Immigrating From Kuwait to Canada

Learn the various pathways of immigration to Canada, including family-sponsorship and employment.

Interested in Immigrating to Canada from Kuwait?

As of 2011, about 2,240 Canadians claimed Kuwaiti ancestry, the majority speaking Arabic, English, and French. Formal diplomatic relations between Canada and Kuwait date back to 1965, and the two countries share a common interest in peace and security, humanitarian affairs, as well as trade and investment. Each of these factors plays a role in the strong foundation of their bilateral relationship. Many Kuwaitis in Canada are students who have chosen to study in Canada in pursuit of higher education, while others have immigrated for employment opportunities or to join family members.

Immigration Process

Individuals who plan to migrate to Canada from Kuwait may do so through a variety of pathways. The two most common means of becoming a Canadian permanent resident are employment and family sponsorship.

Working in Canada

Skilled workers coming to Canada from Kuwait may be eligible to apply for permanent residency through the Express Entry program. Within Express Entry are the following subcategories: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class, and the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). An individual may also choose to migrate as an investor or entrepreneur. Hiring an immigration lawyer may be helpful in determining which program is best for each individual.

Family Sponsorship

Individuals who hope to receive Canadian permanent residency may also be eligible to do so through the sponsorship of a family member. If you have a parent, grandparent, child, or spouse who is a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you may be eligible to migrate under their sponsorship. Speak to an immigration lawyer to learn more about family-class sponsorship, and if you are eligible to apply.
