IMM 5710 - Open work permit - Clarifications required.

Discussion in 'Canadian Experience Class' started by IMMI_123, Feb 18, 2013.

  1. Hello,

    I am filling out 5710 form for me and for my spouse for open work permit.

    Myself - Primary applicant : I will continue to work for the same employer (even after getting Open work permit).In that case, Can I provide my employer details in the 'Details of Intended Work in Canada' section?

    For my spouse ( doesn't have any job offer yet from any employer)..Can I leave it blank or write NA in this section?

    Where can I locate 'document number' in my recent visitor record or work permit? I see three different numbers file number, client id and a number printed in the top ( is this the one??).

    Appreciate any inputs. THX____
  2. Client ID is the one which you need to mention in WP application form
  3. Top right corner of your work permit, there are two numbers. One in a box and one below it. The one below starts with a letter and then a series of digits. That's the number you can use. At least that's the only number that the PDF validates.

    Not sure about your other questions. Just make sure you pick Open Work Permit as the type.
  4. I have the same question and the answer is not clear... I want to have an open work permit, but I also would stay with the same company. Should I write my company's information? Because it asks to attach original offer of employment. And I don't want they mention it on my WP. Does anyone know how I should proceed? Thanks

  6. Hi Karioca,

    I did not indicate my employer's name and typed "applying for bridging open work permit". OWP does not require your employers name.
  7. Thanks Ottawa10. I did the same
  8. Hi,
