immigration options is, how long is this process going to take? Over a decade of experience has given New World Immigration an average timeline in which we can guide you with the process, however, it takes two to tango… Are you pulling your weight?
Considering the skilled migration pathway through express entry, we suggest preparing for a timeline of 14 – 18 months to complete the paperwork. Provincial Nomination Programs relevant to your case can fast forward your timeline, however, stage 1 usually takes 6 – 9 months. Once an Invitation to Apply (ITA) has been received then we have 60 days to submit your permanent residency application. Once your PR application has been submitted, Canada can take approximately 9 months to process your application.
Each visa has different processing times; 189, 190 and 491 visas have different methods of execution, we have averaged a timeline of 16 – 20 months for the visa processing of these visas. Once a skills assessment based on your profession has been correctly completed, stage 2 would be lodging an expression of interest (EOI). An EOI can take 2 weeks dependent on your score, a more realistic timeline to work with is 3 months. Once an invite has been received, we need to lodge a residency application for a 189, 190 or 491 and then once again, the processing time is up to Australia, average 9 months.
An average timeline to expect would be 18 months to get through the basic paperwork in the immigration process. Once the paperwork has been completed you now have the working rights that were stopping you from getting a job before. A year and a half is a long time to wait for a visa to be completed but you don’t have an employer to rely on so there are a lot of consistent variables to secure this process.
