Emigration from Germany exceeded immigration.
Immigration to Germany remains at a low level. This is stated in the migration report for 2008, submitted by the government of Germany. For the first time in the last 24 years, more people left the country than moved to it.
More and more people are leaving Germany.
Immigrants in Germany are getting smaller. This conclusion is contained in the migration report of the Government of Germany for 2008, presented at a meeting on Wednesday, February 3. According to the data of this document, in 2008, just over 682,000 people moved to Germany for permanent residence – about the same as in each of the previous two years, according to the information agency dpa. However, this number is much lower than the figures of the end of the last century: in the first half of the 1990s, more than one million people immigrated to Germany annually.
The share of foreign citizens living in Germany among the entire population of the country since the mid-1990s remains almost unchanged-8.8 percent. The largest group of foreigners living in Germany is, as before, Turks – 25.1 percent. About 35 percent of the inhabitants of Germany are citizens of other EU countries.
