Hello, its MURPHY.
We actually experienced a lot of difficult situations we didn’t expect, so we felt hopeless at first. But we cannot always blame Corona.
There are people who want to immigrate to Canada,
so we are going to share how things changed in the past 6 months about Canada immigration and Corona.
On March, Corona started to spread everywhere and Canada forbid foreigners to enter.
Then Canada-America boarders were closed, and this caused difficult situation with visa.
There were not a lot of visa offer until July.
But the thing is that compared to visa, permanent residence was keeping its record high.
There were big cases of CEC(Canadian Experience Class) applicants.
Also, a lot of people found out that the category of Express Entry CEC’s (Canadian Experience Class) boarder was very low at the time,
so most of them seized this opportunity.
A lot of less people were planning to study abroad on September,2020. It was almost zero.
Even most of the international students in and out of Canada are in the same situation; stopped or postponed.
A lot of Colleges even canceled the whole major on May semester
or announced not opening the major that was supposed to be opened on Septmeber,2020.
And students from this class had to go through some difficulties due to this problem.
Even if the classes were opened, most of them were processed through online,
so students who think online is inefficient, had no choice but to delay or postpone it.
Also, eTA application and evolution started from July and they had to go through enter confirmation,
but there were few cases of short-term stay visa families entering together.
But the thing is even if you have eTA, without specific reason, it’s not so easy to get in.
So, we have to get ready for any challenges.
We also recommend some ways such as requesting for pre-entry apply letter beforehand from the immigration and try to enter.
We guess people who are planning to start from this year September would be most stressful.
Canada student visa is divided into two phases.
There is 1st stage approval letter that includes “Starting with online outside Canada “content
and 2nd stage approval letter which is based on physical examination and biometrics results later on.
From last 14. Aug, the 1st stage approval letter was issued to some of the student visa applicants.
But this letter is just for studies, not getting approval for entering.
So, there are few people who are getting ready to be on board or still waiting for 1st stage approval letter.
If you don’t have English score, you might not be able to enter January classes on 2021.
So you must check the qualifications and availability.
Meanwhile, People who are thinking of September semester classes on 2021 might be thinking of how to spend a year.
If you are looking forward to offline courses, we recommend ELL program from Soongsil Univ.
which is provided from Centennial College for Korean students who want to study Canada ESL program from September this year.
Of course, people who already have English score,
need to apply for school and plan their dates beforehand for securing seats on September,
2021 due to postponed students on 2020.
The results are processed through examination regularly for government immigration which leads to permanent residence.
For ON state, the competition is very high even though they are regularly processing selection, due to guerilla opening through categories.
While Express Entry selection was processed, FSW(Federal Skilled Worker) as known as professional personnel category was also selected.
And this was great news for people who were preparing EE outside of Canada.
But the score was extremely high, and this made people think “is this even possible?!”.
There is the only federal program called FST(Federal Skilled Trades).
This is not selected too often but its selected with low points.
So, people who were already selected previously with 415 points were a bit disappointed with this fact.
Normal FST(Federal Skilled Trades) are selected with 300 points approximately.
It was a challengeable category even if you have age and point limits,
whereas others are only able to apply if you have an experience in a certain field.
This was selected once a year.
The high score is a bit hard to get, but it’s a relief that even with Corona situation, immigration is still on its way.
They all have same reason; they want to be with each other when it’s a dangerous situation.
So, we understand those people who wants to hurry with this procedure.
There are often people who gives us calls in Canada,
and there are also some others who wants to process again after they got confirmed by MURPHY. (A LOT of time to prepare for documents ….T.T)
There are also people who were thinking of children abroad, but then changed to self-immigration due to Corona situation.
Actually, for self-immigration, the procedure is 1-2 years.
So, if you use this wisely with Corona situation,
this might be a better plan for getting permeant residence after Corona finishes.
So, in this period, most of the Canadian immigrants are stopped
and immigration applicants including self-immigration applicants are also looking for a good time to process,
so it can be a good way to be active and move on quickly at this point.
There are few people who think that criminal record only includes heavy crime,
but it also includes drink and drive or car accidents.
Most of them get caught for these two reasons.
And pardon results procedure takes a year or more than this,
so getting ready for pardon while applying for study visa can be a damage for studies and departing preparation.
So, there are more cases of getting the pardon results first in Corona situation and then considering Canadian visa residence.
Except for the procedure during entry to Canada and in the boarder,
Visa and permanent resident examination is still processing, so you need to get ready for this as well.
Immigrant visa is going UP, non-immigrant visa is going DOWN.
I heard that others had this, then do I have a problem? Am I the bad case?
If you think like this, don’t be too devastated, it’s not just you, its everyone.
So, everyone keep their works and have high hopes!
MURPHY will always be with everyone, Thank you.
