The life ambition for most people in third-world countries is to emigrate to a first-world country. This is because they believe that first-world countries are the land of opportunities.
When you consider the unemployment numbers and other economic indicators, you can’t fault their thinking.
In a country where a university graduate cannot get a job five years after graduation and would often settle for jobs that pay less than the minimum wage, it is understandable when people get desperate for greener pastures.
This desperation has fuelled the trans-Saharan illegal migration industry. It has resulted in 2,299 people dying while trying to cross the Mediterranean sea illegally in 2018. Reduction in international movement in 2020 helped reduce this to 1,417. However, as of June 2021, 827 migrants have died trying to cross the Mediterranean sea from Africa to Europe.
Others save up all they have, sell their properties, source donations, and even get loans to fund their trip abroad. In addition, there is a thriving fake passport and visa industry in most third-world countries.
It is not uncommon to see people deported at the point of entry for using fake particulars. However, with technology being employed, efforts like this are more likely to be futile.
After they arrive at their destination of choice, some who eventually get a visa realize that their visa type doesn’t allow them to work. So while some are hearing of a work visa for the first time, others have taken the risk, hoping to overstay their visit or even evade law enforcement.
Getting a work visa into America or an EU country is one of the most challenging things to do. From the age limit to educational qualification, work experience, and finally, proof of funds, most people fall short of one of the requirements.
To meet these requirements, you would likely have to be a part of the higher middle class, and with just a little more strategic movement, you could be in the higher economic class. In which case, you have very little need for economic migration.
Securing a remote job does not require a work visa. As long as the talent possesses the technical expertise and reliable internet connection, they can work remotely with any company, anywhere in the world.
For tech companies, this also means they don’t have to apply to sponsor their workers for a work visa. Instead, they can engage the best hands, even across continents, bringing local knowledge, international exposure, and diversity to their companies.
