  1. Hello @Bryanna need your guidance,

    For temporary work permit ..does proof of funds required? If yes then how much to show!

    My job with high wage and Highly skilled. My employer will soon get LMIA approved.. so please help me.

    If possible you can provide checklist.

    Thank you very much in advance :)
     
  2. I was on Intra Company Transfer work permit in Canada and I was not asked for any Proof of Funds.
     
  3. Can you please tell me document checklist you've submitted. And you done yourself or through consultant!
     
  4. It was done through a reputed immigration company in late 2014. Sorry, I don't have checklist.
     
  5. See the link it provides a checklist PDF doc, you need to download the doc on your computer to open the file
    https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-5487-applying-work-permit-outside-canada.html#5487E3

    I remember providing PoF as this was requested by the immigration consultant PwC... I just provided 6 months bank statement and did not provide any bank letter showing avg balance etc
     
  6. With Bank statement..what's the total amount you had?
     
  7. As you have a job offer/arranged employment, you don't need to provide proof of funds. Your current bank statements and other financials would help to only confirm your salary for your current employment
     
  8. Ok. Thank you very much :)
     
  9. Hi ,
    I do have similar situation as I soon aspecting LMIA as it’s been applied from Canada .
    My question is this I’m going to apply for Work Permit and my agent told me to secure enough funds in my bank as me my wife and two kids are going to apply with me agent told me to keep 23$ K in my bank account.
    So guys is anyone of you have any information regarding this please do share. As I do want to depend on agents word
     
  10. With the number of fake job offers going around, I would be doubly cautious before believing the agent.

    Your potential employer has to get an approved LMIA. Has the agent "applied" for the LMIA?
     
  11. Yes, agent applied on behalf of my Employer .and I was suggested name of agent by employer only and this employer is my best friends current boss so kind of trust him .

    Some advice:
    1. It seems like a scam to me. If your documents are fake (Read: Fake job offer, LMIA approval) then you could end up getting banned for misrepresentation.

    BTW the employer needs to apply for an LMIA, not an agent. Generally, it is next to impossible to get a job from outside Canada. Not sure what the agent has assured you.


    2. No, you don't need to have a specific amount in your bank account if you have arranged employment/a job offer for a skilled job
     
    AnangRaj and canuck_in_uk like this.
  13. I’m very thankful for your sincere concern.
    In my best of knowledge it’s not scam as employer appointed agent for smooth transition of process and taking agents guidance.and applied of course himself with all his relevant documents.
    I generally do not get agents for my visa works as in past I have been to many countries and don’t have desperation to go out but this opportunity seems good to me therefore just giving it a go

    But I do not understand why he asked to keep 23,000 Canadian dollars for family maintenance as I’m not applying for any PR and have not heard but keeping funds for work permit that doubt me .
