Hide / Show Abstract

Exact data on migration flows for Portugal continue to be difficult to obtain, because available sources mix different situations (e.g. new entries and status changes) and are unable to register the full magnitude of some inflows, namely the one of EU nationals. Estimates based on new residence permits and long-term visas suggest that in spite of the difficult economic situation in Portugal, overall migration inflows were slightly higher in 2009 than in 2008 (34 000 compared with 32 000). The National Statistics Institute (INE) estimates of net migration was positive, albeit at a low level of about 15 000.
