Abstract

Highly educated and skilled individuals from India tend to migrate to Western nations in the hope of better employment prospects - particularly those that are English speaking. Many middle-class affluent Indians have a strong desire to climb the financial ladder, and believe that this can only be achieved through working in another country. The position of Indian migrants in host countries is often compromised. Their status is often reduced from upper- or middle-class in India to working class migrants in the destination country. The first barrier they encounter when they arrive in a new country is the high living costs, and depending on their visa status, may or may not have access to welfare benefits (Rutten and Verstappen, 2015).
