People emigrate for various reasons such as nice quality of life, better employment opportunities, and superior educational facilities for children, orderly polity or quieter environs depending on their individual preferences.

In fact, there are many other reasons which make people relocate, but the above-mentioned ones are the most common. To cater to this mass, a lot of immigrant consultants have sprung up all over India. Global Gateways provides end-to-end Immigration Services which go beyond Visa Services. They look for a place which might be right up your alley based on your work skills, experience, lifestyle, and approach towards life and so on. In order to provide that, they scout for an employment for their client there, provide hassle-free immigration and freeze on suitable accommodation.

Now, let us look at the most popular destinations that Indians want to emigrate to. Indians, owing to the colonial legacy of the British, prefer to relocate to English-speaking countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, among others. Some people who have a flair for languages like German, French, and Spanish may head to Germany France, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, and Spain and so on.

Of course, most choose to land up in the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries as these are not only prosperous countries but are more peaceful and accommodating towards migrants.

A thumb rule to be followed when selecting the proper company which provides wholesome Immigrant Services requires you to research on it yourself. People may suggest names offhand, but you have to make the choice because it would be one of the most life-changing missions you will be embarking upon. To check its credentials, go to the company yourself and check if it has good infrastructure, proper practices in place and professional staff. In addition, get enough information on its standing in the market and its client testimonials. Also ensure that it has been serving clientele for a while, for there are fly-by-night operators who open shops to make a quick buck and run away.

After you have made up your mind, you have to get down to the more complex part- applying for a visa. This is a more time-consuming process, which requires you to enormous patience as you have to get all your documents in place. They will include your relevant identity cards, current passport which would be valid for well into your future, college/university certificates, certificates proving that you have not been charged by law for having been hauled up by police, health certificate, letters of experience from your previous employers, your bank account details to prove that you can subsist in the foreign country you are heading to even if you have quit a job or have been laid off and so on.

Alberta Immigration Nominee Program

Alberta Immigration Nominee Program

Alberta is one of Canada’s most economically and socially dynamic provinces.

Located in Western Canada, Alberta has a rapidly growing economy based in large part on its vast natural resources. Home to two of Canada’s largest cities, Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta is the most populous of the country’s three ‘Prairie provinces’. It is also renowned as one of the most beautiful parts of North America, with famous national parks such as Banff and Jasper.

The Alberta Immigration Nominee Program is Alberta’s Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province may receive an Alberta Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will speed up the overall immigration process.

The Alberta Immigration Nominee Program consists of three main immigration streams:

  • Strategic Recruitment Stream
  • Employer-Driven Stream
  • Self-Employed Farmer Stream

This stream allows individuals to apply to the AINP without employer support. It consists of three different categories:

This stream consists of three sub-categories:

Skilled Worker Category – For individuals with a permanent, full-time job offer in an eligible skilled occupation. Individuals are not required to be working in Alberta at the time of application.
