After high net emigration from Romania in recent years following the accession to the EU, official statistics on migration inflow (165 000 persons) approached those of outflow (172 000) in 2013, leaving a net emigration of only 7 000 persons. In 2007, by contrast, the official outflow had been more than six times higher than the inflow. An increase by 4.7% in the number of non-EU citizens moving to Romania (58 500 in 2013) contributed to closing the gap between the outflow and the inflow. Returning emigrants made up small proportions of the inflow, and even in counties with the highest emigration rates, return migration did not exceed 7% of the total immigration.
