An Invitation To Apply or ITA, as it is known as abbreviately, is an offer to apply for Permanent Resident Visa to Canada officially forwarded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), at the time when a candidate is in the Express Entry Pool.
It is a selection proclamation issued when IRCC conducts rounds of invitations known as Express Entry Draws.
An ITA shall not be confused with a confirmation of admission of the candidate in Canada as a Permanent Resident. In fact, it is mere ‘invite’ to the candidate with an expiry period of 90 days. If the candidate fails to apply for Permanent Resident (PR) visa within the stipulated time, then the issued ITA shall deemed to be null and void.
Invitation To Apply are only issued to those candidates wo are eligible to become Permanent Residents of the country. To get an ITA, following conditions shall be duly met by the candidate:
IRCC has a systematic criteria of issuing ITAs. Every fortnightly, it conducts Express Entry Draws and issues ITAs to every candidate falling inside the CRS cut-off.
Post receiving Invitation To Apply, a deadline of 90 days would be provided to you for submission of the following documents, online;
There is no formal way of accepting an Invitation To Apply. After being issued, an ITA will allow you a period of 90 days. Within this time frame, the candidate must submit a complete and accurate application along with all the supporting documents.
Complete submission of documents and application kit is itself an acceptance of Invitation To Apply.
Your profile information will reflect up till the completion of 90 days’ of deadline. If no application (along with documents) is submitted within the given time, then ITA issue will be stand cancelled/ expired.
If the expiration took place due to non-submission of application because of some unforeseeable mis-occurring, then you have to re-submit your Express Entry application, with a fresh Express Entry Profile and be accepted in the pool of candidates. Make sure to re-check your NOC listing as well as eligibility requirements for Express Entry.
Though, there is no formal way of accepting an Invitation To Apply, you have a way to decline it. Candidates who elect to decline an Invitation to Apply will be sent back to the Express Entry pool with the same profile, to be considered in future rounds of invitations, provided they still meet the minimum benchmark of criteria of any of the three federal economic immigration programs.
There is, however, no assurance that the candidate will be receiving another Invitation to Apply at a later rounds of invites. Declining an invitation, never the less, is not at all associated with any negative consequence on whether or not candidate will be invited to apply at a future date at some future rounds of invites.
This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
