Hey guys, I have got the offer from Amazon for a position in Vancouver. I have few questions:
1.) I am currently working with Microsoft in Hyderabad. Do I need to give IELTS test for securing the work visa for Canada?
2.) If I am currently not working with amazon, will I get the work visa ? Or they will have to apply for PR?

I am currently working in India.

Can someone answer the above questions if someone has gone through this process already in the past?

    It's a point based immigration system. The offer will add points to your application. And yes, you need to present IELTS results

      He has to give IELTS only if he is applying for PR, in that case he can use his job offer to get extra points.
      But, he can avoid this if Amazon directly applies for his work permit, which is a very straight forward process.

      PS: already have Canadian PR.

    It's just takes 30 secs to reply back to give more info about the offer that the person has got. But, people only believe in getting not giving something back to the community.

    They told that this is huge offer in Vancouver. After searching on internet I found that wages in Vancouver are low compared to Seattle and all. So, this offer looks good. I have not accepted the offer yet, I am thinking about it.

    You are going to need a work permit (visa) supported by a lmia. Amazon's lawyers will take care of this. Don't worry.

    You don't have to give IELTS.
    They can directly sponsor your work visa. The process is very straight forward.

    Also, can share your offer details? Looking to make a move there.

    Thanks.
