Decreasing immigration a cause for worry

Decreasing immigration a cause for worry

On April 05, 2021 | In General | By A Y & J Solicitors Last Updated : January 05, 2024

During the pandemic, there was a decrease in the immigration applications from South Africa. The recent data published by the UK’s national statistics office showed that there are many immigrants living in the country. 

A survey was conducted to see that the number of immigrants that were living in the UK, belongs to which country. The result of the survey shows South African’s rank on number 9.  About 2,29,000 people currently live in the UK. 

During the pandemic, drops have been seen in the number of immigrants across the globe and not only in the UK. The new points-based immigration system was introduced on 1st January 2021. 

There has been a decline in the number of immigrants during the year 2020. The drop has been more considerable ever, especially in the UK, due to two significant reasons: the pandemic and the Post-Brexit transition period. 

 Since World War II, foreign workers are leaving Britain at the fastest pace, presenting a challenge to an economy already roiled by Brexit and the coronavirus.

London alone has lost 700,000 people over the last year, recent research suggests. The implications are profound for the Treasury, landlords and the chances for a recovery from the worst slump in three centuries.
