The SINP Express Entry stream is aligned with the Federal Express Entry stream. The candidate needs to have an active express entry profile to be eligible for the SINP EE stream. Therefore, candidates should have a minimum IELTS score of CLB 7 which is a mandatory requirement for the Federal Express Entry stream.
What is more, applicants can take advantage of the faster processing time of federal express entry once they received the nomination in their Express Entry profile. On the other hand, the SINP Occupation in-Demand sub-stream required a minimum IELTS score of CLB 4.
Upon successful nomination, candidates are issued nominations through e-mail and they have to submit their file through the offline process, which is time taking as compared to the online express entry stream.
Therefore, the main difference between these streams is the processing of files after nomination and the requirement of an IELTS score. However, at the province-level candidates need to follow the same process for applying an application to SINP and need to submit an EOI on the Oasis portal of Saskatchewan.
Moreover, candidates cannot apply to both streams at the same time. They can submit EOI through one stream only.
