Hello Matt and welcome to the site,Hi there,
I'm a British male thinking of moving to Canada next year, i'm a qualified carpenter and my girlfriend of 3 years is a qualified beauty therapist.
We're both currently living and working in Cyprus but feel like this country is just a stepping stone to something better......any advice?
Which visa would be best? How much roughly do they cost? And where do I get one without being ripped off?
My heads abit confused after reading through different agency websites and doing assesments lol
There are really only two ways to enter Canada. You must either have an occupation on THE LIST of 38 Canada deems essential or have pre-arranged employment. It appears your occupation is on the list so go to
Quick Search - Results
for more details and description. If you qualify you can apply for a PR (Permanent Resident) visa and if approved be here in 6-9 months. Assuming you and your girlfriend are in a common-law relationship she can come with you under spousal sponsorship.
The costs are all applied by the Canadian Government so no rip-off is involved. You should stay away from so-called Immigration Consultants. That can certainly be a rip-off.
