You might think that Canada only has one type of visa—the tourist visa, but you’d be mistaken. Canada actually offers multiple types of visas—such as business, study, and tourist visas—depending on your situation and reason for traveling to Canada. This article will walk you through all the different types of visas available, how to apply for them, and what the requirements are based on your particular situation, such as if you’re traveling from Chile or another country other than the US or Mexico.
Everything you need to know about getting a work permit
For anyone who already has a job in Canada, it’s much easier. Chile citizens coming here on work permits can apply directly through Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). The employer has to hire a temporary foreign worker after receiving confirmation from HRSDC that they are eligible for employment in Canada. To hire an immigrant, you need to fill out all of their personal information and select an occupation from an approved list. In order to get started with your application, first, check whether your occupation is on one of these lists. Once you’ve found one that matches your occupation, print off an Application for Employer Approval of Labour Market Opinion (LMO) and complete it with as much detail as possible.
Working in Canada while on a student visa
Students holding study permits are allowed to work on campus up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions. When school is not in session, international students can legally work full-time (up to 40 hours per week) if they have valid employment authorization and a Social Insurance Number (SIN). Otherwise, they must seek part-time or casual employment that is registered with Canada’s Employment Insurance program. For more information on these changes visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website.
How can I get a Canadian Work Permit?
A lot of people are worried that they’ll be trapped in Canada if they get a Canadian work permit. The truth is that it’s not hard at all. Most work permits only last one year, so after you have worked in Canada for a year, you can apply to renew your work permit. In fact, as long as you continue working and make sure your taxes are paid, it’s actually very difficult for Canadian immigration officials to tell whether or not you were born outside of Canada. If someone wants to leave after their permit expires, it’s really up to them whether or not they want to leave Canada.
What happens if I lose my job?
Losing your job is something you should prepare for. Unfortunately, layoffs are all too common in today’s economy. With unemployment at more than 15 percent, it’s vital that people develop and maintain alternative sources of income in case they lose their jobs unexpectedly. If you work freelance or part-time, put aside enough funds to cover one month’s worth of expenses; if you work full-time, save up to three months’ worth of money as an emergency fund.
What documents do I need for my Canadian Job Application?
It is important that you have all of your supporting documents ready before you begin applying. Your passport, birth certificate, and other personal identification will be required in order to apply for jobs in Canada. The reason that employers ask for such specific documents is that they are looking out for scams and identity theft. If you do not have any of these items readily available, then it may be difficult or impossible to find a job online.
