Germany has issued over 50,000 visas to skilled workers and trainees – through the Skilled Immigration Act – to individuals belonging to third-world countries.
The Regulation had come into force on March 1, 2020.
More than 50,000 visas have been issued, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, under the Skilled Immigration Act so far. This was recently announced by the German Ministry of the Interior, Building and Home Affairs.
In an official News, “The Skilled Immigration Act – One Year On”, dated March 1, 2021, Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer stated that, “When the Skilled Immigration Act entered into force a year ago, I said it was a milestone in Germany’s migration policy. Today the figures speak for themselves. After only one year, the Act has allowed us to successfully compete for skilled workers by providing people with a legal pathway to the German labour market.”
|According to Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs Hubertus Heil, “The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly shown how important skilled workers are for our country – in the health and care sectors, the IT sector, public utilities and many other areas.”|
Germany’s Skilled Immigration Act
As per a Report – “A Cross-cutting View of Demographic Policy Résumé” by the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community at the end of the 19th legislative period – “Even though immigration from non-European countries has often been the focus of attention in recent years, the vast majority of immigrants to Germany came from Europe, except for the years 2015 and 2016…. A net total of 2.6 million people moved to Germany from European countries, including around 2.2 million from the EU. Almost 1.7 million net immigrants came from Asia and a good 300,000 from Africa.”
