International migration

In 2019, 150 419 immigrations and 109 806 emigrations resulted in an international net migration gain of 40 613 inhabitants. Continuing a longstanding trend, 4 343 more Austrian citizens left the country than emigrated back to Austria. At the same time, a migration gain of 44 956 people was recorded for foreign citizens in 2019, which was 12% higher than in 2018 (+40 017).

Three quarters of Austria’s net migration gains of foreign citizens originated from other countries within the European Union or EFTA-States(+33 497), whereas only one quarter were third country nationals (+11 459). In absolute terms, net migration gains from other countries within the European Union were comparable to 2018, whereas net migration gains of third country nationals increased by 43% (2018: +8 015). Romanian citizens represented the nationality with the largest net gain (+8 718), followed by German (+7 227), Hungarian (+4 036), Croatian (+2 860) and Bulgarian (+2 400) citizens.

At the regional level, Vienna remained the major destination of international immigration. In 2018, the Austrian capital received 35.8% of all international net-migration gains (+14 526), followed by Upper Austria (+6 956), Styria (+4 446), Lower Austria (+3 481) and Tyrol (+3 414). Within the provinces (NUTS 2), high net-migration gains were registered in the provincial capitals and their surrounding regions.
