Korea has experienced positive net migration of non-Koreans since the mid-2000s. In 2014, net migration was largely positive, reaching 136 500 compared to 92 400 the previous year. Labour migrants plateaued at 60% of all incoming foreign nationals, while students comprised 13% of entries and family migrants decreased to 10% of total inflows. The number of returning Korean nationals continued falling during 2014 but at a smaller pace, reversing their net emigration to a surplus of 5 100 persons.
