In 2011 the total inflow of foreign nationals to Austria increased to 114 900 (17% more than in 2010). Outflows also increased to 73 400, 11% more than in 2010. Net immigration of foreign nationals, was 30% higher than in 2010. This increase in the net inflow of migrants was due to relatively strong GDP growth (+2.7%) in 2011 and to the expiration of employment restrictions for citizens of the EU8 countries. 59% of foreign nationals entering Austria in 2011 came from EU/EFTA countries; the largest share (one-fourth) came from the EU15, led by Germany, from which inflows have been stable in recent years. Increasing inflows were seen from the EU8, which comprised one-fifth of all inflows and from the EU2 (13%). Inflows from Bosnia-Herzegovina increased, as did those of citizens of the United States and countries in Africa and Asia, while net inflows of Turkish citizens decreased considerably.
