For those who are wealthy enough, there's no problem for them to live or migrate to anywhere on earth, as they are most welcomed by the authority of most countries in the world. Unfortunately for the majority of the human beings who are not that wealthy, who have no choice but need to be making a living (working) to survive in life, would be discriminated and non-welcomed by the authority of many countries in the world.
Many honest, talented, skillful and hardworking people in the world might not be highly educated or certified, due to poverty or some other unfortunate circumstances, where they are facing difficulty of making a living in their own birth country, not to say, to be 'eligible' or 'qualified' to migrate somewhere else, but that doesn't mean that they are less good human beings, or should be disqualified to be residing and making a living on earth. Unfortunately, they are the ones who are being discriminated 'lawfully' due to their 'low financial status' and 'non-certification' or 'low educational level' due to life condition is already being difficult for them.
In the modern world of civilization, if the government policy of a country run by wise and kind people that is trying to help all human beings to have an easier and better quality of life, that's great. Unfortunately, that's not the case in some countries, where the government policy of the country run by not so wise and not so kind people that is actually trying their best to make human beings' life as complicated as possible.
Government body is supposed to be an organization that serves the community by facilitating everything to make life easier for everyone, however, discriminative government policy in certain countries are deliberately generating lots of complication to make people's life more difficult, where many law obeying people who have no intention to do anything that go against the law, and only want to live and making a living 'legally' in a particular country, have to go through many unnecessary difficulties deriving from the complicated documentation procedures of a government policy that legally discriminating and tormenting human beings by their 'nationality', 'financial status', 'social status', 'health status', 'title', 'educational level', 'certification', 'qualification', and etc, or even by 'ethnicity' and 'religion' in certain countries.
The pandemic is affecting many people's life and livelihood, but life has to go on for everyone, where people still need to go through complicated legal documentation procedure to live somewhere and making a living legally in a modern world of civilization.
For some people who have no choice but have to deal with renewing legal documentation every year for residing and making a living in a particular country, especially in a country running by a government that doesn't really intend to help making people's life easier, but deliberately creating lots of complicated procedures with many difficult rules and regulations to make people's life as difficult as possible, the circumstances deriving from the current pandemic situation is making everything even harder for them.
Those who don't need to deal with yearly renewal of legal documentation to be residing and making a living in a particular place on earth, they might not be able to understand the difficulty that some other people have to deal with for just trying to survive and live a life on earth, who are reluctantly don't want to be 'criminalized/penalized/imprisoned' just by existing in a space in the universe that doesn't really belong to anyone, but was being claimed ownership and authorization by some human beings to lawfully 'allow' and 'disallow' human beings for being existing, residing and making a living somewhere on earth.
People might think that being a citizen of one's birth country wouldn't need to go through all those hassles of complicated legal documentation procedures, but in some countries, being married to someone who is a citizen of another country, one will have to go through a painful process every year due to the government policy that doesn't welcome or support 'International mixed marriage' and deliberately making people's life extremely difficult, especially when the government policy is generating 'discrimination' towards many different things in order to determine who is 'eligible' or 'qualified' enough, and who is 'non-eligible' and 'unqualified' for being existing, residing and making a living in that country.
In order to apply for a 'permission to reside in this country' for the non-citizen spouse of the citizen of this country that only valid for one year, the citizen of this country needs to have proof of sufficient income to 'sponsor' the spouse, as the spouse is not allowed to work at all in this country (even if it's not something illegal or wrongful,) even though the spouse is being given the 'permission to reside in this country' that need to be re-applying from scratch every year with all kinds of supportive documentations. And if for any reasons, one didn't get to re-apply for the 'permission to reside in this country' on time before the due date, one will be penalized for over stay without permission, as well as facing the risk of 'imprisonment' or 'deportation'.
In order to apply for an additional 'permission to work' under the 'permission to reside in this country', there are even more supportive documents that are compulsory for the application procedure. And even if the 'permission to work' is being granted by the authority after submitting all kinds of compulsory supportive documents, the spouse is limited only to do that specific work with specific details of the work, at the specific space of a specific address of a specific company, or else, it's violating the law and will be criminalized and penalized under the law.
Free-lancing and self-employment that getting works from different companies/people, are invalid to be eligible for applying the 'permission to work', where it has to be one specific kind of work under employment with a contract under one specific registered company of a specific address with commercial title, where registered company under a home address with residential title for those who only need to be working from home or anywhere while travelling, who don't need to be working at a specific address/building/office, such as a digital nomad, is not possible for getting the 'permission to work', as the authority won't even process the application for 'permission to work'.
This is because the application procedure requires either a 'business license' or a letter of 'needless of a business license for the type of work' from another government department, and 'business license' or the letter of 'needless of a business license for the type of work' will not be issued to a residential address, even if the type of work doesn't require a 'business license' to be operating. Those who have an office space within a building under commercial title can attain the letter of 'needless of a business license for the type of work', but it cannot be issued for an address under residential title for those who don't need a commercial office. It means, one has to spend unnecessary expenses on renting an office space that one doesn't use in order to attain the letter of 'needless of a business license for the type of work', in order to apply for the 'permission to work', just because the authority of the country is run by a group of close-minded human beings. When someone wants to apply for the 'permission to work' under the 'yearly permission to reside in this country that doesn't allow to work' as a non-citizen spouse of the citizen of this country, the officer asks, "Why? You want to work ah?" and then, "We know your work doesn't need a business license, but we won't process your application because we need either a 'business license' or the letter of 'needless of a business license for the type of work', and we know you can't and won't get the letter of 'needless of a business license for the type of work' because your address is not under commercial title."
The more ridiculous thing is that even though they know from the very beginning that it's not possible for anyone to attain a letter of 'needless of business license for the type of work' under a residential address, they didn't inform the people but deliberately telling the people to go to that particular licensing department to request for that letter, wasting the people's time, energy, effort and money. It's also wasting unnecessary time and effort of those involved in the respective department. "We know you are working from home right? We know your work also doesn't require a business license. You need to go to the licensing department and ask for a letter of needless of a business license for the type of work." And when the people came back to this department telling them that they couldn't attain that letter because it's not possible for a residential address, they said to the people, "We know." Why? Do they feel good for creating difficulty to the people? Government is supposed to be an organization that looks after the welfare of the people and facilitates convenient and efficient services and supports to the people to help to improve the quality of life of the people, but a government run by corrupted human beings is tormenting people by deliberately creating inconvenient complications to the people.
It's like, "We don't care about you. The government doesn't welcome you. But we, the government don't want to say that, directly. We just need to create lots of difficulties to you, and it's up to you whether you want to stay because you love this country so much, and pay us the fees for all kinds of documentation procedure, or go somewhere else if you think this is too difficult for you."
Regardless of whether one is reluctantly and autonomously being illegal for trying to earn some income for living without any 'permission to work', and one is being vulnerable towards facing prosecution and being exploited/bullied by unkind human beings, or one is being legalized with the 'permission to work' but then one is being restricted to one particular type of work under a specific company at that specific address, where engaging in other types of (lawful) work other than the one being applied for the 'permission to work' or any other form of lawful part-time income/paid-work activity beyond the one being stated in the 'permission to work' is considered 'illegal' and subject to 'prosecution', one is still living under the legal threat of being prosecuted, criminalized and penalized or be imprisoned/expelled at any time.
For some people, one type of work might not generate enough income for living and have no choice but need to be engaging in several types of work to be making enough livelihood. Or, there are people with multi talents and enthusiasm who can do so many different things in life, but would only be legalized and allowed to do 'one specific work under a specific company' to make a living in this country. Many financial problems, relationship problems, family problems, and mental health problems are building up unwittingly due to such government policy of deliberately restricting, oppressing, threatening and tormenting people under the name of 'facilitating the law and order of the country'.
The citizen of this country couldn't make sufficient or any income due to the pandemic and lockdown, but the non-citizen spouse can bring in some income by doing some works to be supporting their living, which also can provide 'the eligible financial status of sponsorship' as part of the 'compulsory supportive documentation' for applying the 'permission to reside in this country', but then the non-citizen spouse is not allowed to work under that ridiculous rules and regulations of 'non-permission to work' that comes under the 'permission to reside in this country' being the spouse to the citizen of this country.
The citizen of this country would have 'sufficient income status' to 'sponsor' the spouse to get the 'permission to reside in this country', if the spouse is allowed to work legally in this country, but the spouse wouldn't even be eligible to apply for the 'permission to reside in this country' because the citizen of this country couldn't provide 'the eligible financial status' that is required to be 'qualified' for 'sponsoring' the spouse due to the pandemic and lockdown, or due to some other reasons (illness, injury, or old age), and the spouse is not allowed to work or generate income.
Even after the spouse successfully getting the 'permission to reside in this country' that only valid for one year, but in order to apply for the 'permission to work', the spouse must be eligible/qualified by possessing a minimum level of educational certification and some other supportive work qualifications, which creates great difficulty for those who are not highly educated or certified, even if the spouse is a law abiding, honest, kind and hardworking person with many years of experience in doing something or many things.
Discriminative government policy are forcing people who don't want to do anything bad and wrong or illegal to reluctantly become 'illegal/criminalized' due to 'non-approval status' from the authority and have no choice but being 'committed' in 'illegal activity' (working hard trying to earn some honest money for living but without authorized legal documentation), for just trying to survive, to be making a living, to be existing and living in this space.
How ridiculous is that, even when the 'rightful' citizen of the country has successfully obtained legal licensing to be doing a small business in the country, is being threatened legally to bear all cost to demolish the rented building for doing the business under the authorized licensing, and to pay whatever compensation to the landlord for demolishing the rented building as ordered by the authority according to the rules and regulations, upon the termination of the business (or cancellation of the building permit for the business license) regardless of whether the business is being terminated by the business owner who wants to stop doing business, or it's terminated by the authority that wants to stop renewing the building permit for the business license for any reasons.
Rightful citizen of a country, or not, it's so complicated to live a life under the name of civilization. Those who are wealthy and are enjoying the privilege of being wealthy, might not agree with this. That's their freedom.
Everyone have no choice but need to be legalized to live a life and do things legally in a so called civilized country, however, it can be so complicated and troublesome, and people have to be living under 'threat' legally even after being legalized.
It's not a crime for being simple and want to live a simple honest life.
It's not a crime for being poor under difficult condition.
It's not a crime for not being highly educated.
It's not a crime for being married to and sharing life with someone of other nationality.
But why punishing and tormenting the simple minded people who want to live a simple honest life, the poor people who are in difficult condition, the non educated or low educated people, and the international loving couples under the name of civilization? Is it because they are less or non contributing to the economy of the country (paying less tax than the others)? Or, is it because the authority reluctant to 'look after' those who need certain assistance from the authority?
If that's the reason, and if the 'money minded' authority really want more people to become eligible for contributing more to the economy, and less depending on getting any form of assistance from the authority, then the authority should make everything easier for these low income or low educated people to be able to 'work' or 'do business' to have higher income, to facilitate more convenience for everyone to have the opportunity to become independent in all aspects, and it's not by discriminating and punishing these simple minded, low income or low educated people who try to live a simple life and make enough honest income for living, legally.
If their reason for making international mixed marriage difficult is due to there are some cases of fake marriage for getting legalized documentation, and they want to punish those fake marriage couples, but why are they punishing everyone else who are not faking marriage?
If their reason for making international mixed marriage so difficult is due to they want to stop internal corruption activity coming from their respective department that deals with facilitating legal documentation for international mixed marriage, but then why are they tormenting everyone else who are merely loving couple that want to share life together, who are not and don't want to get involved with any corruption or illegal activity?
These are the unnecessary difficulties and tormentation created by human beings under the name of civilization deriving from ignorance that all humans who need to survive by making a living 'legally' need to deal with for just being existing in a space in the universe, especially in certain countries with an authority run by a group of close-minded human beings. It's even more difficult under the pandemic that would go on for years. Those who don't need to go through all kinds of 'complicated legal documentation procedure' under an authority run by close-minded human beings, or their authority is run by a group of open-minded human beings, they won't need to deal with such difficulty.
