Eligibility of H-1B Visa Holders to Move to Canada2018-02-05
Do you have a H-1B visa? Do you want to move to Canada?
Express Entry is Canada’s skilled-worker immigration application system, launched in January 2015, to attract high-skilled foreign workers and former international students who want to live in Canada permanently and whose in-demand skills are needed by employers across the country.
Canada Express Entry provides highly skilled H-1B visa holders an opportunity to immigrate to Canada. Canada’s Government has taken steps to fast-track Express Entry applications in less than 6 months. Express Entry is a point based system that evaluates applicants based on criteria including:
- language ability – English and French
- level of education
- skilled work experience
Canada Express Entry System to Apply for Permanent Residency
Canadian employers are searching for high-skilled foreign workers who want to live and work in Canada, and help grow our economy. In November 2017, Canada announced a new 3-year immigration target of 1,000,000 new immigrants for 2018-2020, a nearly 20% increase in the number of candidates granted permanent residence. Many H1-B Visa workers in the United States are considering their options to move to other countries if their work permit is not renewed.
To help you have the best chance to be invited and selected to move to Canada, a Canadian immigration lawyer can help you avoid mistakes and guide you through the application process.
