How to apply for PR Visa for Canada from New Zealand?

Getting a permanent residence visa is the major goal for all the immigrants. A PR visa allows the immigrants to live and work anywhere in the country for the duration of five years. Canada government has the following immigration program to allow them to apply for permanent residence visa:

Express Entry Program: It is the fastest way to get a permanent residence visa. Usually an ideal case takes around 6 to 8 months to get their application processed. It is a point-based system. Immigrants need to create an express profile and submit all their credentials. Based on these credentials like age, language proficiency, work experience, adaptability etc. points are awarded to their profile. Based on these points express profile are ranked in Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Higher ranked profiles are then given an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for permanent residence visa to Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Provincial Nomination Program (PNP): Every province has their own provincial nomination program to nominate the highly skilled and capable immigrants to live and work in the province. Via this program provinces are able to fill the labour gap in the market. Depending on the demand in the local provincial market, every provincial nomination program has different requirement and eligibility criteria. Once an immigrant is able to land a provincial nomination, they are awarded with 600 CRS points.

How IEC Helps the Immigrant from New Zealand to move to Canada?

Canada has launched a program that allows them to issue fixed number of work permits to the countries that are in agreement with them. International Experience Canada (IEC) allows the country to invite the youth in the age group of 18 to 35 years of age to work on a temporary basis. There are three sub-categories under IEC program:

  • Working Holiday
  • Young Professionals
  • International Co-op

In case of immigrants from New Zealand, they are allowed to apply under Working Holiday. Working holiday allows the immigrants to get an open work permit that is valid for the duration of one or two year. Immigrants who:

  • Do not have a job offer
  • Want to work for more than one employer in Canada
  • Want to work in more than one location
  • Want to earn some extra money so they can travel
  • Can apply for working holiday visa. This visa allows them to gather the required work experience of working in Canada in order to apply for permanent residence (PR) visa.
