English Language Tests
An English Language test is a requirement of almost ALL Canadian immigration programs. The IELTS general Test is required explicitly for the immigration programs. British Council provide these tests in South Africa, and clients need to book and pay for their tests online. PREPARATION IS KEY for this test, as its results play a HUGE role in your eligibility and in your points scoring in the express entry pool. Do not go into this test unprepared.
Education Credential Assessments
An ECA (education credential assessment) or a Trade Certification is a requirement for the Immigration process. This is where you need to have your qualifications assessed in Canada, to ensure they are accepted, and equivalent to Canadian Qualifications. There are may ECA providers, but WES is the most prominent.
One of the most difficult challenges of the immigration process is finding a job before your arrive. Not having the right tools in place to help you put your best foot forward and garner those much needed interviews or job offers, really leaves you behind the trend with the express entry pool growing week by week, meaning more and more people are looking for opportunities in Canada. You have to be better, you have to look better. Roz Fisher from Résumé Etc can get you there.
Booking Biometrics Appointment - South Africa
As part of almost any immigration process, providing biometrics upon request is needed to satisfy visa requirements for Canada. Anyone over the age of 14 is required to provide biometrics. Once provided, biometrics are kept on record for 10 years by IRCC, and will not need to be redone if still within the 10 years since you last provided them.
VFS Global is the only provider authorized to collect Biometric information in South Africa for Canadian visa applications and you need to book your appointment only once you receive a request to provide biometric data.
