When a couple decides to move in together, they have an important decision to make: who moves in with whom, or where will the new destination for both of them be? Particularly for long-distance couples, this decision has large consequences. That is, one or both partners will need to not only move house but move a long distance, which for many means moving away from family, friends, work and more. Those who move a long distance (i.e. migrate) to live with their partner are therefore likely to take a hit in their career and social network.

Miguel González-Leonardo, Michaela Potančoková, Dilek Yildiz and Francisco Rowe published a first study analysing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigration flows in a global sample of countries. They found important cross-national variations, from large drops in Australia, Spain or Sweden to minor changes in Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland or Denmark. Travel restrictions, mobility restrictions and stay-at-home requirements show an association with changes in immigration, while work and school closures and unemployment rise show no relationship.
