Visitors thinking about taking on paid employment while in St. Lucia need to organise a work permit. The process, which is carried out by the St. Lucia UK High Commission, is relatively simple. However, it is worth remembering that you will need someone from St. Lucia to sign one of the forms for you. It is also essential to know when the job will begin, as applications must be submitted two months before starting work. There is also a small fee to pay.
