Canada announces a new 6-month visa for online workers

Ahmed Moawad - | World

VisaGuide reported that the Digital Nomad Visa Programme has additional conditions for foreign workers in Canada, as revealed by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Under the new regulations, digital nomads can work in Canada even if they only have a vacation visa. A work permit can be obtained if they are employed by a Canadian company.

If you're a digital nomad looking to spend six months in Canada, you'll need visitor status. During this period, they can serve worldwide clients, work remotely for an international business, or be self-employed.

Digital nomads who are interested in working for a Canadian business should be warned by the IRCC that they need a work visa before they can start working.

Important: No additional paperwork is required for digital nomads entering Canada. A separate work or study permit is required in Canada for family members of digital nomads who are working or studying.

Those who are able to operate remotely from any location are referred to as digital nomads by the IRCC. The Canadian government has announced that digital nomads can work remotely for six months with visitor status.

Motivating workers to relocate to Canada for the purpose of gaining experience in the country and, if they like it, making it their permanent home is the goal of this type of visa. This is all a part of the country's larger strategy to attract tech workers and establish itself as a world leader in this industry.

The bearer of this visa can relocate to Canada and reside there if he has a permanent position with a foreign company headquartered outside of Canada and his job is carried out using a "remote work" method.
