Express Entry Eligibility Online tool

Express Entry eligibility online tool is an easy-to-use tool, which helps the candidates to immigrate and helps to apply for the language tests to take, and the scores to fill, provide work experience and the domain they worked on.

Assuming the applicant is eligible for one of the three federal programs that use Express Entry, the website will then advise them on the following steps.

After filling in all the details and getting everything right with the eligibility, the website provides the applicant with a personal reference code valid for a couple of months. The personal reference code the applicant received is used only for a person's profile, which is needed when the applicant is applying for online immigration.

The Federal Government suggests that the personal reference code is used only to restore the applicant's information. In contrast, Ottawa instructs the applicants to print the steps that are required to move further in the application process. The international newcomers must log in and submit their online profiles to the Express Entry system.
