Portuguese emigration to Denmark reaches new record in 2021
Inês Vidigal
According to data from Denmark Statistik, 1,609 Portuguese people entered Denmark in 2021. This Danish institution counted a total of 73,274 entries of foreigners in the country, with the Portuguese representing 2.2% of that total. +

Despite the restrictions on movement imposed by the pandemic during the last two years, the number of Portuguese who entered Danish territory reached a new high for this century, for the second year in a row. From 2019 to 2020 there was an increase of 13.6% and from 2020 to 2021 the growth was 66.2%. Despite this evolution, Portuguese emigration to Denmark continues to represent a very small fraction of both immigration to this country (2.2%) and total Portuguese emigration (around 1%).
