Will it be alright if I will renew my work permit with my current employer and then later on just apply for a change of employer? Yes
i won't be questioned or the processing wont take even much longer if i just had my work permit renewed and then i will apply for change of employer? No
or while my work permit renewal is still on process, and the LMO arrives, can I submit another application for the change of employer then? You would have to withdraw your application before you submit another one.
I am trying to see which is the best option, wait for the new employer's LMO and then I will apply for renewal and change of employer or apply now for a renewal under my current employer and then just apply again later for change employer? apply now for a renewal under current employer and then just apply again later for change employer
For your new employer to advertise, and then apply for the new LMO, it would take approximately 10 weeks, if everything went smoothly, plus a week or two for the transmittal of communications. So there goes the three months. Then you' d have to submit your application which going by the processing time is another month, your present work permit would have expired by then. You just have to give your present employer enough notice (usually two weeks) before you start working with the new employer, or whatever stipulation on changing employers is on your contract.
