Four years after the NBPNP program started, they have finally moved on to an online application system. Starting on September 23rd, 2019, potential candidates wishing to apply for NBPNP nomination can use the online system to submit their EOIs and their applications.
Here is the official announcement by NBPNP below:
Effective September 23rd, 2019, we will be transitioning to an online application system. This modernized system will allow us to offer a more secure and efficient approach to managing immigration applications under the Provincial Nominee Program and the Atlantic Immigration Pilot.
Paper-based applications that include a post-date mark which indicates that the application was sent via mail prior to September 1st , 2019 will be accepted. However, paper-based applications will no longer be accepted as of September 1st, 2019.
Any paper-based applications received after September 1st, 2019 will:
• be returned to the applicant together with any applicable fees;
• result in a notification that the application must be submitted online;
• not be processed.
Current clients who have not yet received a decision on their file will be contacted via email with instructions for accessing the new online system.
Please continue to monitor the www.welcomenb.ca for updates on the new system’s launch and for more information about applying to New Brunswick’s application streams. Further details will be posted at a later date.
I believe this is going to make life a LOT easier for all those who are hoping to submit EOIs to NBPNP or are waiting for ITAs or nominations.
I will definitely doing a follow-up post once the new system is functional, to help all those who intend to submit their applications through this online system.
So, get all your documents in order – your bank statements, IELTS test results, ECA verification, work references, and ID and travel documents… and all the best with your application everyone!
