What is the Intra-Company Transfer visa?

The Intra-Company Transfer (ICT) visa is a work permit issued by the Canadian government that allows qualified employees of multinational companies to be transferred to Canada for a temporary period. It facilitates the transfer of key personnel, specialized knowledge, and executive-level employees within a company’s international operations.

Who is eligible for the ICT visa?

To be eligible for the ICT visa, you must meet certain requirements, including:

  • Being currently employed by a qualifying multinational company with operations in Canada.
  • Having been employed with the company for a specified period (usually at least one year) in a managerial, executive, or specialized knowledge capacity.
  • Receiving a job offer to work for a related branch, subsidiary, or affiliate of the company in Canada.
