How to Rectify Mistakes in Your Express Entry Profile


Express Entry Profile is an online system which intakes your personal details and credentials and gives out a score based on the detail you provided in your profile.

If the mentioned skills and experience are in line with the eligibility requirements, then your profile will be accepted in the Express Entry pool among other candidates.

Due to human involvement in the submission of details, there are clear chances of errors that may went unnoticed before final submission of your profile.

What to do in such cases?

If your profile is in the pool and you have not yet received Invitation To Apply (ITA), then your mistakes can be rectified.
Below is the step wise step process to get clear your mistakes from the profile:

  • Visit welcome page of your Express Entry account. Trace and select the option that reads “What would you like to do today?”
  • Next click the section that says, “View my submitted applications or profiles” and click on the button that says “Check status and messages.”
  • Below the “Application/profile details” screen, you’ll find a button that says, “View submitted application.”
  • On the “Express Entry profile” page, hit the button that says, “Update form.” Make sure you select the appropriate section for modification.
  • Make all the required/ desired changes and scroll to the bottom of the pages, then click “Save and exit.”

However, you cannot make changes in every situation. The two situation that can take away this opportunity from you to rectify mistakes are:

- When You Fail on The Eligibility Ground Initially, Itself.

In case you are not eligible on the basis of information you provide in your Express Entry Profile, then your profile will not show the above mentioned options to ‘make change’. The only option you’ll be able to see in this case would be ‘view profile’.

- When You Have Received Your Invitation To Apply (ITA).

After you receive your Invitation To Apply then the information you provided in your Express Entry Profile becomes locked at one place. After that, you cannot make desired changes/ rectifications.

To save yourself from getting trapped in this situation, hire a consultant like Aptech Global to make it all go correct, in the first submission itself!
