Do the benefits of temporary worker programs—work permits and visas designed to attract skilled migrants for a fixed period of time—outweigh their costs? This chapter explores the political and assimilative ramifications of temporary admission by focusing on the experience of Indian migrants in three countries—the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. For high-skilled Indian migrants, the United States remains the top destination. However, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands have become more competitive with the United States as newly flexible programs are implemented. Both countries have also issued more work permits to high-skilled Indian migrants, suggesting an increase in economic opportunities for them. Even so, the underlying benefit and cost calculations of potential Indian migrants may be changing as economic growth in India may reduce future flows of temporary migrants.
