Inês Vidigal
There were 765 Portuguese who entered Denmark in 2018, according to Denmark Statistik data. That Danish agency accounted for a total of 83,955 entries of foreigners in Denmark, and the Portuguese represented 0.9% of that total. +

In 2018, Portuguese emigration to Denmark increased significantly (+ 19%), reaching the second highest value in the series under analysis, after having stabilized at a level of slight decline between 2016 and 2017. The interruption of the growth of Portuguese emigration to Denmark has accompanied the overall decline in inflow into this country after a period of sharp growth between 2013 and 2015. This was also the period of greatest absolute and relative growth of Portuguese emigration to Denmark, which had already been accentuated since 2011, with a peak of 938 Portuguese entries into that country in 2015.
