TV, cinema, and film have always been one of the biggest entertainment industries in the world. The shooting and production for TV and Film are regularly done in every part of the world depending on the storylines. That being said, North America is one of the biggest hubs when it comes to filmmaking and tv production. Having Hollywood right in your footsteps means that every area in its vicinity will have a lot of value. This can traverse cities and countries too. 

Countries like the USA and Canada serve as prime locations for many production houses to shoot and produce their masterpieces due to the high accessibility and availability of unique and different landscapes. 

Canada has received a fair share of its tourism or business tourism through these film and tv workers visiting Canada for a brief and specified period. They are not immigrants but are there for a limited time only. As expected, IRCC only allows those workers who come from abroad and are an essential part of the production process they are involved in.

To cater to those workers, Canada has a TV and Film Production Work Permit Category. This category of work permit allows the production team to bring personnel to Canada for a brief time. 

TV and Film Production Work Permit

The most important detail of this visa category is that it does not require a labor market impact assessment or an LMIA. Workers might require a temporary resident visa depending on their stay duration and they must follow the working provisions of Canada and Canada only.   


A letter of support from the production is needed before an applicant can apply under this category. The letter must contain the following

  1. Name and Contact of production
  2. The working title of the production
  3. Areas where the production will be done (Provinces, cities)
  4. Proposed dates 
  5. Name and contact information of the applicant
  6. A statement confirming that the individual and position are essential to that specific TV or film production

Not just that the applicant must provide documentary evidence of the profit this production will do for Canada. That document must have the following information.

  1. A senior representative of the company’s signature and the date for the same
  2. Estimated number of jobs for Canadians created by the production
  3. Estimated budgetary spend
  4. A statement confirming that the TV or film production either satisfies the criteria for the federal, provincial, or territorial tax credit for TV or film production or is the recipient of federal, provincial, or territorial funding for TV or film production

For unionized workers, a letter from the union is required with the following details.

  1. Description of the union
  2. Location of shooting and the working title of the film
  3. Signature and date of signature of a senior representative of the union
  4. Statement for the officer’s consideration indicating that the union or guild is of the view that the work to be performed is subject to a collective agreement and that it has no objection to the foreign national working in the specified position for the specified company.

Hence it can be pretty much concluded that getting to Canada is quite easy when on a film crew. You must also have a clean criminal record to bolster your chances of securing the TV and Film work permit. If you wish to learn more on the topic, feel free to submit a query at Beyond Immigration

Yes, you heard it right! INDIAN tourists can now apply for a working visa while being on a tourist visa in Canada. This facility is only available to those who are present in Canada on a tourist visa and have found a job in the Canadian market while being on a tourist visa. 

The visa will hold a validity of 2 years. This has now become a hot topic as IRCC was about to move this policy last month, but has now extended it further for 2 more years. People can use this facility till February 28th, 2025. This policy has been extended as a result of a severe labor shortage in the country of Canada. 

The applicants of this category who have held a working permit in the last 12 months will be allowed interim work so as to serve the labor shortage hit employers as quickly as possible. 

Well, how is this policy beneficial you may ask?

This policy allows the person to move to Canada as a tourist and apply for a work permit from inside the country. Earlier the application could have only been possible if the applicant had applied for it from the outside. The person was not allowed to enter the country without a work permit.

So who reaps the benefits of this policy?

  1. Should hold the status of Visitor while being in the country.
  2. A job offer from LMIA or LMIA-exempt employer
  3. Have submitted the application before 28th February 2025.
  4. The applicant must also meet the standard Canadian working visa criteria besides the above-mentioned requirements.

People who want to move to Canada and work and stay there only can use this policy to a great extent. As the labor shortage is increasing and the application date is extended, the person has a very high chance of securing a work permit.

SAT or the Scholastic Assessment Test is a comprehensive exam conducted in the USA to check a candidate’s capabilities. The test is administered by the Education Testing Service and focuses on a candidate’s verbal, writing, and mathematical ability. It is regarded as one of the most difficult tests in the world and rightly so as it is a pen-paper exam with a time limit, it requires a great deal of strategizing. 

It is pretty much accepted all around the globe and its scores are primarily used by US colleges and universities for admission of a candidate from inside and outside the country for undergraduate levels. You can appear for the exam as many times as you want and it is held 7 times a year.

It has two sections: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and mathematics. It is 3 hours long. 

Is SAT a difficult exam?

This exam is not just about giving straight answers to the questions, but the exam is more about strategy based. It’s not just about reading books to solve papers. You need to put up a timetable together for each day and practice rigorously.  So yes, the SAT is a difficult exam but with enough amount of practice, it becomes very clear for every student how to approach the paper correctly. This makes the exam not so difficult if you put the regular time for practice in.

How do I start preparing for SAT exam?

After consulting multiple students and experts, we have come up with the 4 best strategies through which you can easily crack the SAT. These 4 strategies are as follows

Learn about the structure of the exam

The most ignored part of the SAT exam is people ignoring its structure. Now it just doesn’t mean to have knowledge about the 2 sections. You should learn more about these sections from the people who have already given this exam. Consulting seniors, and teachers, and reviewing each and every rule and remark on the official website is very much required to even start your studies. 

Daily Schedule

Once you get the hang of the subjects, start practicing every section-based question every day. Prepare a healthy schedule and give equal time to all the sections and question types. Once you are getting good at the schedule, change it a bit, add the more difficult questions, and then start timing your answers. The time is from when you start your daily set of questions to when that set ends. Compare the time every day and compare it with the average time that many questions will take in a real-time exam. This will increase your efficiency in manifolds. Try making different schedules for each day so it doesn’t get mundane and most importantly, assess your week by pointing out your weak points and giving more time to them in the subsequent week. 

Mock tests

Everyone has always said that mocks are the key to success, and guess what? They are right. Every once in a while in your schedule, you should put a time slot for a mock test and aim for a realistic course based on your prep. It is not important to give a mock every day. But a high and constant frequency is needed. Mock tests with constant practice and time management will be your pillars to success in SAT exam. One of the most difficult exams after a few mocks won’t feel that difficult. 

Start reading

If you already read, well and good but you need to up the game in terms of grammar difficulty and speed. If you don’t read, you will have a lot of problems in the verbal section of the test. Newspapers, media articles, and books anything will work, preferably with a difficult grammar style.

If you follow these 4 important steps with your whole heart, there is a very high chance that you will score well on the SAT exam and get into the college of your dreams. 

Can I crack the SAT in 3 months?

If one follows a specific schedule correctly, 3 months are more than enough to score well on SAT.

How many months do I need to crack the SAT?

If studying 10-20 hours is doable for you, then 3-4 months will be enough for you to prepare for the SAT and get a great score. 

If you still wish to learn more about SAT exams and other competitive exams, Beyond Immigration will help you the most. Our team of expert SAT teachers will give you schedules and mock tests so you can get into the college of your dreams!

Another important thing to keep in mind is that this visa is NOT a sponsored visa. You do not need an employment letter from an Australian employer to apply for this visa. You need to score a total of 65 points and have a relevant occupation on the skilled occupation list

The advantages of this visa are numerous. If your visa is approved you can live, work, and study in Australia and bring your family members as well. This visa will make you a PR holder in Australia. Soon you will then be able to apply for Australian citizenship as well.

The eligibility criteria for this Visa are very strict. One must

  1. have an occupation on the relevant skilled occupation list
  2. complete a successful skill assessment for the relevant occupation
  3. have at least competent English

Step 4: Submit all the important documents. Upon receiving your visa, you are ready to fly to Australia with your family. 

Points for Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189)

The points and the cut-off play a major role in this visa. If you are not qualified you are not allowed to even send an EOI.

The points depend on various factors which determine the value of human capital and that it is an asset to the Australian economy. Major factors that influence the points are as follows

*It should be noted that graduate certificates and graduate diplomas have been excluded from any kind of extension. 

**Another thing to be noted is that all doctoral degree holders will be eligible for an extension no matter what their skill set is. The Australian Government considers Ph.D. holders as people will significant potential.

This measure will be applicable from July 1, 2023. So stay tuned for further information. The list of eligible master’s and bachelor’s degrees can be found on the Australian government’s official website

Our review of the lists suggests that all the degrees that are eligible are already very famous domains for immigration, It should be kept in mind that preference has been given to science, mathematics, engineering, and technological fields as there is a major skill shortage in these sectors. 

Another thing to be noted is that the list will keep on changing every year depending on the shortage. So there is a chance that the degree you start pursuing now will be removed (based on the skill requirements of the year) from the Eligibility lists by the time you graduate. But worry not as you will be given an extension if you graduate with a degree that was listed in the Eligibility Lists when your program started. 

Change in working hours cap for international students

If you think the other news was a positive one, just wait because we have another. The Australian Government has also increased the working hours for international students from 40 hours a week to 48 hours a week for all occupations. This will also be applicable from July 1, 2023

The Australian government has given a major green light to immigrant workers and students who wish to contribute to the Australian Economy. These extensions will result in so many immigrants applying to various incredibly world-renowned Australian Universities.

All these measures will make sure that the immigrants stay and contribute to the Australian Labour force even more than they used to. There is a large possibility that Australia will become an Immigration favorite just like Canada and the USA.
