Migrate to Canada From Saudi Arabia In 2020

Study Permit: If you are aiming to study in a Canadian institution, then you can apply for this visa.
The Canadian Study visa helps you to get an education from top universities by providing enough proof of funds to reside and tuition fees.

The joy and benefits of living abroad are indeed different than what you experience in India. But, with such heavy taxes, how can you enjoy an international living? Well, Canada is your answer. 

With the new expat tax for dependents levied on employed professionals, we have seen many Indian families disheartened return to India.

Why the Canada PR visa?

  • Canada’s permanent residency is one of the most commonly applied visas in Canada. This visa comes with a validity of 5 years and can be applied by skilled professionals after scoring 67 points.
  • The amazing aspect of this visa is unlike the Saudi work permit that demands you a job offer. There is no condition as such in applying for this visa.
  • Moreover, as Canada’s oil imports from Saudi Arabia, the countries share good trade relations with each other. According to Wikipedia, Saudi Arabia represents Canada’s second-largest trading partner in the Middle East.
  • Hence, candidates who possess work experience from Saudi are often regarded as assets to the Canadian economy.
  • In a decade, the country has recorded a large number of immigrants heading to Canada to enjoy the benefits the Maple Country has in store.

What are the benefits of Canada Immigration from Saudi Arabia?

No racial discrimination

Canada promotes diversity and gives equal respect to all religions. No matter which nationality you represent of what religion you follow, the country lets you dwell in peace, without any discrimination.

Family benefits

Living in Saudi Arabia for decades can only help you earn more income but with no benefits for the family. If you migrate to Canada from Saudi Arabia, along with you, your family can also enjoy several benefits:

  1. Free education for kids up to adulthood
  2. Free healthcare for the entire family
  3. Right to sponsor parents or grandparents after you settle

No restriction of employment

It is close to impossible for a skilled professional without a job to live in Saudi Arabia.

  • When a family wants to stay in SA for the long term, it cannot do until the primary applicant is employed. Also, if the spouse wants to work, a separate work visa is required.
  • In Canada, you can enjoy permanent residency even without a job.
  • The spouse also gets the right to work full-time in any company.
  • You can switch between jobs and change companies as per your desire.

Quick Citizenship

A significant benefit of Canadian immigration is the route it creates for Canadian citizenship. No matter how long you may have been living in Saudi Arabia, there is no scope for citizenship.

  • Even if you have a kid born in SA, he does not get natural citizenship of SA until the father is an Arabian.
  • Migrating to Canada can get your Canadian citizenship only in 3 years. Your child born during your phase of permanent residency, is given the status of natural citizenship.
  • Besides these benefits, you are given protection under Canadian laws, allowed to sponsor eligible relatives, and enjoy rights similar to Canadian citizens. To understand everything about what Canada can offer you, check out the benefits right away.
