In order of evolution, people began to migrate in search of better lives.The expansion in international trade and transport facilitated the process of migration abroad. The emerging development trends in line with globalization of economy expanded the ways for international migration. In the recent times, foreign employment has become greater force of development for both sending and receiving countries. The migration has, therefore, become a common human behavior today. The main causes of migration comprises armed conflict, better livelihood, calamity, discrimination, economy, education, environmental effects, ethnic problems, disease, fear, violence, social security and so on. The countries in the Asia Pace region fall under the category of either sending or receiving migrant workers. South Asian countries namely Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are sending large number of workers abroad. Currently, Nepal alone contributes with estimated three million male and female workers to the international job market.
