Australian passport holder wishing to move to Canada

Discussion in 'General - All Canadian Immigration' started by atnsoftdev2020, Jan 15, 2020.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm an Australian citizen and am planning to move to Canada. May I ask is it possible for an Australian passport holder to stay in there without a visa? If so, how long? Also if I wish to apply for Canadian permanent residence, what options do I have? And how long will it take for getting Canadian PR? Thanks.

  2. You need to research the various immigration programs to see if you qualify for immigration

    For the express entry program you need in the region of 460-470 points for example

    Processing time difficukt to predict given every application is unique but could be 6-12 months.

    As an Australian passport holder you would be visa exempt for a visit although you would need an ETA. You could visit for a maximum of 6 months although could be less as determined at the border.
