Hi, I have a question regarding cut-off dates and CRS scores.

So my case in a nutshell-

1. I've created my profile around March 2018, and my score was 376 (IELTS was quite low, I was then CLB 7)
2. I retook IELTS on June 30, 2018, and got a CLB 10. I've updated my express entry profile. My CRS score increased to 441.
3. My EE profile still shows created on March 2018, and expiration is on March 2019.

I wonder what will happen if -

Assuming in the next draw, the CRS cut-off score is 441 and tie-breaking rule date is let's say April 2018. Will my profile be considered? (Again, I've created my profile March 2018, but updated it on July 2018 due to the increase in my IELTS score. In my profile now, I don't see any 'date' reference to my update on July 2018 so I am assuming I will be considered)?

I am excited yet anxious about this, thanks in advance
Yes if you improve scores, your submission date remains unchanged.

Hello,

I have a question for EE profiles from outside Canada. While booking tickets to canada after receiving all approvals, was tickets booked one-way or a return journey will be required
If you have got CoPR then you can book one-way as well. Return is not mandatory.

Guys! I had a few queries.

1. My current CRS is 478 and I have been in the pool since 27th July 2018. By when can I expect to have my profile selected in the draw? I am aware that the next draw will ideally be held on 8th August since last draw was a fortnight ago. Do I get any points after I get an ITA? I didn't find answer to this query anywhere!

2. What is the validity of PPC and medical examination report? Given that fact that one only has 60 days to respond to ITA with documents furnishing, can I apply for PCC and medical examination once I get an ITA?

1. You will get ITA in next draw
2. Get your medical appointment and obtain PCC.

Great! Thanks :) One more thing. I got married in March 2018 and I have also mentioned that I am married. However, I plan to come alone first and then sponsor my wife once I am in Canada. I have still not obtained our marriage certificate. Will that be a problem? I have not misrepresented anywhere. It's just that I do not have the marriage certificate as yet and we're in the process of it but it's taking time.

you need to arrange that first. Why have you not included spouse as 'accompanied?

Because we do not plan to come together to Canada.
Spouse can do soft landing and then can go back. It is not necessary for spouse to be in Canada with you. Spouse after soft landing can come back anytime later, even as later as 2 years. I would suggest to include spouse.

So the plan is this:

Once I get my PR, my spouse will come as a visitor (on a travel visa) with me for 2-3 weeks and then she will leave. In this case would you still strongly recommend getting the marriage certificate?

To prove marriage you need certificate, period!
I am suggesting add her as accompanied, she can land , stay as short as 1 day and go back.

Hi Guys,

I have a general question regarding the documents required to submit for Express Entry. As per my document checklist, cic did not ask me for ielts,birth certificate, nor my work permit.

Im really confused and would appreciate if senior members can provide their opinion on it.

Thank you very much!

Hi! It is very unlikely if you are not asked for ielts. However, it is a must for you as without a valid ielts or french language score, you're not eligible to get an entry into the pool. Make sure you are referring to the right link.
