More migrants in Luxembourg than any other EU country – Luxemburger Wort

It probably comes as little surprise to most residents that Luxembourg is the country that has opened its doors to more migrants than any other country in Europe. That’s according to Eurostatstatistics, but how do other countries compare?

The Grand Duchy leads Europe with more than 45% of the population being foreigners that are « attracted by its high standard of living », according to the EU’s statistical agency Eurostat, although employment opportunities play a major role.

This means that the country has opened its doors the widest in proportion to its demographic size.

However across the bloc, the story is not the same. Of the more than 500 million people in the European Union, some 34 million or less than seven percent are counted as migrants
