Inês Vidigal
According to data from the Portail des Statistiques du Luxembourg, 3,633 Portuguese entered the country in 2022. The statistical office accounted for a total of 31,433 entries of foreigners into Luxembourg territory, with the Portuguese accounting for 11.6% of this total. +

After an increase in the number of Portuguese entries in Luxembourg in 2021, in 2022 there is a decrease (-6.5%). However, despite the reduction, Portugal is the main country of origin of emigration in Luxembourg. Between 2000 and 2022, the number of Portuguese inflows into Luxembourg was minimal in 2000 (2.193 entries) and maximum in 2012 (5.193 entries). With the drop in 2022, the loss of relative importance of Portuguese immigration in Luxembourg continues to increase: between 2003 and 2022, the number of Portuguese inflows into Luxembourg went from over 29% of the total number of foreign migrants to 12%.
