canadian visa kenya

In recent months, there has been an increase in the number of Kenyans paying agents as much as Kshs. 500,000 to obtain work permits in Canada, However, these agents end up applying for Canadian visitor visas and duping desperate Kenyans that they’re getting them work visas.

It is important to be aware that it is not possible to directly convert a visitor visa into a work permit. In order to obtain a work permit, you must first find an employer who is willing to sponsor you. The employer must then file a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) with the Canadian government. The LMIA is a document that proves that the employer has been unable to find a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to fill the position.

Unfortunately, there are many agents who are misleading Kenyans about the process of obtaining a work permit in Canada. These agents often promise that they can help you obtain a work permit after you arrive in Canada on a visitor visa or sometimes not even disclose what kind of visa they are getting you. However, this is not possible. If you are caught trying to work in Canada on a visitor visa, you risk being deported and banned from entering Canada for several years.

This is why over the last few days, airlines are allegedly increasingly denying boarding to Kenyans who are traveling to Canada on visitor visas. This is because many airlines have become aware of the fact that some Kenyans are using visitor visas as a way to enter Canada and then try to stay permanently.

If you are considering applying for a Canadian visitor visa, it is important to do your research and understand the process. You should also be aware of the risks involved in trying to work in Canada on a visitor visa. The best way to obtain a work permit in Canada is to apply through the Express Entry system.

Here are some tips for avoiding agents who are selling Canadian visitor visas with the promise of a work permit:

  • Do your research. Before you work with an agent, make sure you understand the process of obtaining a work permit in Canada. You can find information on the Canadian government’s website.
  • Be wary of agents who make promises that seem too good to be true. If an agent promises that they can help you obtain a work permit after you arrive in Canada on a visitor visa, be wary. This is not possible.
  • Ask for references. Before you work with an agent, ask for references from other clients. This will help you to ensure that the agent is reputable.

By following these tips, you can help to protect yourself from agents who are selling Canadian visitor visas with the promise of a work permit.
