Emigration growth to Italy slows in 2017
Inês Vidigal
According to Eurostat data, 465 Portuguese entered Italy in 2017. That European agency accounted for a total of 343,440 entries of foreigners in Italy, with the Portuguese accounting for only 0.1% of that total. +

After a sharp increase in the number of Portuguese entries into Italian territory in 2016, of +25.1%, there was a slowdown in 2017, with the growth in these entries standing at 5%, about a third of the variation in the total number of new foreign entries in that country. Portuguese emigration to Italy has oscillated annually over the time series under analysis, with 2002 being the year with the lowest number of new arrivals (297), and 2007 the year with the highest number of new arrivals (594). However, Portuguese emigration to Italy continues to represent a very small fraction of both immigration in this country (0.1%) and total Portuguese emigration (less than 1%).
