Sorry. But I think you will find it more difficult then stated. My info is as of 2011. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp
So Peruvians need a visa to visit.
If you find another way, all the best to you and I hope you do. Spending any amount of time in Canada with a friend from Peru will be excellent. Mera is loving it here. Not so much the weather. But nonetheless
As for how I got her a work visa (Canada only issue 1yr work visas, you can renew a total of 4yr max, then have to leave for 4yrs) I had to first get a LMO (labour market opinion). This basically says the job in question can not be filled by a Canadian and you can hire a foreign worker. That in itself is tricky!!! A nanny job has other rules. I was not doing a nanny job.
Then she has to show proof of funds.
Send application to Lima.
There was a real possibility that Canada wanted a specific language test, TOEFL. (seems its hit and miss)
So she did it via IBT. Internet based test. There went another $120 or so.
Didn't need it in the end. Lol
She did her interview in Lima.
Ran around to doctors and stuff.
Two weeks later it was done.
By far, the hardest part is getting LMO. As of April 2011 things got way tighter. I was denied the first time.
(FYI. I am also the employer)
And now that August is the expiration of visa, I want to extend it.....well you gotta do the LMO thing all over again. Nuts!!
I truly wish you the best amigo.
