Portuguese emigration to Sweden peaks in 2018
Inês Vidigal
According to Statistics Sweden, 427 Portuguese entered Sweden in 2018. This Swedish organisation accounted for a total of 132,602 entries of foreigners in Sweden, with the Portuguese accounting for 0.3% of this total. +

For the ninth consecutive year, the number of Portuguese arriving in Sweden increased. This increase was of 9.5%, with the number of Portuguese emigrants entering Sweden in 2018 representing the highest value of this century, while the number of total foreigners entering that country fell for the second consecutive year (-8.2%). However, Portuguese emigration to Sweden continues to represent a very small fraction of both immigration into this country (0.3%) and total Portuguese emigration (less than 1%).
