How to Get Canadian Visa via Express Entry without any Job Offer?

Want to move to Canada, but dont have a job offer from Canadian employer? Well, you can surely make it possible.

You must be wondering as to how it is possible, as the Express Entry- the most popular Canadian Immigration system too, considers weighty Profiles only, i.e. which have the job offers.

You can apply and get success in Express Entry without Job Offer

Most of the applicants think that applying in Express Entry system without job offer is either not possible or it is a waste of time. However, this is just a myth.

A Canadian job offer certainly boosts your profile and makes you eligible to get ITA for Permanent Residency Visa, however, it is also true that you can do away with it and still succeed in Express entry. Lets try to understand the express entry point system first to find out how it is possible.

Express Entry Point system is based on CRS

Express Entry System of Canada Immigration is based on CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The CRS allocates points to each profile out of total 1200. The points are given for each profile factor of an applicant, such as, age, education, work experience, language skills, etc. The IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) chooses the high ranking profiles through its fortnightly draws. Qualifying marks are decided for each draw and candidates achieving or exceeding the qualifying marks become eligible to get ITA for PR visa.

A Canadian Job offer gets you 600 additional points, which makes your ITA (Invitation to apply) for Canadian PR almost certain. However, do you know, what were the qualifying marks in last few draws?

Check the complete list of EE draws in 2016

The minimum qualifying marks registered this year are 453 points and 457 points respectively in the Month of January this year. Moreover, the qualifying marks (CRS Score requirement) remained below 500 points in most of the draws in the year 2016. So what does it indicate? Were all the applicants selected in EE Draws had Canadian Job offer? Well, certainly not. If it was so, then the qualifying marks would have been over 600 points.

You can get ITA via Express Entry without a job offer

It clearly suggests that you can get the Invitation to apply for Visa via Express Entry, even without the job offer from Canadian Employer. So what all you need to do to get selected for visa through express entry? Here are the key things you must do with your profile to obtain a PR invitation from IRCC.

  • Review the Express Entry Points Table

As already discussed you get points for your each profile factor. Hence, keep an eye on the total points you get for your each profile factor so that you can focus on the key factors of your profile.

  • Enhance your profile to secure ITA
