Canada, as you may be aware of, is one of the nations that offer easier and flexible immigration rules. However, one of the issues for the prospective immigrants would be the rules that change quite often. What are the latest updates as long as the immigration conditions to Canada? If you are wondering about the possible changes and updates, here is a complete information on the recent updates to Canadian immigration.

Canada, 30 September 2018 -- What are the latest updates about Canada's immigration conditions?
Well, there have been a few new updates to the immigration rules if you have been considering opting for Canada immigration. The year 2018 has been witness to a few changes in tune with the global changes. We will check out a few changes.

#1 Biometrics

If you are a foreign national in Canada and you come from Europe, Africa and the Middle East, you will need to provide your biometrics. They would be essential enough if you are opting for any category among Canadian Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), Work Permit, Study Permit, Permanent Residence, or Temporary Resident Permit (TRP).

With effect from 31st December 2018, the conditions will be applied for the nationals from Asia, Asia Pacific, and the Americas as well. The Canadian government states that the biometrics have been made compulsory for establishing the identity of foreign nationals and safeguard the health, safety, and security of the Canadian nationals.

#2 Express Entry

There have been a few changes in the Express entry program as well. The minimum CRS – comprehensive ranking so far had been around 440, but it has now climbed up too 456. Even the deadline or time frame for submitting an application for permanent residence has also been reduced to 60 days. The time frame so far had been 90 days from the date of qualifying through the express entry draw.

#3 Medical Inadmissibility

If you are well aware of the Canadian immigration rules, you would be aware that persons diagnosed with certain medical conditions were not allowed to apply for permanent residence in Canada. This was done with a view to protecting the interests of the public funded health care services in Canada.

However, IRCC has recently changed the rules and now allows the people with medical conditions. Except in the cases where the person would have excessive demand on Canadian healthcare and social services, the guidelines have now been relaxed. For exact conditions stipulated, you can get in touch with a good Canada immigration service.

#4 Impaired Driving

This can be quite significant for the permanent residents of Canada. If you are convicted of impaired driving in Canada or abroad, you will stand to lose your permanent residence status. What's more, there will not an option for appeal.

The bill to this effect will come into existence on 31st December 2018. The restrictions are applicable to the Canadian permanent residents and foreign nationals alike.

The Parting Thoughts

Well, those were a few updates during the year 2018 so far. We would expect a host of new updates in the following months. If you want to stay updated with the developments in the Canadian immigration, keep in touch with your favoured immigration assistance service.
