Portuguese inflow into the Netherlands declined for the second consecutive year
2016-07-05
In the Netherlands 1,860 Portuguese entered in 2015, according to data from the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek. That Dutch organization counted a total of 174,733 foreign entries in the Netherlands, with the Portuguese representing 1.1% of this total. +

Since 2000, the number of Portuguese entries in the Netherlands has been variable. From 2000 to 2001, there was an increase in the number of entries, followed by a decrease until 2005, when the minimum value was registered in the series under analysis, with 830 Portuguese entering Dutch territory. There was a further increase of Portuguese entries between 2006 and 2008, more pronounced, and a new decrease between 2009 and 2011, similar to that of emigration to other countries in the context of the global financial crisis. In 2012 and 2013 there was a resumption of growth, reaching the highest values in the series under analysis: more than 2,000 Portuguese entries each year. From 2014, the data show a very slight decline in 2015, with inflows in the Netherlands to around 1,800 Portuguese per year.
The Netherlands is the tenth country where most Portuguese emigrate.
