In 2014, the total inflow of foreign nationals to Austria rose to 154 300 persons, an increase of 19 000 (14%) over 2013. Foreign nationals leaving the country numbered 76 500, a slight increase of 3% compared to 2013. Nearly two-thirds (64%) moved to European Economic Area (EEA) countries or Switzerland. This resulted in a positive net immigration of 77 700 foreign nationals, a 28% increase of 17 000 persons compared to the previous year. Factoring in the net outflow of 5 400 Austrian nationals in 2014 reduces the total net immigration rate to 72 300.
