How to Apply for Your Canadian Work Visa from UAE
Express Entry: Take the Fast Track to Canada
There are various options that will allow you to work in Canada, including the most popular immigration path known as the Express Entry system. The Express Entry system allows highly skilled workers, such as engineers, doctors, and IT professionals, to immigrate to Canada from UAE in as little as 6 months. There are however certain requirements that need to be met in order to be considered eligible to apply for a Canadian working visa through the Express Entry system.
Firstly, you will need to qualify for one of the following immigration programs:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program;
- The Federal Skilled Trade Program; or
- Canadian Experience Class.
Once you are sure that you have enough PR points to qualify for one of the above programs, you will need to create an Express Entry profile so that you can be entered into draws that happen every 2 weeks. Those with the highest-ranking PR points or Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence.
The best part about the Express Entry system is that you don't need a job to apply, which means that you will have the freedom to move anywhere in Canada.
If you would like to immigrate to Canada and start working before your permanent residence status has been approved, you will need to apply for a temporary work visa for Canada.

Provincial Nomination Program: Choose Your Destination Before You Move to Canada
Another popular way to immigrate to Canada is through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This is perfect for you if for some reason you don’t qualify for the Express Entry pathway. You will need to have at least a 1-year valid job offer from a Canadian employer in order to qualify for this program.
The best place to start before applying for the PNP is to choose a province that is not only suited to your lifestyle but where your job is in demand. Although there are many job vacancies, there are also many applicants and Canadian employers are required by law to fill job vacancies with Canadian citizens before allocating jobs to foreign immigrants.
You may also want to choose a province that suits your financial needs. Have a look at what you can expect to pay in Canada for day to day expenses and find out more about the most affordable places to immigrate to in Canada.
There are also other programs geared towards assisting Canadian work visa applicants to immigrate to Canada. These programs include the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot as well as the Agri-food Pilot. These pilots help those who want to move to Canada’s smaller communities where there are more jobs, less competition, a higher quality of life, and a lower cost of living.
