Opportunity: Apply for Canadian Permanent Residency From Nigeria On Your Own
Have you been thinking of travelling abroad in other to hustle harder or find greener pasture?
If yes, I want to tell you it’s a very good idea so far you have it in mind to come back and help develop this country called ‘Nigeria’.
I recently stumbled upon a blog article by Nairametrics and I have decided to share it with you because you will find it beneficial.
The post is on how to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency on your own. That is, you don’t need to go trough any agent before your application get approved.
It’s a do it yourself method. And If you’re interested, keep reading 👇
Step 1a – Take the quiz to find out if you are eligible
The quiz is simple and you can do it by yourself here. If you have not done a language test before, give yourself a hypothetical test score and fill out your other information. I recommend that you give yourself a test score lower than what you think you may get so you can gauge the amount of room you have to play around with.
Step 1b – Find out what your work NOC is
This is important because you can only claim work history in one NOC, which means that if you’ve jumped around from job description to job description, you will need to choose the one that you have the longest number of consistent years of work. It is okay if you’ve changed jobs, but as long as your jobs have all been in one NOC, they count. Find your NOC here.
Step 2 – Register for the language test – IELTS General, etc
Time Required: 2 to 3 months
If you are eligible based on the quiz above, the next step is to register for the language test. Everyone applying for Canadian PR has to take a language test to show proficiency in either French or English.
Step 3 – Prepare your documents for WES evaluation
Cost: from USD230/CAD305/N83,000
Time Required: 2 months
Use the two or three months of IELTS preparation to also prepare your degree evaluation, so you can save time. Everyone who goes to school outside of Canada must go through this process. The Canadian IRCC has a list of certified organisations that can verify your degree and equate it with a Canadian one.
