About the Committee

The Immigration and Nationality Law Committee is concerned with all aspects of immigration and nationality law on a worldwide basis, including business-related immigration, family reunion policies, refugees and compassionate cases.

The Committee aims to provide a forum for the discussion of comparative data on immigration and nationality policies of countries worldwide.

The mission and focus of the committee is to provide a platform for lawyers practising immigration laws to receive input and update about the immigration laws of their country and also immigration laws and procedures of other jurisdictions. We achieve this by holding annual conferences and presentation of papers, newsletters and providing other online resources to enhance the knowledge of its member in multiple jurisdictions.

Australia: post-pandemic and beyond

The Covid-19 pandemic transformed the world. How we live and how we work was greatly altered. In comparison to other countries, Australia managed to provide a great response to the pandemic with limited infections and fatalities. One of the most significant changes due to the pandemic was and continues to be the unprecedented closure of Australian borders, an evident reason for Australia’s success.

Germany: post-pandemic and beyond

Germany has seen practical pandemic-era changes to immigration rules as well as legal ones. Due to the (partial) border closures, employment migration has become more complex and thus increasingly complicated. While in the past immigration eligibility depended on the nationality and professional training of the candidate and the type of occupation aimed for in Germany, we now have to take the country of departure into account.

India: post-pandemic and beyond
