The Express Entry (EE) process is a three stage immigration process for an applicant who is interested in lodging Residence application to Canada for himself and family members:  

•    The first step for an applicant is to complete all the requirements and proceed with Expression of Interest (EOI) lodgment which is done online.  

•    The second step is when the applicant is selected by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) after he is assessed and has the pass mark points to be invited from the pool and is invited to lodge his Residence application with all supporting documents in order.

•    The third step will be when the applicant is found eligible under the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) and is given 60 days’ time to lodge the family application with all supporting documents in order towards obtaining Residence visa.
