Global Migration During COVID-19

Global Migration During COVID-19

Global migration has ground to a halt as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Embassies and consulates remain closed. Travel restrictions rest with those based in countries ranging from China to the UK, and the Trump Administration, through executive order, is further limiting legal migration to the US. Left with many questions are foreign nationals around the world facing the loss or furlough of work and employers balancing the needs of businesses and the want to assist their foreign national staff. Pragmatic solutions in a changing landscape are hard to find, but understanding the nuances of migration patterns during a pandemic will help guide those that need help the most during this trying time.

Hear from immigration experts in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and the E.U. as they review the current state of immigration law in each jurisdiction and what can be expected in the future as workers return to the office. Labor and employment lawyers will gain an ability to better guide corporate clients as well as foreign national workers.
