However, 450 000 valid permits were counted in June 2014. The largest groups in June 2014 were the nationals of Albania (300 000 persons), Ukraine (17 000), Georgia (16 000), Pakistan (15 000), the Russian Federation and India (about 12 000 each).

Around 15 000 citizens of the United Kingdom were recorded, and about as many from Poland.
