Shaping Immigration Policies in Post-Soviet Countries: Current Challenges and Developments

The AILA Global Migration Section (GMS) welcomes you to the final Quarterly Section Call of 2022—a Regional Spotlight on post-Soviet countries. The call will feature in-country experts who will discuss several key topics followed by a live Q&A.

Featured Topics

  • Key immigration developments and issues (both existing and on the horizon)
  • Existence of intercountry agreements to facilitate immigration/travel between the featured jurisdictions and any other within the region
  • Most widely used immigration processes to employ foreign workers and facilitate short-term business travel
  • Procedures for securing family reunification, including any automatic work entitlements for dependents
  • Existence of regional instability and the downstream impact on the relevant immigration systems, including exit controls applicable to the citizens of the featured jurisdictions

The expert faculty will discuss the above topics and provide updates before fielding questions from participants. Though developed for GMS members, this meeting is open to all AILA members.

Joining the GMS is easy and there is no application needed. Simply go to My AILA and click on “Update Sections” under the “My Membership” questions.
