Restricted occupations

If you are a PLOC holder, you cannot work in certain restricted occupations.

PLOC holders are not allowed to work in restricted occupations such as:

  • Journalist
  • Editor
  • Producer
  • any religion-related occupation.

See the full list of restricted occupations.

If you are an LTVP/LTVP+ holder applying for any of these restricted occupations, your prospective employer must apply for a Letter of Consent (LOC) instead.
