Status update on my express entry process

Updated: Apr 4, 2020

I already posted about my first step which was IELTS. I started my WES Evaluation process along with IELTS preparation.

📌WES profile created in November'2018 (end).

📌After that I applied to my universities. One University (KU) took one month to process and Other (DU) took around 15 days. After getting my transcripts , I posted them from respective Universities' post office.

I was done with this by mid Jan .. and all my docs reached there by 27th Jan .

➡️I got my WES Report on Feb. 26 ,2019 and on 1st March , I got the hard copy of WES REPORT as well.

📌I paid for courier service of WES which costs CAD 85 so total amount was CAD 285 Approx. Tracking was available.

Important things I learnt during this process:

⚠️Don't unnecessarily delay your process. Send transcripts from University's post office only, if you want smooth processing of ECA.

⚠️Don't forget to send your degrees in a separate envelope. ( I completely forgot this 😋🙈 and was relaxing after sending transcripts- this led to one week delay)

⚠️ You can create Express entry profile even without waiting for hard copy of ECA REPORT. Write ECA report no. as the one in soft copy report. It's fine. IRCC gets your report directly from WES. Just your report reference no. is required. It's on top right side of report. You can clarify this further from somebody else.

After clearing IELTS with the desired score and getting ECA from WES done, the next step was to create an express entry profile.

I got ITA- Invitation to apply (in the very next draw) after 3-4 days of creation of profile. Gathering documents and uploading the same as per the specifications mentioned on the CIC website is a task in itself. After uploading all documents, I got AOR (Acknowledgement) of document submission and payment of fees (CAD)

My timeline:

IELTS: 5th Jan 2019 (result came on 18th Jan 2019)

WES Evaluation: 26th Feb 2019

Profile submission: March 2019

PPR: June 25, 2019
