Let me quickly introduce myself and the situation I’m in - IT professional (10+ years of experience - full time continuous employment) with approved I-140 and H1B extension till 2022. Recently, i have received a job offer (have written offer letter) from a Montreal based company. No joining date provided though due to the covid situation but they are working on the Closed Work Permit
8 IELTS score valid till Sept 2020 and i will add +1 year to my age in Aug 2020.
- Can i apply for EE now under FSW?
- Since, Quebec is not part of the EE process, can i select a different province with a job offer from a Montreal based company? (CRS score 458 if I apply now)
- Or is it advisable to come to Montreal and then apply? In this scenario i have to give IELTS again and I will add +1 year to my age and chances are it will lower my CRS score.
- Or I have to wait for 1 year before i can apply for PR?
What would be some of the best case options here? Any advice would be highly appreciated.
