Work Permit Application Warning

Let this be a warning for those planning to file their work permit application.

For this week, I have received four emails asking for my opinion and help for their refused work permit application. Their common problem is being unable to convince the Visa Officer that they will return to the Philippines after their contract (strong ties).

Work Permit Application Warning

There is no appeal process for temporary resident visa application. However, applicants are allowed to reapply.

You don't need a representative or consultant to process your work permit application. Remember, however, it is more prudent and less costly to get help before filing your application than to get help after your work permit application is refused.

Don't wast your Labor Market Opinion (LMO). In work permit application, small mistakes may cause big problem.
