Immigration post COVID – What does it mean for People overseas or those looking to immigrate abroad?


Will COVID 19 exacerbate the sitch for immigrants worldwide? The recent pandemic has changed human mobility for those of us washing our hands vigorously and avoiding social contact. Amidst the chaos, SpeakIn has invited some of the finest experts who can acquaint us with the current situation of the “refugees” caught in this battle and engage us in discussing what it means for students and professionals who are already overseas or plan to immigrate abroad.

In addition to these disruptions to daily life, the pandemic could be fundamentally changing the face of global migration in various ways. Not everyone wants to leave home, of course, but many see immigration as at least one future pathway with the hopes to one day return home. In many ways, the global economy also relies on people making decisions to immigrate: Central American tomato pickers in Florida, Bangladeshi construction workers in Abu Dhabi, and Indian entrepreneurs in Melbourne. Global immigration has proven to be an integral and necessary part of our globalized economy, though its face has looked different in every region, country, and city, as well as to each family. Until COVID-19 brought it all to a screeching halt. What are we staring at?

With the uncertainty around the reopening of closed borders and all travel services being halted for the moment, it is difficult to say what decisions will professionals and students make in the near future. Would they still want to pack bags and immigrate abroad or be in their own homeland in case such a crisis arises again? Well, COVID has definitely changed the health and economic affairs worldwide. Should we expect more restrictions globally for immigrants or will the nations ease these policies to revive the global conditions?
