At 1.2 million and 800 000 persons, respectively, Germany’s migration inflows and outflows in 2013 have both reached the highest levels since 1994, according to the Federal Statistical Office. German citizens accounted for 10% of the inflow and 18% of the outflow. A small net outflow of 22 000 German citizens thus compared to a net migration inflow of 450 000 foreigners, again the highest level since the early 1990s. The highest net migration inflows came from other EU countries, notably Poland (72 000), Romania (50 000), Italy (33 000), Hungary and Spain (24 000 each). The largest net migration inflows from non-EU countries were recorded with the Russian Federation (18 000), Syria (17 000), Afghanistan, Serbia and China (7 000 each).
