I and my spouse both are 44, 46 years old respectively. So we won’t get any points for our age. I am in QA but have not been working for some time now. Spouse has 18 years of experience in Java. Working as Sr. Application Engineer in Electricity domain. He has done B.E (Electrical) in 1996. I have done B.Sc. and 2 year diploma in computers from NIIT. I have work experience over 10 years but not working since the last 2 years. We are in US since 2006 but no extra points for US work experience.
IELTS scores are 6/6.5 in writing and rest other between 7.5-8.0. No education or work experience in Canada, no masters degree elsewhere. No relatives in Canada.
We do not have enough points as you can see.
My question is mostly around work permit, if we get lucky enough to secure a job offer from Canadian employer, will that get us enough points to apply for PR?
If we do get job offer from Canada, should we become eligible immdiately for applying PR or is there a wait period for 1 year and then apply for PR?
Second question is about Study visa. If I get study visa, my husband will be able to apply for job based on open work permit through my study visa. So once he gets job will he will be eligible to apply for PR now? Or are there any limitations on this route that we will take?
Please advice. Thank you in advance for reading my question and helping us.
