    i am trying to travel to canada since november 2010, and i am working to save money to be able to travel, i am only 22 years old , and i wanna start my live where i am not afraid from coming out,
    anyway gays.
    i was born in egypt but i travelled to work in kuwait. its too hot here,
    i know i am young and have a lot to do , my first goal is to travel to a gay tolerant country ( i am not travelling for sex, but i am travelling for freedom) , like canada , but its too hard for me,, i have money ,, not much its about $10000.. but someone has told me that i have to get a work permit to go to canada..( same like when a restaurant send you an invitation or a work permit )
    anyway gays...

    i hope we gays help each other............
    thanks

    Your best bet is to go to a Canadian embassy and get all the correct details. You cannot apply for citizenship in Canada if you're here visiting, all you could do is apply as a refugee once you're here but you would have to be able to prove that going back to Egypt your life would be in danger etc etc. Or marry a Canadian which would fast track citizenship although even then you may have to go back while they process it and make sure you're not faking a marriage of convenience.

    going to the embassy and ask for a visa , would take five years,
    but if i got a work contract will take only few days to travel and stay..
    but how can i get that work permit from a secure office,,
    i just wanna save time
    i wanna be in canada before i reach 23 oldicon_confused.gif

    you need to find a company willing to go through all those hoops for u and actually offer a position to you. However, in order for it to be feasible for them to do that, you wud have to posess unique skills that they couldnt find in Canada, or in a country thats closer like the US. Unfortunately, they are making it alot harder to immigrate here. You might be able to claim that by being gay you face persecution etc, which since I'm unfamiliar with Egyptian law, but familiar with Islamic views on homosexuals, you very well may be in danger if you are out there. Another thing that they look for when deciding who to admit, is will u have assistance while u are building ur new life? Family, friends, a place to stay, etc. If you don't, I would say you stand next to no chance of being accepted.Talk to an immigration lawyer, NOT AN IMMIGRATION CONSULTANT. totally different things, a consultant is a scam artist. Talk to a lawyer about it to see if u stand a case as a refugee claimant, givin how things are in Egypt, you might have a case. Worth a shot. best of luck

    Going the route of a company sponsoring you got a visa to enter Canada is quite rare. Most companies have no interest in getting foreign workers in here since they can find actual Canadians to do that job. They don't want to bother with the paperwork and costs. A few places I worked out would receive CVs from non-Canadians (they post job offers online) and would just trash them straight away. :/

    Silly me! Now I see you are in Egypt, I thought you were in the states. Good luck on your quest to come to Canada, it is a great place!! Cold in the winter though.

    I'm a great houseboy/lawnman icon_wink.gif I do that stuff here in the summer. I just wish I could move someplace warm and do it all year long!!!!!

    Check out this site - you can do it by bike for $3800. I didn't read all the details, but I think this includes meal and accommodtions. So you will have a lot of money left over to spend on activities etc.
