  1. Hi,

    I have submitted my work permit application [based on TEMPORARY FOREIGN WORKER APPLICATION CHECKLIST] in Abu Dhabi Canadian Embassy.

    My questions are : (if I may :))
    1) how long it takes before the result will come out ?
    2)if ever , I'll get the result (if positive), what should be the next step ?


    Thanks in Advance...

  2. 1. 12 months according to cic.gc.ca
    2. Come to Canada and get your WP at the POE then start working. Hope your employer can wait for you.

     
  3. thanks job_seeker...
    I have read this yesterday and found out the answer to my 1 st question.

    canadainternational.gc.ca/uae-eau/visas/processing-traitement.aspx

    Temporary work permit:

    Live-in Caregivers:
    By mail: 12-14 months*
    In person: Not applicable

    Other Temporary Foreign Workers:
    By mail: 4 weeks
    In person: Not applicable


    Just confuse about the next step if ever the work permit will comes out...do I need to seed it to this address:


    CPC VEGREVILLE
    WORK PERMIT
    6212-55TH AVENUE – UNIT 202 (UNIT 555 – FOR NEW EMPLOYERS)
    VEGREVILLE, AB
    T9C 1X6
     
  4. No. once you get your passport with the visa on it, you can already come to Canada. Your work permit will be given to you upon your arrival. With your passport will be a letter that you'll show the officer and then the officer will direct you where to go.

    Hi there, you may visit the website cic.gc.ae that's the embassy of Canada website in Abu Dhabi, you may send your application through courier, they don't entertain in person application so don't waste your money in coming here. Save it when you fly to Canada. Visit the website so that you can be guided accordingly.
     
  7. Thank you for your kind help. however, i have another inquiry as i am still confused, how about the passport? i've red in the guidelines that original passport is needed if temporary resident visa is required. What does it means? If i will send my application via courier i can't send my original passport
    , instead photocopy only with special power of attorney. please advise again. thanks :)

  10. Original passport is not necessary, just submit a copy of your passport include the old copy of you passport as well if you have and make sure also to submit a copy of your residence permit or work permit from Qatar. visit the website so that you will get complete information

    If you didnt finish college its okay, you may submit a diploma in high school. Just make sure that the job that you are applying is suitable with your experience or else there is a possibility that you might not be granted for visa

  13. I'm sorry but I didn't get what u mean? U may visit the website Canadian embassy abu dhabi and check if u are suitable to apply or not.
     
  14. I have been in UAE and this is a common issue. All you could do is providing documents to support your application. You may request a employment confirmatin letter (on a company letter head where they can trace addresses and phone numbers)
