Inês Vidigal
According to Statistics Norway data, in 2018 450 Portuguese entered the country. That statistical institute counted a total of 44,408 entries of foreigners in Norwegian territory, with the Portuguese representing 1% of this total. +

The downward trend seen since 2014 was interrupted in 2018, with the number of Portuguese arriving in Norway growing again (+20%), although the number of total foreign arrivals continues to decline (-10.8%). Portuguese emigration to Norway is a recent phenomenon, with a peak in 2013, following a very rapid growth since 2010. However, Portuguese emigration to Norway continues to represent a very small fraction of immigration in this country (1%).
