Russian Federation

Migration inflows to the Russian Federation continued to rise in 2012-13. Permanent immigration to the Russian Federation in 2012 reached almost 418 000 people, 17% more than in 2011. In 2013, the number rose further to 482 000. Emigration rose from 33 500 in 2011 to 123 000 in 2012 and 182 000 in 2013. This partially reflects a change in Rosstat methodology: since 2011, temporary migrants whose residence lasts for more than nine months are included in immigration statistics and considered as emigrants when their registration period expires. Net migration to the Russian Federation was thus about 295 000 in both 2012 and 2013. Immigration has been dominated by migrants from CIS countries: Uzbekistan (21% in 2012, up from 18% in 2011), followed by Ukraine (12%), Kazakhstan (11%), Armenia (10%), Tajikistan (9%) and Kyrgyzstan (8%).
