What Is A Isle of Man Work Permit?
A work permit is an official document which allows an individual to work in a foreign country. On the Isle of Man, you may be required to apply for a Isle of Man work permit from the Government if you don’t meet certain requirements.
When you apply for a Isle of Man work permit, it’s specific to the job that you have been offered and will not be valid if you change jobs. Usually the associated costs are paid for by the employer.
A Isle of Man work permit can usually be processed in a short amount of time and usually the Government Department involved with issuing them will give an estimated timescale.

An Isle of Man worker can be:
- Someone born on the Island
