- Accept to purchase, prior to entering Canada, insurance for medical and health care, including hospitalisation and repatriation, for the entire authorized period of stay. Proof of this insurance coverage must be presented to Immigration officials upon arrival in Canada.
- Your family can come to Canada with you. However, each of your dependants (spouse/common-law partner/child/children) will have to obtain his/her woen status. Please see further information in our FAQ section.

Police Certificate (Garda Clearance form)
Go4less will provide you with information on how to obtain a Police Certificate from Ireland and from other countries if required. You will also receive an official Go4less letter which will help you to obtain your Police Certificate.
A medical examination is not generally required of persons residing in Ireland. However, persons residing in Ireland who are destined for occupations for which the protection of public health is essential must pass a medical examination. This includes working in hospitals or healthcare facilities, and working with children such as teachers and care providers. Food handlers are not included in this group and a medical examination would therefore not usually be required.
Please note you need to allow additional processing time for your application in cases where a medical examination is required.
Q. Do I have to pay at the time of applying?
Yes you must submit credit card or laser card details at the time of applying
Q. Will it affect my application if I have a criminal or immigration offence?
Yes this may have an effect on your application. All applicants that have an offence may be subject to extra processing and may have to submit extra documentation to the Canadian High Commission.
Q. What does "accompany" mean within the framework of the Canada Visa?
Within the framework of the Canada Visa, the verb "accompany" means "to be dependent on" or "to be reliant on". On the Declaration Form, when you tick that you will not be "accompanied" to Canada, you acknowledge that no individual will be reliant on you. In other words, you declare knowing that no other individual may benefit from a status, visa or permit (i.e. work or study) based on the simple fact of going to Canada with you. In this sense, you cannot be "accompanied" to Canada as each of your dependants is responsible for obtaining his/her own status in Canada. Your dependants can go with you to Canada but each person is responsible for his/her own application and/or his/her own status (please see the explanations below).
Q. I would like to apply for the Canada Visa. Can my family come with me?
Yes, your family can come to Canada with you. However, each of your dependants (spouse/common-law partner/child/children) will have to obtain his/her own status. Please see the scenarios below.
Q. I would like to apply to the IEC initiative. May my child come with me? What will his/her status be?
Yes, your child may come to Canada with you. However, each of your dependants (spouse/common-law partner/child/children) will have to obtain his/her own status.
NOTE: If you are going to Canada under the IEC initiative, without the other parent, and your child is a minor, you must read carefully the information provided by the Visas and Immigration Service of the Embassy of Canada in the UK for you will also have to prove that you are authorized to travel alone with your child.
Q. I would like to do an internship as a requirement for my studies in Ireland. Is this possible?
Yes. As a participant, you will receive an "open" work permit. This means that any employer can offer you a contract of employment, including an internship position.
Q. Is it possible to enroll in courses during my stay in Canada?
Yes. However, the courses must be part-time and considered as personal development/growth. Your courses cannot be part of a university degree. If you are in Canada under the IEC Working Holiday Program, you may enroll in language courses over a short period of time, i.e. less than six months.
Q. Do I need a machine readable and/or a biometric passport to enter Canada?
No, a machine readable and/or a biometric passport is not required to enter Canada.
Q. Where do I find the passport number that I have to write on my IEC Application Form?
In the Irish passport, the passport number is located in the top right-hand corner of page 2, in the section "Passport number".
Canadian immigration requires that you must have and maintain insurance for the entire duration of your stay in Canada. Your insurance policy must cover you for Health care, hospitalisation and repatriation. You must be able to provide proof of this insurance to the Immigration Officer upon your entry to Canada.
You may be refused entry if you do not have insurance. If your insurance policy is valid for less than 24 months, you may be issued a work permit that expires at the same time as your insurance. In this case, you may not apply for an extension of your work permit at a later date.
Go4less Travel Insurance covers all the requirements as requested by the Canadian immigration.
