As Covid’s stranglehold on international movement continues to weaken, new and growing categories of immigrants are settling near tech and business hubs like New York; which New Jersey’s Bergen County is poised to benefit from. With the assistance of experienced immigration attorneys, like Leann Stanick at Stanick Law LLC, workers in tech or other booming business and investment sectors are arriving in ever greater numbers.
Bergen’s county population fell in 2021, for the first time in the last few decades, and Covid, as usual, is undoubtedly to blame. While some of that change can be attributed to mortality and people moving away from the big city, a large part can also be attributed to a steep slump in immigration that affected New Jersey and the rest of the country.
Now, however, those numbers are finally starting to rise again. While all sources of immigration are picking up, some are rising faster than others, notably skilled employment and investor immigration.
High skills immigrants have always been at the heart of American success and excellence, and the rates at which new arrivals are being drawn in by booming economies like New York City’s only seem to be accelerating.
Yet another immigration category that appears to have recovered robustly is investment migration, where those willing and able to invest capital in US businesses and enterprises are given visas to do so. A sector that could prove particularly promising for New Jersey and Bergen County.
