9th express entry draw 2018

Express entry invitations record broken with the lowest CRS score for End of the Year 2018

Express Entry Latest Draw 19th Dec 18

With the latest draw held on December 19, where Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issues a total of 3,900 invitations which breaks the record of the total number of invitations sent in a single year.

Previous record was set at last year 2017, with a total number of invitations issued 86,023 ITAs but with the year 2018 IRCC has set a new record of invitations issued to 89,800 ITAs. Target that was set by the Canadian government for express entry invitations was 74,900 ITAs but it exceeded their expectations and the invitations issued this year was 6,500 more than the fixed target.

Candidate with the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 439 and more were given the invitations in the latest express entry draws. This marks the lowest score for the year 2018 where the previous lowest score was at 440 CRS. The main reason for this drop in the CRS score was because of the time interval between the express draws. Mainly they occur with the interval of two weeks but this latest draw was held within single week duration. This much time means fewer candidates have an opportunity to enter their profile in express pool. With the combination with large draw size, this means that the minimum CRS score requirement would decrease.

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) used its tie-break rule in the latest draw. Time stamp used by IRCC for the latest draw was February 6, 2018 at 19:31:37 UTC. This means the candidates who have submitted their profile before February 6, 2018 19:31:37 UTC and has minimum score of 439 CRS were given the invitation in the latest express draws.

Now, Federal government’s express entry program manages the candidates who have submitted their profile under the following categories:

Candidates who are eligible are given a score in CRS. Based on their scores their profiles are ranked in the express pool. Candidates who have a higher rank in the CRS are then given the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for a permanent residence visa to the IRCC. Once the candidate is given an ITA they have a time period of 60 days to apply for a permanent residence visa to the IRCC.
