Good day everyone,
So my wife and I are 36 years old and before we gave our IELTS our score was around 420. However post giving our IELTS our score is now 441.
While this was going on we started exploring immigration via ICT route and retained the services of a lawyer in Toronto.
Now we own and operate a cosmetic manufacturing unit in India and in the ICT can show that we will be doing the same in Canada and as we have been successfully running it for 6 years we have enough experience to show. Our ICT lawyer is very confident of getting the same approved. Post that we will immigrate and then after 12 months of operating it successfully can apply for PR.
OR and here comes the issue.
We can apply for PNP with 441 score and NOC 0016 and hope that a province nominates us and move with PR.
My questions are:
- Which do you recommend?
- Timeline for PNP is longer than the ones for ICT (3-4 months from today since we have been working on it for sometime)
- In ICT we have a closed work permit and then after 12 months apply for PR and then wait for that to happen, whereas in PNP its straight shot to PR.
- Can we move there via ICT and let PNP happen in the background, and if we do get it, switch over to PNP whilst being physically in Canada?
I know this is way too much information but do share your thoughts.
