After the exceptional first half of the year 2017, the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) seemed to have taken a breather in the month of June. As a result, the consistently falling qualifying marks soared up again close to 450 Mark in last couple of express entry draws. However, in last express entry draw, the IRCC yet again provided an indication that it may further reduce the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement.
CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score
A CRS Score is the total scored points of a candidate in the federal express entry system. The express entry system is the federal point based and online immigration system of Canada that allocates ITA (invitation to apply) to the candidates for Canadian permanent residency based on their scored points for key factors, i.e. age, education, language skills, work experience, etc.
IRCC launches express entry draw every fortnight, announcing the cut off score (CRS score requirement). The candidates achieving the announced qualifying marks receive ITA for Canada PR Visa from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
Incredible EE draws this year
The Express Entry draws produce incredible results this year. The qualifying marks decreased to the bottom, while number or invitations for Canada PR touched the sky. Consequently, almost every express entry draw this year created a new record for lowest every qualifying marks as well as highest ever number of invitations from IRCC.
What are the Expectations from next or upcoming draw of Express Entry system?
After reaching the least ever limit, i.e. 413 points, the CRS score requirement, once again reached to 449 in the very next draw (i.e. 16th EE draw launched on June 28, 2017). The draw results amazed the candidates, who were fancying their chances of receiving ITA in the 16th draw.
However, in the 17th draw the IRCC yet again reduced the qualifying marks to 440 points. This again gave the positive hopes to the tens of thousands of immigration applicants registered in express entry, waiting for their ITA. Looking at the number of candidates and their CRS score in the express entry at now, the cut off score from IRCC is expected to remain around 435-440 Mark.

I am overjoyed after getting Australian PR Visa along with my wife with immense help from Visas Avenue (VA) team in a record time of less than 6 months. We certainly recommend Visas Avenue for Visa aspirants. Our sincere thanks to the two extremely talented ladies-M/s Phanjina Narjary and M/s Kirti Chauhan. The entire process was hassle free and well organized. The best part of VA team is their proactive working and transparency. Our case was particularly complicated as I am Indian and my wife hails from Nepal. Initially I did research for at least 3 months about Visa consultants and must have had conversations with at least 20 of them across India and Nepal. After rigorous research of Visa sites and reviews on the internet, VA stood out to be the best choice with immensely informative website, no history of complaints and great reviews from clients. We met Phanjina at VA office Bengaluru. She was the main reason for us to choose Australian immigration after she did our profiling for both Canada and Australia. She was knowledgeable about the criteria for visa application and honest in her guidance. She was prompt in replying to mails and answered all silly queries that we had. After signing the contract, we were assigned to Kirti from VA office in Delhi. She is an admirable person when it comes to being proactive at work. Kirti ensured that all the documents were immaculate and was of extreme help in guiding us for my spouse documents from Nepal. She was clear in instructions and reviewing documents at every phase of our Visa application process. All phone enquiries were attended, all mails were replied and all questions were answered by her. Because of her proactive approach We never had any issues as our documents were sitting ready before the actual requirement for submission. We got our Visa only because Kirti was clear about the entire process and dedicated to do her best for her clients. Best Wishes for VA team in their future endeavorsThank you once again!!!
After having a detailed conversation and evaluating the immigration processes of three leading consultants in the market for both Canada and Australia Permanent Residency, I zeroed down for the Visas Avenue for my Australian PR. The credit mainly goes to the in-depth knowledge of the Visas Avenue, Hyderabad's Branch Manager Jyothsna, and the competitive pricing for the kind of services being promised. Unlike other registered consultants, Visas Avenue did not charge an exorbitant amount for my application process. Jyothsna gave me assurance of assigning an experienced Immigration officer, and handed over my case to Ruchika Sharma, from Delhi office. After having multiple conversations with Ruchika, I am sure that, I couldn't have got more experienced and patient Immigration Officer than her. She was always there at each stage of the process to guide me to arrange and submit the right set of documents and at times explain in detail to few of my silly queries over mails and phones. I have already recommended them to few of my close friends (with the progress of my application, it was not that difficult to convince them). I wish Visas Avenue team the best of luck in future and hope that they will continue doing great quality work and earn a good name for themselves.

It is my immense pleasure to write a review about Visas Avenue. After a lot of market survey, I signed up with Visas Avenue and found them very genuine. They have provided me the best services for Canada immigration. I found their team very knowledgeable and professional. I would like to thank my case manager Shivangi Arora for her great support during my visa journey. I would sum up her services in one word "Brilliant." She has an in depth knowledge of the entire process and answered my every single query patiently irrespective of how stupid it was. Even during the waiting period, she helped me to stay calm and optimistic. I used to get timely follow ups from her, and she made the complete process very smooth for me. From client signup to getting visa stamped, the services provided by Visas Avenue was incredible. I wish I could give them more than five stars. I would strongly recommend Visas Avenue without any reservations to anyone who is looking for immigration services.Kudos and a big thank you to Shivangi Arora and the entire team of Visas Avenue. Keep up the great work.

I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service you provided on my PR application. Your attention to detail, great communication skills, and expert advice on documentation made my experience even better than I expected. Your advice on language of job experience letters, selection of accurate NOC codes was exceptional. During last 12 months, whenever I reached to your team for help on any tiny or large step, my queries got adhered to within stipulated time – this also signifies your immense professionalism. You knew all the procedural steps with immigration authorities really well and because of your tutelage, my visa was granted in about 25 days after filing the application. I won't hesitate to refer my friends to your establishment, and I will especially request visa avenue management that my referrals gets assistance from same team which assisted in my visa application. Visa applicants - if you are looking to settle in a different country - your chances of achieving a visa and future will heavily depend on how knowledgeable and professional your consultant is, in my humble opinion, you can definitely trust Visas Avenue.
The other name of professionalism and efficiency is Visas Avenue. It played a major role in turning my Canada PR dream into a reality. I would particularly like to mention Ankita and my case manager Shivangi for assisting me through the process and helping me keep my nerves in check. Despite never meeting them in person, as I am based in Kolkata, I never felt that distance matters. The entire process and consultations were done via email and phone and there was no scope of any complaint at all. A team of thorough professionals, it knows its job very well. I wish all the best to Visas Avenues and hope it would assist many other dreamers like me in achieving their goals.
I would like to thank Visas Avenue for guiding me in successfully getting my Canadian PR !!!I initially approached Promita Deb from their Bangalore office. She checked my eligibility and gave me an idea about the entire Express Entry process, which actually helped me to make up my mind in applying for PR.My first case manager was Prateek Bhatnagar from their Delhi office. He was very helpful in assisting me to gather the documents in the initial phase.Later on I was assigned to another case manager Geetanjali Bharadwaj to whom I would like to express my sincere gratitude. She is such an expert in the field and resolved all my queries during the course of the ExpressEntry process. She gave regular reminders which actually helped me in submitting my application on time and eventually getting my PR much earlier than i expected. She was very professional and easy to liaise with, which made the entire process seamless. Great work team ! I would definitely recommend your services !!
Having spoken to a couple of agents and not being impressed with their responses and constant demand to urgently make a payment to secure their services I was hesitant initially while I got in touch with Visa Avenue.This doubt was cast aside in the first conversation I had with Rajesh, who was open with his communication and did not put any pressure on registering at that moment.When I did make up my mind I was assigned Ruchika Sharma as the case officer. There were constant updates over email and telephone and the seemingly endless process of submitting documents was made hassle free. This was very important when you have a full time job and with Ruchika following up the strict deadlines were met as everyone at Visa Avenue is very clear with the processesThere was always a backup person, who was up to date with my case incase Ruchika was on leave which I felt was one of the best aspects of the service provided.There is also a person touch with their communication.
