How to Immigrate to Canada as a Hotel Manager
The first stage in your Canadian immigration process is to calculate your Canada Immigration points for Express Entry using the Canadian Comprehensive Ranking System.
As well as providing you with important CRS points these for Hotel Managers also count towards your overall Immigration Points score which must equal or exceed a total of 67.
The answer is a resounding yes, providing you have a reasonable total CRS score on your Express Entry application and can meet the 67 immigration point threshold for your Canada Federal Skilled Worker Visa.
Technically there is no minimum CRS score required to submit a Hotel Manager Canada Express Entry profile.
Of course, securing a job offer (documented in the right way for immigration purposes i.e. LMT) will give you an instant CRS boost of 200 points so it makes sense to start this process as soon as is practical.
Occupations on the Canada NOC list can be classed as being ‘in demand’ and the Hotel Manager code 0632 has been firmly established on the list for many years with lots of opportunities right across the country.
