Countries relax immigration norms to accommodate Indian immigrants
Chandigarh, June 29: The economic slowdown, that threatens to shake the very foundation of developed nations of the world, has failed to leave even a trace of impact on Indian immigration industry. With developed nations ageing at a rapid pace, which is projected to continue till 2025, young India stands as a treasure of human resources.
Lt Col BS Sandhu (Retd), Chairman & Managing Director (CMD), WWICS, World Wide Immigration Consultancy Services says that Global immigration is making waves as developed nations deal with aging populations and impending labor shortages.

Post-landing services remain USP of WWICS.

Many employers and corporate houses have projected their demand for employees. Also many WWICS clients get confirmed job offer prior to getting visa”, says Col Sandhu.
Col. Sandhu adds that Canada and Australia are improving their immigration policies to respond to needs of employers and potential immigrants.

As far as Canadian immigration is concerned, one could also qualify for Permanent Residency with the help of Arranged Employment Opinion or the Canadian Experience Class. Being the best country for quality education in the world, Canada continues to attract international students pursuing careers in almost all disciplines. WWICS with its excellent networking with top education institutes has been helping the students from all over the world to seek admissions in Canada.
