More than 11,000 Portuguese emigrated to Spain in 2022
Inês Vidigal
There were 11,001 Portuguese who entered Spain in 2022, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics. This Spanish agency accounted for a total of 1,258,894 foreigners entering Spain, with the Portuguese accounting for 0.9% of this total. +

The downward trend since 2019 was interrupted in 2021, when the number of Portuguese entering Spain rose again (70.1%), and in 2022 there was a slight decline (-0.1%). This figure seems to signal a trend towards stabilisation in the number of Portuguese entering Spanish territory. Over the time series under analysis, Portuguese emigration to Spain had a minimum value in 2000 (2,955 entries) and a maximum value in 2007 (27,178 entries).
