QIIP is a 2-steps process : first step is to get selection by Quebec province, and 2nd step is to go through security and medical check in order to be awarded permanent residence visas for Canada.
- Quebec processing time is about 12 months (or 2-4 month if principal applicants speaks intermediate/advanced French), and the investment of 1.2Mil CAD (or the flexible financing option which is chosen by well over 95% applicants) is required only upon acceptance by Quebec.
- Federal processing times vary from one office to another. Federal government of Canada no longer publishes the specific time frames per visa office, so drop us a line if you want to know specifically for any given country.
** Quebec has recently changed its application form and no longer accepts the old format: ask us for the updated application form**
