Frequently ask
What is the minimum CRS score requirement to receive invitation to apply for Canadian PR?

The IRCC releases a fresh cut off for CRS points on every express entry draw. It is necessary to have a score close to 460 mark to be close to the cut-off list. As per the Express Entry draw in January 2020, the minimum score for CRS was 473 points.

What are the major factors affecting the CRS cut offs in the Express Entry draw?

There are several factors that affect the CRS cut-off in Express Entry draw. The minimum score points come down if the number of candidates in the Express Entry draw is high. Also, if there is a long gap in two consecutive draws, the score cut-off will ultimately go higher than expected.

Can I still apply for Canadian PR, if I my Express Entry score is low?

Yes, in case you haven’t received the invitation for Canadian PR due to low CRS score, you can still apply through the Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). Almost every province has their own market labour needs for which they require skilled and talented foreign nationals to work and settle in that province. It is considered as one of the best ways to raise your CRS points.

How can I earn extra points for educational qualification?

Enhancing your educational qualification can help in securing extra points in the CRS score. For example, instead of holding a graduate degree, you can get a Master’s or Doctoral degree to earn better points.

What are the other factors that can help in securing extra points?

There are many factors that help in securing extra points in Express Entry pool such as sibling living in Canada, permanent / full-time job offer from a Canadian employer, language proficiency and work experience. These factors add more value to your Express Entry profile and help in securing more points in CRS score.
