Immigrating From Oman to Canada

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

Interested in Immigrating to Canada from Oman?

Canada and Oman share common goals in regard to international peace, as well as economic and social development. Both countries place high priority on education, and each year the Government of Oman offers scholarships to its citizens to study in Canada. If you are an Omani citizen planning to immigrate to Canada, the nearest regional Embassy of Canada is located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and may provide helpful information and guidance on how to migrate.

Immigration Process

The Omani community in Canada has grown steadily in number, as more and more people immigrate in the hopes of finding economic opportunity and stability. One of the main pathways by which Omanis have chosen to immigrate to Canada is through the Federal Skilled Worker Program. However, this is only one of the many ways an individual may choose to immigrate.

Working in Canada

The Federal Skilled Worker Program is one of the immigration subcategories that falls under the larger category of Express Entry. While it is the most common among Omani migrants, other programs that fall under Express Entry include Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). Depending on each individual’s qualifications, each of these may prove a viable pathway to receiving permanent residence. One also may be eligible to migrate as an investor or entrepreneur. In order to determine the best program and visa for you, it may be helpful to speak to an immigration specialist.

Family Sponsorship

Immigrants with relatives who are citizens or permanent residents of Canada may choose to migrate under family class sponsorship. Therefore, having a family member such as a parent, grandparent, child, or spouse already in Canada may help improve the chances of a successful immigration process. Speak to an immigration specialist to learn more about family sponsorship and whether it is the best pathway for you.

"VisaPlace helped us navigate the immigration landscape and they directed us to a great law firm and great lawyers. All I can say is "thank you" for getting my visa quickly. VisaPlace knew exactly what kind of legal team could help where other's couldn't. The fees were reasonable and everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend VisaPlace and the immigration attorneys they work with to anyone wishing to move to Canada or to the US."
