What documents do I need?
For the PR process, they require identity, qualification, experience, and proof of income, taxation, settlement funds, English language and other documents. The documentation differs from country to country and specific documentation might be required in few cases at various stages. In addition, few countries require Police Clearance Certificates and applicants may have to undergo health examinations as well.
How much funding balance should I show?
Normally it depends upon the country where you want to migrate and the visa type you are applying, for a few countries it is not a mandatory requirement to show the settlement funds. There are many countries which have it as a mandatory requirement as they basically want to know whether the applicant is aware of the cost of living and have sufficient funds to survive in the new country without depending upon the Government. This is again a basic requirement for a few countries where the visa type is specific to the state or region or the visa is being sponsored by the state or region.
What other information does my migration application ask for?
Basic demographic information, in addition to its information relating to qualifications, experience, English language scores, any other country residence information, dependents information, any relatives or friends information staying in the new country, health and character information.
Can I apply from inside the country I want to migrate to for my PR or must I be abroad?
Earlier there used to be a condition that once the PR is granted the applicant(s) need to move out of the country & reenter. However now this has been relaxed by most of the countries, they are simply making the changes to the visa type and applicant(s) can remain in the new country as per the PR guidelines.
Do I need to deposit my passport with the embassy?
Countries like Australia don’t need the passport to be deposited with the embassy. However few countries it is a mandatory requirement, it depends upon the country which you want to migrate and visa type you are applying.
Is there a visa interview? What kinds of questions are asked?
It completely depends upon the visa type you are applying and the country you want to migrate, few countries it is a mandatory requirement to attend an interview as a part of the process. Normally they want to know the purpose for migration or visit and whether the intentions of the applicant are genuine, they check whether the applicant is meeting the requirements, also whether he/she will be able to survive in the migrating country without any sort of assistance.
What are the costs?
Costs will depend upon the country you are applying & the visa type; normally there will be a visa fee in the migrating country’s currency, an applicant will have bear the other costs like migration agent fee, notary charges, courier charges, English language test charges, nomination & other authorities fee, in few instances like Parent Migration they might ask for security deposits as a part of assurance of support.
How long does it take to migrate?
Normally countries like Australia or Canada take 8-12 months or more, it differs from country to country. As per our experience in most of the cases, the duration of the process depends upon the way an applicant has planned his/her migration and willing to bank proactively on the favorable conditions, like how well the applicant is preparing in advance the documentation and other aspects of the process for the next stages. Again it differs from case to case basis & the type of the visa. We need to also understand that the applicant will not have any control on the timelines of the various authorities, however, he/she can definitely control the time consumption in filing the applications from his/her side.
Who all from my family can I take with me if I hold a PR visa?
Normally many countries allow spouse & children to be included as a part of the PR visa. Few countries might allow parents of the main applicant as well. After migrating on a PR many countries allow the PR holder to sponsor the close relatives who are eligible to migrate, take parents.
Can I work anywhere in my new country once I get my PR?
This again depends upon the type of the visa an applicant is planning to migrate; few types of visas though they are PR visas will restrict the applicant to work; study and live only in a specified state or region initially may be 2-3 years. Normally many countries have PR visas which allow an applicant to live across the country.
Can I study anywhere in my new country once I get my PR?
This depends upon the type of the visa under which an applicant is planning to migrate; few types of visas though they are PR visas will restrict the applicant to work, study and live only in a specified state or region for some initial duration like 2-3 years. Normally many countries have PR visas which allow an applicant to study across the country.
Can my spouse also work?
Many countries are issuing the same type of visa to all the dependents included in the PR application, if they get the same visa then automatically it will allow the spouse to enjoy the same rights which are applicable for the main applicant. This applicant needs to check before he/she starts the process.
Will I still retain my Indian passport?
Countries like the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Italy etc. allow dual citizenship, wherein you can be a citizen of 2 or more countries. In case of countries like India, Singapore, Austria, Saudi Arabia etc. their constitution doesn’t allow dual citizenship, you cannot get Indian Passport or voting rights if you are a citizen of any other country. However, if an applicant wants to be only on a PR in the migrating country can continue his/her citizenship with India.
Can I take my pets with me?
Countries like Australia, Canada, and the UK etc. allow bringing pets at an extra cost. The pets should have been vaccinated; few countries will not allow directly being imported, they need to be parked for few days or months in defined countries, after meeting the standards they will allow the pets into the migrating country’s quarantines for testing, subsequently, the pets are reunited with the owners.
Is there a medical test?
Many countries have made it mandatory to have a medical examination done before issuing the PR visa. Normally as a part of the examination process, they check if the applicant is free from the contagious diseases, he/she is possessing good health condition and don’t need assistance or will not depend upon the society or government or will not depend upon their health care system.
How can I find a job in my new country?
Applicants holding a PR will definitely have an advantage and will be preferred by the employers. There are many international job sites like jobs.y-axis.com where an applicant can post the profiles and get in touch with prospective employers. It is advisable to have a job before entering the new country so that applicants don’t have to face any problems in getting a job in the new country. The applicant can go for job search services provided by various organizations like Y-Axis and others.
If my PR application is approved, when should I arrive in the country?
Generally many countries advice applicants to make the initial entry before the expiry of health & character certificates already submitted as a part of the PR process. For countries like Australia, they specify in the grant the initial entry date before which all the applicants included in the visa should make first entry.
What is a Police Clearance Certificate (PCC)?
Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) is issued to Indian Passport holders when they apply for immigration, residential status, employment, or a long-term visa. People going abroad on a Tourist or Visit visa do not require a PCC.
Which countries have made it mandatory to submit PCC?
You will have to submit a PCC if you intend migrating to the U.S.A., the U.K. or Australia. Do note that you do not need a PCC for a Tourist visa.
Easiest country to migrate from India
The easiest country to migrate from India is Canada owing to its immigration friendly policies. The country’s rapid economic development offers numerous job opportunities and the shortage of skills and lack of manpower to contribute to their development is forcing the government to take in more migrants.
Apart from this, the country offers a better quality of life, social security benefits and free education and health care which make it an attractive option for migrants to settle here with a PR visa.
Canada offers various immigration programs through which you can apply for a PR visa, but each program has its individual eligibility requirements and application procedure. Some popular programs for getting the PR visa are:
- Express Entry Program
- Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
