Default Work Visas

Hi, can anyone advise how long the processing time is for a work visa. We are looking to move to possibly Calgary, under state programme for skilled workers and we were planning to apply for a work visa then PR.

Work Permits have to be applied and obtained before you come to Canada. Depending from circumstances application may take anywhere from few days to few months.

Hi,

Well here's my personal experience. I guess you're aware that you will need HRDC approval. That might take roughly a month. Then it will take another month for the work visa from CIC.

All the best

HRSDC validation will take few weeks only if employer already searched all over Canada for potential candidate and has the evidence that despite extensive nationwide search (with offered job terms being sufficient to attract and retain Canadians) no candidate was found. If employer didn't do it yet then it will have to be done forst and will take few months before employer can apply to HRSDC for job offer validation.
