2021 Immigration Trends Report

Last Updated on March 2, 2023

2020 was an unprecedented year for immigration and mobility. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in swift border closures, lockdown orders, economic slowdowns, as well as a bevy of immigration restrictions, creating uncertainties for employers and foreign talent alike. 

Against this backdrop, we asked more than 500 HR professionals and hiring managers what they learned, the immigration reforms they’d like addressed and their expectations for immigration and mobility in a post-pandemic world. What we learned is that even amid sweeping change, the need for global talent persists, and both U.S. immigration and outbound travel will be imperative to employers as we rebuild our economy post-pandemic.
