The Educational Credentials Assessment (ECA) of western countries is very different from that of India. WES or World Education Services, a designated provider for IRCC since 2013, helps international students to assess their degrees, diplomas, or certificates as per the Canadian System of Education. WES will provide you with a report that will help you claim points related to education. In simpler terms, they help you assess your Indian degree in the form of the Canadian Credit system

WES helps 45000+ international students every year to assess their education allocates in Canadian format

WES is not only used by Canada but is also required in the United States of America, the UK, and even Australia. ECA is required in all these countries.  

WES is a very trusted source as it refers to UGC, govt entities, and AICTE as a source of accreditation

What are the benefits of WES?

WES evaluation is one of the most important “steps” if you are considering immigrating to Canada or the USA for a postgraduate degree.

If you have attained an undergraduate-level education from a country outside of the USA or Canada, you will require an ECA or Educational Credential Assessment. WES is one of the organizations that provide these facilities by converting the credits of an undergraduate program from an Indian University into the USA or Canadian credit system. This makes the selection process much easier and helps check the credibility of the program the foreign student has done.

The universities approved by WES are as follows.

But WES doesn’t support every Indian Universities. Many Indian Universities are in fact blacklisted. No credential valuation will be done by WES for these Universities. It should be noted that there are many other bodies like WES that do ECAs as well. It is also not necessary that if WES doesn’t approve of a university then the others won’t as well. The others, in fact, might allow the ECAs for the WES blacklisted Universities or institutions. And as you would expect the cost for different ECA organizations will vary as well.

16-year education rule USA

Many universities and colleges in the USA and Canada require 16 years of total education for a person to be eligible for a master’s degree. These 16 years are divided into 12 years of school, middle, school, and senior secondary education, while the remaining 4 are for the undergraduate degree/program. You must have a 4-year bachelor’s degree or equivalent or a total of 4 years of undergraduate education (3-year degree plus 1-year diploma). Although some institutions do not require a 4-year undergraduate-level education, all the major institutes and the top-rated universities will ask for 4 years or equivalent degrees. 


Many universities and colleges in India do not provide year bachelor programs, hence WES assessment is required for the students with 3-year degrees to check whether their 3-year degree holds the same credit evaluation as compared to a similar 4-year degree in the USA. Hence, WES evaluation becomes a necessity to check whether

Blacklisted Universities by WES

But WES doesn’t support every Indian Universities/College. Many Indian Universities are blacklisted. No credential valuation will be done by WES for these Universities. All the universities mentioned above are WES-approved universities. Others are blacklisted.

But worry not as many other bodies like WES do ECAs as well. It is also not necessary that if WES doesn’t approve of a university then the others won’t as well. The others might allow the ECAs for the WES blacklisted Universities or institutions. And as you would expect the cost for different ECA organizations will vary as well. 

Is WES evaluation Necessary?

As stated above, it is very important in Canada and the USA. WES will convert your bachelor’s program’s credits into US or Canadian Credit system which will help assess your profile in American or Canadian education terms. It is of utmost importance to check whether you are eligible for a program or university/college or not.

Is a WES transcript necessary?

It is mandatory in many US and Canadian Universities.

How to apply for Wes Canada?

Step 1: Create a Wes Account.

Step 2: Apply and note the reference number as it will be very important in the next steps.

To get a US visa, you need to book an appointment with the US consulate or the US embassy. The waiting time for these appointments is generally very high. To avoid any further delays in the queue time for the public the US consulates limit the number of times someone can use the visa appointment fee for scheduling or changing appointments.

And this is where the main question arises. Is this time gap specific? Is it actually that long in queue time? How do we even reschedule the appointment and what are the fees for the same? 

We’ll talk about all these topics and even more in this article. If you wish to learn more about the US visa application or you want to apply for one, you can contact us at b-imm.com

Reasons for rescheduling or changing appointment?

How many times can I reschedule my US visa appointment?

The reasons for the rescheduling depend from person to person. But for some reason, if you miss your interview with the US consulate or you miss your biometrics appointment at Visa Application Centre or even both, you can reschedule the interview date and time.

How can you reschedule your interview?

To reschedule a visa appointment. One must follow the following steps:

  1. Create an account at http://bit.ly/visa-account. If you already have one, move to 2.
  2. Login to your account.
  3. On the left side of the dashboard, you will see an option for New Appointment or schedule an appointment. 
  4. Follow the mentioned steps: Immigrant Visa> Continue> Reschedule Immigrant Visa Appointment> Continue.
  5. Then fill out the details they are asking for very carefully and press Continue. 
  6. Choose a date and time on the calendar and click Schedule the appointment. If no dates are available, please try again after some time. 
  7. Then print the Appointment Confirmation Page. 

How many times can I change my US visa appointment?

In India, you can reschedule your visa appointment a total of 5 times. This includes the initial appointment, meaning, you can reschedule your interview a total of 4 times after the initial appointment. The number can vary from person to person. For some, it can even be 2 or 3. The reason for the same is that the US consulates sites do not provide a single number for rescheduling limit but says that you can only do it for limited times.  

The non-immigrant visas can only be rescheduled 3 times, failure of attending the 3rd rescheduled appointment will result in a 90 days penalty. Meaning, you can apply for a change/ reschedule after 90 days

If the US Consulate or Embassy cancels the appointment for whatever reason it may be, they will waive the scheduling chance for the cancellation. This means they will not add up the total rescheduling count. 

If you use all your rescheduling tries, your MRV fee receipt through which you scheduled the appointment will be counted nill and you will be asked to pay the fee again for a new appointment.

Singapore is a tiny island nation in SouthEast Asia. It is known to be one of the cleanest countries in the world. The country is known for its incredible skylines, greenery, strict laws, and always welcoming people. Tourism is always on the rise as the temperatures are extremely favourable. 

If you need a visa to travel to this beautiful nation or even want to renew your passport, you must take care of their “photo” or “picture”. To be exact there are many specifications when it comes to photo requirements like size, colour, image size, etc. This is done to ensure there are no discrepancies upon tourists’ arrival in Singapore or even to check someone’s identity.

What are the Visa photo size requirements?

Size (Dimensions) should be 45mm by 35mm and the Image Size cannot be bigger than 150kB.

Are there any Background regulations?

It is very important to note that the background should be white and white only. No other colour is considered valid. Lighting is very important and is the most common cause of rejection. Be sure there are no shadows on the face, the photo is neither overexposed nor underexposed and a reflection from a flash isn’t present.

How old can the photo be?

The photo should have been taken within the last three months.

What should be the colour of the photo?

The colours should be very clear. It should represent the actual colour of one’s skin. 

There are no regulations for facial expressions. You should be visible with your eyes open and a neutral expression only. If you wear glasses, they should be put on in a normal way only. It should be made sure that there is no red-eye in the photo. A new photo is needed if you have a red eye as no editing is allowed on the photos.

What should be the dress code while appearing for a Singapore Visa passport photograph?

There are no restrictions on the same as well but it would be preferable if you wear business formal with a clean beard trim or no beard at all.

How many photos do you need for the application?

A total of 2 photos are required for the application.

Are there any Visa Photo Requirements for Babies/Newborns/Kids?

If you are taking your newborn or your kid with you to Singapore or are applying for their passports, you must make sure that their photos must comply with the following:

  1. No toys or pacifiers are allowed. Not even bottles. If you are holding the infant, your hands must not be visible. 
  2. The photo should not be blurred, make sure that the baby is calm and has their eyes open.
  3. Make sure there is no red-eye in the photo.
  4. A white sheet is preferred in the background if the infant is lying down on the bed or a seat. 

As you can see that there are quite a few regulations when it comes to Singapore visa and passport photographs. To make your visa applications smoother, contact us at B-imm.com

In late 2022, the New Brunswick government announced a new pilot program to tackle labor shortages in its areas of manufacturing, fisheries, etc. This is an Employer specific pilot in which 6 employers were chosen to fill in the labor gaps in the province. It aims at permanently retaining the employees by providing them a permanent residency. 

All 6 employers will benefit a lot from it as all the critical labor shortages and gaps.

The partnered six employers are as follows:

  1. Cooke Aquaculture Inc.
  2. Groupe Savoie Inc.
  3. Groupe Westco
  4. Imperial Manufacturing
  5. J.D. Irving Ltd.
  6. McCain Foods

All the employers were selected after their great participation in retaining people through New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program. These employers have requisite settlement services for new economic immigrants along with training programs for language proficiency and skill development and enhancement

In line with this vision, the six businesses listed above must ensure that (in support of new immigrant settlement) they:

  1. Have robust settlement plans for housing, and transportation, to best support the successful establishment of candidates in their new jobs and communities, with a strong commitment to long-term retention;
  2. Have comprehensive human resources planning for recruiting and hiring skilled international talent, and for on-the-job skills enhancement;
  3. Provide up to 200 hours of language training, as required, to candidates; and
  4. Offer guidance and support to candidates who may wish to pursue their Canadian secondary education equivalency.

This 5-year pilot program will be evaluated every year to solve immigrant needs. This also shows that there is a high chance that other Canadian provinces will also launch these programs. Canadian Immigration is only going to rise. If you wish to learn more about Canadian Immigration, contact us at b-imm.com. Our professionals will guide you the right way and help you secure Canadian Permits or a direct PR.

Who is eligible for the New Brunswick Pilot Critical Worker Program?

Being an “EMPLOYER” driven program, the recruitment of skilled candidates is pretty much targeted. The applications to the pilot are made by the Participating Employers. 

Employers do keep many things in mind to make sure the employee they are recruiting is incredibly skilled and is the best fit for New Brunswick. These include extensive past experience in a similar field. The program will not accept any applications from “interested candidates”.

What is the New Brunswick Pilot Program for International students?

The New Brunswick Pilot Program for International Students or the New Brunswick Private Career College Graduate Pilot is for, as the name suggests, international graduates from Atlantic Business College, Eastern College, McKenzie College, or Oulton College. The students must have studied in one of the 19 targeted occupations. 

Like the other pilots, the objective of this pilot is to provide an immigration pathway to the graduates of the above-mentioned colleges having a 1-2 year or more degree in the listed targeted occupation domains. The main focus is put on student retention to help the skill shortages in the area. 

The targeted occupation domains majorly prefer students from Education and social development, health, IT, cyber security, business administration, logistics, etc. sectors. 

What is Canada's New Pilot Program 2023?

Well to keep the economy of the country running smoothly and to majorly cover up all the skill shortages all across the nation, Canada supports a high number of immigrants every year. To achieve the numbers that Canada is achieving, the country must have several immigration pathways to welcome people from different domains, ages, skills, and whatnot

As expected, Canada is probably of the best-run nations in the world thanks to its incredibly smooth immigration policies. Don’t get me wrong, the process is a tab bit time taking, but the process is very streamlined due to the introduction of various pathways. 

Just like the other programs, Canada has released various Pilot programs. Pilot Programs are limited-term programs formed mainly to cater to needs and shortages in specific Canadian Territories. 

The 4 primary Pilot Programs introduced by the Canadian Immigration Authorities are

1. AIP: Atlantic Immigration Pilot 

The program majorly aims at filling up skill shortages by providing permanent residency to foreign skilled workers and international graduates in the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. 

2. Agri-food Pilot

As the name suggests, it is associated with the Agri-food sector of Canada. It also provides permanent residency to skilled, non-season workers who have substantial experience in the agri-food and related industries. It is supposed to end this year in May.

3. Giver Pilot

It is a replacement for  Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots. It provides Permanent residency to people who have expertise in caregiving and caring for children.

4. Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP)

This is one of the most famous Pilots along with AIP. It was made up by the Canadian Immigration Authorities by teaming up with small communities in the rural areas of Canada, known as the Participating Communities. It provides permanent residency to interested skilled workers and international graduates who are ready to live in one of the participating communities.

If you are a foreigner or an overseas worker wish to work in Canada’s ever-booming job market, you would require a work permit. The work permit enables you to work and stay in Canada till the time it expires. Here we’ll talk about how Canadian Work Permit can benefit you and your family, the types of work permits, the application process and requirements, and most importantly how you can take your dependents to Canada as well. If you wish to learn more on the same topic visit B-imm.com.

One can obtain a work permit through 2 programs, namely, the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and International Mobility Program (IMP). If you get a positive LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment), you can get a work permit under the TFWP. IMP on the other hand does not require a positive LMIA. 

Now you must be wondering, why would one want to work in Canada? Our answer for the same is, why not?

Why work in Canada?

Getting Access to Canadian Citizenship:

The Canadian passport is one of the most valuable passports in the world. It gives you access to many different nations without a visa. You can also enjoy the Canadian citizen perks with that as well. It is easy to secure Canadian Citizenship as they are incredibly immigration friendly. Once you get your PR, you can apply for Citizenship halfway through. Once you get the PR and eventually Citizenship, you’ll also be eligible for Canadian retirement benefits. 

Employee benefits:

Unlike third-world countries, the labor laws in Canada are very strict. You can enjoy 40 hours work week and get paid more than what you get in India. Canadian Employers also have to keep the minimum wage guidelines in mind. This ensures that you’ll get the same treatment as other Canadian workers. The average pay for a person in Canada is 50000-60000 CAD with 4 weeks of paid leaves. 

Relaxed Immigration Policies:

Even though the filing and documentation process is complex and confusing, the Canadian Immigration policies, as stated above, are incredibly friendly. If you’re a skilled worker, chances are you’ll receive your work permit in no time. This will also help you get a high paid job. The PR process for skilled workers is straightforward too. 

Booming Job Market:

Some jobs that are paid the bare minimum in India are high in demand in Canada. Jobs like the following are considered low profile in India, but they earn there as much as a good-paying Indian Job.

  • Engineering Project Manager

Types of Canadian Work Permits

There were two ways to secure a Canadian work permit through two different programs, there are many different kinds of work permits. 

How to Apply for a Canadian Work Permit?

Now that we know all the types of work visas available to us along with the benefits and perks of Canadian Visas in general, we can proceed to the application part. 

There are numerous ways to apply for a Canadian Work Permit, as, there are many pathways a person can choose. The eligibility and the documents are generally the same though. 

Eligibility Requirements

These requirements are more of a proof, a statement, or guidelines that one must adhere to once they step foot on Canadian soil. 

  1. The intent of leaving, or the proof of the fact that you will leave Canada once your work permit expires and are not coming to the country for permanent immigration.
  2. You need to show proof that you have enough funds available to sustain in Canada.
  3. You must be in good health and undergo a medical examination.
  4. You must show that you are not a threat to Canadian society. 
  5. You must meet all the other eligibility criteria like language skills, biometrics, and insurance. 
  6. And most importantly, you will abide by the guidelines and restrictions mentioned on the work permit. 

Documents Required

This is one of the most important things when it comes to Candian Work Permits. The documents are highly specific, meaning the format or requirements of the documents are very specific. All the needed documents are listed below:

  1. Proof of identity (Passport with travel history) and 2 photographs
  2. Proof of employment in Canada (the Offer of employment number, copy of LMIA and copy of employment contract, proof of eligibility for the job)
  3. Proof of Relationship with the accompanying members of the family
  4. Background documentation
  5. Completed application & consulate fees*

*Fee can vary depending on the type of work permit you apply for.


There are 4 major steps when it comes to the main application process. 

Step 1: Gather the Documents

All the important needed documents are listed above. Make sure that the documents are updated and new. It is important to check the validity of the documents, especially your passport. It must be valid for your entire stay and must not expire in between. 

Step 2: Fill Out the Forms

  1. Application For Work Permit Made Outside of Canada (IMM 1295) (PDF, 465.84KB)
  2. Document Checklist (IMM 5488) (PDF, 316.89KB)
  3. Family Information (IMM 5645 or IMM 5707)
  4. Statutory Declaration of Common-law Union (IMM 5409) (PDF, 636.51KB), if it applies to you
  5. Use of a Representative (IMM 5476) (PDF, 648.31KB), if it applies to you
  6. Authority to release personal information to a designated individual (IMM 5475) (PDF, 593.57KB), if it applies to you

These are all the necessary forms that one must be filled out with correct and accurate information. Any discrepancy or false information can result in many problems, hence the forms should be filled out very carefully and accurately. 

Step 3: Application Fee Payment

With the necessary documents being submitted and all the forms filled out, the next step is to pay the application fee and biometrics fee. There may be three separate fees to pay:

an application processing fee, an open work permit holder fee, and a biometric fee.

Fees for all the people accompanying the person are also to be paid in this step only. 

Step 4: Submit the application

All the things are sorted, and you are ready to submit the application. The Canadian Authorities will reach back to you if some things are not met or if something is missing. You must submit a change in information query if the same happens after you submit your application. According to the current scenario, you can expect an answer (if your occupation has a higher value in the NOC list) within 8 months of application. 

Dependent Visa and Details

The best part about the Canadian work permit is that the government allows the work permit-issued person to bring their dependents to the country as well. You can bring your spouse and/or children to Canadian Territories if you have a job offer from a Canadian Employer along with an open work permit. 

Your children will be eligible to study in Canadian Institutions as they’ll receive a study permit meanwhile your spouse can also apply for an open work permit to work in Canada as well. 

Dependents as a term comprise of the following:

  1. Spouse, spousal or common-law partners over the age of 16

CRS or Comprehensive Ranking System Tool is a ranking tool used in Canada by IRCC to calculate the eligibility points of a candidate for a Canadian Permanent Residency. CRS are points given out of 1200 (max) to the candidates. Then a cut-off score is released for the CRS, equivalent to or high than which will result in candidates receiving an Invitation to Apply. The more your points, the more the chance of you receiving an ITA. 

The CRS system must not be confused with the point system through which one’s eligibility for Express entry is calculated. If one scores 67 out of the 100 points, the person is considered eligible for PR via Express Entry. After which the person needs to score well on the CRS scale. 

Let’s now access the factors that affect one’s CRS score. We’ll also talk about the maximum number of points one can score and how different scenarios will result in different CRS points. The maximum score will always be 1200. 

Factors affecting CRS points/scores in Canada

  • Core Human Captial Factors(A) AND Spouse Factors(B): 

These are the basic human capital factors and spouse/common-law factors. Here things like age, education level, official language proficiency (both English and french), and Canadian working experience are taken into consideration. One can score a maximum of 500 points through this factor.

It should be noted that points are given based on scores in each section of the language proficiency test. (reading, writing, listening, speaking). 

These are the scores allocated to the people on the basis of different ages, education levels, etc. 

  • Skills transferability(C):

This includes all the skills and experiences that will be transferred to the Canadian Labour force as the person gains PR. One can score a maximum of 100 points through this.

There are many different factors in the skills transferability which result in different points and combinations.

  • Additional Factors(D):

These are the extra factors that can influence the score by a margin. Factors like arranged employment, close relatives living within the Canadian borders, provincial nomination, and post-secondary education in Canada. The maximum score can be 600.

With all the factors understood, let’s look at the maximum points in total that one can score to get a better idea of the CRS score system.

In the education levels and work experience, the number after the “+” sign means that those scores are allocated for the spouse’s level of education.

The spouse can score a maximum of 20 points (5 in each section) in the first language proficiency. (CLB 4 or less, 0 points; CLB 5 or 6, 1 point; CLB 7 or 8, 3 points; CLB 9 or more, 5 points)

As we can see that the perfect candidate here would be between the ages of 20-29 with the educational qualifications of a master’s degree or higher with 3 or more years of work experience. This will take the scores of the candidate above average without even adding skill transferability and any additional points. The other two will then be added and put you in a very good position of receiving an ITA. Through this, you can also see where you are lacking exactly and what is your position. Scoring a provincial nomination will put you in a sure-shot position for receiving an ITA, while arranged employment will boost your chances.

Express Entry is an immigration option/stream for Canadian Permanent Residency applicants. The express entry includes 3 broad programs to invite people for a Canadian Permanent Residency. These programs are Canadian Experience Class, Federal skilled workers, and federal skill trades. You must be eligible for one of the above-mentioned programs.

Through this system, a draw is conducted through which the eligible candidates from the “candidate pool” are invited based on the cut-off CRS score by the IRCC to apply for a PR. This invitation is called ITA or Invitation to Apply, receiving which the candidate must complete the online submission for PR within 60 days. 

The cut-offs for the CRS score, which decides which candidate will be in the “candidate pool”, are different for every draw.

The whole Express Entry process is online, where you have to first check if you qualify for express entry or not. If qualified, your CRS score will be calculated. If your CRS score is equivalent to or more than the cut-off, you will be given the ITA based on your rank.  The CRS scores can vary depending on the different pathways and schemes but generally good CRS score is 490 or above. 

Latest draw results for 2023

In 2023, the IRCC conducted three express entry draws. 5500 people were given ITAs in each draw conducted on January 11th and January 18th. The latest one was on February 2nd. 3300 people were invited to the February draw.

Draw score:

The draw score for the one conducted on January 11th was 507. For the other one, the cut-off score was 490. The February draw had a cut-off of 489

Next draw expected date:

Two draws are conducted every month within 2 weeks of each other. The expected date for the next draw is February 15th.

Australia is on the rise, it is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. This can be traced to the fact of how much of this rise in the economy is contributed by foreigners. The recent immigration friendliness of Australia has attracted brilliant minds to its borders for work and study purposes and its high standard of living made many of whom stay in the country permanently. This accumulated in a larger and more efficient labor force and hence an even faster-growing economy. 

The great thing about all this is that they don’t plan on putting the gear down anytime soon. Australia is planning on inviting hundreds of thousands of immigrants to its borders, especially those who want to study in its prestigious organizations.

The best of whom we have collected for you to make sure you go to the university/college you are best fit for. No matter what stream you were in your high school or 11-12th standard or +2, the wide variety of undergraduate, post-graduate, pathway programs, and diplomas in Australian higher education institutions provide are mind-boggling.

But worry not as the criteria for the proof is very mild and easy to accomplish. Immigrant students have multiple options to choose from in the form of English Language Proficiency Tests. The tests and their minimum requirements are listed below. 

  1. IELTS

International English Language Testing System is one of the most widely accepted English Language tests in the world. The test centers are available all around the globe and are conducted by British Council, IDP Education, and Cambridge English Assessment.

It has 3 sections namely, speaking and writing, reading, and listening, and is 2 hours and 15 minutes long. It is the recommended test for Australian Institutions as it is very widely known and accessible. 

The minimum score required to get admission into an Australian institution is a minimum of 50 in 

each section. 

  1. TOEFL

The test of English as a Foreign Language is the oldest of all the english language proficiency tests. It is not as widely accepted as IELTS but is equal in terms of difficulty. The test is conducted by Education Testing Service. TOEFL iBT is around 3-3.5 hours long and is divided into 4 sections, namely, listening, speaking, writing, and reading.

The minimum requirement to get admission into an Australian institution is 46 but 12 in listening, 13 in reading, 21 in writing, and 18 in speaking are preferred. 

There are multiple options when it comes to english tests, it’s up to the person appearing for them. PTE is recommended for people wanting Australian or New Zealand institutions. But IELTS is equally accepted.

Can students work during their studies in Australia?

Yes, if you won a student visa (subclass 500), you are eligible for working 40 hours every two weeks on-campus or off-campus. Australia is known for having one of the highest wage rate systems as well. But there are a few restrictions

  1. The course you are enrolled in must be at least 2 years long
  2. You can only work 40 hours every two weeks but are eligible to work unlimited hours during the holiday breaks.
  3. You can only start working once your study program at the university/college starts.

What are the accommodation options available in Australia?

Whether you immigrate to a metropolitan city or a town or even the countryside, you won’t phase an accommodation problem in Australia. Immigrants will have multiple options to choose from and decide according to their budget and needs.

  1. Student Share Room

It is a shared room taken up by generally 2 or 3 students. It is a great option for those who have some budget restrictions as the rent gets split every week. The room has basic amenities like a washing machine, dryer, cleaner, TV, microwave, etc. You need to look for the internet and other luxuries yourself only, which in turn will also get split between the roommates. 

The average rent per week is 140-190AUD per person.

  1. Homestay

Homestay or PG (Paid Guest) as widely known in India, is another great option for people who are looking for accommodations with meals or cooking included. It is a costly option as compared to the shared room but includes every amenity that a shared room provided.

It will cost an average of 260AUD per week per person.

2. Hostels

It is a great place for people who have just arrived in Australia and are looking for accommodation. People also consider it for the medium term till they start doing a job or get financially stable. 

A hostel room rent per week is 195-260AUD per person


3. Student Apartments

These can be university-provided accommodations near the campus area designed for housing multiple students (hundreds). The rent varies from place to place. It is a relatively safe place and provides a lot of freedom to the students. 

  1. On-Campus housing

Many students can opt for university/college-provided housing in the campus areas. It is the safest option and has relatively less freedom than an off-campus apartment. There can be restrictions on the entry and exit timings due to it being on campus. The rent is different for different institutions.

2. Hotel/BnB

These are great options for a short-term stay for those who just arrived in Australia and are looking for accommodation options for the long term in and around the city. People often use this method when coming to Australia. The rent/cost depends on the hotel/BnB you book.

3, Renting a room in a share house

A sharehouse is a house with multiple rooms, which provides a great advantage to those who are looking for sharing rent with a room/housemate. People often share rooms within the sharehouse to make it even cheaper for them. It helps in cutting costs a lot.


4. Renting a house to share with other flatmates

This is a rather expensive yet very free and private way to live. You can rent a house and then look for people to share rent with. You can find people on the internet through apps or people in your university or job. 

There are multiple ways through which you can live in Australia. It insanely depends on the financial freedom and budget restrictions you have. If you wish to know more about the accommodation costs, please check out our website or give us a message on our Instagram.

Ireland has recently gained a lot of popularity in the immigration sector. This is because of its booming and changing economy. The country is now developing into a more industrial and service frontier. The low tax rates and higher pay are allowing people to dream of Ireland as their preferred destination for Ireland. Be it, students or workers, Ireland is opening up its regulations to let more people into its territory for economic and cultural growth, which in turn is also resulting in a higher standard of living and subsequently an ever-increasing happiness index of the EU member.

Is Ireland hard to Immigrate to?

Ireland, these days, is put in the same league or pedestal as Australia or the UK when it comes to immigration. Ireland is an EU member and hence is considered very immigration friendly for both the students looking for higher education and for the people looking for work in the Emerald Isle. 

People looking for higher studies need to qualify for the basic requirements to get admission to incredible and world-renowned Irish Universities and colleges. It is also becoming a great alternative for people who do not qualify for British Universities. You need to have a 55-60% minimum in your high school results if you wish to immigrate there for graduation and above 60% in graduation if you’re looking for post-graduation opportunities. You also need to provide a minimum of 6.5 bands in IELTS (minimum of 6.0 in every section), or equivalent in other language tests. One can expect a reply for the same in the time frame of 8 weeks. 

Indians who want to work in Ireland have to secure a work permit/visa because of EU regulations. You can apply for a two-year work permit for 1000 EUR. You also need to fulfill many requirements in order to acquire a work permit. If you work in a lab, healthcare, or IT, you are eligible for Critical Skills Employment Permit which allows the visa process to be a lot shorter and the person can expect a positive response as well. This is due to the shortages Ireland is facing in these professions. 

Where do most immigrants to Ireland come from?

Ireland is becoming a preferred destination for many EU and Non-EU member nation’s residents. Around 12.9% of the Irish population comprises immigrants. This number sums up to a total of 645000 immigrants. 

People from all around the globe contribute to this number, the most prominent of those are immigrants from the United Kingdom, Poland, Lithuania, and many other eastern-European nations. Australia, the USA, and Canada account for high numbers as well when it comes to non-EU nations. 

According to a census in 2021, the total number of Indians in the Irish borders is close to 21000 making it one of the top contributors to the immigrant population of Ireland from Asia. 

Is Ireland a good place to live for immigrants?

For the people considering Ireland as a preferred destination for immigration, it is great news that the Irish economy is on the rise and is projected to only go up in the near future. This means more job opportunities and there will be a possibility that the country will allow more people in and provide them with Permanent Residency and eventually citizenship if they qualify. 

Ireland is considered one of the most immigration-friendly countries in the world along with Australia, the UK, Canada, and the USA. The country has an insanely welcoming nature and is very open to different cultures because of being a part of the EU. This makes the country an ethnically diverse nation and a place for mental as well as financial growth. 

The universities of the country accept people who switch streams and you can even immigrate to Ireland, if requirements are fulfilled, without a job there. Though this will make finding a job very difficult. 

The cost of living, although, is relatively high in the country. Even the rental prices reach sky-high. The income tax also takes a big cut but provides you with a lot of facilities like free healthcare facilities and whatnot. But if you want to live not so much of a high-standard life, but instead a basic lifestyle with all the amenities you need, Ireland will easily work for you. The pay rate in the country allows financial freedom to the working class and even to the students working part-time. Students often pay their own tuition fees for the subsequent years, without any or minimum parental support,  while sustaining themselves in the country. 

Is it worth migrating to Ireland?

With Ireland becoming a booming economy, in the near future, Ireland will become one of the best nations to live in the world. Job opportunities are already skyrocketing, especially for the sciences sector and IT sectors. Other than that, Irish education, for those who are interested in higher education from Ireland, the country boasts a collection of world-renowned universities and colleges. It is best known for its management and sciences courses. 

As mentioned above, Ireland is becoming a major powerhouse in the economic sector, hence it will result in them inviting more immigrants to keep up with the workforce that will be required for subsequent growth. This will result in positive outcomes for more PR applicants, and them converting into citizens eventually. 

Free healthcare facilities are also available to PR holders in the country. The country boasts an overall high standard of living and an opportunity to travel to the rest of Europe. People generally travel to the UK for work and even enjoy their vacations in mainland Europe exploring countries like the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, France, etc. 

Which is better Ireland or Canada?

When it comes to overall immigration facilities, higher education institutions, job opportunities, pathways for immigration, and overall friendliness for non-native english speaking nations like India, Pakistan, and China, Canada is much better. 

Ireland is very friendly when it comes to student immigration but lacks in the PR and citizenship department as of now, which will probably change in the future. Even in that sector, Canada beats Ireland as the Canadian workforce relies a lot on foreign workers working within Canada which is the reason for the sudden growth of the North American Giant. 

Canada offers various pathways for immigrants through which they can swiftly apply for immigration and can complete the process very easily, especially for countries like India and China, Canada offers Student Direct Stream which streamlines the visa application process for foreign students enrolled in Canada. 

Along with that, permanent residency and citizenship opportunities are way higher in Canada due to its low population with regard to its workforce needs and the country’s size. 

Both Canada and Ireland are regarded as one the best countries to immigrate to, but due to Canada being in this field for a long and introducing multiple programs for people, Canada takes a giant lead in immigration numbers and friendliness. 

Is it easy for Indians to get PR in Ireland?

Ireland is one of the many countries that grant PR to Indians or Indian passport holders. The process is not easy nor is it difficult. In the end, it depends on how long you have been working there and what you have been working in. There are many ways through with you can apply for PR in Ireland as an Indian. 

  1. Critical Skill Employment Permit: This allows the person who has a job offer from an Irish employer for at least 2 years with remuneration of at least 30000EUR/yr. The worker must possess a skill that is in demand in the Irish Labor Market. 
  2. Family: If your spouse or a family member is living in Ireland, you can travel with them to Ireland with or without a visa (depending on whether they have PR or citizenship respectively).
  3. Student: You can also acquire permanent residency in Ireland through student route. no The student is allowed to live in the country if they are in an authorized college and covered health insurance with proof of funds for sustainability in the country. If they find a job after their studies, they can apply for a work permit and after 2-3 years at maximum, they can apply for permanent residency. This is the most prominent way.
