Hi all,

as a canadian citizen, does one need a work permit to work in the UK?

Thank you.

(did not know where to post this, so I'm doing it here...)

Have a look at the Moving back to the UK forum as it has lots of info on various issues and some of it may help, even though technically you aren't moving back....

Yes, Canadians definitely need a work permit to work in UK.

But if you're under 25 you can apply for a working holidaymaker visa (or at least you used to be able to, I did it a few years ago), which is quicker and allows you to work and travel through the UK.

They have actually raised the age limit to 30. Go to www.swap.ca

Good luck...

Yep! I'm currently working in the U.K with a working visa from SWAP. Really easy to get if you're under 30.....it allows you to live in the U.K for 2 years, but you can only work for 1 year.

Good luck!

Just like any other citizen of any country needs to go through CIC to live and work in Canada, you as a Canadian citizen need to go through the same wherever you go.
