Net migration in Hungary 2006-2018

This timeline illustrates the net migration (the difference between immigration and emigration) in Hungary, from 2006 to 2018, as annual figures. Over the time period observed, the number of immigrants exceeded the number of those leaving the country. The net migration ranged from 4,277 persons in 2013 to 34,759 persons in 2018.

Illegal immigration to Hungary

Hungary’s strict asylum policy which detained large numbers of fist-time asylum seekers arriving from conflict zones gave way to the increasing number of illegal immigrants in 2015. In the same year, almost 12 thousand third country nationals were found to be illegally present in Hungary. This represented an increase of almost 100 percent compared to 2014. When it comes to Hungarians’ opinion on the topic, as of March 2020, over two-thirds of the population found illegal immigration a concerning issue.

Emigration from Hungary

Average salaries, the cost of living, and the lack of job opportunities led to thousands of Hungarians leaving the country each year. Their primary destinations were other member states of the European Union. Specifically, in 2019, almost 200 thousand Hungarians resided in Germany, another 83 thousand in Austria, and 78 thousand in the United Kingdom.
