WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED TO APPLY FOR A WORKING HOLIDAY?
The documents to apply for a working holiday visa are very simple for Canada. The ones that you need to pay special attention will be:
You must request a police certificate once you get your invitation to apply for the work permit for Canada. Keep in mind that it will take a while for you to receive the certificate and it is only valid for six months after being issued, so do not apply until you have your invitation.
If you have lived outside of Germany for six months or more, Canada will request a police certificate from that specific country. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back here! We have worked with participants from more than 36 countries, so there are only a few certificates in the world that we have not done before!
BIOMETRICS (IN GERMANY OR ABROAD)
In Germany you can get your biometrics at the visa application centres in Berlin or in Düsseldorf. But let’s say you are living in Munich, it will be much easier for you to travel to Wien in Austria, rather than travelling all the way north to Berlin or Dusseldorf, right?
You do not need medical insurance to apply for your working holiday visa, but you will need it once you are approved and ready to move to Canada from Germany. You will need to present proof of medical insurance to receive your work permit.
