New Deadline for Application Filing Under Express EntryJune 26, 2018
Today, June 26, 2018, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced that, effective immediately, the amount of time Express Entry applicants have to submit an Application for Permanent Residence (post receiving an Invitation to Apply) will change from 90 to 60 days. When Express Entry first came into effect and up until November 2016, applicants also had only 60 days to file.
How does this change affect applicants currently in the Express Entry Pool of Candidates? If you were invited to apply before June 26, 2018, you still have 90 days to complete your Application. If you are invited to apply on or after June 26, 2018 you will have 60 days to complete your application.
IRCC’s rationale for going back to the original timeframe of 60 days to apply is that it reflects the intended design of Express Entry as a process leading to expedited results.Tags: 60 days, 90 days, amendments, Application for Permanent Residence, applications, Canada, canada employment immigration, canada immigration, canada immigration permanent resident, canada immigration skilled worker, canada permanent residency, Canada visa, canadian experience class, canadian immigration, canadian immigration skilled worker, canadian permanent residency, cic, cic canada immigration, Comprehensive Ranking System, CRS, Express Entry, federal, federal application, federal skilled trades, Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, immigration refugees and citizenship canada, invitation, invitation to apply, IRCC, permanent immigration to canada, permanent residence, permanent residence canada, permanent residency, permanent resident, permanent resident immigration
