Can I apply for a work permit when I enter Canada?

COVID-19 restrictions: Who can apply at the port of entry

There are restrictions on who can apply for a work permit or give their biometrics at a Canadian port of entry right now due to travel restrictions.

You should only apply at the port of entry if you’re eligible.

Before you travel to Canada

All travellers entering Canada must follow testing and quarantine requirements to keep everyone safe. Under certain conditions, you may be exempt from some of these requirements.

Find out if you’re exempt from any testing or quarantine requirements.
