With the current state of affairs in the US, a lot of people are actually moving from the US to Canada and also from Kenya to Canada.
As always the most important thing to remember is the country you intend to move to always has a right to deny you a visa even when you do everything they ask you to do.
Your chances of being able to move depend on your qualifications academically, field of study and also your grasp of English. People in the health care field like Nurses and doctors usually are a priority and have an easier time getting immigrant visas.
The other common visa to Canada is the student Visa. For this you need to have funds available to pay for your school before you start the process of applying.
The first step is usually to determine if you even qualify for a visa before you spend any money applying for it.
We will start looking at the most common path used by professionals, which is the skilled Immigrant ( Express Way). The system is a point system which means you have to earn points based on pre-determined criteria by the government. They set a number of criteria and you earn points for every criteria that you meet. Then when you get the minimum required points you are put in a pool with other applicants from all over the world. If you happen to be among the top people (most points) then you get an invitation to apply for permanent residency.
Tomorrow we will do a detailed look at the criteria for Skilled worker program and the points you need to earn to qualify.
