SINP- OID Category Increases Processing Time And Application Fee

Posted On: Fri, Dec 27 2019

The province of Saskatchewan has changed its popular Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) Occupation In-demand category PR processing timings from 6 months to 14 months. Due to the increasing number of applications under SINP-OID category the PR processing has been delayed leading to the backlog of visa applications.

Additionally, the application fee for applying Occupation In-Demand Category has also been changed. Applicants applying on or after 1, 2019 will be required to pay the new fee of $350 even if the 60 day application period has not expired.

Expression-of-Interest (EOI) profiles without an Education Credential Assessment will not be selected and ECA is a mandatory document for applying Occupation In-demand category.
