Express Entry should be an easy process, however with the scores going up and down like a roller coaster and constant changes to the rules, thousands of hopefuls struggle with the process. Having spent around 1000 hours trying to find the answers to my questions in order to correctly fill in the application and secure an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and in the long run, Permanent Residency, I became frustrated. The hundreds of thousands of questions and conflicting answers on many forums does not help the frustration and stress. The only other option is "consultants" that only exists to charge exorbitant amounts of money to help and control of your Express Entry profile. I wrote this guide and templates out of frustration to help everyone else get through the process, with the aim of saving time, money and stress. Because in the end, Express Entry is not without its problems and is also not cheap, every cent should count towards your new beginning in Canada.
