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.
