Many countries now encourage immigration by workers with particular skills, including IT skills. Every industry now requires workers with excellent IT skills for jobs at all levels. As a result, many companies are failing to recruit the IT professionals they need, and countries are actively inviting immigrants to move to their countries and take up these jobs. 

IT Skills in DemandWhat is skilled immigration?

IT skills are in great demand in many countries, and as a result software engineers, computer programmers, analysts, software testers and other IT professionals can often get a visa quickly and easily.
