The article aims at answering three questions regarding the impact of COVID-19 on migration. Based on the assumption that what is currently relevant for analysis are the initial reactions of governments, host societies, and immigrants to the pandemic, they are the first to be analyzed. Due to their nature and interdependence, the question of how political decisions, the labor market, and the violence experienced by migrants are interrelated becomes legitimate. While answering these questions, consideration is also given to how the discussed reactions can be considered positive or negative for the migration processes. The article focuses on the territory of Europe, although for comparative purposes, the perspective of African, Asian, and South American countries is also included.
