    My gf is coming over from Canada for 4 months, but this time wants to work here the entire time.

    I have looked up some Visa options, but some are unclear. Does anyone have any insite on this kinda thing?

    Shes 19, permanent resident in Canada and wants to come to work here over the summer while living with me the entire time.

    There is something I read about having to wait 8 weeks for the paperwork to be sorted. Can she still work during that time?

    Any thoughts appreciated!

    http://www.ukresident.com/ is a good place to start :)

    edit: they also have forums with Lawyers answering questions, although not as fast response time as on here

    Ask her to contact the British Embassy in her own country, they'll tell her exactly what she needs to do.

    It cost me nothing to phone the one in Toronto (from Toronto) mind you, that was nearly 7 years ago.

    The one in Ottawa is very expensive, not sure if there is one in Toronto anymore?
