Want to know the 3 reasons to start your immigration process NOW – despite everyone else saying it’s a bad idea…?

Yes, I know that borders are closed, and visa applications are suspended for immigrants in most countries.

Now that the world is in turmoil, may people who were planning to start their immigration process to a new and better life for their families, have put their plans on hold completely.

It is the biggest mistake you can make.

If you want my hand-holding assistance to start your immigration process, starting now – book a Strategy Session with me, and we can start this together, with a long term view, to prepare you for the coming jobs boom.

During these tough times the world and immigration rules are changing by the day.

It is hard to keep up, and many of these regulations, rules and circumstances for immigrants have become harder, due to the border closures, travel restrictions and economic uncertainty.

However, if you are going to stop or slow down your immigration process, you will be doing yourself a disservice and potential ruin your whole chance at success, and here is why:

Here are the bigger processes you must take to immigrate successfully, it is non-negotiable.

Bigger Immigration Processes and Timeline

Now, people who will do NOTHING now, will fail in their immigration process, and here is why:

1. Time – The Biggest Factor In Your Immigration Process

Immigration process takes a long time.

I mean, a long, long time.

The processes of researching your final destination country, doing eligibility checks, getting qualifications assessments done and documents ready, takes at least 6 – 9 months – anywhere in the word.

Then, you are at step 3 of 6 overall steps of the bigger immigration process.

Then, you can start your job search process.

That alone, in this economic uncertain world, will take you 6 months to a year – IF done correctly.

If not, it can take longer.

Why – because that is the time it has taken the vast majority of people which I have worked with recently.

We enrolled 138 people in our VIP Program in the last 14 months, 97 people have found their jobs with our program, but for the vast majority, just to find their overseas jobs, has taken at least 6 – 9 months.

So, in total, you are looking at a total time spent on these processes of 1 months to 2 years.

I bet you in 2 years from now, if you start then, it will be too late.

So, you should take a long-term view, and start preparing now.

Yes, I know that you think you cannot get anywhere right now, but forget about a quick and easy process, it is longer and tougher now.

You better start early.

2. Competition

When the borders open in some way and people can travel again, or want immigrant workers, there will be a rush to the gates.

In fact, there will be a herd – a crowd who will want to get out of countries where the wheels have come off the economy now, worse than ever before and people need to get out.

It is what history has taught us: People move to better places when things get hard in their own country. Right now, we are in the thick of a tough storm, and many countries will not be so nice after this crisis. Although they did ok before this, people will want to move after this.

For example, the same happened in Europe after the 1st and 2nd World Wars.

That is when the majority of people moved to the Americas and some upcoming countries in Africa and elsewhere.

It is going to happen again, although from many other countries now.

It will mean more competition for you then.

The job search process and immigration process will sort out the best of the best, AND it will favour those who are already done with their preparation.

Job search preparation for immigrants is much bigger than just a CV and take much longer.

A big part of the job search and immigration process is building a network overseas and becoming visible to them.

To build that network and visibility takes a lot of time and a lot of work.

Those who start then with their immigration process, will be too late.

Unemployment will be up in nice countries too, and less immigrants will be allowed – raising the bar for you too. More competition and tougher standards.

You better start preparing now to not just beat the herd, but also upskill during the next 12 – 18 months as best as you can.

3. Information

You need more information than ever before.

You need much more time to do that research than ever before.

Especially for the job search phase.

Right now, things are fluid in your destination country too.

Business are going to close, others are going to form, things are changing rapidly.

You need to know what is going on, on the ground far better than ever before.

You need to know who is hiring when things fire up again, and already be in their pool by now – already prepared and eligible.

There is no time for official figures to catch up – you need that information from people.

Those people will be in your network and audience which you need to build right now – and stay in contact with them to gather information, become known and trusted and increase your chances of being hired when the time comes.

Employers will not be advertising. They are bleeding financially now too.

Advertising for jobs is the first cost they will cut. They will go to their pool for candidates when the time comes, they win contracts and tenders and need to move fast to get it up and running.

    1. Hi Richard,

      Yes, you may qualify.

      The first step would be to complete a full eligibility test and skills assessment via a licenced immigration adviser.
