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.”
