Any of them.

The dog doesn't need a visa, you'll just need a large amount of money to pay for his/her transport etc!

They don't get any help - you're kind of expected to do stuff yourself!

You could take him on a WHV, although you are supposed to leave at the end of it, so do be prepared to be questioned a bit more thoroughly if you turn up with a dog.

Whether it's worth paying the extortionate amount for pet transport, plus the hassle of finding a landlord happy to accept you with a dog, if you may only be going for a year is another matter entirely.

I would suggest if coming over with a TWP or other work permit think about pet passport in case you have to return back to the UK. We bought 3 dogs with us when we came over on a TWP

the Dog visa.

They give a certain number of points based on age and breed, and then, after you've paid the fee and waited 6 years, they change everything and throw your dog's app in the bin.

And as a Brit expat's dog he gets free bones for two years and a pension.

I moved over here as a tourist initially and my dogs came with me. You don't need any visa to bring them, just the requisite paperwork from your vet.

Except the pension is not index linked. I think we should start a petition.

Cool Best visa to use to get into Canada forever

Hi all


My partner for 4 years is a trained motorcycle Machanic
From what we can see on the nova scotia sites or make head and tail from is that we think his skill is one on their list of needed but we need to find a employer for that skill but that is proving quite hard to find ! I was just wondering if anyone had any tips or pointers in the right direction and that would be great

Red face If we did a working visa and went down that route

Hi

If we went for the working visa for 12 months and passed and got the working holiday would we have to then leave right away?


Also if we loved it what would we do than ? Could we try and apply for a visa to let us stay and work or would we have to come back and try and aply like this

Also what has everyone else done with regards to work and visa how did you All get work

Default Visa application fees

Hi all

How can I pay my visa fees ? And I have read that I can email the application forms or is it best to print and send to Canadian immigration
