We study, analytically and numerically, reflection and transmission of an arbitrarily polarized vortex beam on an interface separating two dielectric media and derive general expressions for linear and angular Goos–Hänchen (GH) and Imbert–Fedorov shifts. We predict a novel vortex-induced GH shift and also reveal a direct connection between the spin-induced angular shifts and the vortex-induced linear shifts.
