In 2020, WES conducted a series of surveys of individuals who had applied for a WES academic credential evaluation for immigration purposes. Our goal was to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigration plans. In August 2021, WES repeated the survey to compare responses and determine what had changed in light of the evolving pandemic context. This report compares findings from the August 2020 survey to the August 2021 survey.
