V4 a popular place for residence

New statistics published by the European Union’s statistical service, Eurostat, show that the Visegrad region continues to be an attractive destination for third-country residency permits. For 2018, the numbers regarding first-time residency indicate that:

  • Poland ranked first across the EU28 with 635,335 permits for nationals from outside of the Union
  • Czechia (71,201), Hungary (55,739) and Slovakia (21,040) were below the EU28 average (103,050) in absolute terms

However, the V4 region scored better when the number of residency permits is divided per capita (expressed as per cent).
