How to immigrate to Canada via Express Entry

If you ever wanted to move to Canada, this is the time. Canada is planning on bringing more than 1 million immigrants in the next 3 years!

Dmitrii Pashtuskii is a digital nomad living in Bali, and he’s planning his Immigration process to Canada via Express Entry.

We recorded a podcast episode and Dimitrii asked us questions about moving to Canada because he wants to apply for a visa very soon:

We thought it would be a great opportunity to share our story and help others. We are also thinking of writing a short guide with more information, documents, and resources we used in our visa process. In case you are interested, you can sign up for the waitlist here.

Something that I forgot to mention in the episode is that getting here with a job will make your adaptation process easier. You will have an extra support group, which is super important when you move to a new city.

Another point is: I don’t recommend paying for a rent deposit before getting here. It’s not that hard to find places available for rent, and there are lots of scams! Once you get here, walk around the neighborhoods you want to live in, call the numbers in the listings to see the place, and bring some money with you to pay as a deposit to close the deal. Note: during summer, the rent market is a bit more competitive.

Make sure to listen to the episode to learn more.
