CRS Score below 400? Find out how to get Canada PR invitation

Are you concerned about your low Express Entry CRS score, which is below 400 points?

Well, you do not need to be dispirited, as you can still get invitation to apply (ITA) for Canada PR from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Canada’s popular immigration program, i.e. Express Entry System allocate the point score to the applicants out of 1200 points. These points an applicant earn based on key factors of his/her profile, i.e. age, education, work experience, Language proficiency, etc.

The IRCC open a draw every 15 days to invite candidates with top CRS core, to apply for permanent residency in Canada.

How to get the ITA with CRS Score below 400 points?

The candidates with high CRS score (i.e. 470 or above, as per current demand) get the Invitation to Apply from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada through any of the express entry draws often held on fortnightly basis.

However, what about the candidates with low CRS score below 400?

Well, such candidates do not need to be disappointed as they can still obtain the permanent residency in Canada. If you are such applicant, all you need to do is apply in an appropriate Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and obtain the provincial nomination for Canada PR.

Get the 600 Extra CRS points through Provincial Nomination

If your CRS point score is less than 400 points and hence, you are not getting the Invitation to apply for Canada PR, you can always apply in a Provincial Nominee Program.

If you apply in a PNP and able to be nominated from the relevant province of Canada, you become eligible to receive 600 additional CRS points in your express entry account.

Needless to mention that this massive addition of points raise your CRS score to such level that Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada is bound to issue Invitation to apply for Canadian PR visa to your profile in the EE system.

The PNPs have relatively easy process requirements, hence, its easy to apply in the provincial programs. Moreover, some PNPs invite the applicants even with relatively low CRS score, i.e. below 400 points and nominate them for the Canada PR visa. For instance, the Alberta Provincial Nominee Program invite the applicants even with CRS point score as low as just 300 points.
