Portuguese inflow into Austria increased again in 2018
Inês Vidigal
In 2018, 674 Portuguese entered Austria, according to Statistics Austria data. That Austrian agency accounted for a total of 131,724 entries of foreigners in the country, with the Portuguese accounting for only 0.5% of immigration in that year. +

In 2017 and 2018, Portuguese emigration to Austria grew by 10.2% and 9.1%, respectively. This growth counters the downward trend in the number of foreigners entering Austrian territory in those two years. Over the time series under analysis (2002-2018), the number of Portuguese entering Austria had a minimum value in 2004 (266 entries) and a maximum value in 2013 (878 entries). In relative terms, Portuguese emigration to Austria continues to represent a very small fraction of immigration in this country (0.5%), as well as of total Portuguese emigration (less than 1%).
