Immigration country fact: Germany is home for a little over 1% of the world population. The fact that so many immigrants move to Germany used to be seen as a burden – now it turns out to be a blessing. Thanks to the small numbers of children per woman in Germany we now need up to 6.5 million skilled immigrants until 2025.
Top Immigration Country
The top immigration countries compete for the most talented immigrants worldwide. That’s why Germany makes it super easy for skilled immigrants to get a Jobseeker Visa Germany. Even though many citizens don’t realise this: Without immigration we would all be worse off.
The top immigration countries benefit from way higher innovation and also have more startups that create English jobs.
