Self-Employed Application 2018

Discussion in 'Business Immigration' started by leavingonajetplane2016, Jan 9, 2018.

  1. I'm starting this thread for those who are considering sending in an application under self-employed category in 2018. @BaNana82 has been extremely helpful so far sharing his own process and timelines. I'm currently collating my documents and have the IELTS on Jan 20.

    Once I receive the results, I will be sending my application in. I'm applying under 5121 - authors and writers. Though the current processing time on CIC website says 48 months, I've met several people who received responses within a year or less so don't let the time discourage you as it did me the first time I considered this in 2015.

    You can find occupations that fall under self-employed category here - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=291&top=6.

    Let's all support each other as we proceed on this journey in 2018...:)

  5. a question i like to know the answer is that i have everything , work experience , age and ielts but im not sure about the funds requered for self employed how much we need to show i only have 15000 dollars
  6. The funds for self employed are the same as the funds for every category I believe - https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/become-candidate/eligibility/proof-funds.html. If it's just you, then you should have $12,475.
  7. Hi guys. Please help me to find the link in CIC website that it's mentioned the processing Time for self employed. It's really helpful for me. Thanks
