Other work visa applicants may submit their visa applications on paper.

Academic qualification and work experience documents should also be included. The application package is acquired and is filled out accordingly.
In order to attain a work permit in Canada, the candidate is required to have a valid passport as well as visitor visa. The visitor visa is also known as a temporary resident visa. The TRV is not something for which the candidate needs to apply for, rather the TRV is issued on its own by the government when the work permit documents are issued. Citizenship of USA, Greenland and Saint Pierre and Miquelon, declares a candidate exempt from the need of a TRV or a passport for working in Canada. But proof of citizenship will be required. The visa fee can be paid in local currency and is dependent upon the kind of work permit which is being applied for. The visa fee is non-refundable in any case.
