Foreign population of Belgium in 2017, by origin

Foreign population of Belgium in 2017, by origin This statistic shows the foreign population of Belgium in 2017, by origin. The majority of the foreign population in Belgium had their origin in France, Italy or the Netherlands. On January 1, 2017, about 164,000 foreigners in Belgium had the French nationality, roughly 157,000 had the Italian nationality, and approximately 154,000 had the Dutch nationality. In neighboring Luxembourg, Portuguese formed the largest group of foreigners, as shows this statistic on the number of foreigners in Luxembourg by nationality. Approximately 97,000 Portuguese live in Luxembourg, much higher as the number of Portuguese living in Belgium, even though Belgium's number of inhabitants is much higher than Luxembourg's. The French and the Italian are well-represented in Luxembourg as well, but those communities are much smaller than in Belgium, with roughly 44,000 French and 21,000 Italians living in Luxembourg.
