Portuguese inflows into France reach new low in 2018
Inês Vidigal
In 2018, 8,055 Portuguese entered France, according to data from the new series provided to the Observatory by the Institut National de la Statistique et de Études Économiques. This figure represents a decrease of 3.1% when compared with the previous year. +

After a maximum of 19,658 entries on French territory in 2012, the number of Portuguese emigrants to France has been decreasing: -4% in 2013, -22% in 2014 and less -21% in 2015. Despite a slight recovery in 2016 (+7%), a new phase of decrease began in 2017 and continued in the following year (-32.8% in 2017 and -3.1% in 2018). Therefore, 2018 was the year in which fewer Portuguese entered that country in the current decade. Inflows into France seem to have followed the general trend of Portuguese emigration flows.
