吸引中国申请人,加拿大将在中国新增5个签证办公室

拟吸引中国申请人留学移民,加拿大在中国增加5个签证办公室(Visa Offices),不是使领馆,是签证处理中心。

飞出国:自由党政府对加拿大移民签证政策要有动作了。G20之前,加拿大移民部长麦家廉表示,他希望在中国增设更多签证办事处能吸引到更多的中国人才来加拿大,尤其是高科技领域的人才,包括那些有经济方面潜力的留学生。

另外,自由党政府有意放宽快速移民通道政策,已开始重新评估外籍用工条例,并于今秋向加拿大下议院提交评估报告。同时,加政府还打算对现行投资移民政策进行调整。

飞出国认为加拿大在中国增加签证申办中心是希望更好地引入更多中国游客、留学生和高技能型人才,鼓励更多中国人去加拿大,刺激加拿大的经济发展。

当前加拿大在中国的签证办公室(签证处理中心)有4个,分别在北京,广州,上海和重庆。加拿大政府计划在成都,济南,沈阳,南京,武汉等5个省会城市增开5个签证处理中心。

签证处理中心主要针对的是临时签证,主要目的是方便申请人递交申请,也算是给加拿大留学,旅游这些做宣传推广吧,核心目的不是帮助解决签证处理速度问题。

对就是移民来说,自由党上台对中国申请人也是好事。自从 2015年加拿大实施 Express Entry 后中国申请人获得 EE 邀请的越来越少,根据截至2016年6月数据,中国技术移民申请人已落后于菲律宾、印度、英国、爱尔兰和美国,排名第6位。而前些年一直在前3名里游荡。飞出国申请人里申请EE的主要以省提名政策为主,申请魁北克和澳洲的都比申请EE的申请人多的多。

加拿大移民的春天是不是不太远了。飞出国将密切关注,为符合条件申请人提供最合适的技术移民途径建议。

Canada wants to open 5 more visa offices in China to attract more skilled Chinese workers and students

Following the tightening of restrictions that has led to fewer Chinese people immigrating to Canada, the Canadian government has decided to open up five new visa offices in hopes of attracting Chinese tourists, skilled workers, and international students.

Currently, Canada has four visa offices in China, one in Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Chongqing. The government plans to open up new centers in Chengdu, Sichuan province; Jinan, Shandong province; Shenyang, Liaoning province; Nanjing, Jiangsu province; and Wuhan, Hubei province.

John McCallum, Canada's Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, met with Chinese officials in Beijing this week to discuss opening the new centers. McCallum also plans to cut down on much of the bureaucratic red tape and streamline the process for valuable workers and students wishing to live in Canada.

"We want to make it easier for them to stay in Canada. So we have the system called Express Entry, in which you have a certain number of points to be accepted as an immigrant," McCallum explained, reports ECNS.

Skilled Chinese workers -- particularly those students fluent in English -- are valued assets for an aging Canadian economy. "Canada is an aging country, so we need new young immigrants to support our economy and help make it grow," McCallum said.

McCallum believes that a new demographic of trained Chinese professionals -- experts in technology sectors -- will give the country the necessary push it needs to innovate and prosper.

"Canada needs to take advantage of a great economic opportunity to capture this market and the opening of more visa application centers throughout China would facilitate travelers seeking to come to Canada," an anonymous government official told CBC.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tasked McCallum with drafting up a three-year immigration plan that will be revealed in further detail this fall.

Hopefully, Chinese officials still aren't sore about Canadian reporters questioning China's human rights record. Otherwise, they might not be receiving a whole lot of that overseas talent...
