Weizmann Info Services Pvt Ltd relations between India and foreign countries have not only helped the Indian economy but also paved pathways for immigration.

India's skilled workers with good work experience and the ability to meet the skilled labour needs of these countries are being welcomed with open arms. This eventually led to a rapid rise in the interest of immigration. What is immigration?

The process of moving from one country to another country is termed as immigration.

Immigration is generally opted by people who want to move to a foreign land and settle for the long-term in the selected nation. When people immigrate to other nations, they usually gain a status of permanent residency and are termed as either permanent residents or immigrants.

Often immigration is confused with emigration, which is also a component of the migration process. While immigration primarily means entering a new country, emigration means leaving home country.

What’s the similarity between immigration and emigration?

  • Both emigration and immigration are components of migration, which means to move or travel to another country.
  • Both aspects usually result in permanent settlement in a foreign country.
  • The acts and related process are protected by immigration laws of the selected country and monitored by Immigration and Emigration Departments of the respective country.
  • What are the minimum requirements to immigrate?

    Every country has its own requirements for immigration. However, the common among all is the need to overcome the shortage of skills supply. International countries invite skilled workers primarily because they are unable to overcome the labour market challenges with the domestic. Moreover, the low birth rate and fast-paced retiring of existing workers is an equal challenge. Therefore foreign countries commonly look for the below aspects when considering your immigration:

  • Young age: You should be of a young age so that you can be of an economic benefit to a foreign country for a long time.
  • Education: It is important that you are educated. Most foreign countries seek Bachelor degree holders or higher qualified candidates for permanent residency status.
  • Work Experience: You must hold work experience in an occupation that has a high demand in the applying country. It is very rare (unless you have foreign education factors) that you may qualify for immigration without work experience.
  • Language proficiency: The English language is a core factor foreign country look into when inviting immigration. As skilled workers are invited to work and support economic development, it is important that they are able to communicate with the English natives easily. Hence, prospective immigrants are asked to attempt an officially approved English assessment and reach a standard score.
  • Good health: It is equally important that the immigrant does not bring any medical threat to the nation nor proves to be a burden on the country’s healthcare system.
  • That is why the applying immigrant is asked to submit a medical certificate before he can get an immigration entry into the selected country. Also, his family members (irrespective of whether they are migrating or not) are also asked to undergo medicals and prove health conditions.
  • Moral Character: Immigrants are required to obtain permanent residency status on legal grounds. If the authorities sense any kind of threat or criminal concerns associated with the applicant, he may be permanently banned from applying for immigration. In order to support legal entry and no criminal history record, applicants are required to submit a police clearance certificate.
  • Sufficient funds: Immigrants must be able to manage their stay on their own. Irrespective of whether they have a job or not, they must be financially stable.
  • That is why they are asked to show sufficient funds before their immigration application is accepted. They must not be a financial burden to the country they migrate.

    Along with meeting these requirements, immigrants are also required to meet score criteria (if applicable), application submission criteria, and health insurance criteria and submit all required documents accordingly.

    If they fail to do so, they may either be accused of crossing the border illegally or termed as undocumented immigrants or unauthorized immigrants. This eventually leads to a permanent ban of entry into the selected country.
