Number of foreign inhabitants in Iceland 2018, by country Where did the foreign citizens living in Iceland come from? Within the foreign inhabitants living in Iceland in 2018, the biggest share originated from Poland. That year, about 17 thousand Polish citizens lived in Iceland. The second and third biggest groups of immigrants were from Denmark and Lithuania, followed by United States and Sweden. However, considering the number of newcomers migrating to Iceland in 2018, the ranking was to some extent different; Poland also ranked this list, and was the number one country of origin for the newcomers. But Lithuania and Romania were the second and third main countries of origin that year, followed by Latvia and the Czech Republic.
