Provisional approval letter issued (Work Permit) Канада
A person who is not a Canadian resident or citizen and who is planning to work in Canada is usually required to obtain a work permit or other approval that he is lawfully doing so. Such permission may arrive in different forms, and requires sophisticated approval prior to eligibility to go into Canada for work.
A Canadian work permit is a provisional resident visa issue by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to award authorization to foreign workers looking for employment in Canada. It usually has maximum authority of up to one year, though work permits can be issued for up to three years in a few cases.
How can I get a Work Permit of Canada?
You have to produce a job offer letter from a Canadian employer to obtain a work permit of Canada. A job offer can be through any company that needs the services of a foreign person in Canada.
Depending on the precise type of the work permit request, extra details or supporting credentials may have to be incorporated.
The work permit procedure may go long because some applicants for a Canadian work permit will be requisite to go through a medical examination for issuance of Canadian visa earlier.

Temporary Work Permits for Foreign Workers in Canada
Introduction to Temporary Work Permits for Foreign Workers in Canada
Every year more than 90,000 foreign temporary workers enter Canada to work in a wide range of occupations and industries across the country. Foreign temporary workers need a job offer from a Canadian employer and in most cases a temporary work permit from Citizenship and Immigration Canada to be allowed to enter Canada to work.
A temporary work permit is written authorization to work in Canada from Citizenship and Immigration Canada for a person who is not a Canadian citizen or a Canadian permanent resident. It is usually valid for a specific job and a specific length of time.
In addition, some foreign workers require a temporary resident visa to enter Canada. If you need a temporary resident visa, you do not need to make a separate application — it will be issued at the same time as the documentation necessary for you to enter Canada as a temporary worker.
Your prospective employer will likely need to get a labor market opinion from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRDSC) to confirm that the job can be filled by a foreign worker.
In order for your spouse or common-law partner and dependent children to accompany you to Canada, they must also apply for permission. They don’t need to complete separate applications, however. The names and relevant information for immediate family members can be included on your application for a temporary work permit.
The process and documents required to work temporarily in the province of Quebec are different, so check the Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturally for details.
Who Needs a Temporary Work Permit for Canada
When a Temporary Work Permit for Canada is Required
Anyone who is not a Canadian citizen or a Canadian permanent resident who wants to work in Canada must be authorized. Usually, that means getting a temporary work permit for Canada.
When a Temporary Work Permit for Canada is Not Required
Some temporary workers do not need a temporary work permit for Canada. Categories of workers exempted from needing a temporary work permit include diplomats, foreign athletes, clergy and expert witnesses. These exemptions may change at any time, so please check with the visa office responsible for your area to confirm that you are exempt from a temporary work permit.
Special Procedures for Temporary Work Permits
Some job categories in Canada have streamlined procedures for applying for a temporary work permit or have different requirements.
The process and documents required to work temporarily in the province of Quebec are different, so check the Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturally for details.

- you are a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, Greenland or Saint-Pierre et Miquelon
- you do not need a medical exam
- you do not need a temporary resident visa to visit Canada
- your job does not need a labor market opinion from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) or you have a labor market opinion from HRSDC.
Requirements for a Temporary Work Permit for Canada

Documents Required to Apply for a Temporary Work Permit for Canada
In general, the following documents are required to apply for a temporary work permit for Canada. Check the information provided in the application kit carefully for details and in case there are other documents required for your specific circumstances. There may also be additional local requirements, so contact your local visa office to verify that you have all the required documents before submitting your application for a temporary work permit.
- Proof of Identity — a valid passport or travel document for you and each family member accompanying you. If the country that issued your passport requires a re-entry permit, you must have one before you apply for a temporary work permit for Canada. Citizens and permanent residents of the United States, Saint-Pierre, and Miquelon, and Greenland do not need passports but do need proof of status and citizenship. You must also supply two recent passport-size photos.
- Proof of Employment in Canada — a written job offer or contract from your prospective employer
- Proof of Qualifications — proof that you meet the requirements of the job, including educational requirements and work experience
- HRDSC Confirmation — if required for your job, your prospective employer must get a labor market opinion and confirmation from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada(HRDSC) and provide you with the file identifier number
- Quebec Certificate of Acceptance (CAQ) — required if you are planning to work temporarily in the province of Quebec. Check the Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturally site for details.

How to Apply for a Temporary Work Permit for Canada
To apply for a temporary work permit for Canada:
- Download the temporary work permit application kit and guide (in PDF). You can also contact the Canadian embassy, high commission or consulate responsible for your area to have a temporary work permit application kit mailed to you.
- Read the guide carefully. Processing fees for temporary work permit applications are not refundable, so be sure you are eligible for a temporary work permit and can meet the requirements before you apply.
- Complete the form and attach the required documents. If you don’t follow all the instructions or don’t provide the necessary documents, your application could be returned to you or delayed. Sign and date your application. Double check that you have completed the application fully and that you have enclosed all the required documents. Make a copy of your application for your own records.

- Submit your application. For details on accepted methods of submitting your application, consult the visa office responsible for your area.
Processing Times for Applications for Temporary Work Permits for Canada
Processing times vary greatly depending on the visa office responsible for processing your temporary work permit application. The Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada maintains statistical information on processing times to give you an idea of how long applications at different visa offices have taken in the past to use as a general guideline.
Citizens of certain countries may need to complete additional formalities which could add several weeks or longer to the normal processing time. You will be advised if these requirements apply to you.
If you require a medical exam, it could add several months to the application processing time. While generally no medical exam is required if you plan to stay in Canada for less than six months, it does depend on the type of job you will have and where you have lived for the past year. A medical exam and a satisfactory medical assessment will be required if you wish to work in health services, child care, or primary or secondary education. If you want to work in agricultural occupations, a medical exam will be required if you have lived in certain countries.
If you require a medical exam, a Canadian immigration officer will tell you and send you instructions.
Work Permits | Canadian Immigration FAQs
Thousands of people come to Canada each year to work temporarily. Some of them leave when their work permit expires, while others choose to apply for permanent residence. Here’s everything you need to know about Canadian work permits!
What is a work permit?
A Canadian work permit is a document issued to foreigners who want to work in Canada. Except for jobs that are specifically exempted, a foreigner seeking employment in Canada must apply for and obtain a work permit before entering the country.
How do work permits differ from Express Entry?
While a work permit is a temporary residence visa, Express Entry is the application system for skilled workers seeking permanent residence in Canada. Work permits are issued to high-skilled and low-skilled workers seeking to do a job in the country provided they demonstrate their intention to leave after expiry of the permit.
While Canadian work experience gained through the work permit can be beneficial for future application under Express Entry, the temporary permit cannot be automatically converted into permanent residence.
What are the types of work permits in Canada?
Canada issues two types of work permits—open work permits and employer-specific work permits.
Employer-specific work permits, as the name suggests, grants permission to a foreign worker to work in a specific position under a specific employer. Holders of such a permit will have to apply for a new work permit in order to either undertake new or additional responsibilities under the same employer or work under a different employer.
An open work permit allows the permit holder to work for any employer in Canada, provided the employer:
- Is not ineligible due to failure to comply with conditions/responsibilities/requirements under the Temporary Foreign Worker program or the International Mobility Program; and,
- Doesn’t offer regular services directly pertaining to adult entertainment.
Can anyone be issued an open work permit?
No. Open work permits are only issued to:
- Applicants for permanent residence already in Canada and their spouses,
- Spouses of foreign individuals with Canadian study permits,
- Individuals who are in Canada on a work permit, who have already applied for permanent residence, whose work permit will expire soon,
- Other eligible categories of foreigners including those without means of support, those seeking entry for humanitarian reasons, participants in exchange programs, those on a working holiday program, etc.
How can I apply for a work permit?
The applicant must fulfill basic eligibility requirements including intention to return upon expiry of the work permit, adequate financial resources to take care of self and family members till, and including, departure from Canada, good health, a clean criminal record, etc.
If the Canadian job is not exempt from requiring a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), then the employer offering the job to the applicant must apply for and obtain a positive LMIA from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
The employer must issue a valid job offer with detailed information about the position along with the positive LMIA to the applicant.
The applicant must submit the above-mentioned documents along with the work permit application and requisite fee.
Is it mandatory to have a job offer?
Yes. Unless you are eligible to apply for an open work permit, you must have a job offer. Further, unless the work permit is LMIA-exempt, the employer must secure a positive LMIA as well for the applicant to qualify for the work permit.
What is a LMIA and why is it important?
The Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) requirement protects the Canadian labour market by ensuring foreign workers are hired only for those jobs that cannot be performed by Canadian citizens or permanent residents. The LMIA process involves assessment of numerous factors like wages, job responsibilities, scope for transfer of knowledge into Canada, extent of creation of domestic jobs, and overall impact on the Canadian labour market and economy.
To work in Canada, all applicants must have a valid work permit and a positive LMIA, except for jobs that are exempted from the LMIA requirement.
What are the language requirements for a work permit?
The applicant must be proficient in one of the official languages of Canada to the extent necessary for him or her to perform the job duties properly. The language requirements may be laid out in the LMIA process, the National Occupational Classification as applicable to the job, and upon review of the application by the immigration officer.
Can one bring family members when entering on a work permit?
Yes. Spouse and dependent children can either accompany or subsequently join the work permit holder in Canada. Such family members can qualify for an open work permit or study permit provided they fulfill other applicable conditions.
What is the duration of a work permit?
Work permits are temporary visas, which means they will not be valid for an indefinite period of time. There is no set maximum validity period of a work permit. The validity period will depend on:
- The job offer from your employer;
- The length of time listed on your LMIA, if your employer needed to get one to hire you; and
- How long your passport is valid for.
As long as your work permit is still valid, you can also apply for an extension. If you apply for an extension before your work permit expires, you will be allowed to keep your status in Canada and continue to work under the same conditions until a decision is made.
CANADA WORK PERMIT VISA
Canada Work Permit, or a Work Visa, is issued to eligible overseas individuals to work in that country for a specific time period.
People need to apply for a Work Visa only after getting a job offer or an employment contract from a Canadian employer. The employer must obtain from ESDC (Employment and Social Development Canada) an LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment), which gives them permission to recruit foreign skilled workers for occupations that cannot be filled in by citizens or permanent residents of Canada.

Yes, definitely. I’ve used GenoPalate in the past for this — it’s $189 for the report and even cheaper if you’ve already done DNA analysis with an ancestry company.
Here is the step by step procedure for Canada Work Permit:
Step 1: Employer applies for LMIA, if necessary.
Step 2: Employer extends a temporary job offer.
Step 3: You pay the Application Fee.
Step 4: You apply for the Work Permit.
Step 5: Work Permit is issued.
It is very difficult — almost impossible — because of Canada’s employment structure. First, to get a work permit, you must have a job offer in Canada.
Employment regulations in Canada DO NOT ALLOW an employer to offer a job to someone outside Canada without first PROVING that no one in Canada can do that job.
This requires extensive advertising and an application for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). To obtain an LMIA, the employer must advertise the position widely for at least month and then wait an additional two months for processing.
In addition to advertising costs, the employer .
Provisional approval letter issued (Work Permit) Канада
Many expats who want to live and work in the Netherlands (for more than 90 days) need to apply for a residence permit. The type of application you should submit depends on your nationality and on your reason for moving to the Netherlands, such as family, studies, work or other purposes.
On this page we look at the different purposes for applying for a Dutch residence permit (verblijfsvergunning), as well as certain requirements and the application procedure.
Reasons to apply for a residence permit
There are many different reasons for seeking residence in the Netherlands. It is important to choose the purpose that best fits your situation as this influences which permit application you select and submit.
Purpose of stay in the Netherlands
The main purposes for applying for residence in the Netherlands include:
- As a spouse, (unmarried) partner or family member.
- As an employee or self-employed individual.
- As a highly skilled migrant or scientific researcher.
- As a student at a university or higher education institution.
- As a student at a secondary or vocational school.
- As a graduate in an orientation year.
- As part of an exchange or working holiday programme.
- As an au pair.
- As a Turkish national.
- As a foreign investor.
- As an entrepreneur on a startup visa.
- As a refugee or asylum seeker.
To find out which purpose best applies to your situation check the IND.
Do I need a residence permit in the Netherlands?
Whether you need a Dutch residence permit depends on your nationality and the amount of time you are spending in the Netherlands.
EU, EEA and Swiss citizens
Citizens of EU / EEA countries and Switzerland do not need a residence permit to live and work in the Netherlands, in line with the EC Treaty. Expats from these countries are not required to register with the IND. However, if they stay more than four months in the Netherlands then they need to register at their local municipality (gemeente).
Family members of European citizens
Under EU Law, family members of EU / EEA and Swiss nationals living in the Netherlands can join them there, even if they do not have European citizenship. This includes spouses and (unmarried) partners. In such situations the family members may apply for verification against EU Law to request a certificate of lawful residence — if they meet the IND’s requirements for third country nationals.
It’s important to note this option does not apply to family members of Dutch nationals, unless the Dutch national has lived in another EU country.
Short stays: Dutch residence permit not necessary
A residence permit and short stay visa are not required if you are staying in the Netherlands for less than 90 days and your country of citizenship has a non-visa agreement with the Netherlands. See a list of nationalities that do or do not require a visa.
If you are coming to the Netherlands for less than 90 days and your country does not have a non-visa agreement with the Netherlands then you will need to apply for a short stay visa before you travel. You can apply for a short stay visa in person at the Dutch embassy or consulate in your country of residence.
Longer stays: Dutch residence permit required
If you plan to stay in the Netherlands for more than 90 days then you will need to apply for a residence permit.
Depending on circumstances and nationality, some internationals can apply for a residence permit directly at the IND after they arrive in the Netherlands. Others will need to apply for a residence permit and provisional residence permit (MVV) at the Dutch embassy or consulate in their country of residence before they travel to the Netherlands.
The MVV provisional residence permit
Some internationals also need to apply for an MMV permit when they apply for a Dutch residence permit.
What is an MVV?
The MVV (Machtiging tot Voorlopig Verblijf) is a provisional residence permit that allows you to enter the Netherlands as a potential resident rather than a tourist. The MVV is not an official residence permit.
You or your sponsor can apply for the MVV and the residence permit simultaneously before you travel. This is known as the TEV procedure (Entry and Residence Procedure).
Do I need an MVV?
You do not need to apply for an MVV if one of the following applies:
- You currently have a valid residence permit for the Netherlands.
- You are a citizen from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Canada, the USA, Monaco or the Vatican City.
- You are a citizen from an EU/EEA country or from Switzerland.
- You are a family member or (proven) partner of a citizen from an EU/EEA country or from Switzerland, even if you hold a different nationality.
- You currently hold a permanent residence permit from another EU country as a «Long-term resident-EC CE».
- You or a family member have held a European Blue Card for 18 months in another EU country.
- Your situation fits other specific circumstances which do not require an MVV outlined by the IND.
Sponsorship for a Dutch residence permit
Sponsorship is required for most types of Dutch residence permit. Some forms of residence permit do not require sponsors, such as the orientation year for graduates or some working holiday programmes.
Who or what is a sponsor?
If you are coming to the Netherlands as an employee, researcher or highly skilled migrant then your employer is your sponsor. If you are coming for family reasons then your relative or partner in the Netherlands is your sponsor. If you are coming to study then your educational institution is your sponsor.
The IND and Dutch residence permits
All Dutch residence permit applications are processed by the IND (Dutch department of Immigration and Naturalisation).
Applications lodged in the Netherlands can be directly submitted with the IND. Applications from abroad can either be submitted at the Dutch embassy or consulate in your country of residence, or at the IND by your sponsor who is already in the Netherlands.
Requirements for a residence permit in the Netherlands
The requirements for a residence permit in the Netherlands vary greatly, depending on your reason for applying and on which application form you submit. For example, the application requirements for a highly skilled migrant coming to the Netherlands are very different from the application requirements of a family member.
To find out which requirements apply to your specific circumstances you can check the IND. Requirements are also stated on IND application forms.
Application procedure for a Dutch residence permit
The process for applying for a Dutch residence permit is as follows:
How to apply for a Dutch residence permit without an MVV
If you are exempt from the MVV then your sponsor can apply on your behalf for a residence permit while you are still abroad, mentioning your expected arrival date.
Alternatively, you or your sponsor can apply for your residence permit by post or in person at an IND Desk (by appointment) after you arrive in the Netherlands.
If you submit your application in the Netherlands then the IND will place a residence endorsement sticker (verblijfsaantekening) in your passport as proof that you can lawfully stay in the Netherlands while your application is being processed. The sticker also states if you can work or not.
How to apply for a Dutch residence permit with an MVV (TEV procedure)
If you are applying for an MVV and a residence permit at the same time then you can follow the TEV procedure before you come to the Netherlands.
If you have a sponsor in the Netherlands they can start the application process on your behalf. You can also start the TEV procedure at the Dutch embassy or consulate or in your country of residence.
Dutch residence permit application forms
You can find digital versions of most permit application forms via the IND. You can also pick up forms from IND Desks (by appointment). It is highly advised to contact the IND in advance and to check with them about the requirements for your application.
For some permits only a sponsor can submit the application. Also, if you submit an incorrect form or require an MVV but fail to apply for it then your ability to stay in the Netherlands may be affected.
Supporting documentation for a residence permit in the Netherlands
To support your residence permit application you will need to gather documents, such as a birth certificate, to submit with your application. The documents you need to provide depend on which application form you are submitting. Each form lists the necessary documents.
Official foreign documents need to be legalised or receive an apostille stamp, depending on the relevant authorities in the country of issue. Documents must be in Dutch, English, French or German. Other languages will need to be translated by a sworn translator in the Netherlands.
Dutch residence permit costs and application fees
There are costs for applying for a Dutch residence permit or MVV. The amount depends on the type of application. You can check prices on the IND application costs page.
The IND will send a payment request after they receive your application. Payment is possible via cash or debit card. Credit cards and payments in instalments are not possible.
If your application is refused your fees will not be refunded.
IND response time
After submitting your form and paying the fee, the IND will assess your application. The assessment time can vary as the IND is legally permitted to take up to 90 days to reach a decision on your application.
How to contact the IND about your application
You can check on the status of your application by calling the IND on 088 0430 430 (normal phone charges apply) between 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. From abroad the number is: +31 88 0430 430.
Remember to have your V-number (file number) on hand and that the IND phone line sometimes has long waiting times.
How to collect your residence permit
If your application is approved you or your sponsor will receive a letter of confirmation.
Applications without MVV
If you are already in the Netherlands you can collect your residence permit from an IND Desk. At this appointment the IND will also gather your biometric details such as your fingerprints, signature and passport photo.
Applications with TEV procedure
If you are following the TEV procedure and are outside the Netherlands you will be able to collect your MVV from the Dutch embassy or consulate in your country of residence. Once you arrive in the Netherlands you will have two weeks to pick up your residence document from an IND Desk. Highly skilled migrants can also collect their residence permit from an expat centre.
Note that you can only visit the above locations by appointment.
Rejection of a Dutch residence permit application
If your application is rejected the IND will send a letter stating their reasons for not issuing a residence permit or MVV. The letter will also explain if and how you can lodge an objection.
Additional actions when you arrive in the Netherlands
Depending on the requirements of your permit you may need to complete a few additional actions:
Registration at the town hall
All internationals who are staying longer than three months in the Netherlands need to register at their local municipality (gemeente) to be entered in the BRP (Personal Records Database).
Tuberculosis test (tuberculose onderzoek)
Some people will be required take a tuberculosis test (TB test) within three months of the permit approval. For such a test you must make an appointment at your closest Municipal Health Service (GGD).
Integration exams (inburgeringsexamen)
Some people will be required to integrate in the Netherlands by taking a test such as the Civic Integration Exam (inburgeringsexamen) or the Dutch as a Second Language State Exams (Staatsexamens NT2). To prepare they must attend courses on Dutch language and culture.
If this applies you will receive a letter from DUO (the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science) stating what requirements you need to fulfil and the time frame. To find out more visit the Integration in the Netherlands website.
Renewing a residence permit in the Netherlands
The maximum duration of a Dutch residence permit is five years. Normally you or your sponsor will receive a letter of notification (and extension application form) three months before your residency expires. If you do not receive this letter then you should contact the IND as soon as possible.
Can I extend my residence permit?
Depending on your circumstances you may be able to extend your residency if you meet the conditions for an extension, or if you have changed your purpose of stay. It is essential to resolve your residency status before the expiry of your permit to avoid an illegal stay or potential entry ban.
Permanent residence or Dutch citizenship
If you have spent sufficient time in the Netherlands and are eligible, then you may want to apply for permanent residence or Dutch citizenship.
Visas & Work Permits in the UAE

The Gu >
If you are moving to the UAE and want to know whether you need a residence permit, work permit, or both, then this guide is for you. We go over the requirements of how to get residency in the UAE, what is a self-employment visa, the cost of being a skilled worker, and the various UAE visa types you can apply for.

UAE visa requirements for expats are considerably less intensive than in neighboring Middle Eastern countries. As a popular expat destination, the UAE attempts to make the visa application and process as straightforward as possible. To apply for a UAE visa, most expats first need an entry permit, also called a pink card. This can be sponsored in a number of ways such as work, a hotel, or resident family member. Once in the UAE, expats can apply for the residence visa and work permit.
Most expats secure employment before they arrive in the UAE. This is the easiest way to obtain a residence visa and work permit. In general, UAE companies will complete all visa requirements for expats, including covering UAE visa fees. In most cases these companies will sponsor the visas of an employee’s immediate family as well.
Work Permits and Employment Based Visas
Obtaining a work permit or employment visa in the UAE is fairly straightforward. The majority of expats arrive in the UAE having already secured employment. This streamlines the visa process as most UAE companies handle all residence visa and work permit requirements, including covering visa fees.
Work permits and employment visas can last anywhere from one to ten years. As of May 2020, the UAE released its first ever permanent residency scheme: the Gold Card. This visa applies primarily to “exceptional professionals.” Read more about it in our Residency Permits section.
What are the UAE Work Visa Requirements?
Before you obtain a UAE work permit, you must first obtain an entry visa, Emirate ID card, and residence visa. Your work permit, also called a labor card, will be listed in your residence visa. To learn more about obtaining a residence visa, please see our Residency Permits: Temporary and Permanent section below.
The most important work visa requirement is proof of a work contract or job offer from a company within the UAE. Everything else that is required for the work permit is also required for the residency visa:
- Application form
- Emirates ID card
- Several passport-photos
- Original passport plus photocopy
- Copy of valid company card
- Valid commercial license of the company
- Medical check and health certificate
- Entry permit issued by the Ministry of Labor
Labor cards are issued by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) and the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in the emirate state where you are employed. It takes about ten days to receive your labor card. It is typically valid for two years.
All submitted forms and documents must be written in Arabic. The employment contract should also be written in Arabic. You will need three copies: one for yourself, one for your employer, and one for the Department of Labor.
Keep in Mind
It is illegal to work in the UAE while on a tourist visa. If you secure employment while in the UAE on a tourist visa, you must change your visa status before you start work.
There is no age stipulation when issuing work contracts, but work permits for those 65 years and older will incur an extra 5,000 AED (1,360 USD) fee every two years.
Nationals of Israel cannot enter the UAE. Indian nationals are advised to look at specifics pertaining to their visas.
What does a UAE Work Visa Cost?
The cost of a UAE work visa depends on the category of your company and whether you are a skilled or unskilled worker.
Level 1: These are the individuals who have a bachelor’s degree or higher qualification. These are some of the qualified professionals:

A, B, C, and D refers to the percentage of skilled/unskilled workers the company employs. (A has over 40% skilled workers. D has less than 5%.)
(Degree Certificate Required Profession)
(Secondary and below level Profession)
|1||300 AED (81 USD)||300 AED (81 USD)|
|2-A||500 AED (136 USD)||1200 AED (326 USD)|
|2-B||1000 AED (272 USD)||2200 AED (600 USD)|
|2-C||1500 AED (408 USD)||2700 AED (735 USD)|
|2-D||2000 AED (544 USD)||3553 AED (967 USD)|
|3||5000 AED (1361 USD)||5000 AED (1361 USD)|
This is only a breakdown of work visa costs. If your company is not covering your visa fees, be sure to factor in extra costs for medical tests, translation services, legal fees, etc. On average, a UAE visa costs about 7000 AED (1,900 USD).
As such a progressive business culture, the UAE offers business visas for skilled workers who will contribute to the country’s economic prosperity and growth. For inquiries about self-employment visas specifically, please see our Self-Employment section that follows.
This is a 90-day business visa. It must be sponsored by a company in the UAE. It allows expats to enter the country and work for a short period of time. Some expats use this visa to explore the UAE before officially relocating.
Persons with Specialized Talents
This visa includes specialized talents and researchers in the fields of science and knowledge. This applies to doctors, specialists, scientists, inventors, as well as creative individuals in the field of culture and art. The visa advantage extends to the spouse and children. All categories are required to have a valid employment contract in a specialized field of a priority in the UAE.
Granting this visa is subject to the following conditions:
- Scientists must be accredited by the Emirates Scientists Council or holders of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Medal for Scientific Excellence.
- Creative individuals in culture and art must be accredited by the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development.
- Inventors must obtain a patent of value, which adds to the UAE’s economy. Patents must be approved by the Ministry of Economy.

- Doctors and specialists must meet at least two of the following conditions:

- Membership in an organization related to the field.
- A Ph. D. degree, in addition to 10-year professional experience in their field.
- Specialization in areas of priority to the UAE.
This visa is valid for ten years.
In order to sponsor family members, it is not mandatory that expats have a work permit. Expats need only a residence visa to sponsor family members in the UAE. It is impossible to have a work permit without a residence visa.
For more information on family visas, please see our Residency Permits sections.

Основатель и генеральный директор Канадского сервисного центра.
Канадский Сервисный Центр- единственная компания на территории РФ и СНГ, предоставляющая полный комплекс услуг для выезжающих в Канаду: оформление виз, иммиграции, подбор и зачисление у учебные заведения Канады, организация деловых поездок, групповых и индивидуальных туров, содействие в покупке недвижимости в Канаде и многое другое.
Компания была основана в конце 2008 года бывшим сотрудником посольства Канады в Москве и по сей день является, пожалуй, единственной экспертной организацией в области организации выезда в Канаду.
При наличии действующего контракта с канадской компанией и LMIA, можно оформлять данный тип визы. Work permit позволяет Вам проживать и работать на территории Канады. Виза обычно выдается на срок действия контракта.
Добрый день! Я занимаюсь исследовательской деятельностью, так случилось, что у меня появилась возможность учиться по программе PhD в канадском университете. Однако путь от момента зачисления в университет до пересечения канадской границы оказался не самым простым. Имея достаточный опыт самостоятельного оформления туристических виз в шенгенскую зону, случай с Канадской визой оказался особенным. Изучив информацию, предоставляемую CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), подал документы самостоятельно, действуя строго по алгоритму и благополучно получил отказ через 10 дней. Расклад, очевидно, не самый приятный. Однако, ситуацию исправили сотрудники Канадского Сервисного Центра. После подробного разговора конкретно по моей ситуации, был определен набор документов, которые решено было прикреплять к заявлению. Далее всем оборотом документов занимались сотрудники центра, при этом постоянно уведомляя меня о ходе дела и оперативно отвечая на мои вопросы. Эта попытка оказалась удачной во многом именно за счет опыта сотрудников центра. Сейчас я нахожусь на территории Канады и очень рад открытым возможностям. Мой опыт показал, что сотрудники Канадского Сервисного Центра свое дело знают и им можно доверять.
Делала визу после трех отказов, которые получила в другом агентстве и уже не думала что когда-либо попаду в Канаду. Здесь мне все рассказали, все ошибки, которые были допущены и дали мне совершенно другой список документов. Я не знаю как они это делают, но я получила визу после трех отказов на 8 лет. Спасибо большое Канадскому Сервисному Центру и руководителю, Инне, в частности.
Хочу выразить огромную благодарность за оформления рабочей визы в Канаду и за профессионализм оказаных услуг. В связи сложившихся обстоятельств мне необхомимо было сделать визу в короткий срок, обычно этот тип визы оформляют в течении трех месяцев, однако мне сделали ее довольно быстро, чуть больше месяца и то из-за новогодних праздников. Кроме того, в этом центре люди всегда приветлевы и помогают клиентам не только с оформлением виз. Желаю процветания и удачи!
Выражаем большую благодарность сотрудникам Канадского сервисного центра за высокую культуру обслуживания и оперативность в оформлении виз.
Добрый день! Я прошла собеседование на границе и сейчас в Канаде.Cпасибо вам за подготовку и помощь!

Let’s explore the topic of how to activate your Canadian work permit, a process that has changed over the years with the advent of online applications and changing processes.
This page focuses on activating a Canadian work permit through any of the available application methods: online, by paper, or at the border itself, with further distinctions on whether you are applying from within Canada or outside Canada.
Work permit application types
At the border
Under a pilot program initiated in 2020, applying for and/or activating a Canadian work permit at the border may not be possible at every single border crossing. Moreover, where it is possible, it may only be possible on certain days and/or between certain times, depending on the border crossing.
We also have arrival tips depending on your work permit type:
LMIA-supported work permit
LMIA-exempt work permit for a specific employer (e.g. Intra-Company, IEC Young Professionals)
IEC working holiday
Activate your Canadian work permit: online applications
The benefits of applying for a Canadian work permit online, as opposed to by paper, are outlined elsewhere on this website (in a nutshell: it’s quicker, you can avoid processing delays, incomplete applications are returned, and it’s easier to ensure completeness before submitting in the first place).
Let’s turn our attention for a moment to the post-application stage: the activation stage.
If you applied for your Canadian work permit online and from within Canada, you will, if approved, received a letter in the mail from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) informing you that your Canadian work permit application has been approved. Thereafter it’s simply a short waiting game to receive the actual, physical work permit to your mailing address. When you receive it, you can consider it activated. You have nothing left to do (except enjoy working in Canada, of course).
If you applied for your Canadian work permit online and from outside Canada, you will, if approved, receive an approval letter (the letter of introduction) with instructions on how to obtain your actual, physical work permit upon presentation of this letter and other key documentation at a Canadian port of entry. See below for details, depending on the type of Canadian work permit you have applied for.
Note: If you’re an applicant under the International Experience Canada (IEC) program or eligible for two-week processing through the Global Skills Strategy, you can only submit your work permit application online. You cannot apply by paper or at the border.
Activate your Canadian work permit: paper applications
Some Canadian work permit applicants prefer to apply by paper, either because they are more accustomed to using a pen and paper than a mouse and keypad, or for any other reason that may be specific to their situation. (For example, applicants who want to maximize a period on implied status may consider a paper application, purely because processing times are typically longer than for online applications.)
There are different guides and forms to apply on paper for Canadian a work permit, depending on whether you are applying from inside Canada or outside Canada.
But that’s about the application stage; our focus here is on activating your Canadian work permit having submitted by paper.
If you applied for your Canadian work permit by paper and from within Canada, you will, if approved, received a letter in the mail from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) informing you that your Canadian work permit application has been approved. Thereafter it’s simply a short waiting game to receive the actual, physical work permit to your mailing address. When you receive it, you can consider it activated. You have nothing left to do (except enjoy working in Canada, of course).
If you applied for your Canadian work permit by paper and from outside Canada, you will, if approved, receive an approval letter (the letter of introduction) with instructions on how to obtain your actual, physical work permit upon presentation of this letter and other key documentation at a Canadian port of entry. See below for details, depending on the type of Canadian work permit you have applied for.
Note: If you’re an applicant under the International Experience Canada (IEC) program or eligible for two-week processing through the Global Skills Strategy, you can only submit your work permit application online. You cannot apply by paper or at the border.
Activate your Canadian work permit: applying at the border
Some Canadian work permit applicants are able to apply upon presentation of their case and supporting documents — no online or paper application required. Two things to note:
- If you’re an applicant under the International Experience Canada (IEC) program or eligible for two-week processing through the Global Skills Strategy, you can only submit your work permit application online. You cannot apply by paper or at the border.
- You can only apply for a Canadian work permit at the border if you are a citizen of a visa-exempt country. Click the sl >

Some people intending to apply for a Canadian work permit at the border may already be in Canada. In this case, they may undertake a process known as flagpoling, indicating the quick U-turn made at the US-Canada border before re-entering Canada.
Many temporary residents of Canada wish to avoid the online or paper application process in order to bypass the anticipated time it would take IRCC to process the application. Whereas an online application to IRCC may take weeks or months to process, applying at the border, where a Canadian border services officer may review the case, can take just a few minutes, excluding travel time.
When flagpoling, you are applying for a Canadian work permit and (hopefully!) activating it on the same day. Note that certain restrictions on flagpoling have been rolled out at some border crossings. For a full overview, please visit this page.
Applying for a Canadian work permit is also possible for certain visa-exempt applicants coming to Canada from another country. In such cases, please note again that IEC and Global Skills Strategy applications are among the applications that are refused processing at the border.
