Help Centre what do you need help with?

If I’m a dual citizen, can I have an International Experience Canada work permit under each citizenship?

Yes. For example, you can get a work permit once as a citizen of the United Kingdom and a second time as an Irish citizen

To do this, you need to:

  • have a valid passport issued by the country you're applying under,
  • meet all of the eligibility criteria for this country, and
  • provide a letter of explanation in your work permit application that says
    • you are a dual citizen
    • your other work permit is under your other country of citizenship.
