Emigration to Switzerland decreases sharply in 2016
2017-09-19
According to data from the Office Fédéral de la Statistique, in 2016 10,123 Portuguese entered into Switzerland, less 2,202 than the previous year. The official statistic department accounted for a total of 167,407 entries of foreigners in Swiss territory that year, representing the Portuguese 6% of this total. +

This was the third consecutive year that emigration into Switzerland declined significantly: -24% in 2014, -19% in 2015 and -18% in 2016. It was also the second year that, on the contrary, increased the total number of migrants entering Switzerland. Thus, this recession continued to translate into a relative loss of importance of Portuguese immigration: in 2013, the Portuguese accounted for 12% of migrants' arrivals into Switzerland, which fell to 9.4% in 2014, 7.6% in 2015 and to only 6 % in 2016.
