Instructions for Temporary Work Permit Applicants

Temporary work permits allow an immigrant to work in the BVI, for no longer than 3 months. These are often issues to workers who are on a short contract and are needed for a specific project.

Fees for Temporary permits vary depending on salary and duration of employment in the British Virgin Islands.

Unlike many other work permits, a temporary permit does not require the need for the position to be advertised to prior to filling the role. However, the selected individual will be required to provide qualifications that demonstrate why they are needed to fill the position.

IMPORTANT! Ignore at your own peril.

Please do not leave any question blank. If a question does not apply to you, insert "not applicable" or "N/A" in the space provided. Applications printed double sided on cardstock or coloured paper, with blank spaces, and/or without original employee and employer signatures will not be accepted. The name of the employer listed on the application must coincide with the company name listed on the trade license.BVI Labour Department
