Czech Republic

After an unprecedented net migration outflow in 2013 due to the high numbers of emigrating foreigners, the Czech Republic registered a rise in net immigration in 2014 (+21 000 national and foreign residents) and in 2015 (+16 000). The number of immigrants in 2014 rose to 41 600 – the highest level since 2008 – and decreased slightly in 2015 to 34 900. Emigrant numbers fell to 20 000 in 2014 and 2015, 10 900 fewer than in 2013. Ukrainians continued to be the most numerous group, among both immigrants and emigrants, followed by Slovaks and Russians (among immigrants) and Czech citizens and Vietnamese (among emigrants). There was a small net emigration of Czech citizens.
